It's more than a convenient coincidence that the Domar Center for Mind/Body Health is located within Boston IVF's Waltham clinic. Research and experience show that individuals and couples who experience infertility commonly experience sadness, anxiety, irritability, loneliness, stress, and frustration in response to their situation. It’s important to know that these emotions, though painful, are natural and normal, and you don't have to work through them alone.
Counseling is an integral part of fertility treatment, and our services are designed specifically to help you through the difficult times. Each Domar Center psychologist holds the highest level of licensure in Massachusetts, has 20+ years of experience in treating the emotional aspects of infertility, and intimately understands what you are going through.
Our counseling services are tailored to help remedy the uncertainty you may face when addressing your fertility options, to help get your life back on track, to stop living in ’28 day cycles’, and to help you feel in control of your life once again.
WHEN TO SEE A FERTILITY COUNSELOR
A fertility counselor can help individuals and couples:
- who need help coping with the stress of fertility treatments and the uncertainty of outcome
- who have experienced one or more unsuccessful cycles and need to vent and receive advice from a professional who understands
- who have experienced miscarriage
- whose infertility challenges are causing distress and disruption in their lives
- who are having difficulty dealing with infertility for any reason, at any time
UNSUCCESSFUL CYCLE PROGRAM
As an important part of our mission to support you every step of the way, our psychologists offer free thirty-minute consultations to all Boston IVF patients after any failed treatment cycle. The maximum wait time for a new patient to be seen by a psychologist is one week.
During this free visit, you may begin to process your distress over the cycle outcome, as well as learn coping mechanisms and strategies which will empower you to continue toward your goal of becoming a parent.
