Making Babies; Detour Ahead
Here’s what's included:
The modules involve the following:
Week 1: The Mind Game
High levels of anxiety and depression are all too commonly experienced during fertility treatment. “Just relax”, they say! But for the majority it becomes a battlefield of the mind. Keeping a good attitude, remaining positive and hopeful is a tough ask. This session will discuss the power of your thought life, with education around CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy) and a simple four-step sequence to challenge your daily thinking.
Week 2: Heart Ache
When you are struggling to conceive, there is a lot to grieve. You grieve your ovaries, your partner’s sperm, the entire process; all of the tests, the diagnoses, the waiting. Things most never need to think about. This module is designed to bring understanding to grief and loss as a process with a heavy focus on taking care of ALL of you, from the inside out.
Week 3: Dear Body
So your body is no longer your own. It belongs to the IVF drugs, nurses, embryologist, specialist and most likely a slave to the your favourite new app in the shape of a CALENDAR! Let's not mention the side effects of hormone induced headaches, “can't do your zip up” weight gain “potential” mood swings…and you are not even pregnant yet! This week we talk all things health and wellbeing from a “physical” perspective with tips on how to best support your beautiful body to rise to the occasion.
Week 4: Relationship Roadmap
IVF often imposes significant stress on a relationship. It is very important that couples undergoing IVF be made aware of this fact and encouraged to not lose sight of the other aspects of their relationship. This fourth and final module will outline the key areas of your relationship that are most likely to be impacted by the experience of IVF.
Plus a bonus section on how Dr Gary Chapman’s “The Five Love Languages” can bullet proof your relationship along the way!
