As an infertility therapist, there are two things I frequently hear from my clients. First, I hear that couples walking through the season of infertility are unaware of all of the services that Nashville businesses “have” to support their fertility. Second, I hear that they feel alone, that their friends are getting pregnant and they just wish they knew other people in the trenches of this season with them.
After speaking at a local support group where the room lamented about both of these two concerns, I thought, “I HAVE to do something about this.” In brainstorming sessions about how to meet these needs, The Fertility Gathering was birthed.
My hope for The Fertility Gathering is three fold:
- First, I hope that couples walk out having connected with another couple on the same journey.
- Second, I hope that couples have found local businesses that can support them on their journey to pregnancy.
- Last, I want to showcase local businesses that provide emotional, physical and psychological support for those needing assistance with their fertility.
If you are just starting your trying-to-conceive journey, have several failed IVF treatments, or anywhere in between, this event has something for you.
I truly hope that you will join us! I hope that you will find the community and support that you need to continue this journey!
I can’t wait to meet you!
