Upcoming Support Groups & Events

All groups will resume in the coming months, hand sanitiser will be available and if you are unwell, please stay home.  We look forward to seeing you all soon!

Our groups are casual and welcoming.  

Meetings often have themes or guest speakers to provide you with support and information. Research consistently shows in-person support has significant emotional and physiological benefits.  Email your nearest group for details and come along!  Many of our groups have private Facebook pages where you can get to know others before attending a meeting.

WE NEED YOUR HELP

We are currently seeking Group Support Facilitators in Taranaki and Nelson.  Ideally this involves two people in each region, supporting people in the community who are grappling with infertility.   
  
Group Support Facilitators are volunteers who hold coffee/support groups every four weeks in their area. They've come out the other side of their own fertility journey and realise the value of a supportive face-to-face environment. While this is a volunteer role, all costs of running the group are covered by Fertility NZ and we provide formal training, marketing, administrative and social media support as well as an ear when ever you need it.  

If you live in Taranaki or Nelson and have been waiting for an opportunity to give back in a meaningful way, or know of someone who may be interested, please contact: support@fertilitynz.org.nz for a position description.
