This is clear representation of some needs that may arise from the discussion of fertility. I really enjoyed how she explored their thoughts and feelings and how she went on to explore options and resources. I work in a very small rural community and our resources are very limited. The closest specialist on fertility may be 2-3-hour drive. Locally there isn’t any resources. If there was a patient similar to the case study our organization would receive the referral. This is the reason as to why I wanted to learn and have more knowledge so that as an organization we would be able to provide some information and then do the necessary referrals.
I also appreciate that the Social Worker allowed the couple to discuss their feelings about infertility and their mixed emotions about fertility options. Our center similarly has limited resources for fertility counseling. I like the idea of trying to find other local survivors/couples to help families explore options and gain support.
