IF Infertility is Getting in the Way of the Holidays – Here's a Cure
This is the time of the year for joy! And good cheer! And togetherness!
Ok, I’m not going to bah humbug, (although I have in the past), I promise.
I will just say that IF you are not feeling those things and IF you are feeling guilty that you are not feeling those things and IF there are people in your life encouraging you to participate when you would really rather not and IF this is the year you would rather change up some of your holiday plans and IF staying home and cuddling with your honey sounds appealing and IF buying online rather than braving the crowds and all the baby and kid stuff would be heaven sent and IF receiving holiday cards with babies on them breaks your heart and IF hearing one more “I’m pregnant” announcement will send you over the edge and IF you just cannot stand one more question about your own family building plans, THEN, you have come to the right place.
Because we are busy right up until the New Year here at Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut (RMACT) with infertility support events and more that are designed just for YOU during this holiday season.
Infertility Support During the Holidays
We have two Ladies Night’s In left before we hit 2016. One tonight in Trumbull, right after Fertile Yoga, from 6:30-8:00.
Next Thursday, December 17, in Norwalk from 6:30-8:00. Also after Fertile Yoga.
We have a group on Single Women Pursuing Parenthood in Danbury on December 10, (that’s tomorrow night!), from 6:00-7:30.
Fertile Yoga Trumbull, class will meet on December 9, 16. No class on December 23 or 30. Norwalk classes will meet December 10, 17. No class on 24 or 31. Bethel classes will meet on December 11, 18. There will be no class in Bethel on December 25 or January 1.
IF you are not feeling the holidays, give yourself a break. Infertility doesn’t tend to make too many of us jolly. Interestingly enough, if you come join us at Ladies Night In, you are assured to have a good laugh!
Maybe this is the season that you try something new. If none of these in-person events appeal to you and you are an RMACT patient, contact us and we will invite you to the secret, hidden Facebook page devoted to you. There are lots of friendly, interesting, helpful and funny women who get what you’re going through.
Because they’re going through it too.
Don’t brave the holiday season alone.
We’re here to help.
