Infertility Counseling & Education

Infertility Counseling & Education

Infertility can take control of your life, but it does not have to define it. There is a silver lining to be found so that you can live a happy and fulfilled life in spite of your struggle with fertility.

A wide spectrum of emotions are associated with infertility, as unique as those experiencing them. Highs and lows are normal, but can be challenging. The medical treatment process, uncertainty, lack of control, and navigating a long list of decisions are all part of the journey.  Taking care of yourself is important and so is keeping a positive perspective, both of which are not always easy when faced with difficulty.
