No one expects obstacles in getting pregnant, having children, or carrying a baby to term. Infertility and pregnancy loss can touch the lives of women and their families at many different levels. However, the impact of these adverse events often go unnoticed and unacknowledged, increasing the chance of them becoming a trauma for those who are affected.

 

Diagnosis of infertility and pregnancy loss can bring up a sense of loss and failure, shame and guilt, anger, isolation, self-blame, confusion around your identity, a sense of being betrayed by your body, partnership difficulties, lack of desire for intimacy, etc. If you have been trying to conceive for some time without success, then your days might be filled with moments of shuttling between hope and despair. Other unresolved issues from your past or current life can also be triggered by these issues, making it all the more complicated. The pressure from yourself, your partner, family, and society to have children in order to “complete your family,” whether obvious or subtle, may be weighing on you so much that you might be having a hard time getting yourself motivated and remaining hopeful.



Counseling Can Help

Infertility and pregnancy loss are such unique experiences that you may find your best friends, close family members, or even your partner unable to understand the impact these issues have on you. Whether your goal is to go through infertility treatments and successfully conceive, come to the right decision for you and your family regarding infertility treatments, or grieve your loss in a safe and supportive environment, counseling can be a great resource by helping you to: 


  • Practice acceptance of reality as it is, while staying open to all possibilities
  • Be connected to your own inner process regarding infertility and pregnancy loss
  • Be empowered to make the choice that feels right for you and your family regarding treatment or lack thereof
  • Explore difficult emotions such as shame, guilt, anger, fear, regret, etc.
  • Restore/maintain a healthy relationship with your body
  • Recognize what you have lost and allow yourself to grieve
  • Make meaning out of your experience 
  • Communicate your grieving process and needs with your partner, and be able to allow your partner to grieve in his/her way
  • Find and reach out for the right support
  • Increase self-love and self-care


Infertility and pregnancy loss are inherently difficult as they challenge a fundamental value we have as human beings. However, there are resources to help you get through this difficult time and you do not need to struggle by yourself.

Get the support you deserve. No one should have to cope with such a loss alone.
