Fertility Journey Support
The journey to become a parent is not always easy. 'Infertile' and 'barren' are the hopeless and soul-crushing terms that the general public use to describe the journey with fertility struggles. This is why I prefer to re-frame what's happening as a 'fertility journey' because it is just that--a journey--and it encompasses more than just the person with the uterus.
Many of us, including me, have found this journey to be a painful, frustrating, anxious, and desperate process. As someone who understands all the fertility lingo (HSG, BFP, DPO, oh my!) and the mix of emotions when you see baby announcements on Facebook, I am here to offer you hope and solace in the form of counseling and resources.
Counseling & Ritual
Fertility Journey Support through individuals and couples counseling: This journey can be isolating both for individuals and couples. Having another layer of support via counseling helps to ease anxiety and promote hope. Fee: $125/hr individual; $150/hr couples. Bearing in mind the costs of fertility treatment, these prices are negotiable depending on circumstances.
Fertility Journey Support through ritual: As human beings, it is important to mark time and events in a sacred way that contributes to healing and wholeness. If you have been feeling like you need to do something to mark your pregnancy losses or any part of your journey, I can assist you.
How this works: We will meet for 90 min-2 hours so I can listen to your story and outline your needs. Then, I will design a ritual that you can use to help you through your journey. Fee:$200
