Couples Therapy Sessions

This video shows a window into 3 couples therapy sessions for a couple dealing with infertility. Fertility-focused therapist Beth Jaeger-Skigen and FertilityIQ co-founders Deborah & Jake role play 3 common scenarios that couples deal with as they navigate fertility challenges.

This video will give you a sense for how therapy can be incredibly helpful in terms of helping a couple to better understand each other and be supportive during difficult times.

These sessions cover several dynamics and emotions, including disagreements like going home for the holidays, going to triggering social events, spouses avoiding each other, resentment, grief, sadness, male factor infertility, differences in how much members of a couple want to discuss fertility, and more.
