Having a baby to love and cherish is the ultimate dream for many people. While natural conception and pregnancy are often taken for granted, being faced with the prospect that this may not be the case is startling.
It’s heart-breaking and soul destroying when our long held dreams seem more and more uncertain and we face repeated disappointment. We may wonder what we’re doing wrong or feel like we are being punished for some unknown misdemeanour. Conditions such as polycystic ovary syndrome, endometriosis and history of miscarriage can create additional worry and upset.
Life has enough stresses and strains already but there is additional anxiety around trying to get pregnant. With such a roller coaster of emotions and tension our bodies struggle to maintain the right conditions for fertility. Taking care of our health and wellbeing is vital in such times. There are lots of supports to choose from and with some guidance you can create and manage your own wellbeing plan.
