Fertility Support

Charities and Organisations

British Fertility Society

"We know how challenging it can be to find accurate information online about what can be some quite complex scientific areas. The British Fertility Society is dedicated to promoting expert medical practice based on scientific evidence. You may be seeking information for yourself, your partner, a family member or a friend or you may simply be curious."

"The national charity, here for anyone who has ever experience fertility problems."

Miscarriage Association
"If you've experienced miscarriage, molar pregnancy or ectopic pregnancy, the M.A. is here to help you through."

Saying Goodbye
"...provides comprehensive information, advice, support and much more to anyone who has suffered the loss of a baby, at any stage of pregnancy, at birth or in infancy."

Tommy’s
"We fund research into miscarriage, stillbirth and premature birth, and provide pregnancy health information to parents.

We want every parent to have the best possible pregnancy outcomes and to take home happy, healthy babies."

Online Communities, Influencers and Podcasts

A really great place to get support is on the internet. There are lots of communities out there talking about infertility - online and across Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. You might need to try a few to get the right ones for you, but here are examples of the popular hashtag communities:
#ttc
#infertilitysucks
#fertilitysupport
#fertilityawareness

There are lots of social media accounts in the TTC (trying to concieve) and baby loss communities.
Here are some of the big ones:
Izzy Judd
Elle Wright
Infertility Bloke

And there are podcasts on the subject too:
The Fertility Podcast
Big Fat Negative Podcast
Fertility Life Raft

There are also a number of ‘real life’ support organisations which have meet-ups. Look online to find one that suits you, such as:

Rainbow Running Club
A running and cake club for anyone affected by infertility or loss happening UK wide.

IVF Babble
"A fresh and innovative magazine for both women and men, it brings you the latest weekly fertility news with IVF breakthrough updates, nutrition and health tips along with expert advice."

There are plenty of other charities, organisations, hashtags, influencers, podcasts and meet-ups out there that might be better suited to you, so please have a look around and search online.
