My own experience
called me to serve


Our mission is to provide research-supported and trauma-informed information and mental health support for women to and through their motherhood journeys.

Behavioral health and emotional/behavioral support has years of research, but these have not been well applied to or made widely available for the fertility, pregnancy and parenting journey – until now!

What Remolina means

The word, remolina, means “to whirl” or “to twirl” in Spanish (our founder studied in Spain and worked with Spanish-speaking families for many years). Remolina describes the flight of the maple seed (or “helicopter seed”), which is in our logo. The maple seed symbolizes new growth and beginnings, and, in its flight, is whimsical, light, and carefree.

Our mission is to help women to and through the motherhood journey.

who we serve

Women trying to conceive

Research-supported information about assisted reproduction and its impact on mood, and proven strategies to cope with the host of emotions in this process. And, a community of support that is so needed for understanding—without sugar-coating—that this process is hard.

women navigating pregnancy

Pregnancy after infertility  or miscarriage carries its own set of stressors.  We provide information and support on this phase of your journey.

Women navigating parenting

Mothers who have come to this journey after infertility or miscarriage need information and support for connection and attachment filtered through the lens that comes from yearning for this role (even thought the days are sometimes long).

Professionals & Facilitators

Our founder, Dr. Carole Swiecicki, is an expert in trauma-informed mental health care.  We offer consultation to practitioners and agencies on supporting infertility patients’ psychological and behavioral needs through infertility.

My Story

Hello! I’m Dr. Carole Swiecicki, a clinical psychologist who has spent over 15 years improving access to evidence-based emotional and behavioral services for trauma survivors. My career has included providing services in academic medical centers, outpatient clinics, and community settings.  I am passionate about increasing access to research-supported, quality mental health care.

I am also an infertility survivor, an IVF warrior, and a mom. After my own 7-year journey with infertility and navigating assisted reproductive technologies (ARTs), I recognized similarities among the infertility journey and trauma, and that for 1 in 4 women, pregnancy losses that occur as you are TTC are traumatic losses.

Yet I also saw that there are few resources out there for information and support that are based on proven results.

Having a child after a 7-year journey, coupled with a 15 year career as a trauma psychologist, made me realize better access to research-supported infertility support is needed.

I’ve always been a bit nerdy (although now I call it “data-driven”), always looking to what’s “proven” to work. It’s why I have worked to increase access to evidence-supported mental health treatments in my career, and why in my journey to motherhood I spent many nights scouring the scientific literature to help me be informed and feel prepared for what to expect.

It wasn’t always easy to find information. And I realized some things were missing.

And although having knowledge helped me be prepared, I learned firsthand that even when your odds of success are 98%, that means 2% fail (and I was in that 2%) – and you need support for both scenarios.

You need information and strategies to cope with both what you learn and what you personally experience.

Plus, you need support and a community that will meet you where you are. I became a member of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine and their Mental Health Professional Group to get timely access to relevant information.

I work from my home office in the South Carolina lowcountry 

I created Remolina Support Programs to fill these gaps in access to high quality mental health support along the infertility journey that is informed by research.

Our courses and programs are designed to walk alongside you on your TTC journey. It is my answer to wanting researched information about assisted reproduction and its impact on mood, and research-proven strategies to cope with the host of emotions in this process.

And it is a community of support that is so needed for understanding without sugar-coating that this process is hard.

I get it. I’ve been there and I want to share my knowledge and experience to help your experience be better.
