The journey to motherhood can be a lonely struggle marked by grief, feelings of failure, anxiety and depression when dealing with infertility. When faced with invasive medical interventions to help you have a child you may feel powerless over your body.
You don’t have to be one of the 6.7 million women in the United States dealing with infertility issues alone.
When confronted with grief from pregnancy loss, failed treatment cycles or treatment that spans months to years, psychological stress can take its toll on you. The deterioration in your mental health impacts your relationships, how you care for yourself and may eventually lead to you dropping out of treatment. Recent studies show that women who are undergoing fertility treatments are at risk for developing a mental health disorder, with anxiety and depression being the most common.
Feel Empowered and regain a sense of control.
If you feel psychologically supported and learn how to reduce your stress response, there will be a significant improvement in your quality of life and consequently pregnancy outcome. The same part of your brain that regulates your stress response also controls hormone function. This type of support allows you to feel empowered, regain a sense of control in your life and reduce the impact of anxiety and depression.
