Coping with Grief: Denial & Anger

Dr. Chamoun has been helping families achieve their dreams of successful pregnancy for years. But treatment for infertility is always an emotional journey, and at Viera Fertility Center we want you to understand that you’re not walking through infertility alone. At the end of the journey you could have the beautiful baby you’ve hoped for, and we’re here to help you with the process of grieving until we achieve that outcome.

The common five stages of grieving are likely noticeable during your journey to fertility as you grieve the loss of an easily-achieved pregnancy or the loss of miscarriage. Denial and anger are two of the stages you and your partner can expect to experience. Sometimes, couples diagnosed with infertility go through a denial stage. After a loss, a person might say they aren’t upset or that “everything’s fine.”

Anger is another stage in the grief that accompanies the journey toward fertility. There doesn’t seem to be a reason why some people conceive so easily and others don’t. You may feel angry toward friends who are pregnant or women with babies they didn’t plan. You can expect, at times, to experience anger with your partner, your doctor, and other medical professionals as you move toward fertility.

At Viera Fertility Center, we know that denial and anger are part of the process of grieving as you work toward the family of your dreams. If you’re experiencing denial, it may be time to admit you need help achieving pregnancy. We know that infertility is unfair, and we want to help you achieve the family of your dreams. Don’t suffer with grief alone. Call your Melbourne fertility clinic today!
