Do you feel
- your body has betrayed you

Your life CAN improve with help and support.
There IS hope for you.
You are NOT alone.
Counseling can help.
When you discovered that you were dealing with the challenge of infertility, it likely changed your life. After the shock and disbelief, you began to ask yourself: Should I try to be hopeful and move forward with treatements? If so, for how long and for how much? Should we turn toward alternative family building measures? Why is it so easy for others?
It is so difficult to live through the pain, confusion and heartbeak of infertility. These reactions are very normal. Counseling can help you sort through and deal with these difficult feelings.
