Infertility Coaching with Heather Huhman

Valerie and Heather discuss removing the fears and tension from your relationship with your partner:

INTRODUCTION

  • I’d like to start by hearing a little bit about you. Tell us about your academic background and training.
  • Why did you choose a career in helping couples with their relationships?
  • Take us through your career.

RELATIONSHIPS

  • How do I get rid of this fear that my partner will no longer love me or he/she will leave me since “all of this is my fault”?
  • How do I talk to my partner about this fear?
  • How do I let go of this self-blame, guilt, and shame so it’s not affecting my relationship and my wellness?
  • What do I do when my partner is blaming himself/herself?
  • How can I help take the pain away from my partner?
  • My partner doesn’t have to go through all of the pain, procedures, and appointments that I do, and I find myself getting really resentful about this. How can I let go?
  • The disconnection between my partner and I keeps getting bigger and bigger. What can I do about this?
  • How do I get my partner to care more? He/she barely reacts after disappointing news or exciting news.
  • My partner tells me I’m overreacting. How can I get him/her to support me more and not make me feel bad about my emotions?
  • How can we cope together?
  • What are some healing ceremonies we can do after a loss or celebration ceremonies after a win?
  • Is there anything else you’d like to add?

WRAPPING UP

  • What words of hope would you offer to couples who are struggling to maintain their relationship during their infertility journey?
