The emotional rollercoaster we go through while trying to conceive can be overwhelming. The hope and excitement we feel at the beginning can give way to frustration and fear with one negative result after another. Holding it together in front of friends and work colleagues can seem impossible at times and fluctuating hormones can compound the situation.
I spent time on Tuesday with my lovely friend and colleague Emily and we hosted a live Facebook question-and-answer session on emotional management for fertility.
Emily shared her own fertility story with us back in October last year you can read it here. She supports people facing challenges through unique webinars, coaching and resilience workshops. She specialises in working with those who have or have had cancer. Check out her fantastic Facebook page here.
