Struggling to conceive may take its toll in a number of ways – emotionally, mentally, and financially. To help patients on their fertility journey Bourn Hall offers free counselling and a patient support group.
Bourn Hall offers counselling to patients before, during and after treatment and this can involve anything from being concerned about starting treatment, to secondary infertility, or the need to make a decision about stopping treatment, or using donated sperm or eggs.
The service is open to anyone as a confidential space where patients can share their thoughts and feelings – whether they would like to attend individually or as a couple.
Three types of counselling are offered: implications counselling, support counselling and therapeutic counselling. There is also a fertility support group for those who want to speak to others also going through IVF.
