Feelings of shame, isolation and guilt are often experienced by couples who are struggling with infertility. It is important for us as a community and a society as a whole to raise awareness and challenge the stigma associated with infertility because our friends and family members are hurting.
Going through IVF can be an emotional rollercoaster. Choosing to keep your treatment private, often means that you cannot gain support from your usual networks. For those who are more open, family and friends may struggle to know how to talk about infertility or how best to support you along the way.
The Fertility journey can be emotionally exhausting and challenging, putting a strain on a couples relationship. Seeing a psychologist while considering or undergoing treatment can be a helpful way to work through anxiety, grief, grief, worry and other emotions that may be experienced as a result of fertility issues, specifically in the event that treatment may fail.
“Infertility and its treatment can be emotionally difficult, isolating, and financially challenging. AJFN offers women and men a warm and supportive environment that is culturally sensitive, as well as financial assistance, if required. I have enjoyed my association with the organisation for many years, and will continue to do so”.
“Infertility is a very trying journey – physically, financially and emotionally. AJFN plays an important role in the community to help lighten the burden for those needing financial or emotional support. There can be no greater mitzvah than helping to create new life. I have been privileged to work with the AJFN for many years and through Shterny’s compassion, vision and dedication, the organisation has gone from strength to strength”.
“AJFN is a wonderful organisation that supports women and men in their difficult and stressful times. It is confronting and distressing to receive a diagnosis of infertility and then also be faced with the enormous expense of fertility treatment. AJFN provides understanding caring and financial assistance”.
