Infertility resources

Each couple’s struggle with infertility is a unique cross. It is our hope that the resources that we are sharing below can provide support in working through the emotional and relational challenges of infertility.

Our goal is to provide clarification and hope as couples decide whether or not to pursue infertility diagnosis or treatment.

The Catholic Church gives special guidance to couples as they research diagnosis and treatment options, much of which we have linked below, so that couples can remain faithful to the dignity of their own sexuality and of each life.

We are here to support you. If you have further questions, please feel free to contact us. God bless you, and we are praying for you.

For more information on dealing with infertility, please contact our offices (see contact info below) for a free hard copy of "Dealing with Infertility: A Guide for Catholics."
