In one of my previous articles, I've talked about how moms are having children in their 30s rather than their 20s. Because of this leap, more couples are weighing their options with IVF and other fertility treatments to boost their shot at having a smooth pregnancy. Not to mention, one in every eight couples in the United States have some type of fertility issue, regardless of age. Although fertility treatments have become increasingly popular, they come with a hefty price tag that not every couple can afford.
Thanks to a very generous Bay Area startup, Future Family, more couples can seek the treatment they need and have more affordable options presented to them. This includes a new fertility age test that can be taken in the convenience of your own home to determine an estimated amount of time you have left to make a baby. This startup was founded by Claire Tomkins and Eve Blossom following Tomkins putting $100,000 into six rounds of IVF to finally have a baby.
Having gone through the experience herself, Tomkins understands what kind of financial strains this may put on many families and she wanted to do something for them. Freezing eggs with Future Family could cost as little as $75 a month, including all clinic costs, medications and storage in the first year. Get this, IVF could cost as little as $125 a month, all inclusive! Future Family is going to change lives!
