Pregnancy & Parenting after Infertility Support Group
This peer-led support group alternates monthly between a
Play Group (dates TBD)
and a traditional meeting on the
fourth Wednesday of each month
Parenting after infertility has its emotional ups and downs. Just because you are now a parent or pregnant doesn’t mean your infertility journey ends. This support group addresses topics such as fears we face, our unique view of parenthood, postpartum depression, stresses with our unique route to parenthood including adoption and third party reproduction, and other relevant topics.

2017 Support Group Leaders
This support group is peer-led, meaning that the group leaders are everyday people who have personally experienced infertility. Although they are not professional counselors, our support group leaders are given training and support from the professional staff at UIRC.
