Is Fertility Counselling for Me?

The road to conception can be exciting, scary, overwhelming, frustrating, and exhausting all at once. Every couple’s fertility journey is unique and many experience unexpected challenges which may be related to specific reproductive conditions, unexplained infertility, or pregnancy loss due to miscarriage. No matter the cause of your difficulty, it is normal to feel alone or left behind, sad, anxious, stressed, or a powerful sense of loss of the hope that it would be easy to conceive. It is also normal for it to be extremely difficult to let go of a planned timeline for your pregnancy and you may feel overwhelmed by choices and decisions, and a profound sense of a loss of control. 

What Can I Gain from Fertility Counselling?

1.Emotional support

Assistance with exploring and processing mental and emotional challenges including

grief/loss, guilt, anger, shame, and sadness that you may have experienced during your fertility journey.
