Infertility Counseling in Greensboro, NC Work with Jena to Become an Infertility Warrior!
Infertility is a medical condition that touches all aspects of your life. It may affect your relationships with others, your perspective on life, and how you feel about yourself. How you deal with these feelings will depend on your personality and life experiences. Most people can benefit from the support of family, friends, medical caregivers, and mental health professionals. When considering infertility treatment options such as sperm, egg, or embryo donations, it may be especially helpful to gain the assistance of a fertility counselor. Talking with an infertility counselor is especially important when considering third-party reproduction. Your therapist at Little Seed Counseling, Jena Plummer, can help because she has made those decisions herself.
Jena is an Allied Mental Health Provider for the American Society for Reproductive Medicine and an infertility warrior!
