The Hadassah Rimon Mind/Body Fertility Center
The Hadassah Rimon Mind/Body Fertility Center, housed in Hadassah Mount Scopus, is a model project created to give psychological support to all women with fertility challenges, at no cost. The goal is to reduce stress and depression and thus increase women’s chances of fertility.
Fertility treatments exert an enormous emotional and psychological toll on women. To fill the gap by supporting these women’s needs. The Rimon Center provides a range of Mind/Body therapies which women will be able to choose from while they are undergoing treatment. These include Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Mind-Body workshops, supportive fertility yoga, and supportive therapy for communities with specific needs. Each patient is personally approached by fertility counselor and offered a wide variety of options for psychological support, which take place either at Hadassah, or at the Gefen Center in the German Colony. While several programs of this sort exist around the world including in Boston, Los Angeles, and London, this is the only program of its kind in Israel.
Fertility Yoga at Hadassah-Rimon - every Sunday at 9am Sigalit Reubinoff, a certified yoga instrocture, leads a Fertility Yoga Class at Beit Riklis for fertility challenged women.
On the basis of the services provided by the Rimon Center, the fertility clinic at Hadassah Hospital-Mt. Scopus was submitted as a candidate for 'Centers of Excellence' at Hadassah Hospital. See link to the movie about Hadassah-Rimon
