Thank you for taking the time to learn about Atlanta Fertility Support Alliance and the services we offer to support patients and their loved ones. Below, please find a description of our consultation and counseling services. If you are interested in learning more, please be in touch! We would be happy to talk with you about your needs and how we can help.
PRE- IUI OR IVF CONSULTATION
The decision to move forward with infertility treatment can be a very difficult one. While Intra-Uterine Insemination (IUI) and In-Virtro Fertilization (IVF) can be options that give patients hope for a long wished-for baby, they are also medical interventions that can induce a great deal of stress and fear. Let us help you prepare for this next step. In a consultation session, we can help you explore the physical, psychological, and social dimensions of assisted reproduction and help prepare you for what to expect as individuals and as a couple. Consultations are typically provided in one 1-hour session, though additional sessions can be added, if desired.

THIRD-PARTY DONOR CONSULTATION
If you are planning on building your family with the use of donor sperm, eggs, or embryos, we can help you plan for the exciting, yet complex, road ahead. While your Reproductive Endocrinology clinic may require consultation with a therapist before taking this step, we see this consultation as an opportunity for couples to catch their breath and explore all of the thoughts and feelings this decision may bring with it. In a safe and caring environment, we will offer education and guidance as you consider how to move into parenting with intention and meaning. Third-party donor consultations are typically provided in one 1-hour session, as is the requirement from most infertility clinics. However, additional sessions can be added, if desired or deemed necessary to cover essential themes.
INDIVIDUAL & COUPLES COUNSELING
Managing the "roller coaster" of infertility - the cycle of hope and despair - can be exhausting, preoccupying, and alienating. Many struggling with infertility soon find that they are consumed by grieving invisible losses. If you are finding yourself unable to enjoy the people and things you used to, isolating from friends and family, or experiencing hopelessness or unrelenting grief, we can help. And, if these experiences are impacting your relationship with your partner, let us support you in navigating your path as a couple - with connection and meaning. With counseling offices in East Cobb and the Midtown/Lenox area, help isn't far from where you are.
