    Invisible Loss: What is Fertility Counseling?

    “It's an amorphous loss that other people can't see and they can't touch and they can't identify with. It's a prospective grief versus a retrospective grief because we're grieving over the hopes and wishes and dreams for the future…. so it becomes so much harder to grieve.”
