Pregnancy Loss is overwhelming and intimate. Share the life and loss of your baby through the story of your pregnancy and loss. *Seperate Miscarriage & Still Birth Groups
6-Week program with a weekly focus to prepare for Family Holidays and anticipate special days throughout the next year. Registration opens once a year during the Month of October.
For some, creating a family comes easily. For others, it is accompanied with countless appointments with a variety of professionals who all have a similar goal - help you create a family.
Creating a family begins with hopes and dreams that can quickly shatter when a pregnancy is lost or you are given information of an underlying health issue that is interfering with your fertility. Or you sit in the abyss of Unknown Infertility and begin to question or blame yourself.
Chartreuse Center was created for you. Your experience is unique to you, just as mine was for me. Few counseling professionals specialize in fertility concerns, infertility, and grief. Chartreuse Center offers valuable service through attentiveness to your personal situation. You have our promise to companion you to growth and empowerment.
7weeks of daily practice of integrating Positive Psychology to transform your senses to recognize, savor and incorporate positivity strategies into everyday life.
This program is created from what Chartreuse Center Clients (and I wanted too) when first exploring challenges with conceiving. You have a trusted referral for a Reproductive Endocrinologist... Gift yourself Embrace YOU! Infertility touches more than the body... it impacts our love relationships, our self esteem & trusting our bodies, our emotions are influenced by treatment medications & outcomes, and our coping strategies are stretched... even difficult to find ways to have comfort in our lives. You deserve to know more and improve your coping with your fertility journey.
Registration is Open
