Webinar: Still Trying - Coping With The Challenges Of Trying To Become A Mum

This webinar took place on Monday 27 March, 12-12.45pm

Sometimes motherhood doesn’t happen for us in the way we had dreamt. With up to 15% of couples struggling to conceive within their first year of trying, and one in five pregnancies ending in miscarriage, it’s not surprising that this can take a huge toll on your physical and mental health.

Many women experience significant feelings of guilt, shame, anxiety, and depression as they face negative pregnancy tests, miscarriages, or disappointing fertility appointments.

This FREE webinar explores how to manage your psychological wellbeing as you are faced with the physical and mental challenges of receiving fertility treatment, coping with miscarriages, and struggling to conceive, in addition to the added strain of talking with family, friends, employers, etc who don't understand your difficulties or are putting pressure on you to become pregnant.
