“There are ways for patients to make their journeys more manageable. Although finding ways to thrive while struggling with infertility is not always easy, there are tools that can help make the journey feel lighter," says Rosenthal.
Norwalk, CT (PRWEB) November 03, 2016
On Saturday, November 5 from 3:40 p.m. – 5 p.m., Patient Advocate Lisa Rosenthal of Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut (RMACT) will participate in RESOLVE New England’s 23rd Annual Conference in Marlborough, MA. The Conference, which is the largest consumer infertility conference in the country, is an opportunity for anyone interested in their reproductive health and family building options to learn more about their fertility and current treatment options.
Rosenthal, who is editor-in-chief at RMACT and writes the fertility practice’s renowned blog Path To Fertility, will lead a seminar that explores surviving versus thriving as an infertility patient. She will identify practical tools, services and ideas to counter the negative, yet common emotions that often accompany infertility. Rosenthal’s presentation will include an opportunity for attendees to ask questions and have a discussion about how to bring positive energy into their experiences.
“We know, from reliable research, that infertility often causes stress, isolation, anxiety and grief,” says Rosenthal, who also co-leads peer support groups called Ladies Night In throughout Fairfield County, CT. “There are ways for patients to make their journeys more manageable. Although finding ways to thrive while struggling with infertility is not always easy, there are tools that can help make the journey feel lighter.”
Rosenthal’s perspective comes from her own fertility journey, as well as years as a volunteer for RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association and as a patient advocate and one of the founders of the American Fertility Association, now called Path2Parenthood. For the past nine years, Lisa has continued to give infertility patients a voice through her work at RMACT, including writing a daily blog (PathToFertility.com), editing Gay Parents To Be and Single Moms To Be blogs, leading peer support groups, teaching Fertile Yoga classes and advocating on Capital Hill for fertility insurance coverage.
