Many people who are dealing with fertility challenges and/ or pregnancy loss can feel a wide range of complex emotions including anxiety, grief, guilt, failure & loss of control.
They are also constantly exposed to reminders of their condition through questions from family members, interactions with pregnant people or ongoing medical treatment.
There are proven benefits for programs that support understanding & normalize these difficult emotions associated with disruptions to the reproductive story.
Explore how mindfulness can support you in living life more fully & cultivate deeper awareness, presence, openness & connection in your life through this online program following the famous Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) curriculum. The instructor, Stephanie Curran, creates a safe, supportive, nurturing online space where you can learn how to build resilience while connecting & sharing with other people going through an experience like yours.
This program is for those who are struggling with primary infertility (trying to conceive your first child).
We welcome new or long-time practitioners, single people or couples, as well as all genders & gender expressions.
