Fertility Group Hull & East Riding was set up in March 2017 in association with the charity Fertility Network UK. We are a volunteer-led community group offering support and information to anyone in the Hull & East Riding area who is experiencing fertility issues. We hold monthly meetings to provide a confidential, supportive and judgement-free space for people to share their experiences and meet others who understand how they may be feeling.
Our members range from those in the early stages of trying to conceive, to those who have been through various rounds of fertility treatments. The support group sessions are friendly and informal, and no one is forced to share. Some people prefer just to listen on their first visit. Some members choose to attend alone, and others with their partner. Although fertility issues affect 1 in 7 UK couples, we know that there’s a lack of understanding and compassion in our society. Our objective is simply to bring people together to offer support and share coping strategies.
We are here purely to offer emotional support, but sometimes we host information sessions on topics our members want to know more about. In the past we have had talks from nutritionists, fertility counsellors and the Hull IVF unit. All our sessions are free and don’t require registration.
We would like to thank Fertility Network UK for their support, and Hull Community and Voluntary Services for generous funding.
