Free Webinars and Support Groups for coping with COVID-19


If you find yourself feeling anxious, fearful, and out of control, this is an entirely normal response to a highly unusual crisis. It’s common to play out worst case scenarios in our mind related to your future health and fertilityWith treatment cycle cancelations/postponements and the reminders to practice "social distancing” you may feel there’s widespread uncertainty about the future which can create heightened sensations of fear and panic. The lack of control that comes with periods of instability can lead to feelings of anxiety and despair. The antidote is to create a toolkit of coping strategies to help you get centered and stabilize in these times of uncertainty.
