“The emotions around trying to conceive can be more challenging than the treatments for infertility.”
Dreams of having a family and holding your baby for the first time are taking longer than expected.
Once acknowledged that conceiving is taking much longer than anticipated, seeking medical exploration tends to follow. The investigations can be invasive and expensive evoking feelings of anxiety at the loss of hope in conceiving. Miscarriages are a tremendous loss and can affect the hopes of not only conceiving but also being able to contain and carry a baby to term. The job of having a baby begins to take over thoughts and emotions often causing undue stress on a relationship.
