Help people help themselves
There are plenty of experts in the medical field, but the psychosocial aspects of involuntary childlessness have been neglected. Fertility Care Institute provides support in this area before, during and after fertility treatment. Because how do you deal with this difficult and challenging time in your life, where it can often feel like you are losing control? And what is the best way to take care of yourself?
“We would like to help people help themselves. It's very different from person to person how challenging it is for them. Some get pregnant on the first try – others wait for 12-13 years. Some have to give up on the dream entirely, and that can cause a tremendous and complex sense of grief,” says Mille Duzenius,
“Being infertile can be just as stressful as being diagnosed with cancer. It can result in a stress reaction, and it can feel like a concrete loss. People grieve and feel helpless.”
