It is very important that you contact NISIG if you wish to attend any meeting as venue and dates are subject to change.
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 and support at every stage of the journey.
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.
Bi-monthly meetings are held throughout Ireland.
Your donation can enable us to support others who are facing reproductive challenges.
Infertility Can Be An Isolating and Lonely Experience
We attended several general support meetings and it was so helpful and reassuring for us to talk in a safe space with others also ‘in the trenches.’
I attended a support meeting not long after a miscarriage through treatment, feeling crushed and low, and found the gentle and compassionate support invaluable. It was also hugely beneficial to my husband as he encountered his own fertility diagnosis and was able to meet other men in similar situations with similar feelings.
The support of NISIG as we moved on to donor conception was key to our understanding and acceptance of this path – the facilitated donor support meetings contributed greatly.
I have formed a number of close friendships with couples I have met through NISIG and am grateful beyond words for these.
It was like a breath of fresh air amidst the suffocation that is infertility. Through the connections we made, we found the strength to keep trying and would not have our amazing family if it weren’t for the sense of support and community we found in NISIG.
I found the NISIG meetings very informative. It was good to hear other people’s experiences about clinics and what treatments worked and didn’t work for them. It’s also a good place to share and connect with couples who are going thru the same process. A place to let go and be open and not be judged.
I liked how warm and authentic the afternoon was. This is an intangible quality. It really felt like a community – and this was only my first NISIG event!
It was a revelation and so normalising, to learn that ALL KINDS of families use donors, for all kinds of reasons.
To have somebody I can telephone anytime I feel low and need to chat with who understands what I am going through is overwhelming, thank you…
