Pregnancy and fertility

Accessing fertility treatment

Having IVF can be emotionally and physically draining, but help and support is available if you need it.

Your fertility clinic will offer you an opportunity to talk to a counsellor, and you may find it useful to join a fertility support group or online forum for support.


A pregnancy is a huge change in our lives, especially if it's a first baby. It can be an exciting time, but physical changes and hormonal changes can be tricky.

You can learn more about managing feelings in pregnancy on the NHS website.

Other webpages on the Healthy Stockport website might also help with certain feelings you’re having.

Baby loss and miscarriage

If you're experiencing the death of a child, or the loss of a baby during pregnancy, you can find support locally and nationally.

The Greater Manchester Bereavement Service can give support and information after the loss of a loved one.

National charity Sands can offer specific support through their helpline, app and Stockport-based support group.
