Genetic Insights

Our Generation Fertility team works with a network of genetic counsellors to support our patients when beneficial. Genetic counsellors are health professionals with deep expertise on the nature, inheritance, and implications of genetic disorders. They help individuals and families who may have or be at risk for a genetic condition, investigate the problem present in the family, interpret information about the disorder, analyze inheritance patterns and risks of occurrence or recurrence, and review available options with the individual/family to help them make informed choices. In addition, a genetic counsellor can guide individuals/families in discussions about test result interpretation, prevention, medical management and options for prenatal diagnosis.


Emotional Well-Being 

Undergoing fertility treatments can be emotionally and psychologically taxing. Stress, joy, frustration, and a whole range of emotions are common when encountering fertility issues. Talking to an empathetic professional about your fertility journey can ease your mind and improve your experience.


Anyone, going through fertility treatment, or coping with a past unsuccessful treatment or miscarriage, can benefit from consultation with a counselor specialized in fertility -- whether as an individual or with a partner. 


Generation Fertility works with a network of compassionate and insightful counselling professionals who are here to listen to you, support you and provide you with the tools you need to help you manage each phase of your treatment. 


You can receive counselling for as brief or as long as it benefits you. Our goal is to make sure you feel fully supported during the entirety of your treatment. 


Physical Well-Being

We may recommend services that focus on your physical well-being to help make sure your body is working and feeling as well as it can during your fertility journey. 


We help many of our patients add acupuncture to their treatment plan, as this technique can help reduce the stress and anxiety associated with treating infertility. Acupuncture has also been shown to be effective in the treatment of various problems related to infertility and pregnancy, including: gynecological and fertility disorders, discomfort during IVF or IUI procedures, and side effects of fertility drugs and morning sickness.

You may have heard of people who swear that they got pregnant after acupuncture, but is there any truth to it? Depending on the causes of your infertility, acupuncture could very well help you conceive.

Research shows that acupuncture can lower stress levels, which could be a factor in your infertility struggles. Stress can affect our fertility hormones in a negative manner, so diminishing stress could positively impact your chances of getting pregnant.


Acupuncture may also help to treat those with thyroid issues that are contributing to infertility, such as hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism.

Nutritional advice

During your treatment, one aspect that you can take control of is preparing your body for pregnancy through positive lifestyle habits. Important principles include adopting good nutrition, regular physical activity, and avoiding alcohol consumption and smoking. By improving your overall health, you can increase your chances of becoming pregnant and having a healthy pregnancy and birth. Generation Fertility works with a network of registered dietitians who can provide you with insightful practical strategies for adjusting your nutrition to support healthy fertility.
