An 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.
