    Objective: To bring out current evidence regarding psycho-social interventions for infertility care, and identify the best practices in clinical care. Methods: An in-depth literature review on infertility care intervention was conducted using data from multiple databases: PubMed, EMBASE, Google Scholar, and PsycINFO. The relevant articles selected were between 2008 and 2022. Results: A literature search turned up 1 798 citations, of which 25 studies were included after rigorous analysis. Various intervention categories have been constantly utilised to provide support and promote mental health, of which acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) were used most frequently. The interventions exhibited diversity in both content and composition, and addressed a wide range of issues. Conclusions: The review emphasizes that psycho-social interventions have a positive effect on psychological issues, relationships, and pregnancies among couples and can be incorporated into fertility-care practices.
