Infertility support groups

Does anyone know if there are any infertility/IVF support groups in the south of England? Somerset/Dorset/Hampshire areas? Thanks

I don’t know of any your way, but I’ve been to a few myself in the north west. My clinic does a patient led monthly support group meeting managed via Facebook, with a guest speaker each month then an hour to mingle. Can you ask your clinic? Or even start one! But I’ve also gone to a few IVF meet ups that I’ve learnt about through Instagram - there is a huge IVF community on instagram, where meet ups are advertised and I’ve also connected with individuals who have similar issues to me who I have become friends with. My ivf account is onedaywewillbethree if you want to have a look.

I hope you can the support you are looking for xxx

Thank you for your reply Orla, I will check out Instagram. Unfortunately there appears to be a lack of support groups in the south.

Hi.

I don’t know if there are any ; I’m from same catchment area. I’m in North Dorset and attending Salisbury fertility clinic.

I hope someone can point you in the right direction 🙂 xoxo

Hi Jess, the only one I have found is at complete fertility in Southampton. It is open to anyone and the next one is on 23rd August. I know it's not very local but there appears to be nothing else around!

That’s quite disappointing. I might mention that to my fertility doctor when I next see him! xoxo

I looked on fertility network website, but didn't find much. Might be worth having a look on there for something more local for you. The only one I've found is in Southampton.

I went as a one off to see what it was like but they had cancelled it and not told me.
