Infertility can be a challenging and emotionally draining experience for many couples. It’s important to recognize that secondary infertility is a real issue that can affect anyone, regardless of their previous fertility success. This National Infertility Awareness Week, we want to encourage you to #FindYourVoice and seek out resources to help you navigate the family-building process.

One such resource is Mindy Berkson, founder of Lotus Blossom Consulting. Mindy has over 17 years of experience in the infertility industry and has helped countless couples achieve their dream of becoming parents. Her own personal experience with secondary infertility has given her a unique perspective and understanding of the physical, financial, and emotional stressors that can accompany the family-building process.

“My goal is to thoroughly comprehend my clients’ needs, enabling me to successfully address the financial, physical, and emotional stressors that often accompany the family-building process. Providing uncompromising guidance and support, which surpasses their expectations, is truly rewarding.”   —Mindy Berkson

Have an Open Mind

Mindy’s first lesson for those dealing with infertility is to have an open mind. While it’s important to grieve the loss of the original family-building plan, it’s also important to stay open to the possibilities that science and technology can provide. The pathway to parenthood may look different than originally planned, but it can still be achievable with the right resources and guidance.

Build a Solid Foundation for Infertility Treatment

Her second lesson is to build a solid foundation for infertility treatment. This includes becoming your own best advocate and seeking out the help of an infertility consultant to maximize your chances of success. It also means doing your insurance homework and identifying the best possible resources for donors or surrogates if needed. Making informed decisions involves educating yourself about your diagnosis and the available treatment options for your condition.

Remain Hopeful

Mindy’s third lesson is to remain hopeful. Infertility affects everyone differently, and it’s important to find what works best for you. This may involve seeking out a support group, individual counseling, or simply being honest and open with your partner. It’s crucial to be patient and kind to yourself and to remember that stress will not positively affect the outcome. Staying optimistic while preparing for your baby will help you stay focused on what’s most important.

Dealing with infertility can be a difficult and overwhelming experience, but there are resources available to help. It’s important to remember that you are not alone and that it’s okay to seek out help and support. Mindy Berkson and Lotus Blossom Consulting are just one of the many resources available to help you navigate the family-building process. This National Infertility Awareness Week, we encourage you to #FindYourVoice and take the first step toward achieving your dream of becoming a parent.
