Supporting Services

Astra fertility knows that everyone’s fertility experience is unique. Our staff is dedicated to providing the most advanced reproductive technology and holistic patient centered care.

We don’t just treat your fertility issues; we support your whole person. That means helping you manage the stress of fertility treatment, as well as providing information on a fertile lifestyle and alternative therapies like acupuncture that can optimize your chance of getting pregnant and having a healthy baby.

Psychological Counseling And Emotional Support

Quest and required journey to achieve your goal can be long and frustrating. You will experience different, and at times, conflicting emotions that you would not have predicted that you would experience. You and your partner will be tested. Stress related to your treatment can affect your work, your relationships with your family and friends, and not to mention, with your own partner. Understanding these potential hurdles in advance will prepare you to deal with them better and to minimize their impact on your life. The road to fertility is not easy, but the reward is there.

It is true that some may not be able to have a child without resorting to adoption, surrogacy or gamete donation. However, some couples will be satisfied knowing that they have done the best they could and did not spare any effort in their journey to becoming parents.

Appropriate ongoing counseling with our medical and nursing staff, in addition to specialized counseling sessions with certified counselors will help make your journey easier.

Nutritional Counselling

Fertility function is one of many functions that the human body is equipped to perform naturally. Improving various bodily functions is no different than improving fertility function. This is achievable through improving nutrition, correcting dietary deficiencies, maintaining a healthy body weight, improving your sleeping pattern, and exercise. It is also important to cut down on exposures to environmental toxins, alcohol, tobacco, marijuana, and other illicit drugs.

Nutritional counseling can be arranged with an Astra affiliated nutritionist or others of your choice within the community.

Genetic Counselling

Some cases of infertility and recurrent pregnancy loss are related to some genetic errors of the male or the female. Proper screening for these problems, followed by proper counselling and exploration of suitable treatment options are essential in managing the couples involved. Genetic tests are performed on male and female blood, sperm, eggs and embryos. Tests are also done on fetal tissue in cases of recurrent pregnancy loss.

Proper counselling is mandatory when genetic anomalies exist or there is a strong family history. We also collaborate with institutions locally and in the US.

Legal Services

Legal Services are usually required when patients use donors (legal binding contract between patient and donor). If you are unsure of which legal services to use or do not have any readily accessible, then please contact the IVF nurse for a list of previously used firms.
