counselling

Counselling is available for all patients at Reproductive Medicine Wagga. Some treatment cycles have elements of compulsory counselling.

 

The process of undergoing fertility treatment can be challenging and stressful. Counselling is available at all stages of the treatment process: before, during and after a treatment cycle. It can be helpful to address issues around decision making, following a diagnosis, deciding whether to pursue treatment, dealing with disappointment and grief and learning strategies for coping.

 

Counselling is provided by a qualified member of the Australian Association of Social Workers. Our counsellor is a member of both Australian and New Zealand Infertility Counsellors Association (ANZICA) and the Fertility Society of Australia (FSA).

 

Counselling costs are included in some treatment programs. You can find out any costs involved by speaking with a coordinator. Access to the counsellor is through referral by your doctor, coordinator or self referral.
