Experiencing infertility can be traumatic for individuals and couples. It may even have you questioning the very reality you observe, or leave you feeling unable to handle things coming at you on a daily basis. Don’t allow fertility issues to rob you of your joy!
Infertility treatments are very demanding physically, as well as draining mentally and emotionally. Artificial reproductive treatments, can be emotionally overwhelming, uncomfortable and intimidating. Some of the normal feelings associated with infertility, and the ability to sustain pregnancy, include:
The stress you’re experiencing causes your body to release specific hormones. These are typically adrenaline and cortisol, which can be just as disruptive to our minds, as they are to our bodies. Counseling is an effective means for improving your ability to cope, exploring the impact of communication between you and your partner, the connection you share, reducing stress and promoting overall well-being. Moving forward, and to allow for long-term, positive change and personal growth, we will explore the connection between our thoughts, feelings and behaviors. A better understanding of these connections helps us to achieve total well-being, mind, body, and spirit. You are more than this medical diagnosis!
