New Text-Based Platform Is Helping Connect Those Facing Fertility Struggles With Free Fertility Coaching

 

 

The journey to becoming a parent can be exciting and overwhelming. But, for couples who may have difficulty getting pregnant, their journey can be especially challenging on many levels.

 

 

1 in 8 couples have trouble getting or staying pregnant[1] and research has shown that some women dealing with infertility report experiencing depression and anxiety levels similar to those with cancer or heart disease[2].

 

Given the very real psychological impact fertility challenges may pose, it is critical that aspiring parents have access to credible information and emotional support to help them throughout their path to parenthood.

 

To meet this need and complement the support provided by healthcare providers and loved ones, a new text-based platform is now available called Fertility Outreach. This platform connects aspiring parents with customized information and guidance from a real, live fertility coach.

 

 

Fertility Outreach is an expansion of Fertility Out Loud, a platform and social community, provided by Ferring Pharmaceuticals in partnership with Robyn, which aims to provide those struggling with fertility challenges with the resources they need to speak up, navigate access to care and seek help from the right health care provider sooner. This information and real patient stories can be found on the website, Instagram, Facebook and YouTube channel.

 

Connie Stark, Fertility Outreach Coach and April Christina, patient advocate joined me to share more about their personal experiences from the perspective of a coach and an aspiring parent and how this new text-based platform may offer help to those struggling on their journey to parenthood.

 

*The-text based platform provides free fertility coaching; data and message rates may apply. Visit Outreach.FertilityOutloud.com to learn more.
