Step 4. Make a plan for self-care during fertility treatment
A key message from Mille Duzenius is to live a meaningful life – both during fertility treatment and when you reach the other side. Whether it be a life with or without children.
“I recommend that you make a plan for how you want to spend your time during this waiting period. What is meaningful to you? Remember to look after yourself,” says Mille Duzenius.
And should you be one of those for whom the dream of having children never comes true, there will probably always be a void inside of you. The point is not that we should get over the grief. Because we can never get rid of it. But we can come to terms with it and in time find the acceptance to move on in life – without children – but with love as well as purpose.
The most important thing is to come to terms with your grief. And not carry the burden alone.
