Wellness Wednesday: Goal Setting

Goal Setting for fertility

“Change is never a matter of ability, it is always a matter of motivation born from a compelling ‘why’. Once you are clear on your ‘why’ setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible” ~ Tony Robbins

The goal of anyone experiencing infertility is to have a child. When times are trying, and you are adapting your life style in what might be challenging ways, that is the goal that needs to be kept in mind. Sometimes when you’ve been trying for a while, this ultimate goal can seem frustratingly unreachable so breaking it down into more manageable steps is key.

As a doctor I determine my goals for treatment from the initial intake and the first appointment.

These goals become a guide to ensure we are staying on the path that we have created together.
