We find that one of the most important things to include in your family building plan, outside of fertility treatments, is peer support. It probably isn’t the first thing on your mind when realizing that you need some assistance getting pregnant but studies have shown that when you incorporate a group or peer support offering to your journey to fertility it actually lowers your stress level and can increase your chances of conceiving. Stress can affect the part of your brain (the hypothalamus) that regulates your hormones. The hypothalamus is the gland in the brain that controls the hormones required to release your eggs. This gland also regulates your partner’s testosterone levels.
We offer virtual support opportunities every month to accomodate our travelling clients that may live outside of NY State and to offer supplemental support in-between our support groups that you may have already attended at our Syracuse, Albany or Rochester Fertility Centers.
