We know that stress takes a toll on a woman's ability to persevere through fertility treatments. Research shows that stress is the number one reason insured fertility patients drop out of treatment.
Time, money, unsuccessful cycles, envy at friends' pregnancies, the holidays, questions from family about your fertility status, and so many more. The list of triggers for stress during infertility treatment can feel endless. Coping with that stress often feels isolating and lonely. But loneliness is just a feeling. Your experience is natural and shared by many during infertility treatment. It's important to know you are not alone.
Dr. Alice Domar and her team of psychologists deeply understand the very real and natural emotions that accompany infertility, and with this understanding they established the Mind/Body Program for Fertility.
The goal of this program is to help you get your life back, to become the person you were before you started trying to become pregnant, and to feel healthy and whole even as you continue to pursue your dream of parenthood.
The Mind/Body Program for Fertility is a ten-week group program for women with infertility that is led by a Domar Center psychologist, who is an expert in the emotional aspects and challenges of infertility.
Our program, which is held at Boston IVF's Waltham Center, offers support for women at any stage of infertility treatment, including those who are currently cycling, taking a break, or have exhausted what their physicians can offer.
In most groups, about half the participants are either beginning or in the midst of IVF treatment. The program enables you to take back control of your life, cope with your infertility in a positive way, and learn about lifestyle habits that can enhance your fertility and contribute to your happiness and good health for the rest of your life.
Our groups provide this support through:
We look forward to speaking with you, and will be in touch as soon as possible!
