Infertility, ART and Third Party Reproduction Assistance

Starting a family can be an exhilarating time for many, yet for some it can be a devastating and disappointing ordeal. Coupled with infertility treatment and/or other family building considerations, the whole experience can be an emotional roller-coaster. Many live through this in isolation. Despite its private and silent nature, infertility can stir up a host of other emotional responses, such as shock, anger, grief, depression, guilt, and despair. However, you do not have to endure this alone.
