Seize the future

Seize the future is an online app to support people who do not manage to conceive with fertility treatment

Many people desire to have children at some point in life but not all manage to fulfill this life goal and around 72 million people worldwide have problems conceiving a child.

The Cardiff Fertility Studies Group at the Cardiff University School of Psychology has been researching infertility and through this research we showed that:

  • people who do not have the children they desire to have can experience significant grief and suffering
  • this can be true for both childless people and people with children who still wish for more children
  • coming to terms with unmet parenthood goals takes time
  • it requires an active effort to accept and make meaning of one’s situation and find new fulfilling life goals to pursue.

The Cardiff Fertility Studies Group is working in partnership with Infertility Network UK to develop an e-health intervention to support people with unmet parenthood goals.
