Infertility Network UK, the leading patient fertility charity, launched its first dedicated patient information, advice and support service in Wales in a ceremony at the National Assembly for Wales on December 2nd. The launch was led by Darren Millar, Shadow Minister for Health and Older People in Wales. Chief Executive, Susan Seenan tells us more

“We are delighted to be launching a patient support service in Wales. For the first time in many years, all those who struggle to become parents will have a local patient support service that understands their particular problems, addresses regional issues and challenges and is locally managed.”

The new service, which was made possible by an award from the Big Lottery Fund, will enable the charity to set up face-to-face and online support groups, a Wales-specific information service, employ a Welsh co-ordinator to manage the service and hold annual patient information events.

Michaela, 25, from Monmouthshire has five years’ experience of infertility. She told us about her experience.  “Struggling with fertility problems is lonely and isolating; it can be hard to find the advice and support you need. Local face-to-face support groups here in Wales and online information and advice will be invaluable in helping anyone facing the daily pain and grief that fertility problems cause.”
