Infertility and IVF treatment have been described by many patients as an ‘emotional rollercoaster’.
We understand that the Infertility treatment journey impacts on many levels namely financially, physically, emotionally and spiritually. This is often a path that one is not prepared for in life, we have no framework to deal with the intensity of emotions and stress that this journey brings.
Infertility is viewed as an emotional or psychological trauma that can happen at any time, to any person. Its nature is such that it overwhelms one’s ability to cope, it is unexpected and relentless. It creates feelings of powerlessness and helplessness.
However, when faced with these challenges and enormous decisions, counselling can often help patients to feel less isolated, and more empowered with the right knowledge; it helps validate their emotional response to this life crisis of infertility. Most importantly it helps patients to realize that they are not alone.
Our practice has an excellent team of therapists to assist you on this journey.
