We're proud to introduce our Ingenes Emotional Health Unit (EHU). At Ingenes, we understand the emotional journey that comes with fertility treatments. That's why we created the SEI, where our dedicated team of psychotherapy experts is here to walk beside you, helping you understand and manage your emotions, so you can be more open and receptive to the treatment.
Research from the American Fertility Society highlights the importance of this emotional journey: 64% of patients with emotional guidance during Assisted Reproduction techniques have a higher success rate, in contrast to the 36% who start their treatment without this crucial support.
That's why, in tandem with our Assisted Reproduction Solutions, our EHU unit is here to offer a safe haven—a place where you can express yourself, be heard, and have your feelings validated. With us, it's not just about the treatment; it's about ensuring your journey is a memorable and supported one.
Why is EHU so vital?
At Ingenes, our promise is to help bring your dream to life with as little stress as possible. That's why, within EHU, it's essential for us to get to know you better and understand how you feel. We're committed to providing the support you need, helping you recognize and transform your emotions throughout your journey.
By fostering positive shifts in your physical, mental, and emotional states, we aim to achieve a holistic balance. This balance is crucial in making you more receptive to the treatment and ultimately realizing your greatest dream: bringing your baby home.
