Trying to Have a Baby, What Support Do You Want?

- Peer support groups
- Massage therapy
- Educational classes or workshops
- Online support groups

Fertility Support Programs - What Could Make the Journey More Bearable?
Why am I asking? Because we are planning fertility support programs and thinking hard and dreaming big. For you. So doesn’t it make sense to ask you what you want? What you would consider healthy and helpful and what you will try, even if it’s new to you?
We want to create new programs and possibilities for those of us who need help creating our families. We especially want to create programs that are affordable, are given on days and times that are appropriate for your work schedule, and that appeal to all of your being.
Should we, could we, be pampering you in some ways? Have a day of beauty? Facials? A potluck dinner? A game night? (Anyone up for Apples to Apples? I defy any of you to stay sad with that one and it’s a great way to get to know one another.)
As I sit here, wracking my brain to figure out what you want, I realized it was time to ask.
So I’m asking.
What do you want? What do you need? What would make you feel special? Delighted. Pampered. Peaceful.
My email is secure and created just for you. Your name and email address will appear absolutely NOWHERE.
So tell me, please.
What would you like for yourself? (Aside from the baby thing which we are already working on.)

I look forward to hearing from you.
