Infertility Support Group: A Mind-Body Approach for the San Diego Community
Tuesdays, starting June 13th
Beginning Tuesday evenings, starting June 13th the new Infertility Support Group, led by social worker Rachel Rabinor (LCSW) and naturopathic Dr. Elizabeth Winter (ND), will begin its next six-week session. Started as a way to fill a void in the San Diego community by offering women struggling with infertility a face-to-face, supportive environment, the group focuses on a mind-body approach drawing on Rabinor’s professional training as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Dr. Winter’s expertise in naturopathic, integrative medicine and midwifery. In addition to sharing experiences in a safe, nurturing space, learning stress-reduction techniques like mindfulness and meditation and providing participants with information about nutrition and supplements, the group incorporates elements of Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) skills, positive feedback and journaling. Homework is given to help participants apply the skills they learn in the group to their daily lives. The group is women only which allows for a specific, curated focus on supporting women hoping to have children and so addresses the range of emotions and physical experiences the process entails.
