**For patients in Maryland, Virginia, or Washington, D.C. at the time of group sessions**
This virtual group is for single women who are building their families with the use of a sperm donor, and not with a partner or co-parent. Women come in all stages of the process: those who are contemplating becoming single mothers, those who are in the preliminary testing phase, and those undergoing treatment. Patients who have been in the group while in treatment at Shady Grove may stay through their fertility process.
Women gather to share their experiences and strategies. The process of pursuing treatment to become a parent while single is unique, and this group has a unique way of understanding and supporting one another. There is a sense of community that is built in this virtual room.
Registration is done in a two-step process and you must be a current SGF patient to join. Please email Dr. Miller with your location, name of your SGF doctor and location of your SGF office and she will add you to her email list. She will also send you some forms to complete prior to registering for group. Dr. Miller sends an email call out to all those on her list approximately one week prior to the group session.
The group is FREE for all participants.
The groups have limited numbers of spots.
For more information, please email Carol Miller.
