Hidden from view…
Are you suffering emotionally because of your fertility struggles? Have you stopped being able to live life fully and freely? Perhaps you feel out of control of this part of your life, and are struggling to stay positive.
Do you find that you can get anxious for the next pregnancy announcement and are then unforgiving on yourself when feelings of jealousy and resentment bubble up? Sadly this is all so common, but is often hidden from view.
Stress, anger, overwhelm and sadness can all form part of the picture, along with fear – fear of failure, fear of the future or fear following previous failures or loss.
If you’re struggling emotionally, you’re not alone…
Perhaps you’re planning or are about to start medical treatment such as IVF or IUI, but feel emotionally unprepared for what lies ahead?
This may be your first attempt, your only attempt, your final chance or perhaps this time around follows on from previous failures. Fertility treatment interventions offer a precious opportunity but bring with them a whole new set of pressures.

The emotional rollercoaster…
Like thousands of women like you, you may be struggling in silence, on an uncontrollable emotional rollercoaster that leaves you more and more exhausted and despondent as time passes by. Avoiding friends, ducking out of family gatherings, burying yourself in work – are these perhaps some of the ways you have tried to take back control. Perhaps you’ve noticed a change in your connection with your partner, as you both try to navigate this difficult chapter of your life.
Do you want to start feeling differently?
Infertility has the potential to impact on every single part of your life. There can also be a sense of grief when you consider what you imagined this time in your life would look like. And perhaps the hardest thing of all is the uncertainty that inevitably surrounds the situation, as you are left wondering will it ever be my turn? If you want to start feeling differently about your fertility journey or would like support for what lies ahead, lets see if I can help.
