Queensland Family and Fertility Support

Narelle Dickinson, Clinical and Health Psychologist

Know someone going through fertility treatment but don’t know how to help?

hugVARTA is a wonderful resource for families undertaking fertility treatment (including donor and surrogacy).  One of the great things they do is generate a whole load of really helpful information booklets and online information sources about everything fertility related.  Their website include information for families and friends of people going through fertility treatment – it might really help you if you just “aren’t sure what to say”.  Check out the website here https://www.varta.org.au/information-support/assisted-reproductive-treatment-art/how-family-and-friends-can-help

”I think often people, when they have a loved one going through IVF, want to fix it and often they do care. But the person who’s experiencing infertility can sometimes feel as if that person doesn’t care because those responses don’t quite hit the mark… but I think what I wanted was for people just to listen and not judge and not offer solutions… just to listen.” Anne
