What is reproductive health psychology?
This specialty requires a keen understanding of the medical and emotional aspects of pregnancy loss, infertility and maternal mental health. These challenges often bring an intense range of emotions which, over time, stretch you beyond your coping strategies. The reproductive health psychologist provides anticipatory guidance, and helps you manage and understand your experience.
