Although this article originally appeared a few months ago, Jan Goodwin’s “Planes, Trains, and Fertility Clinics” is always a helpful read for intended parents looking to go abroad for treatment, or anyone wanting to gain a better understanding of cross border reproductive care. Goodwin begins her article by talking about the history of the ‘medical tourism’ field. Instead of looking at traveling for treatment as a compromise in order to save money, Goodwin points out that medical technologies in other countries often surpass the US—and the potential for a beautiful vacation doesn’t hurt either! She sprinkles success stories throughout the article, adding a personal touch to the information that she provides. Also covering insurance and cost—this article is a must read!
