New Year is traditionally the time when we pause, look over our shoulder at what we have achieved over the past 12 months and begin to plan for the future. So, as we enter another year what could be more exciting than a resolution to build your family. Unfortunately, as we know this can be challenging and some of us may require additional support. This is where Tambre can help; we have been assisting individuals and couples realise their resolutions for over 45 years.
If you have to accept that assisted reproductive treatment is necessary for you to realise your dreams there are a number of things that you could do to prepare before you begin. Ensuring your physical and emotional health are at optimum levels is a good start and maintaining this throughout your treatment will not only improve your general health but will also make your treatment less stressful.
This article considers the ways in which you can make your family building resolution an achievable goal for the New Year.
Its all in the preparation
The decision to start assisted reproductive treatment is a major one. You will need to prepare for a journey that might not always be smooth, it might take time, money and a lot of emotional resources to get where you want to be. Like most things in life however, the better prepared you are at the start of any journey, the more comfortable the ride will be.
So how do you prepare for your fertility journey? Well, it is a combination of ensuring you and your partner (if you have one) are emotionally and physically ready for the journey and you have identified the most appropriate treatment provider that suits your needs. Remember if there are two of you at the start of the journey it is important that you are both on the same page!
Healthy body, healthy mind
There are a number of things you can do to make you sure your physical health is as good as it can be when you are planning to begin your treatment. It is a good idea to consider,
- Taking a good quality supplement for your fertility that will support your general health
- If you smoke, quit, if you can’t, reduce your intake
- If you drink, reduce your intake or stop
- Maintain a healthy diet and weight
- Balance exercise and rest
It is important to ensure that your emotional health is as good as it can be to help you on your journey to parenthood. This can be helped by
- Support bubble: it is good to talk, if you can, share your feelings with friends and family
- Good levels of exercise and rest can benefit your emotional health and reduce stress levels
- Seek professional help from fertility counsellors and coaches if required to supplement your medical treatment
The right treatment provider
In order to achieve your dream of having a baby the choice of treatment provider is vital. We recognise the emotional and practical considerations you would have invested in prior to contacting us. This is why the Tambre team spend time to consider every aspect of your general and fertility health. Only then, can we suggest a treatment plan which is wholly designed around your specific needs.
The guiding principle behind everything we do at Tambre is that all our patients are unique and deserve to be treated so. We will not suggest a treatment plan unless it can be medically and scientifically justified, and all our patients are fully involved in this process throughout the time they spend with us. We believe that an informed patient is a confident patient; and this is why we spend time discussing your specific requirements and creating a transparent, tailor made treatment plan.
Whatever treatment you ultimately require will be available at Tambre. We are mindful that time is important to our patients and that is why the window between our initial consultation and treatment is short. We do not have lengthy waiting lists and we offer a full range of assisted reproductive treatments to single women, same sex (women) and heterosexual couples. We have a diverse donor bank available to those who require a donor and work with a global network of partners who are able to offer pre-travel tests and scans, reducing the amount of time you are required to spend away from home. We have an experienced team of multi-lingual patient coordinators, nurses, doctors and scientists who aim to make your journey as stress free as possible.
In short, Tambre can, and invariably does, make dreams come true. This quote from Francis of Assisi is perhaps the most relevant piece of advice you can give yourself when you decide that your New Year’s resolution will be to start planning for a baby:
“Start by doing what is necessary, then do what is possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible”.
With the right preparation you can get your physical and emotional health as good as necessary, then let the specialists at Tambre make the impossible, possible!
