Support Groups – Facebook
So you’ve read the blogs, read the research, but at the end of the day…you really just want to chat with people that have been through the embryo adoption/donation process.
There are many amazing support groups out there. Many organizations have support groups specific to their programs, but we have found a few avenues that include people from all walks of life, adoption/donation paths, and different stages in the process. The following Facebook resources are available should you wish to pursue them:
Facebook Embryo Adoption/Donation Support Group – This group is open to both men and women that are at the beginning of, in the midst of, or have completed an embryo donation/adoption. The founder of this group saw a need for a searchable (but closed) facebook group and felt that many people could benefit from a support group for Embryo Adoption/Donation to navigate the ups and downs of the process.
Facebook Embryo Donation (Donors Only) Group – This group is open to both men and women that have/had embryos remaining after completing their family. This group is specific to Embryo Donors (only) that are at the beginning of, in the midst of, or have completed an embryo donation. The founder of this group saw a need for a forum to discuss the challenges, fears, tips, etc. that are specific to embryo donors.
