Together, with our partner
We’re rebuilding our nationwide support group communities and helping thousands (re)gain their emotional strength.
How can a RESOLVE Support Group help?
Many people struggling with infertility feel isolated, and that feeling has been compounded by the pandemic. RESOLVE's support groups provide a safe space to meet others facing similar struggles with infertility and family building. The pandemic has impacted our support groups with many groups unable to meet in person, leaving huge gaps of support in communities for people who need it most. Together, with First Response™, we're committed to bringing new support groups to all 50 states in 2022.
It's been noted that emotional support while struggling to build a family can:
increase success rates for those in medical treatment
keep patients in the treatment process
help combat high rates of depression and anxiety among infertile couples (higher rates than fertile couples)
help process all the options they have to build a family
Is a Support Group Right For Me?
If you answer "Yes" to any of these statements, consider joining a RESOLVE support group:
Infertility is affecting my work and career.
I feel that my life plan is out of control.
I’m having trouble navigating through my medical treatment options.
I can’t decide when “enough is enough.”
Holidays and coping with family and friends is becoming more and more difficult.
I’m feeling lonely and isolated.
I have very few people to talk with about my infertility.
No one understands.
Everyone I know is pregnant or has children.
My partner is the only one I have who provides emotional support.
What We Do
