People of Color Family Building Support Group (MD, VA, and D.C. patients)

Apr8

When: Apr 8, 2023 | 2:30 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. ET

Where: Online

April 8 @ 2:30 pm 4:00 pm

*Offered to patients in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, D.C.*

Infertility can be a lonely experience. This is particularly true with the Black/Indigenous/People of Color (BIPOC) population as many people may think that infertility/reproductive problems don’t exist in the community. In this group you will be able to connect with others who are experiencing the stress and distress of treatment.

This virtual group focuses on all types of infertility issues and will help individuals and couples: 

  • Identify and practice ways to cope with infertility 
  • Share new information 
  • Understand about the unique losses of infertility/pregnancy loss 
  • Improve communication with your partner and others 
  • Process decision-making about treatment 
  • Provide support to one another 
  • Decrease the isolation of infertility

The monthly group meets virtually and is FREE for all participants. Registration is required at least 48 hours before the group event. You must be a current SGF patient in the DMV area and provide the office you go to and your doctor’s name. You will be asked to join an email distribution list for the group. An email will be sent to you with a consent form that must be filled out before you can attend the virtual group. When you fill out the consent and return it to the group leader via email, you will then receive an invitation with a link to the video meeting. Please note that the group may be canceled if there are too few people registered. The group leader will contact you by phone or email if the group will not be held as scheduled. We can only have a maximum of 20 participants per group so if the group is at maximum capacity, you will be asked if you would like to be on a waiting list to join if a spot opens up. 

The first group will begin on January 14, 2023 at 2:30 pm
