THE AMERICAN FERTILITY ASSOCIATION

INVITES YOU TO A

SUPPORT GROUP FOR WOMEN WHO ARE

INVOLVED IN THE PROCESS OF

EGG FREEZING...OR THINKING ABOUT IT

(Oocyte Cryopreservation)

A support group has formed for women who are considering, are involved in, or have completed the process of egg freezing.  We welcome women who would like to learn more about this option to potentially help preserve their fertility. Information is also presented that may help women in optimizing their reproductive health.    Come to explore key topics, share thoughts, questions and experiences, and connect in a mutually supportive atmosphere. Meetings are held close to Union Square in Manhattan, with free street parking nearby.  The next evening gathering is scheduled for Thursday, May 30, 2013 @ 6:50 p.m. Confidentiality is fully respected.                                               

Please contact Izetta Siegal Stern, LCSW, at (212) 691-1266 to pre-register prior to the meeting date, as space is limited.  Ms. Stern is a psychotherapist who has worked with individuals, couples and groups around fertility-related issues for well over twenty years.  For information on future meetings, please call or email

This group is sponsored by the American Fertility Association and was created at the request of women who have completed egg freezing.  Our group provides an independent resource  to support women in navigating every stage of this process.   

Meeting location is one block from Union Square, close to major transportation lines. Street parking is available.   

Meeting date: Thursday, May 30, 2013

Time: 6:50 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
