Chelsea and Westminster Support Group

The once a month support forum for young women with Premature Ovarian Insufficiency (POI) is going in for its third season. The aim is to both cover specific topics and provide space for wide ranging discussion on the emotional aspects of POI around them. Women with POI are welcome and 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, the Clinical Nurse Specialist and Dani Singer, Counsellor. Specialist speakers will be invited to talk on subjects relating to POI.
