Patient Support Groups

Meeting others in similar situations to you can provide emotional benefits and decrease any sense of isolation throughout your fertility journey. Melbourne IVF provides a variety of counsellor led and patient led support groups.

Some groups meet regularly, while others are held at different times throughout the year. We update the dates and details of the support groups regularly on this website.

Donor Egg Parents' Support Group

If you are a new or expectant parent with a baby from a donor egg, or if you are thinking about starting a family using egg donation, this group gives you the chance to meet others like you.

You can share your experiences, gather wisdom, or just enjoy the company of other parents and their kids, who are in a similar situation to you. This group offers a friendly, supportive and informative environment, and the opportunity to be part of a social network organising outings, dinners and family fun days.

We meet regularly every alternate month on a Thursday, from 10-12pm at 314 Church St, Richmond.

Following are the 2017 dates. Please note these occur on a Thursday:

  • 9th February
  • 6th April
  • 8th June
  • 3rd August
  • 5th October
  • 7th December

 

To find out more, please email Kyri and Helene. 

Single Mums' Support Group

This group meets every two months, supporting single women who are thinking about donor insemination or IVF treatment, or are having (or already had) a baby conceived in this way.

In a supportive environment, you can learn from others’ experiences, share your own, or just enjoy chatting to other mums like you – and their kids. In this way, you can benefit from support while encouraging others.

All meetings are from 10am to 12pm at Gallery 314 located at Richmond Uniting Church, 314 Church Street, Richmond (parking and access off Darlington Pde)

Following are the 2017 meeting dates:

  • 9th May
