The Benefits of Fertility Coaching

 
By Reproclinic Editorial Committee
 

If you are going through infertility and your emotions are all over the place, you are not alone. In fact, this journey is a roller coaster of emotions. In a recent study, patients going through fertility challenges have reported that 90% felt depressed, 42% felt suicidal, 50% reported it was the most upsetting experience of their lives and 4 in 10 experienced PTSD after miscarriage.

These feelings may be triggered for different reasons:

  • not being able to grow your family when you want, and the way you had planned
  • stigma and social pressure
  • feelings of isolation
  • financial pressure
  • need to make/delay decisions around professional career
  • coping with recurrent loss
  • and the emotional stress of making important decisions as a couple, who may at certain times, feel differently about motivation to treatment, length and type of treatment, have different coping strategies, or different opinions on what to do when treatment fails.

 

The bottom line is that regardless of how complex a physical problem may be impacting on your fertility, it is actually the emotional distress that will probably make you quit treatment.

 

What is Fertility Coaching?

 

A way of getting support is through Fertility Coaching. A fertility coach is someone who guides you in your journey. Often, they have been through it themselves and can relate to the challenges you are going through. Apart from personal experience, a fertility coach also has a particular set of professional skills and competencies to provide the emotional and physical support that people require. This often includes a medical degree (to understand the physical aspects of fertility) and a CBT/NLP coaching qualification (to provide emotional support).

 

The support provided by a fertility coach may be emotional, covering all the aspects discussed above, and/or physical, helping you with practical aspects of fertility treatment like medication, making changes to your diet, environment etc.

  • Here’s a small list of aspects that a fertility coach can help you with
  • Managing anxiety, stress, depression, expectations
  • Communication and difficult conversations
  • Making decisions
  • Strategies for key moments (before/after embryo transfer, two-week wait, important decisions)
  • Motivation and commitment to treatment
  • Improving your health for fertility (nutrition, physical activity, environment, habits)
  • Setting up goals, action plans, following up and accountability

 

 

At Reproclinic we are aware most people underestimate the emotional distress that may be caused by infertility, so whatever stage you’re in, make sure you are prepared. “From my professional experience, coping with the emotional rollercoaster of an infertility journey is one of the most difficult and at the same time most important aspects to address before, during and after the treatment. Patients who have emotional support have a better experience and it is an essential part in our holistic fertility treatment approach”, says Dr Arqué, Medical Director at Reproclinic.

In our commitment to support our patients, everyone has access to a Free Fertility Coaching consultation with our awarded Nurse Consultant and NLP Coach Andreia Trigo. It’s never too late to start your fertility support plan, why not start today? Book your appointment here.
