FREE Telephone Support Group - Managing Your STRESS During Infertility Treatments
“ I work long hours, have some family problems, and am trying to work on our relationship…ALL on top of trying to get pregnant.!! Is my stress causing my inability to conceive?”
“ I’m afraid to try another IVF without getting my stress under control. Are failed IVF cycles causing the stress, or stress causing the failed IVFs?”
“ I have lots of friends who have huge anxiety and still manage to get pregnant. My husband says I need therapy to reduce my stress in order to conceive. Trying to get rid of my stress IS making me more crazy!”
ALL of us are too familiar with the stress that accompanies the infertility journey. For some of us this tension makes our goals even more difficult to achieve. We will be sharing our stress and will learn helpful strategies to diffuse and manage our worries and anxieties. Join us for a FREE TELEPHONE SUPPORT session with others who are experiencing similar issues moving towards a successful pregnancy.
WHEN: Wednesday, April 24th
TIME: 9:00 PM to 10:00 PM, Eastern time
