Ep.  53 | Aftermath of Infertility (PTSD)


Episode Summary 

In this episode of Fertility Café, Eloise focuses on infertility, pregnancy loss, and mental health issues like PTSD, anxiety, and postpartum depression. If you feel that any of these topics would contribute to negative feelings or upset, go ahead and skip this one. I know it’s a heavy topic right around the holidays, but I also feel strongly that through education and open discussion about these difficult topics, we can help provide comfort and support to those who need it.


In this episode, Eloise talks about: 

  • The phenomenon of “decision fatigue” and how it applies to the fertility journey
  • How educating ourselves can help improve empathy towards others
  • Why grieving is so common throughout a fertility journey
  • The importance of destigmatizing being able to ask for help when you need it
