Emotional Support, Virtually

Typically, Resolve New England provides in-person peer support groups throughout New England. Given the Covid-19 pandemic, our groups are now meeting on Zoom and are FREE. These virtual groups will continue through the end of 2021 and the schedule can be found for each group topic below. Pre-registration is required.

RNE Peer Support Groups are…

…free and virtual for anyone, anywhere.

…open to all individuals and couples building their families.

…confidential spaces for open discussion with others who understand infertility and family building challenges. 

…for those who are newly diagnosed, have been in the trenches for years or anywhere in between.

…led by volunteer peer facilitators who have experienced, or are currently experiencing, their own family building struggles.

…the cornerstone of our mission, since RNE’s beginning in Belmont, MA in 1974.
