Fall is in full bloom, literally. We hope you’re taking some time to enjoy all that this season has to offer: apple picking, the changing colors of the leaves, pumpkin spice everything, and cozy sweaters. While you take time to breathe in the crisp, fall air, we also hope you’re taking a breath to realign your focus on your family building dreams. This month, and every month, the RMA of Connecticut team has one goal: to help you achieve the family you desire. We understand pursing fertility treatment can be a stressful and tiresome process, (it can also feel exciting- knowing that each procedure is bringing you closer to your baby!) and we are here to help keep your focus on that goal, regardless of what stage you’re in. Join us all month long for tips on how you can keep a laser focus on your fertility path - without ever veering off course.

*Beyond the Blood Draw - Wednesday, October 17th at 12pm

*Beyond the First Attempt - Wednesday, October 24th at 7pm
It’s no secret that pursuing fertility treatment can feel very daunting, especially when it’s your very first attempt. Everything’s brand new and you’re unsure of what to expect. It’s hard to avoid having a million thoughts/questions/concerns racing through your mind. Balancing an open mind and optimism of success with the realistic understanding that there may not be a positive pregnancy test is challenging. You may even end up wondering, “Will it ever work?” Because you are not alone in these feelings, RMA of Connecticut invites you to join Dr. Joshua Hurwitz, Reproductive Endocrinologist, and Chelsea Merwin, Patient Navigator, for a Facebook Live discussion that dives into the best ways to continue past the first attempt, if necessary, and keep going until you get the positive result we all hope for!
