Having a baby in the fertility maze

Having a baby in the fertility mazeFor couples who need help to conceive, the services available have become a confusing array of medical, emotional, financial and - sometimes - legal options.

That's why a new specialty has cropped up: the fertility consultant. While a fertility specialist - or reproductive endocrinologist - is the physician who can make the science happen, a fertility consultant can help couples navigate the maze: what doctor to choose, which clinic has the best statistics and intangibles that can't be answered in a spreadsheet. A fertility consultant is part researcher, part consumer advocate and part sympathetic ear, among other things.

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.
