What are the concerns after discovering one’s infertility? How can couples prepare for the ART (Assisted Reproductive Technology) process? If this process may seem clear and fairly easy from a medical perspective, it is certainly much more complex for the couple to deal with from an emotional point of view: from the discovery of infertility to the decision to turn to a specialised medical centre to begin the treatment process.
How to prepare for ART is the topic that will be discussed on 8 June during the first of two Facebook live broadcasts organised by IBSA as part of the BabyHeART project in collaboration with the SIFES (Italian Fertility and Sterility Society) Reproductive Psychology Group.
During the event, Dr Federica Faustini and Dr Marina Forte, psychotherapists specialised in cognitive-behavioural therapy, will address all ART matters by analysing the emotional implications experienced by the couple facing a ART process: they will provide the tools to be used in case of difficulties in order to reduce the anxieties and stress of the treatment and improve personal and couple well-being.
On 15 June, heterologous fertilisation will be discussed.
