Support Groups

MAIA support groups provide the opportunity to receive emotional support and experience camaraderie with others who are going through a similar process.  Led by midwife and fertility expert Kristin Kali, these groups are informative, comforting and normalizing of your experience.  MAIA support groups are currently available in Seattle and online.
