I created the service I wished for when we were trying to conceive, so that parents-to-be would have all the tools they need to regain hope & connection.

Take Control of Your Fertility Journey
IntimacyIVF is built on years of couples therapy and specialized reproductive mental health training. After four years of infertility, course designer, facilitator and therapist Marissa Nelson has developed curricula that focus on strengthening your primary relationship and creating a deeper, more loving connection.
The ampersand represents the loving bond between you your partner. Whether you conceive, adopt or follow a different path, it’s important to protect your relationship so you can make healthy choices and effectively meet each other's needs as you navigate the challenges of trying to conceive.
While it may seem like your partner “doesn’t get it” or isn’t there for you during your struggles, it’s vital to remember that everyone expresses emotions in different ways. For many, grief and sadness translate into anger or avoidance. This masterclass teaches you how to use pain and vulnerability to move from heartbreak to breakthrough in your partnership.

IntimacyIVF focuses on honoring both sides of your relationship and exploring stressors and cultural considerations outside of your partnership. Gain a holistic view of your relationship and infertility to grow closer, improve treatment outcomes and re-capture joy.
