Intended Parents Support and Advice

One of the few things that kept us sane during our infertility journey was support and advice from people who ‘got it’.

 Infertility is hard enough as it, there is no reason why you should go through this unsupported.

Fertility Counseling

Counselling gives you the opportunity to understand your responses & develop your coping skills as an individual & as a couple.

Implications Counseling

This counseling helps you understand what the treatment will involve and how it may affect you and those close to you- now and in the future. Implications counseling is particularly helpful if you are going through donor gamete cycles or a surrogacy

Supportive Counseling

This offers the opportunity to work through your feelings at specific stages in your treatment. It may also be helpful in developing your stress resilience through mindfulness practices.

Therapeutic Counseling

Dealing with infertility can make you feel depressed or anxious at times. The process can also trigger painful memories that impact your life and your relationships with other people.
