INFERTILITY AND PREGNANCY LOSS
Did you know that one in four women will suffer a miscarriage in their lifetime? Or that there are over 200,000 women in the USA dealing with infertility every single year?
The numbers may seem surprisingly high and yet, for those going through this trauma, it can feel incredibly isolating. Their medical team may not be trained to deal with the big emotions that come with infertility and pregnancy loss. Feelings of shame, guilt, pain, anxiety, extreme sadness and fear can leave women and their significant others feeling overwhelmed and hopeless.
This trauma can also cause a strain on relationships as people have different ways to cope with pain and stress. Couples may struggle with communication, intimacy and the ability to understand each other’s grief and pain. Or, one person may feel anger or guilt if they are the only one infertile.
Infertility and pregnancy loss is hard but does not have to be experienced alone. If you are feeling you have no one in your life that you can share your emotions with and receive the support you need, reach out to one of our trained counselors today. We are here to help you on this journey of completing your family!
