'Coping with infertility' course
Wanting a baby and not being able to have a baby can be an emotionally painful experience, often causing considerable stress. This course will help you to gain new perspectives and learn new ways to approach the challenge of infertility. You will be introduced to a range of therapeutic techniques which can help you manage the stress and emotional pain of infertility.
At each session you will hear from someone who has gone through the infertility journey and has reached “the other side” - whether through finally having a child or through coming to terms with childlessness and finding another way to make life meaningful. The course will take place in a supportive group environment in which there will be opportunities to discuss relevant issues and learn from each other.
Who is this course for?
This course is open to women, men and couples who are at any stage of the infertility journey and are seeking support and strategies for coping with the emotional impact of struggling to conceive.
What will the course involve?
The course will run for six Monday evening sessions from 6.30pm until 8.30pm, beginning on Monday 28th January 2019. Each session will contain three elements – group discussion of a relevant topic, a chance to learn and experience therapeutic techniques, and the opportunity to hear from someone who has been through the infertility journey and made it to “the other side”.
