Infertility causes a lot of emotional trauma to the couple. This is even truer in an orthodox social setup like India. The couple may feel taunted by peers, relatives and friends about their inability to have children. There is a lot of social stigma attached to infertility.
To overcome this, the couple may need some form of counseling – to understand what the reasons are, to know what options are available and which option is best for them. Sometimes the couple may need psychiatric support if the emotional trauma is too intense and deep. They may also need support to understand the financial impact of the treatment programs.
Counseling becomes an even more critical aspect when a particular infertility treatment plan has not given a positive result. Couples may feel dejected and depressed. They may not be ready to face the failure and may take it personally. During such times, a psychiatrist or a trained counselor can work with the couple, help them overcome the setback and motivate them to continue with the next step of treatment.
GarbhaGudi makes sure that the couples get the required emotional support and counseling help with the help of its team of trained counselors. Many a times, senior doctors, embryologists and other members of the team will assist in the counseling sessions since they already have a trust-based relationship with the couple. GarbhaGudi also employs alternate therapies to help couple in their journey – including yoga, pranayama, music therapy, Reiki etc.
Pre Natal and Post Natal Counseling, Yoga and Exercises
Couples sometimes need help with their dietary condition, exercises, food intake, posture etc. This can be before conception or after conception. Along with the counseling sessions explained earlier, couples can also benefit from the counselor’s knowledge of yoga, pranayama, breathing exercises, focused exercises, music therapy, aroma therapy etc.
Foetal Reduction for IVF patients
In certain couples, if the embryo transfer was done with more than 2 embryos (say 3), all of them have been successful. In such cases, one or more embryos may have to be terminated to ensure successful and healthy pregnancy. It is also possible that in some cases, if the clinician feels that one or more embryos have to ber terminated due to clinical reasons, GarbhaGudi will take care of foetal reduction.
This is done in a very professional manner, with the help of an expert laparoscopic surgeon. Please talk to us for more details.
Disclaimer – GarbhaGudi does NOT support or undertake termination of pregnancies if there is no clinical reason.
Basic Gynec and Obstetric Consultations and Support
Post conception, our fertility experts will handle the pregnancy for a period of 12 to 14 weeks. This is considered to be the high risk period. During this time, regular scans, medications, injections will be prescribed by our experts. Subsequent to the “high-risk” period, the patient may be handed over to a gynecologist who practices close to the patient’s residence. GarbhaGudi has tie-ups with many gynecologists and maternity hospitals. We can recommend you to a capable and reliable gynecologist close to where you stay.
Please note that GarbhaGudi does not handle maternity services. We handle pregnancies of our patients only for 12 to 14 weeks after conception.
