Stuti is running to raise money for Fertility NZ to support others going through their own infertility journey's.


My relationship with Fertility New Zealand started about 3 years ago, though my (in/sub) fertility journey began much earlier. From hysterosalpingogram (HSG), lipiodol, Intrauterine insemination (IUI), uterus wall scrapping and In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF); I have had it all done. Just when we decided to ‘move on’, I got pregnant with my miracle child. Through all this, Fertility New Zealand has been an excellent support system. They have wealth of knowledge and have always guided me in the right direction. We have made some life-long friends during this journey. When my little angel turned 4 months, I decided it’s time for me to help the support system who supported me. After 2 half marathons and ‘round the bays’ in Auckland (before pregnancy), I am keen to run in Taupo. This year on my 36th birthday I’ll be doing a 10Km run while my then 10 month old daughter and husband will be cheering me along.

About us

Having the choice to create a family is a fundamental part of our humanness – encountering difficulties in having or completing a much-wanted family is unexpected and can be very challenging to deal with. The confusion, frustration and grief encountered with fertility problems are invisible and often not understood by family and friends or even by health professionals, which can leave people feeling very isolated. Intense feelings such as anger, sadness and grief are a natural part of dealing with fertility problems. However these feelings are often minimised and invalidated by others, so support from people who understand is especially helpful.

Fertility NZ was founded in 1990 and is a national organisation with regional branches around New Zealand and is a registered charity. Much of Fertility NZ’s work is carried out by dedicated volunteers.

Use of funds

Fertility Ne Zealand use funds to provide support to the trying-to-conceive community around the entire country.
