Often those struggling with infertility issues can feel left out of conversations with other women about children. Unfortunately, they feel like they aren’t part of that club. Club Hope strives to be a place were those struggling with infertility issues can feel like they belong. It is a place where women can share their tears and their hopes.
Our monthly meetings is primarily for women in the Vancouver, WA / Portland, OR metro area.
We have ladies who are at various places in the infertility journey (new diagnosis and weighing options, receiving IVF, adopting, secondary infertility, etc.). We usually get between 5-10 women each month.
We occasionally do joint events and invite spouses too.
Each meeting is unique. We always give people a chance to share what is going on in their life that month (sharing is not mandatory). Some meetings we discuss certain topics as a group (Ex. dealing with family and friends who are pregnant, potential medical procedures, hard days, what helps you deal with your infertility, etc). Other meetings we will bring in special speakers to talk about particular issues (Ex. adoption, when is it wise to seek counseling, medical procedures, etc.)
