Unfortunately, due to the current situation with Covid-19, our face-to-face support groups have been cancelled. However, Fertility Network Scotland can offer digital support via our WhatsApp Groups and Closed Groups on social media.

Our online fertility support groups offer a chance to meet up online, chat and share experiences with others who are also trying to conceive. It is a space to share your journey and listen to others’ experiences and provide mutual peer support and an opportunity to learn from others. You can participate as much, or as little, as you wish. There is no pressure to share if you prefer not to.

The groups in Scotland are made up of staff as well as volunteers, everyone in the group understands the struggles in trying to conceive.

We also try and organise the groups by area, where there are enough members, so some of you will share the same services or stay in a similar location.
