Fertility care can be a complicated discipline. Couples that come to me for treatment aren’t just experiencing a physical issue. Having children is an integral part of who we are. Experiencing difficulty conceiving on your own can be devastating. In order to completely care for a patient, it is important to address their physical, emotional, and mental needs.
Whole Body Approach
At New Hope Fertility Center, we have a “whole body” approach to fertility care. To put it simply, we focus on treating all aspects of fertility at the same time. This begins with the diagnostic process. One of the most common questions couples ask is “why”. “Why am I not able to get pregnant on my own?” and “Why me?” are an everyday occurrence.
To answer these questions, the first step is to understand the nature of the issue. This begins with testing for both partners. Women undergo tests to evaluate hormone levels as well as to evaluate how their reproductive system is operating. Men must provide a semen sample for analysis. Once tests are complete, the fertility care team can detail the issues that are causing the delay in getting pregnant and provide a personalized plan to address the issues.
Throughout this process, each client is treated as if they were our only patient, with a constant focus on their overall wellbeing.
The emotional aspect of fertility care is just as important as physical care and explaining the treatment process. Individuals with fertility issues are under the same pressure and stress as individuals who are undergoing cancer treatment. However, this is often not understood in society. Additionally, people with an infertility diagnosis often feel alone and that they’re unable to talk about their situations.
New Hope provides a number of methods of addressing emotional issues:
