Even in the most loving relationships, unhealthy patterns of behavior may emerge during infertility. One or both partners are often depressed, and they can move in a downward spiral toward isolation and despair.
Couples say they feel socially isolated and the pressure to conceive inevitably affects the partnership. One partner can blame the other, sex becomes mechanical and communication can break down.
Despite these difficult circumstances, there are concrete things that can be done to help relationships flourish. In this webinar, Beth Jaeger-Skigen will assist you gently some advice and guidance to regain intimacy during infertility.

I have developed a two-part 30 minute support session to address the despair that often accompanies the struggle to fulfill one’s most natural biological desire – having a child.
This webinar will take you on a practical journey through exploring loss and hope to help you navigate how to relate to yourself, friends, family and co-workers during this challenging and delicate time. I address the grief, isolation, despair, lows and highs that infertility often brings.
This two-part lecture provides you some tools to assist with regeneration of positive feelings and hope.
