Coping mechanisms for dealing with the stress of infertility will be the topic of our next infertility support group.
Heads up for our next Acadiana Infertility Support Group on May 2, 2107. Guest speaker Stacy Williams, MSW, LCSW, will address the issues of stress facing those going through infertility. Ms. Williams will lead a discussion on ways you can cope with the emotional, financial and physical stresses that a diagnosis of infertility can bring.
The Acadiana Infertility Support Group is for those in the Lafayette area who are experiencing infertility. We understand that infertility can bring on a variety of physical, emotional, financial, and spiritual challenges. We offer support, information, sharing of resources, and tools for coping — all to help empower you on your fertility journey.
Meetings take place in a safe and confidential atmosphere where information and support is shared with others who are also going through infertility. The Acadiana Infertility Support Group is open to everyone (you do not need to be a patient of Fertility Answers). Our group begins at 6:30pm in the reception area of Fertility Answers, 206 E. Farrel Road, Lafayette, LA 70508.
