Fertility and IVF Coaching

You Just Received A Fertility Diagnosis. Now What?

There is nothing easy about receiving a fertility diagnosis. And when you first get diagnosed your head is racing with so many emotions, so many thoughts and so many questions. You might be asking yourself, “Why me?”, “What did I do to deserve this?” “What is infertility and what is IVF?” You may also be asking yourself “Where do I turn now?” What do I do?”

"Your current situation is not your final destination. The struggle you're in today is developing the strength you need for tomorrow."

Infertility Creates So Many Emotions

Receiving an infertility diagnosis can create many emotions. Depression, anxiety, frustration, anger, and confusion to name a few. These emotions are common and can come and go through your fertility journey. You find yourself quickly being asked to make important medical decisions quickly. You are being given medical terminology that can be confusing and fearful. Somehow you must quickly learn to accept what is versus what you had envisioned things to be or make peace with something you always wanted but might not be able to have.  

These decisions, feelings and situations can be painful, debilitating, overwhelming, scary, and exhausting. Navigating this new world of infertility is beyond difficult. And infertility and going through fertility treatments can put a strain on your relationship, on your physical and your emotional well-being.

Why The Mind-Body Connection Is So Powerful During IVF

Research shows approaching infertility and reproductive assistance treatments such as IVF from a mind-body perspective can be successful in reducing the common emotions associated with an infertility diagnosis, while supporting you and your well-being during this challenging and difficult time.
