Coping with Infertility Grief

Coping with the Grief of Infertility

Coping with the Grief of InfertilityOne of the reasons that the pain of infertility is so hard to deal with is that it is often unrecognized by our society. Therapists and scholars have a name for this type of grief: disenfranchised grief or ambiguous grief.

The lack of recognition for the losses of infertility makes it easy to feel that you aren’t entitled to mourn. However, mourning is crucial to healing. It is hard to grieve a dream, and harder still when others don’t even see that there is a loss.

You do not have to cope with the pain and grief of infertility alone. Many people have been helped by counselors, but it is especially helpful if the therapist is trained in the realities of infertility.
