The decision about having a baby: The role of the partner

Physical and mental energy during infertility treatment

Balancing and seeking alternative paths during infertility treatment. 

The question of what to do next after several unsuccessful attempts is understandably stressful. Here are some considerations that can help:

Supporting the partner during fertility treatment  

The question of how to navigate this emotional and goal-oriented chaos as a partner is important. Here are some considerations:  

It is important to support your partner during infertility treatment and recognise that this can also be challenging for you as a partner. Be patient, empathetic and open to making decisions together, and use professional support when needed to facilitate dialogue.
