How Does It Work

Our group is a "drop in" group, which means you do not have to RSVP for each meeting. The facilitator leads discussions based on topics that the group provides or brings educational materials and topics for discussion. Most topics are suggested by the members of the group and are areas where members feel they or others need support.

You are welcome to bring only yourself, parnter, spouse, or any other friend or family member either to support you.

Q: What happens if a group member becomes pregnant?

A: Our group has decided that a pregnant member will send an email to Andrea (the facilitator) and that will be forwarded to members who attend. The group will allow the pregnant member to attend for the first few months, but must refrain from attending once she starts showing. The group will welcome the pregnant member (and partner/spouse, etc) back once the baby has been born. Our group wants to be understanding that even after a pregnancy, the infertility journey does not end and can be complicated. We want to support you.

If you have specific questions or would like to suggest topics, please email Andrea at cviplsg@gmail.com.
