Staying positive improves your health and wellbeing, and can help your chances of a successful pregnancy. Some stress in life is normal and usually unavoidable. How you deal with stress is the important factor for staying emotionally healthy.
Your emotional and mental health is important whether you’re just starting your pregnancy journey, or you’ve been trying for a while.
Remember you’re not alone. Trying to have a baby or having fertility treatment can be challenging, and it can add another layer of stress to your busy life.
How counselling helps
Our team of counsellors, (psychologists), are ready to help before, during or after treatment. They’re on hand to talk about coping strategies, dealing with disappointment and grief, and how to deal with family and friends.
You don’t need to wait until you’re in a crisis or desperate for help. Reaching out for counselling is part of preventing issues affecting your emotional health. It’ll help you prepare for any tough situations ahead.
Contact your Monash IVF clinic for an appointment. If you need urgent help from a counsellor, please let the receptionist know.
