London Workshop March 2011

Healing–A Workshop for anyone facing fertility losses

This workshop is for anyone who has experienced infertility, failed fertility treatment, miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, premature menopause, secondary infertility, stillbirth, neonatal death, sperm problems or unwanted childlessness–whatever the cause, including lack of a partner.
Many people find the workshop is an important turning point.

Financial issues should never be the factor preventing anyone from taking part.

Women, men and couples are welcome. Partners are particularly encouraged to attend.

All sexual orientations welcome.

Men who find the courage to attend report great satisfaction from having done so.
(It is not unusual for male partners to be reluctant!)
Usually there are several women attending alone.

The outcome of this workshop varies, but most participants find it moves them forward.

  • Most do some necessary grieving and finish by feeling lighter & calmer.
  • Most gain valuable insight & have a change of perspective, especially after hearing others speak; most participants have more clarity about what to do next.
  • Important links are often forged that lead to ongoing supportive relationships of depth & value. Isolation is broken. This is cited as one of the most significant positive outcomes.
  • Occasionally groups decide to do further work together.
  • Those who attend with partners report a much improved sense of rapport and connection with the partner.

The longer term benefits take various forms:

  • Sometimes people come to terms with childlessness and decide to stop further treatment;
  • Sometimes individuals & couples decide to undertake treatment, but in a new spirit;
  • Sometimes the door opens to adoption, when it had seemed closed.

Some ‘ways in’ include: visualisation, art/drawing, movement, meditation and plain old sharing!
No previous experience is expected.

If you were terrible at art, it doesn’t matter!
Great care is taken to create a safe, compassionate and healing atmosphere.
