Infertility can rob you of the joy in the journey to pregnancy, especially when you lack support. It is understandable that you can feel a mix of emotions when seemingly every woman you know is getting pregnant and having babies, but you are not.
Women Struggling with Infertility
Even with fertility treatments like In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), there are gaps that no one can fill or questions no one can answer. This is where a Fertility Coach can help - they offer personalized and tailored support throughout your struggle with infertility.
Often after an infertility diagnosis, you can feel overwhelmed and stressed. This may lead to overthinking and emotional stress of researching every possible answer on the Internet to try to make sense of your condition, possible treatments, or even why treatments have failed.
Causes of stress during infertility can also include:
Disappointment from not being able to build a family as planned
Feelings of isolation
Pressure to make decisions around professional career
Coping with recurrent loss
Conflicts with partner
It is important to know that in order for fertility treatments to work, you should be well informed of what the treatments entail, and be calm throughout the procedures. This is to ensure that your body can be ready to conceive, and your emotions are stable to support your body going through the treatments.
Online Fertility Coaching Session
Fertility Coaching focuses on you as the whole person - not just the medical diagnosis. A Fertility Coach is someone who is experienced in counseling, psychology, coaching and has specialized knowledge in infertility as well as fertility treatments. Getting a Fertility Coach can help you to stay calm and positive throughout your struggles with infertility issues and fertility treatments such as IVF, IUI and others.
Apart from that, a Fertility Coach can guide you with the best diet and exercises so that you can stay at the best of health in your journey. Even when you have lots of questions in your head, a Fertility Coach will always be ready to explain how any process in your fertility treatment works, and what you should do to obtain the best outcome.

Improving relationships and providing marital counseling
Physical and emotional preparations in fertility treatments
Coping with a challenging pregnancy and preparing for birth
