POI support group

A once a month support forum for young women with Premature Ovarian Insufficiency (POI). The aim is to both cover specific topics and provide space for wide ranging discussion on the emotional aspects of POI. Women with POI are welcome and are encouraged to attend regularly if possible.

We hope to provide a relaxed time where you can share concerns and gain support from each other. The group will be led by Claire Bellone, Clinical Nurse Specialist and Dani Singer, Specialist Counsellor. Specialist speakers will be invited to talk on subjects relating to POI.
