Many people keep their infertility problems private. But there's often a well-meaning relative or friend who nags about when the babies will come until someone leaves the room in tears. The thing is, even in a close family you often just don't know.

Infertility can be a hard topic to navigate with friends and family asking those sensitive questions we all find hard to answer. Can you relate to some of these questions from this article on “what not to say to friends without kids”.
Please join our regional support representative for their first group this December 2016 in Whangarei.
Whangarei - Wednesday December 7th at 7.00pm - please contact Charlotte on email@example.com to register.
If you are interested in using your event to fundraise for Fertility NZ, we can happily provide you a branded sports t-shirt. We have a Give a Little page for your fundraising – and proceeds of this go towards running our Regional Support groups.
Contact Fleur on firstname.lastname@example.org or 0800 333 306 to discuss. https://givealittle.co.nz/org/FertilityNZ
