Organizer

IAC Center

Many of our clients seek counseling and psycho-education to help them cope with the emotional, social and practical issues related to their infertility treatment, failed infertility treatment cycle, miscarriage or pregnancy loss. Others come to us to discuss family alternatives including additional infertility treatments, donor options, adoption, surrogacy or the child-free family. Wherever you are in your process, we’ll help you consider the short-term, long-term, emotional and relationship factors associated with each choice.
