Harper Coaches

IVF can take a toll on your wellness across the board, whether that's physical or emotional. The first step to taking care of yourself is processing the things that are hard to discuss.

Frequently asked questions

What will my first check-in look like?

The first check-in starts with getting to know you, where you might talk about where you're at in the IVF journey and what you're currently doing to stay healthy. You'll have the chance to explore any of your concerns, questions, or observations. Our coaches will listen and help you process any difficult situations. If you don't feel comfortable diving deeper into any issues, that's okay! Your coach can help you explore ways to make sure that you keep yourself well through the IVF journey. The first check-in is your chance to see whether you like speaking with your coach and whether you'd like to continue!

I already have a therapist. Do I need coaching?

Our coaches are fertility trained, so they know about the ins and outs of the IVF journey, unlike a typical therapist. Hormones, timing, and uncertainty can affect how you feel. Your coach will be able to listen, understand your situation immediately, and provide helpful guidance or serve as a friendly sounding board. Our users find that having a friendly third party who understands their unique situation can help them navigate and speak about challenging topics without judgment.

My clinic already offers counselling - what’s the difference?

A counsellor is more like a therapist looking for trauma. A Harper coach is a life coach for IVF, an expert in helping you build goals and empowerment as you go through treatment. Our coaches are here to listen and provide guidance, serving as companions who understand each step of the way.

Counsellors often help with serious issues, including severe mental health challenges and trauma. If our coaches feel that you may benefit from seeing a counsellor, they can help you organize sessions.
