My experience as an Egg Donor…..Part 2

  I woke up the following day, and got super busy with cooking, and re cooking breakfast twice, after it made its way from the table to the floor- magically, as of course nobody would fess up to the spills.  By noon I was exhausted, as I snuggled into the lazy boy, and flipped on the TV, the phone rang, of course.  So as I went to grab the phone, Im sure I trampled over …

Surrogacy- Secondary Infertility, What gives??

Surrogacy – this morning I received the below article from one of my SI (secondary infertility) clients, it was a great wake up call for me.  I think secretly I would think, like many, “Well at least you have one child”  This article really put things in perspective for me, again, as they should be. As a Mom myself, I often wonder what life would have been like, had I just had Christina, my oldest?  …

How Does Infertility Impact Finances?

One in six Canadian couples experience infertility, according to the Canadian Fertility and Andrology Society. And for many, it’s a surprise, so they don’t have much time to find the cash. “If there are no funds from savings, the only alternative is to borrow,” says Kathryn Jankowski, a vice president at T.E.
