You are probably living your life around the days in a “cycle” and having well-meaning friends and family members advise you to just “relax.” Unfortunately, infertility is not readily understood or talked about in our society, which may lead to feeling very different or defective from other women. Anger and despair may arise when everywhere you turn, you see another pregnant woman. As you are walking this difficult, painful journey to build a family, you may react by withdrawing socially and thus feel more alone. No matter how the advances in medical treatment and technology can “assist” you in realizing your quest to have a baby…Mother Nature can be stubborn. And we aren’t always prepared for how much emotional support we really need to persevere.
Sometimes women feel confused or uncertain about which course of action is right for them and need a non-biased, compassionate place to sort those emotions out. I will help you vent you frustration with the medical process and professionals, cope with your strong emotions, find alternative ways to manage your anxiety, encourage greater self care, and teach you how to be your own “BEST” advocate to maximize your chance for success. It is also vital that you nurture your relationship and not lose sight that you are in this together. I stand ready to support you “fight a good fight.”
