Support events

Supporting you on your journey.

When you're going through fertility treatment, it can be a daunting process. We understand that there may be things you would like to talk about with other people also going through IVF.

Our support events

We have a range of monthly patient support events which are accessible for all patients, regardless of your stage in the IVF journey.

Our monthly events include our Fertility & IVF Support Group at CARE Nottingham and CARE Sheffield, Online Skype Webinars, 'Walk N Talk' Events and the CARE Buddy System.

For more information & to book your place on any of the events below, please e-mail Kelly, our CARE Support Coordinator:

Meet other people going through the IVF journey in the comfort of your own home and learn some useful techniques for dealing with the emotional aspects of your IVF journey. 
Each session will have a theme and input from either Kelly our support coordinator or guest speakers. There will be opportunities to talk about your experience, if you wish, and ask questions about dealing with the emotional and social aspects of IVF.

Get your walking boots on and join us once a month for a gentle 5K Walk ‘n’ Talk in the beautiful Peak District.
Walk ‘n’ Talk Therapy provides a unique method of support. Instead of a formal therapy approach, these sessions are relaxed and informal, taking place whilst walking in the English countryside. This method is perfect if you want to incorporate exercise and fresh air whilst gaining support and connecting with others going through the IVF journey.
