Infertility can be physically and emotionally challenging for women and men trying to have a baby. It can be a life crisis for many, often described as an emotional rollercoaster.
Infertility can also cause feelings of isolation. But, our patients are not alone. Support is available to help women and men cope with the ups and downs and the emotional challenges they may face while trying to conceive.

We encourage our patients to seek emotional support and help connect our patients with a support professional, to learn ways to cope with the stress and emotional challenges infertility can cause.
