Have you been trying to conceive, but struggling with infertility? If you are the 1 in 6 Canadians who struggle with infertility, you're certainly not alone.
Secondary infertility also exists and is defined as the inability to become pregnant, or to carry a pregnancy to term, following the birth of one or more biological children.
If you live in Ottawa/Gatineau and are having trouble with your fertility, did you know that there are resources out there to support you? Some of those support resources have events coming up in the next few days...
This Saturday May 28th is the monthly peer-led Infertility Support Group. Here's some more information about the group:
Little Lotus Yoga is also offering another 4-week series of Fertility Yoga beginning on June 1st!
There is also an online support group that you can request to join on Facebook, the Infertility Support for Ottawa and the Valley.
I can speak from personal experience, that Dr. Patricia Gervaize, a psychologist at OFC, is an amazing source of support for couples or individuals needing help when dealing with infertility and/or miscarriage.
Fertility Matters Canada is also an excellent source of information and support!
What other resources do you utilize in our community, or online, to support you in your fertility journey?
