Whole Person CARE Guide

At Alberta Reproductive Centre, we understand the importance of personalized and comprehensive support throughout the emotional and medical process of your fertility journey.

That is why our fertility care includes the following services to all ARC patients.

Introducing our ARC Whole Person CARE (Coordinator and Reproductive Education) Guide: your Compassionate Coordinator on the Path to Parenthood.

Embarking on the journey to parenthood can be both exciting and challenging. At ARC, we understand that fertility care is not just a medical process; it is also deeply personal and emotional. That is why we are proud to introduce our dedicated Whole Person CARE Guide, a compassionate coordinator committed to supporting you every step of the way.

We recognize that growing your family is a profoundly meaningful human experience. We are also aware that trying to create a healthy pregnancy can bring up challenging thoughts & emotions, as well as a sense of loss of control.

We want to nurture your sense of agency throughout the process, because we see that you should be in charge of your fertility journey.
