When we envision having a child, we never imagine having to turn to a fertility specialist. This is an emotionally painful journey, whether we’re talking about stimulation, egg donation, or, in more extreme cases, surrogacy. Any of these paths requires a process of grieving, along with family support and emotional comfort above all else.
When we talk about grieving, we are referring to the loss of fertility, having to let go of the conventional model (the idea of conceiving without any medical intervention).
Today, medical science can help counter these difficulties. Firstly, we need to start with the desire to have a child and then embark on a path that brings us closer to fulfilling this dream. This journey requires optimism, confidence, and, above all, an effort to keep anxiety from sabotaging us.
We understand that it’s not easy, but it’s worth trying. That’s why, as an interdisciplinary team at Gestanza, we recognize that therapeutic support plays a crucial role in the success of the treatment.
