I am a RESOLVE infertility support Helpline Volunteer.
In addition, I am the leader of a RESOLVE Peer Led Support Group in Brighton, MI, which is held on the third Monday of every month at the Brighton District Library.
When I first joined RESOLVE during the throes of my battle with infertility, I initially did NOT want to go to a support group. I didn't want to be a member of "this club," as I didn't know for sure if I really had an infertility problem. I was scared and overwhelmed. But I also knew I needed support. What I discovered was a group of intelligent and articulate infertility warriors who soon became my lifeline. I learned so much from this group of men and women and I learned that I was NOT alone. I was able to get the best advice from people who understood what infertility was all about. I was able to cry and be real with these friends... and believe it or not, I was even able to laugh a bit too. It was a great stress relief to be able to be among a group of individuals who truly "got it." What's more, studies show that if people are struggling with infertility, they have a 54% increased chance of becoming pregnant and having a child if they join a support group. Take a look at this video and you will see how invaluable joining a RESOLVE group is.
