Financing Infertility

Recently, I was contacted through this blog by a reported for AOL who was doing a piece on financing infertility.  I responded to him and we did an interview for his piece.  He had three couples — one was starting their journey, one was pregnant, and one had succeeded (us!).

I think his article turned out well, and hope that it gives hope to others in both finding ways to pay for treatments, as well as having success with their treatments.  Also, I hope that it helps others who still feel shame or a stigma attached to infertility speak up.  You’d be surprised how many people you know who have struggled in one way or another, and infertility is no exception!
