Kathryn and I were recently the guests on a wonderful radio program – Theresa Erickson’s “The Surrogacy Lawyer: Your Guide to IVF and Third Party Family Building.” It was a great experience – the hour flew by and Kathryn and I made sure it was chockfull of information regarding travelling for IVF and third party reproduction. It was another perfect opportunity to spread the word about GlobalIVF. Even Theresa, who is extremely knowledgeable about everyhting infertility-related learned a thing or two about travelling for treatment. The show aired on Thursday, December 9th at 11 AM PST/2 PM EST but it is possible to listen to the program at your convenience, whenever you want. Don’t forget to share the link with your friends, or anyone you know who is going through infertility struggles or merely trying to create their family through alternative means.
Theresa put it best when she summed it up as follows: Some call it “fertility or reproductive tourism.” Others label it more appropriately as “cross-border reproductive care.” But whatever its moniker, there seems to be a growing global movement of prospective parents who are seeking assisted reproductive care in countries other than their own. These two infertility veterans (that would be us – Kathryn Kaycoff-Manos & Lauri Berger de Brito) have used their business acumen and experience owning a surrogacy agency to create this new venture (www.globalivf.com). GlobalIVF.com is a free, informational website for the rapidly growing group of fertility patients searching for answers about traveling abroad for IVF-related treatments. Their readers include those who need to travel from the US for more cost-effective treatments and those traveling from other countries to the US for more lenient laws and more advanced care. For people needing a bit more than a passport, they offer personalized guidance and hand-holding through the Global IVF Concierge Service. “During this program, we will be discussing the pros and cons of cross-border reproductive care, as well as the most popular countries for it,” says attorney Erickson. “But before patients buy airline tickets, they need to seek advice and become educated consumers to ensure success in their family building journey.”
Thanks Theresa Erickson for helping us spread the word about GlobalIVF.com!
