Fertility/Infertility

     Our collectivist South Asian culture is embedded in the creation of relationships, families, inter-generational families, and extended families. Furthermore, we almost take it for granted that this is what is going to happen and above all that it will just happen organically - that we really don't need to put much thought and effort into it. However, often times this is not the case and there can be problems at various stages of creating a family. Couples, and families, often feel alone in navigating this delegate process, but there are significant resources available to help you through this journey.
