Why You Need to Find Support Before, During and After Embryo Adoption

The importance of finding and connecting with a support network during your embryo adoption journey can’t be overstated. This is an exciting, scary, miraculous thing you’ll be going through, and having a support network of people who can relate to the bevy of emotions you are experiencing is invaluable. Connecting with a strong support network will:

  • Help you find answers to questions. Whether you have a question about your fertility cycle, want to know more about the embryo transfer, or just need opinions on sleep schedules, a support network of people who have been through an embryo adoption themselves can be a great resource for that information.
  • Give you a place to vent. Sure, embryo adoption is an exciting event, and you’re ecstatic about the prospect of becoming pregnant with your adopted baby. That doesn’t mean there won’t be some negative emotions involved, too. A support network can help you deal with those emotions, understand they are normal, and move past them.
  • Celebrate victories with you. Often couples going through embryo adoption find that while their friends and family are excited for them, they can’t relate to their embryo adoption journey. They don’t understand the excitement of a successful thawing process or going through a successful transfer like fellow embryo adopters will. A support network will understand how much these small victories mean to you. 

Whether you connect with people in person, over the phone, or through the internet, finding the right support network of people will make your embryo adoption experience even more special.
