About this group

NISIG is the only group in Ireland offering nation-wide support group meetings, workshops and other events and services for those facing infertility and struggling to conceive. They also hold events for families formed through ART. They also advocate for same in government and media. They are largely volunteer run and rely on donations and sponsorship to fund operations.

Reasons to support this group

  • Infertility affects 1 in 6 in Ireland, which means that we each know at least one person who is facing or who will face infertility, whether we are aware of it or not.
  • Infertility often leads to a grueling, years long commitment to medical treatment, before success is reached. Many people suffer in silence throughout this time. There is a huge need to increase awareness around infertility and to lift the stigma and silence that often goes hand in hand with infertility. Supporting NISIG can help to achieve this.
  • People who attend NISIG support meetings, often find the support needed to continue treatment, and ultimately form their families. Supporting NISIG will ensure that individuals and couples continue to receive this support.
