It’s not that everything in life has always come easy for you… and infertility certainly isn’t the first thing that has been difficult in your life.
But, this feels worse.
Maybe it’s because with infertility, it’s the first time you don’t have a clear next step.
There’s no obvious right answer.
You feel anxiety over second-guessing every little decision.
And even when you feel confident about the next step you’ve chosen, there’s only so much control you have in taking that step.
Top it all off with having to battle the well-intentioned-but-never-helpful comments from family and friends….
The doctor’s appointments that mean you have to be away from your regular routine…
The secrecy with not wanting too many people to know because then they judge and offer their own opinion and suggestions.
(Yes, thank you, I WILL try just relaxing and maybe stop trying so then it will magically happen *emoticon eye roll).
There’s even added tension in your marriage and on your bank account.
The financial stress of infertility alone is enough to send any successful person into anxiety.
Infertility counseling is a place where you can share the ugly truth, the fears, and the tears of fertility treatments.
Infertility counseling can help you sort through all these roller coaster emotions and find a sense of yourself again.
You can be rid of these out-of-control feelings.
Infertility counseling can even help you stay connected with your spouse.
How would your days be different if you were able to silence unhelpful thoughts and respond to well-meaning friends without breaking down in tears (or stuffing the tears back in)?
What if you could speak your truth to friends and family, be honest about your emotional boundaries around all things baby-related?
What would it mean for you and your partner if you were able to regain the feeling of hopefulness you had when you first decided to grow your family?
You can feel hopeful about growing your family again. Infertility counseling tailored to your specific experience can help.
No two families have the same fertility journey, and at The Joy Effect, we want you to have an experience authentic to your true self and your personal values.
