The last month has felt like a very long year, hasn't it? Our lives have been altered dramatically. Infertility is a journey on its own and to have a pandemic dumped on top of it all is devastating and overwhelming. Each person responds differently to situations and we hope that the emotional and social support services listed below are helpful for you in managing the repercussions of COVID-19.

 

Emotional / Mental Health

  • Our in-house psychologist, Dr. Kristen Chambliss, is offering CORM patients a complimentary 15-min session. You can contact her at 281-324-0503. Dr. Chambliss is a licensed psychologist who specializes in helping individuals who are experiencing infertility.
  • We are hosting live group coping sessions with Dr. Chambliss on our Instagram Live (@InfertilityTexas) at 7pm Central every Friday in April.

Social Connections

Staying connected to others is important to your mental health, especially now that we are physically distant. There are many ways to get in touch with loved ones, including FaceTime, Facebook Messenger, Google Hangouts, and Zoom. You can also watch Netflix movies simultaneously with a group by using Netflix Party. When having conversations with others, share your feelings about the pandemic, but also be sure to talk about other topics so that your daily life doesn't constantly revolve around COVID-19.

It's also worth reiterating that CORM is hosting a series of live group sessions with our in-house psychologist every Friday at 7pm in April on our Instagram Live (@InfertilityTexas). You can ask questions during the session, or beforehand by sending a private message or an e-mail to info@infertilitytexas.com.
