What is Infertility Counseling?
Infertility is a painful struggle. In the United States 10-15 % of couples have difficulty getting pregnant or sustaining a pregnancy. Even with the support of your partner, loved ones and medical team, you may feel isolated, confused, and beat down during your journey. Physically, countless tests, procedures, medications, and schedules can leave you feeling desensitized, disconnected, and robotic. Emotionally, stress, loss, fear, and failure can lead to feelings of anxiety, depression, and complicated grief.
Infertility counseling can support you during this difficult time by providing a safe space for you to navigate the physical, emotional, and relational challenges of your journey in a healthy and productive way. Identifying and understanding emotions, working through trauma and loss, exploring options and goals, managing family dynamics and strengthening relationships are all important aspects of infertility counseling.
