Calling in the professionals

If all else fails, or you feel that talking to an expert in the field of the psychological and social consequences of infertility would be beneficial, your best bet may be to see an infertility counsellor or psychologist.

Counselling services are an integral part of all Australian IVF clinics and couples are encouraged to use these services whenever they need to — before, during or after infertility treatment. Counsellors provide useful information, individual or couple support, relationship counselling and generally help you to stay sane during the course of infertility. I talk more about the role of counsellors in IVF in Chapter 4.

If you're not yet part of an infertility clinic, you may not be able to access clinic counselling services. But you can still contact your local clinic and ask for the name of an independent psychologist or counsellor with an interest in infertility issues.
