Reducing Stress

This groundbreaking program offered by the Benson-Henry Institute for Mindy Body Medicine has helped hundreds of women and couples through their struggles with infertility.

Much research has shown that learning and practicing mind body strategies helps to decrease physical symptoms and to reduce feelings of distress, depression, anxiety, isolation, and anger.

The program is led by Leslee Kagan, MS, FNP-BC, an expert in the field of women’s health and Director of Women’s Health programs at the Benson-Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicine at MassGeneral Hospital.
