Infertility can be emotionally and physically draining for women and men alike. It can lead to complex feelings, such as failure, guilt, blame, regret and isolation. While these feelings may be new to an infertility patient, they are common responses. That’s why Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut (RMACT) offers infertility support groups for its patients and their partners. Participants find it helpful to learn new coping skills, as well as find comfort in meeting and sharing with others who are facing the same fertility challenges.
Infertility support groups, which take place throughout the year at our various Connecticut locations, are facilitated either by our licensed social workers or or peer-led by our staff.
Our licensed social workers and Integrated Fertility Wellness Team facilitate several support groups, some of which are designed around particular needs, such as third party reproduction, secondary infertility, single moms to-be, and more. Your nurse or patient navigator can provide additional information about any groups that may be helpful to you and your partner.
