8 Thoughtful Gift Ideas for Those Going Through IVF

Holidays | Support | Fertility Treatment

1 in 8 couples experience infertility, which likely means you or someone you know has gone through or is currently navigating this experience. It can be a short journey for some, long for others, but at some point, it's mentally and physically draining for almost everyone going through the process.

 

2020 Has Been Rough.

End it With Something Special.

The holidays can be especially difficult for those who are experiencing infertility - the extra focus on family can be hard if you're struggling to grow your own. Then take into account that we're in the middle of a pandemic where everyone is dealing with their own financial, professional, family, and added health issues. To put it simply: it's a lot.

If you're looking for some great stocking stuffers, items to add to your own list, or just looking for a reason to spoil yourself during this journey, these items are the answer to a more relaxing and motivational IVF journey.

OnePageBookCoverImage

Our dear friend, Karen Jefferies (aka Hilariously Infertile) is an infertility advocate and social influencer. Her mission is to make others who struggle with infertility laugh for a change. In her spare time outside killing the Instagram game and teaching her fourth grade class, she wrote a book titled, “Hilariously Infertile: One Woman's Inappropriate Quest to Help Women Laugh Through Infertility.” This is a comedic and self-deprecating look into the harsh, scary, and often sad world of infertility that Karen somehow turns fun. We highly recommend it!
