This Thursday, Lisa is hosting our Interactive Fertility Support Webinar and she focusing on the emotional challenges of secondary infertility. Secondary infertility is defined as the inability to become pregnant or to carry a full-term pregnancy after having had one or more children without challenges before.
Many parents feel guilty for wanting another child so badly, especially if they already have more than one child. This guilt is entirely misplaced. You can absolutely love your existing child/children, but still yearn for more – it doesn’t have to be one or the other.
Unfortunately, couples with secondary infertility tend to receive less support from friends and family than couples who were never able to conceive. This happens because couples who already have one or more children do not have a visible loss to explain their grief, whereas couples who have no children are visibly lacking the family they wish for.
Because of this common disparity, many couples often need help from professionals and/or support groups when coping with secondary infertility. We at CNY Fertility know how difficult it is to deal with what could have been and what actually is, which is why we encourage you to seek support throughout your struggles. You are welcome at our support offerings, including our Circle of Hope Support Group sessions found on our CNY Fertility and CNY Healing Arts calendars.
