Dealing with fertility issues can be tough. We want to support you in all possible ways. We offer many individual and group solutions that can help overcome fertility obstacles, provide relief from emotional stress, and support and guide you on making the best decisions for treatment.
The Center’s highly trained psychologist, Kim Crone, PhD, helps our patients cope with the stresses of infertility and better deal with emotional, ethical and legal issues through education as well as mind-body cognitive-behavioral counseling. Her services are available at the Center by appointment. Call 844-467-3483. More information on these services is available here.
Virtual Support Groups
Given the Covid-19 pandemic, we have been unable to hold our in-person RESOLVE of New England peer support groups. Instead, we are pleased to offer free, Center for Advanced Reproductive Services [the Center] sponsored virtual groups via Zoom Meeting. These will continue July through September.
What is a Peer Support Group?
Our peer support groups–open to women and men, individuals and couples–provide an opportunity for open discussion where you can come together and meet others who are facing similar challenges in a relaxed and confidential setting. Discussion at our general infertility groups may include talking about current treatment, dealing with friends and family, and coping strategies. Whether you’re newly diagnosed or have been in the trenches for years, attendees from all stages of the infertility journey will be warmly welcomed.
The Center’s virtual groups will be managed and facilitated by Ami Chokshi, Certified Health coach. Ami is an experienced live group facilitator having facilitated the RESOLVE of New England live peer support group at the Center for many years. She is also a former fertility patient.
The Center is committed to providing in-person and/or peer support and is proud to have been hosting RESOLVE and RESOLVE of New England peer support groups for nearly 30 years.
Pre-registration is required. Kindly register at least 12 hours in advance of the group to ensure that your registration is received.
