RCC to Award Free IVF Treatment in Maybe Baby Contest
Layla Wellness is excited to share that 97.1 ZHT and the Reproductive Care Center (RCC) are teaming up to help couples experiencing difficulties conceiving! Starting July 1, 2020, you can submit a video (4 minutes or less) sharing your journey to starting a family and why you should be chosen for the In Vitro Fertilization Treatments from RCC, valued at $25,000.
The Fertility Centers of New England held a similar free IVF cycle contest to help a couple that could not afford the treatment. The couple chosen for the free treatment, Kim and Ben, had struggled with conceiving after being told they would most likely be unsuccessful. Ben was diagnosed with cancer two times. They did end up conceiving a child, only to have a miscarriage shortly after. They entered the contest without any expectations and welcomed their son, Jason, on August 29th. You can read more about the winning couple’s journey at the center’s website.
Doing your research prior to entering is a crucial part of the process. So, should you enter? It is recommended that you check with your Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (REI) doctor to make sure you are a candidate for IVF. Some patients may need more help getting pregnant; their doctor may suggest Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) as a better choice for them and their reproductive health. You can also look at RCC’s success rate at https://www.sart.org/.
