While there is an ample supply of medical experts who offer advice and information to the millions across the nation who experience infertility each year, few can address the mental and emotional crisis known all too well by women who are being medically treated for infertility. This is where Kristen stepped in.
Kristen has partnered with leaders in the field to provide the much-needed virtual support through her on line summits, which included “The Making Dads Summit,” “Divorcing with Grace Summit” and her new IVF series “Connect Your Mind, Body, and Spirit for a Successful IVF.”
Kristen Darcy, author of Girlfriend to Girlfriend: A Fertility Companion (First Books Library, 2000) and the award-winning Love & Infertility: Survival Strategies for Balancing Infertility, Marriage and Life (LifeLine Press, 2004), most recently Making Dads: What Every Man Needs to Know When Dealing with Male Infertility, is the advisor, supporter, and friend infertile women need. Love and Infertility is the recipient of the Hope Award, Best Book, and Coping, from RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association.
Kristen Darcy has served as an expert on the emotional aspects of infertility, testifying before the US Senate in the spring of 2000 about the importance of government funding for fertility research and holistic treatment. She has been highlighted in national publications and broadcast media including NBC’s Today Show, Woman’s World magazine, PBS’ Health Week and The Boston Globe. She also is a former board member and volunteer for RESOLVE of New England, which serves the infertility community.
