Hi! My name is Lisa Stack and I’m the CNY Fertility Support Coordinator. In addition to my Words of Support and Encouragement article this week, I wanted to upload a quick video talking about not only Father’s Day but the summer holidays as well. We often focus on the female clients and the moms saying that they have a challenging time battling through this infertility, and really pushing forward; especially seeing other pregnant moms out there and pregnant women, and children. The dads have a challenge, too. It’s just as hard on you as it is on your wife, often. So, we want to make sure that you know that you are supported. We were thinking about you this weekend and this summer. We want to make sure that you know that there are all sorts of support opportunities there for you. The support groups are great. You’re also welcome to attend our webinars and some of our other workshops which are fantastic for giving you support. As you’re heading into these holidays, I just want to make sure that you have a plan. You know that you can use your exit strategy at any time, and just to take it all in stride. Check in with your emotions, check in with how you’re feeling and what’s going on. Always stay in constant communication with yourself and your partner will help make you sail through these challenges much easier. Just know that we’re always thinking about you and we’re always here to support you.
Lisa Stack, Support Coordinator
