How Infertility Affects You
For some of us, starting a family is the most difficult thing we have tried to do. Infertility can cause much grief and heartbreak. Many therapists who work in this area do not have the background to understand the complex and changing procedures involved. A higher level of understanding is needed to look at the hard questions regarding assisted reproductive therapy, donor conception, and adoption. Pam Richey has the knowledge to help you look at the options, ask all the questions – not only the technical ones – and make the best decision for yourself.
Infertility can also cause an emotional crisis. Strong relationships can falter, even fall apart. Conflicted relationships can become more difficult. Often, couples find it difficult to discuss their feelings. That’s why it’s good for couples and individuals to have a safe place to discover answers and strategies to deal with the complicated, painful process of infertility. If you live in Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill or nearby, Pam’s office or the Mind/Body program site can be your safe place.
