Infertility… Why Me?


Discovering that getting pregnant was not as easy as you had hoped can be a devastating blow. It can often feel that you are in a tornado of emotional exhaustion, frustration and fear as you begin to navigate the next steps in fertility journey. Well intended questions of “Are you pregnant yet?” and         “Everything happens for a reason” are starting to wear on you. Meanwhile, with your heightened hopes and sensitivity, it feels like everyone around you is pregnant or holding their baby…compounding the heaviness in your heart.


If you are experiencing trouble achieving your desired pregnancy, you are not alone. The wonderful news is there are many available options to help you reach your goal including ovulation induction, Intrauterine Insemination, IVF, gestational carriers, adoption and a wide array of other treatments mixed in the list. In addition, research shows that ancillary support services such as counseling, acupuncture, massage, yoga and more show promising results in increased potential of getting pregnant.


No one needs to tell you how emotional challenging this can be for you and the important relationships in your life. Counseling is a proven way to reduce the stressors of Infertility, develop coping skills, learn to adequately communicate what you are going through with loved ones, and provide optimal self care that is so critical in this journey. Additionally, couples counseling can help you and your partner survive the feelings of pain, inadequacy, derailed intimacy and feeling disconnected that can often present itself in the methodical nature of fertility treatments.


Take time to make sure you are emotionally supported as you venture into your fertility journey.


You are not alone.
