Chronic feelings of yearning, emptiness, and lost hope and dreams accompany the psychological loss and trauma associated with infertility and miscarriage. Women suffer an assault to their body integrity (their body has betrayed them), and feel isolated from the fertile world around them. Both with infertility and with every miscarriage, women mourn the loss of what would beā€¦the child that could be. It is so important to be able to mourn and grieve in order to remain in the world and cope with the choices we have. Therapy is a vehicle that empowers women to work through this most difficult process. Additionally, couples therapy during this most difficult time helps the couple to support each other in a deep, emotional way that engenders true healing and the shoring up of the marital bond.
