Support Meetings

It is very important that you contact NISIG if you wish to attend any meeting as venue and dates are subject to change.

Fertility Treatments

Most people should consult a doctor after a year of trying to conceive unsuccessfully. This is the main sign of infertility.


Being a member of NISIG gives you access to information about your specific medical condition.

National Infertility Support and Information Group

The National Infertility Support and Information Group, a voluntary organisation, was established in 1996 by a group of dedicated people who needed and wanted to be in contact with others who understood their grief.

NISIG Can Help

The grief that is infertility needs to be attended to. It needs to be understood and acknowledged. That is where NISIG can help.

NISIG Empowers People

NISIG empowers people to contemplate real choices to guide them through their infertility journey. NISIG offers a confidential listening ear. NISIG is non-judgemental and multi-denominational.

Support Meetings

Bi-monthly meetings are held throughout Ireland.


Your donation can enable us to support others who are facing reproductive challenges.
