While most people come to Anova because they are looking for top-quality fertility care, it takes more than expert medical advice to support a person undergoing fertility treatments.We believe that patients who are able to approach care with a healthy mind and body are most likely to manage the twists and turns of their fertility journey.Furthermore, we recognize the role other integrated wellness providers may play in achieving that holistic health. This is why we work closely with multiple care providers.
The toll that fertility care takes on a person and a couple can be significant. We encourage everyone in our patient community to build a strong and varied support network. While relying on close friends and family can be valuable, there are more options to consider as well, such as:
We have two channels available to our patients free of charge:
Many of our patients tell us that working directly with a fertility counsellor has helped them navigate their fertility journey. To see a list of our partnering counsellors, please visit our resources page.
Led by a mother who underwent fertility treatment to become a solo parent, the Thinkers & Tryers group meets monthly. There is a $5 fee to participate.
Many programs and apps are available that promote self-guided reflection and coping strategies for the fertility community. Consider trying FertiCalm, an app that’s been a much appreciated resource for our patients, and even for members of our healthcare team.
This national organization helps Canadians reach their reproductive health goals by promoting equal access to fertility treatments and by providing support, awareness, information and education.
At Anova, we work closely with a range of integrated wellness providers, and support patients in including holistic care methods in their care plan. Those methods include:
Every fertility journey is unique, and our role is to inform, support and guide every aspiring parent toward what we believe to be the best clinical recommendations. We believe that the better you understand the science and technology that is being recommended, the more confident you will feel every step of the way.
We send every patient video modules throughout their journey to help explain the different tests, procedures and medications we’ve recommended for them.
After completing our online education modules, the patient will be ready for individual teaching with a member of their Anova nursing team.
There are legal considerations to be aware of when undergoing fertility care. Knowing in advance how to handle topics such as legal parentage is important, especially with third party reproduction.
