One of the largest cryobanks will walk you through the process of selecting a sperm donor. Topics such as CMV, anonymous donors versus open ID donors (and how anonymous is no longer an option with CCB), the different type of vials and other considerations you may not even be thinking about!
THE FIRST APPOINTMENT
CCRM Fertility will share what to expect when attending your first fertility assistance appointment. You'll learn about verbiage to be aware of and suggested questions to be prepared to ask!
Hearing about what tests may be suggested can be overwhelming! CCRM Fertility will go over the most common and standard testing you can expect, from blood work, genetics and hysteroscopy to sitting down with a fertility counselor.
Fertility clinics are not your only option. Mosie Baby co-founder Maureen will walk you through the option of trying to conceive at home by demonstrating how to prepare for (and complete) an at home insemination with one of their Mosie Kits!
Most notably known as “IUI”, CCRM Fertility will discuss what to expect when trying to conceive through a clinic with this procedural option.
INVOcell is a device that allows incubation to take place within the body. The efficiencies created by using INVOcell can make it a more cost effective assisted reproductive technology. You'll hear from the company that makes the device and one of the clinicians who opened an INVO Center.
IN VITRO FERTILIZATION / RECIPROCAL IVF
CCRM Fertility does a deep dive on what this procedure entails and all that you can expect if attempting to conceive via IVF. Plus, we will discuss what the “reciprocal” option is all about and how it is an incredibly unique way to conceive if both partners are anatomically female!
We know that paying for fertility treatments can be one of the most stressful aspects of the process. In this section, we will hear from a CCRM Fertility financial expert who will offer invaluable information around navigating insurance and potential costs of working with fertility clinics.
KNOWN DONOR LEGALITY
We know that purchasing donor sperm is not for everyone and many will want to conceive with a known donor. However, it is not as simple as it sounds! We will discuss what needs to be in place to keep you and your potential child protected and how the legalities vary from state to state.
SECOND PARENT / STEP PARENT ADOPTION
While we wish the issued birth certificate was enough to legitimize both you and your partner’s parenting rights, it is not in the United States. In this section, we will discuss what these terms, plus a few more, mean and why they are imperative to protecting your family’s rights
On top of our full course coverage, you'll hear from Jana Rupnow, LPC, a fertility therapist, adoptee and adoptive mother on how to navigate the emotional journey of the fertility process and how to navigate talking to your kids about being donor conceived. You'll also hear from a donor conceived adult, Lindsay Blount, who shares how parents can best support their donor conceived kids and what the donor conceived community wishes their parents did when they were younger.
Plus, you'll get exclusive fertility discounts and FREE access to California Cryobank, Fairfax Cryobank, and Seattle Spermbank's databases (an over $250 value)!
