Tips for family and friends

Infertility is a topic that knocks on the doors of many homes and whose waves affect not only couples but also their environment. At Ingenes we understand this delicate matter and know that the love and support of family and friends can make all the difference.

The role of loved ones in infertility

When a loved one faces infertility, it's natural to want to help. But often, good intentions do not translate into the right words or the right actions. To truly be a support network, it is vital to understand and respect the couple's journey.

Tips to support an infertile couple

  1. Learn to listen. Before offering solutions, listen. Every couple has their story, and what they need more than anything is to be heard.
  2. Avoid trite comments. Phrases like "Relax and it will happen" or "Maybe it's for a reason" are usually not helpful and can hurt.
  3. Respect their privacy. If they want to share details about treatments or progress, they will. Don't push.
  4. Support their decisions. Every step in the infertility journey comes with difficult decisions. Be their advocate, not a critic.
  5. Offer practical help. Whether cooking, helping with chores, or just being there, small gestures matter.
  6. Include them in family events, but understand if they decide not to attend.

Understanding is the key

Infertility is not an easy path to navigate, but with the right support, couples can find strength in the darkest times. At Ingenes, we believe in providing that support, not only through treatments but also by offering guidance and understanding.
