Are you struggling to build a family? Are you currently pursuing treatment or considering adoption? Are you looking for an opportunity to connect with others on a similar journey?
Seattle Peer-Led Support is a free, drop-in support group affiliated with RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association.
This is a general infertility support group with diagnoses ranging from male factor, female factor, to unexplained, and everything in between. Participation and regular attendance are completely optional. Both men and women are welcome, couples, single people, and those who are experiencing primary and secondary infertility. We encourage members, as time allows, to seek further support through the breakout support groups available, such as those for secondary infertility, third party reproduction (donor- or surrogacy-assisted family-building), and pregnancy and parenting after infertility.
We encourage you to come see that you’re not alone. Our community understands tears. We also enjoy a surprising amount of laughter and relief. New friendships are born. And people graduate into parenthood and/or a new chapter of their lives.
Our meetings include a group lending library, social intermission, and occasional guest speakers. The majority of our meeting time is open discussion.
Since beginning in October 2015, the Resolve support group has been peer-led by multiple volunteers who have experienced their own (usually primary) infertility diagnosis and often pursued or are pursuing treatment, sometimes adoption, and sometimes the help of a third party, such as surrogacy. For those considering adoption, we encourage further connecting with the great AWAIT group through Adoptive Friends & Families of Greater Seattle.

Please see our Meeting Schedule page for program information and directions. We meet the fourth Wednesday of each month from 6:30 – 8:30 pm at the Greenwood Masonic Center.
