fertility center offers free treatment for Mothers DayAn Allegheny County fertility center said today it will offer free treatment for couples struggling with infertility in recognition of Mother's Day.

Reproductive Health Specialists, which has offices in Monroeville and Wexford, is sponsoring an in vitro fertilization, or IVF, giveaway. The procedure can cost $12,000.

IVF involves an egg and sperm being harvested to create an embryo that is then implanted in the mother. It is the most common fertility procedure in the United States.

"I can't think of a better way to commemorate Mother's Day than to hold this giveaway," Dr. Judith Albert, co-founder and medical director of the center, said in a news release. "I hope our efforts will help a woman achieve her dream of becoming a mother."

Entrants must be struggling with infertility for over a year, be between the ages of 21 and 42 and have basic medical insurance. The deadline to enter is June 30. For more details go online or call 1-800-318-3144.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
