Fertility New Zealand walks alongside all people facing fertility challenges.

Support Groups

Fertility New Zealand has a network of established support groups throughout the country.  Research shows that in-person support has significant mind and body benefits.  All of these groups are run by dedicated volunteers - people who understand how valuable support is whilst dealing with fertility issues.  Each regional support group is run differently, but most meet monthly and are either free or nominal cost (Auckland Fertility Support Series only).  All welcome new people, so contact your local representative today, and go along to meet others 'in the same boat'.  Our Support Group Guidelines for Engagement outline how the groups work, and our expectations of participants.  For a list of upcoming events, see our Regional Events Calendar.
