7 Thoughtful Gift Ideas for Those Going Through IVF
1 in 8 couples experience infertility, which likely means you, or someone you know has 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 most everyone going through the process.
You deserve it.
It may sound silly, but a gift can make the difference, even for a moment’s time. It can show your support for a loved one, or can be a “treat yourself” moment to push through a roadblock in your personal journey. Whoever needs a gift, we got you. Here’s our gift guide for those going through IVF.

2020-2021 IVF Planner $29.99
We all know how much planning goes into an IVF cycle. This planner was made by an IVF patient, specifically designed for women going through fertility treatment. Each month comes with space to write in your cycle day, as well as a notes section, to-do list, lunar calendar, journal prompts for retrieval/transfer day, and more!
Some Comic Relief eBook $9.99
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!
