- Corporate benefits
- Home equity lines of credit
- Tax benefits / deductions
- Savings on medication
Navigating these benefits can be challenging, but worth the time. For more information and resources, including how to speak to your employer about adding fertility benefits at your company, email us. Or, click below for a list of resources:
In vitro fertilization (IVF) has been a practice for decades now – the first IVF birth occurred in 1978, and in 1982 the first baby from an egg donation was born. Since then, egg freezing and embryo preservation have also become increasingly common. However, finding the right clinic for you can be a personal and difficult decision.

Even though traditional surrogacy dates back ages, gestational surrogacy is a comparatively recent development that’s been around for more than 30 years. A gestational surrogate—sometimes called a gestational carrier—doesn't share any genetics with the baby she carries. Instead, the egg and sperm comes either from a donor (or donors) or from the Intended Parents.
