Valentine’s Day is a time to celebrate love and connection with our partners. For couples struggling with fertility, it can also be a time of added stress and anticipation. Taking a moment to look back on the reasons that brought you together as a couple can be a powerful way to remind yourself of the love and support you share, and to refocus on the present moment.
Focus on the present moment: Instead of dwelling on the stress and disappointment of fertility struggles, try to focus on the present moment and the love that you and your partner share. Make plans to do something fun together, whether it’s a date night out or a cosy night in.
Show appreciation: Take the time to tell your partner how much they mean to you and how much you appreciate their support during this difficult time. A heartfelt note, a thoughtful gift, or a special date can all be ways to show how much you care.
Support each other: Fertility struggles can be emotionally taxing, and it’s important to support each other through the ups and downs. Consider starting a couples therapy or couples acupuncture session, where you can work together to alleviate stress and support each other’s emotional well-being.
Try Something New: Valentine’s day is a good time to try something new together, it could be a new hobby, a new restaurant or even trying a new form of treatment like acupuncture or herbal medicine. This can be a chance to bond and create new memories together while taking control of your fertility journey.
Remember, it’s important to be kind and compassionate to yourself and your partner as you navigate through fertility struggles. It’s also important to keep in mind that you’re not alone in this journey, many couples struggling to conceive, face fertility issues, and there are many ways to get support.
