IVF treatment can be challenging emotionally, and sometimes places strains on our relationships.
Talking with a counsellor doesn’t mean you aren’t coping – it’s simply an important tool that can help you through this time of your life. It’s helpful to have someone really listen to you without giving ‘advice’, and be able to talk to someone you can be completely honest with.
