Why counselling helps when you’re trying to conceive
For such cases, there are counsellors who have special training in dealing with the psychological and emotional implications of the treatment process. They want to help you to understand the entire process and cope with the challenges that come with it.
Not being able to give birth to a child places uncertainty in your mind and you need to feel secure and understood in your journey toward chances and acceptance.
It is important for you to understand what you are about to do and how to understand and cope with the effects and implications of the treatment. You must accept that the treatment does not work all the time. There is no guarantee for this. This is why counselling is important so that they are prepared for any outcome or failed attempts.
Such failures may result in feelings such as frustration, hurt, disappointment, hopelessness and depression among couples. Counselling can help with this and make you decide whether you want to try again.
Counselling usually offers an option of trying again a few months later after a failed attempt. It takes time to recover from stress. This time can give you open discussions about why you failed so that you can improve your chances of success the next time.
If the treatment is successful, this counselling helps you understand the role of parents and cope with new challenges. Sometimes it also ends in a pregnancy loss or miscarriage. This is also something you should be prepared for and counselling helps with this.
