Pregnancy Loss & Infertility
Struggling with infertility or the loss of a pregnancy? Are you finding yourself avoiding friends and family? Bursting into tears or fits of anger at inappropriate times? Struggling to be happy for others with growing families?
Although there is considerable variation in individual reactions to infertility and pregnancy loss, research is beginning to highlight the possibly traumatic nature of this specific life event and struggle.
Although too often not spoken of publicly, the ongoing stressor of fighting infertility can be brutal both physically and emotionally, leaving women feeling broken and partners feeling helpless.
For those whose pregnancies do not make it successfully to term, the result can be equally devastating. In fact, research now suggests that one-month following pregnancy loss, approximately 25 percent of women will actually meet criteria for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
You do not need to (and should not) suffer alone. With two counselors on staff specializing in Women’s Issues and the trauma and suffering unique to infertility and pregnancy loss, we can help you get to the other side of this.
