Infertility and Loss
Whether you are worried about trying to conceive, engaging in Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) procedures, or struggling to process a perinatal loss, therapy can be a much-needed source of self-care. The sense of loss associated with multiple infertility cycles, miscarriages, and stillbirths are compounding in nature, and often resurface when faced with reminders such as a friend’s baby shower or having one’s menstrual cycle. Confusion, shame, sadness, anger, and disbelief about the unfair nature of this loss can lead to complicated grief, clinical depression, marital discord, and anxiety disorders. Often those around us may be uncertain of the "right thing” to say, which can heighten the existing sense of isolation. Therapy is geared toward processing your grief and rebuilding your identity to incorporate these losses as a part of your life story.
