Providing Integrative Stress Management Tools is a big way we like to support the fertility community. As whole body wellness practitioners and pharmacists, we recognize that integrative health looks at the emotional, physical, and mental states in a collaborative way. This Couples Communication Guide is meant to help support you as a unit and provide tools to enhance your relationship during fertility treatment.

Let’s look at Whole Body Wellness and break it down into three simple states…

– The emotional state which is how we are feeling about the situation. In this case, fertility treatment. Is it impacting all areas of your life, including your relationship? Are you feeling a wide range of powerful emotions?

– The physical state which is how our body is handling it, the side effects, the demands of the schedule. Do you feel fatigued or are you energized and going about your daily routine? Do you get head or body aches? Are you staying hydrated?

– The mental state which is looking at the ultimate family-building goal and how we are handling day-to-day life. If it’s overwhelming and you’re feeling dull or numb or feeling sharp and on top of your responsibilities.

One of the key factors to getting out from under stress and feeling lighter is relying on a support network of people. As a couple, your partner should be your go-to person. Have trust in each other as you step forward.
