Coping During the COVID-19 Pandemic: Message for Our Patients

The Covid-19 pandemic has changed life as we know it. For those patients struggling with infertility, particularly those awaiting treatment, anxiety and distress are both common and understandable responses to an unprecedented situation. At Merrion Fertility Clinic, we are here to support and guide you through this uncertain time.

Merrion Fertility have a number of support systems in place, including:

  • Support group meeting next Wednesday, 15th April by phone/video link
  • Patient consultations via phone or video link
  • Clinic is currently fully staffed and available to answer any questions (though most of us are working remotely)
  • Kay Duff, our fertility counsellor, can be contacted through the clinic or confidentially on +353 (1) 8319625 or  at catherineduff76@gmail.com.

For additional practical information on coping with stress and anxiety, please see the following excellent article recently published by the Mental Health Professional Group.
