INFERTILITY SUPPORT GROUP FOR WOMEN AND MEN: With each pregnancy test, you may
feel grief, frustration, and hopelessness. By learning stress management
skills, by practicing self-care, and feeling the support of others in your
situation, you can start to feel in control. With my own infertility issues, I
facilitate a six-week support group for women and men. Infertility affects all
phases of your life and work. This support group will help you feel more in
control of the emotional ups and downs of the challenge of infertility. Fees
are based on a sliding scale.
