Fertility Haven is the right place for you if

  • You are suffering in silence about your challenges in starting a family
  • You are doing your best to push through the sadness over a miscarriage(s) or unsuccessful IVF cycles
  • You feel all alone and that your partner does not understand what you are going through
  • You have no idea how to emotionally support your partner
  • You are struggling with the financial toll and high-stakes of infertility treatment
  • You are using donor-assisted reproductive methods and need psycho-emotional screening and support for the process
  • You are emotionally and physically exhausted from this process and thinking about taking a break
  • You fear that you will never be parents, and don’t want to get their hopes up for fear of disappointment
  • Your everyday life revolves around the singular focus of conceiving a baby, and sex has become routine

1 in every 4 couples will experience a miscarriage.
