Who We Are

Formed in 1982 by a small group experiencing infertility, NISIG originally provided peer-to-peer support for men and women going through infertility treatment cycles.

Since then, the world has changed considerably and as a membership organisation our services have evolved into four main areas:

1. Support Meetings, which we continue via Zoom, offering facilitated peer-to-peer support.

2. We provide phone support to people experiencing infertility issues

3. Family Conversations: we realise that families formed through fertility treatment can face some challenges such as telling children about their origins, so we are keen to offer services in this area.

4. Lobbying and advocacy on behalf of our members.

Book Launch

NISIG is thrilled to announce the launch of a series of children’s books, the first DC children’s books produced in Ireland:


“A Special Gift – A Sperm Donation Story”

“A Special Gift – An Egg Donation Story”


NISIG’s first two books will focus on explaining donor conception to young children in a fun and engaging way, helping parents to start the discussion of donor conception with their children.

Many thanks to HSE Community Healthcare for funding this project and our author Sadhbh Devlin and illustrator Tarsila Krüse.
