“A stressful event or experience is defined as one in which the person appraises the event or experience as challenging or exceeding one’s abilities, or endangers one’s well-being.”
(Susan C. Klock, Fertility Counseling, pg. 36).


Facing infertility and/or fertility treatments is often experienced as a stressful event in the lives of both women and men. Some of stresses may include:

• Extensive time, energy and money;
• Distress and grief from failed cycles and losses that may occur along the way;
• Dealing with family and friends who don’t understand;
• Feelings of loneliness and isolation;
• Feelings of depression, anxiety, diminished sense of self-worth and self-esteem, self-image
and body-image struggles, grief and loss, and even shame;
• Other demands and stresses occurring in our daily lives.

Chronic, ongoing stress can ultimately impact how a person’s mind, emotions, body and spirit function — or not. Often individuals and couples find that these stresses are beyond their tolerance level, and the research shows that stress and distress is a top reason that fertility patients decide to stop treatment.

There are effective and evidence-based approaches to combating fertility stress. Mind-body techniques can be used to address:
• Ways in which emotional, mental, social, spiritual, experiential, and behavioral factors can
directly affect health.
• These techniques are simple, easy, and cost-effective and can support you in our fertility
journey and provide you with solid grounding to cope with other stress in your life.

This live, virtual 8-session group will offer you a safe place to explore a variety of different methods to nourish and replenish depleted reserves. Led by an expert in mind-body skills training, Carol will guide you in a combination of powerful and effective research-based techniques including:

• Breathing exercises,
• Meditation
• Movement
• Guided imagery
• Autogenic training
• Biofeedback and more

The group will offer you a place to learn new coping and stress-management skills as well as a time to share experiences and resources. No prior experience, skill or talent is needed.
