Fertility: Hope, Grieve, Repeat

Infertility impacts your quality of life. You expected to get pregnant when you wanted to and each month you feel hope and disappointment. Month after month you grieve the loss of what might have been. For some, months turn into years and include pregnancy loss and treatment failure. Infertility can feel like a roller coaster ride of of hope and grief and has been described as one of the most difficult challenges a woman can face. If you have been trying to conceive for over 6 months it’s time to talk to a fertility counselor. During an infertility counseling session we will explore the social, emotional, relational, physical and medical impact infertility is having on you. Research has shown that getting psychological support during treatment can increase the likelihood that you will stay in treatment to achieve a pregnancy. Learn about my IVF Coaching Mini-Series and get the support you need.

Infertility is not just a woman’s problem. Research has shown that the medical cause of infertility is about 1/3 male factor, 1/3 female factor and 1/3 a combination of both male and female issues. However, the emotional distress of infertility is 100% a couple’s problem and communication and intimacy are top issues. As an infertility expert for over 7 years, I help couples work through emotional and relational stress using various therapeutic techniques.
