Mother’s Day can be hard when you’re struggling to conceive. Find the infertility support you need
When you want nothing more than to conceive, seeing months of negative pregnancy tests is heartbreaking. You may also feel alone, especially during holidays like Mother’s Day. However, you don’t have to face infertility on your own. Erika Munch MD and her team can help you conceive and bring home a baby. You can also find plenty of people to provide infertility support on your family-building journey.
What types of infertility support are available?
There are plenty of sources of support if you’re struggling to conceive. You can start by reading books, visiting websites like RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association and reaching out to loved ones. If you need more support, you can attend support groups. You can find these groups both online and locally if you’d like to attend in person.
If you find that more personalized and professional support would be helpful, our San Antonio infertility doctor can recommend a therapist who specializes in this area. Therapists can provide individual and couples counseling to help you discuss your thoughts and feelings. They can also help you work on developing coping mechanisms and finding solutions.
How do I know if I need infertility support?
Facing infertility is emotional and stressful, so just about anyone going through it can benefit from seeking support. Our San Antonio infertility doctor recommends counseling if you feel depressed, anxious, distracted or stuck on your journey. Working with a counselor or attending a support group can also help if you’re facing other issues.
