IVF Fertility is a very emotional experience. The ART treatments and its outcomes can be highly distressing for the couple as well as the family. To make this journey smooth, Jindal IVF and Sant Memorial Nursing Home offers psychological counselling for all such patients and their families. Our counselors have a Ph.D degree in Clinical/Counselling Psychology. They recognize various emotions and psycho-social problems faced by such couples and try to resolve them using various psychotherapies. We offer two broad categories of counselling – IVF and non IVF.

IVF patient Counselling:

I. Pre-IVF or Supportive Counselling

  • Prepare for fertility treatments, and explore the options and implications when making decisions about starting, changing or stopping treatments,
