Eastern Pennsylvania Support Groups

There are two different types of support groups in Eastern Pennsylvania - Peer-led Support Groups and Professionally-led Support Groups.

 Peer-led Support Groups

RESOLVE Peer-led Support Groups are informal opportunities for women and men experiencing infertility to connect with one another, to discuss their situations and to receive support from others who have had similar experiences or who are struggling with similar issues. Group moderators are volunteers and are not mental health professionals. Attendance is free. Please contact the group host before attending your first meeting.

Don’t see a support group in your area? Want to start a new group? The first step in the process is to listen to a free one-hour TeleSeminar entitled “How to Start a Peer-Led Support Group”. After you listen to that training you will be given instructions on next steps in the process. We hope to make this process as simple and straightforward for you as possible, while also ensuring that our hosts have been adequately prepared for their role as group leader.

Please note the contact information below is provided only for those seeking a support group. The media and family-building professionals should not contact support groups directly; support group hosts will not respond. Media requests should be directed to  Andy Schwarz, Media Relations, at 703.556.7172 or Family-Building Professionals and Researchers should contact RESOLVE headquarters at For more information about RESOLVE Support Groups, please contact Betsy Campbell at

 Professionally-Led Support Groups

Professionally-led Support Groups are more structured than peer groups and form at various times throughout the year. They are led by trained and licensed therapists who are professional members of RESOLVE and specialize in assisting individuals and couples with the special challenges presented by the struggle of Infertility. Participation in professionally-led groups involves fees set by the individual therapist and a commitment to a specific number of sessions.
