Plainview, NY (PRWEB) September 12, 2011
East Coast Fertility has launched Long Island’s first mind-body infertility support group for men. “Infertility strikes men and women equally,” says David Kreiner, M.D., Founder and Medical Director of East Coast Fertility. “And regardless of who has the diagnosis, both partners can benefit from emotional support.”
The East Coast Fertility “Just for Guys” Mind-Body Support group meets two Tuesdays a month. Led by Bina Benisch, M.S., R.N., the group allows men to share their thoughts and feelings about infertility and their experiences. Benisch has been a psychotherapist for over 20 years, specializes in infertility, and received her training at the Benson-Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicine at Harvard Medical School.
“At East Coast Fertility, we believe it is important to support our patients emotionally as well as physically,” Benisch says. “In sharing how infertility affects them, their relationships, and each man’s deepest sense of self, these men receive support and gain insight. They also support each other during what can be an isolating and difficult time. Men often feel uncertain about the ‘right’ way to support their partners, and don’t realize how they themselves are affected.”
