Holidays can be stressful, even in the best of circumstances. Expectations are at a peak. Pressure comes, both from the outside and within, to break out of the normal routine – to celebrate, and to enjoy! But for the person experiencing infertility, holidays can be the most difficult time of the year.
You certainly can’t make the pain of infertility disappear miraculously. But by planning in advance and acknowledging that the holidays may be uncomfortable; you can prepare yourself and improve your chances of having a pleasant holiday season.
Our friends at Resolve, the National Infertility Association, have created an in depth resource for couples undergoing infertility treatment during the holidays. Click here for tips and fact sheets to help get you through the holidays.
Happy Holidays from your friends at Genesis Fertility & Reproductive Medicine.
