Top Fertility Expert to Talk About Secondary Infertility-Free CT Event-Followed By Fertile Yoga
Secondary Infertility Talk and Fertile Yoga Class
Dr. Williams will be talking about the difficulties of secondary infertility this Wednesday.
If you have not experienced primary infertility (had no problem conceiving the first time), secondary infertility can come as quite a shock.
It can lead to men and women taking a much longer time to seek treatment than is recommended. After all, you got pregnant the first time, right?
Come hear what Dr. Williams has to say about how long to wait to seek treatment and what you can do when you are trying on your own. This is a free event.
And just for an extra, I will teach a Fertile Yoga class.
That makes my day ~ Lisa Rosenthal
RMACT Fertility Practice Participates in “Modern Moms” Speaker Series
Dr. Shaun Williams Will Share Insights about Secondary Infertility, Followed by
Fertile Yoga with Lisa Rosenthal
NORWALK, CT (October 16, 2013) – On October 23 at 12 p.m. at Intensity Fitness Club in Norwalk, Dr. Shaun Williams, a Board Certified reproductive endocrinologist with Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut (RMACT), will speak at “Modern Moms,” a series with local experts. Dr. Williams will talk about secondary infertility and answer questions from attendees. Following this, Lisa Rosenthal, RYT-200, will lead an abbreviated Fertile Yoga class, where attendees can learn gentle poses that encourage mind-body connection.
“Secondary infertility accounts for nearly 30 percent of all infertility cases, yet many people don’t realize that it is common to struggle to get pregnant even if there were no complications with previous pregnancies,” says Dr. Williams, who sees patients primarily at RMACT’s new location in Trumbull, CT. “Our hope is that women will walk out understanding that they are not alone and that there are specialists who can help.”
Secondary infertility is defined as the inability to become pregnant, or to carry a pregnancy to term, following the birth of one or more biological children. Anyone over 35 years old who has been trying to get pregnant for more than six months should see a fertility specialist; for women under 35 years old, this timeframe is one year, according to Resolve, the National Infertility Association.
RMACT, which is the largest fertility practice in Fairfield County, believes in treating the whole patient. As part of this approach, RMACT has its own Integrated Fertility and Wellness Program, which includes Fertile Yoga, acupuncture, nutrition counseling, support groups and therapy sessions. RMACT offers free Fertile Yoga classes to patients and the general public as a way for fertility patients to reconnect with their bodies and improve their overall mental and physical health. Anyone interested in attending a class led by Rosenthal can go to RMACT’s website for dates, times and locations: http://www.rmact.com/events
“Modern Moms” is organized by Macaroni Kids, a website and e-newsletter listing kid-friendly events and reviews, and Sterling Care, a premier home health and home staff organization based in Greenwich which provides nurses to nannies. Their “Modern Moms” Meet-Up group brings together local community experts and moms to stimulate and educate modern parents as well as afford them a time to mingle with each other and meet the experts.
