Protect Your Ampersand

Your ampersand represents two important aspects of your fertility journey: (1) the quest to add new life and love into your family ecosystem, and (2) the bond among you and your support system - including romantic partner, friends and family - into which your new addition will enter.

Regardless of the treatment path and medical outcome, it is critical that patients are emotionally equipped with the tools to protect their ampersand so they can make healthy choices while navigating the fertility journey.

Find Balance & Perspective

Fertility Haven focuses on individual, relationship, environmental and socio-cultural considerations that play a critical role in the emotional wellbeing and treatment outcomes of patients and their partners during fertility treatment.
