Couples and individuals go through medical and physical challenges trying to conceive a child. They are forced to make some of the most difficult life choices. Infertility support and counseling can assist in these trying times. When the most private parts of the couple’s life becomes scheduled and business like, the couple can experience a real sense of loss. Relying on the medical community to create their family can cause feelings of helplessness.
