In recent years, psychosocial approaches in the treatment and care of infertility have become increasingly important. Although important developments are being made in this issue in our country, psychosocial approaches in institutions are not implemented systematically and in line with certain standards. Some institutions working with couples with fertility problems around the world have made similar nursing interventions supporting the treatment as institutional policy and have implemented each couple. In Royal College of Nursing, fertility nurses practice regular psychosocial support interventions for couples during the diagnosis and treatment. In Boston In Vitro Fertilization center, nurses have implemented brain-body program couples receiving fertility support to parallel treatment. In Canada, International Federation of Gynecologic and Obstetrics has developed systematic steps for health professionals to follow in couples with fertility problems. Nurses also apply methods such as hypnofertility and fertility yoga in some institutions. These standarts will allow couples to take individual care.
