Fertility Workshop: Taking Control of Your Ticking Clock

For a couple planning to conceive, issues with fertility can cause discouragement and add stress to the relationship—especially with such a time-sensitive matter. However, by engaging in educational conversations around conception, both partners can become more informed about challenges, consider the possibility of medical assistance and gain a new sense of confidence in determining the best plan for fertility success.

  • Couples within the age range of 29-33 years with normal functioning reproductive systems have only a 20-25% chance of conceiving in any given month. After six months of trying, 60% of couples will conceive without medical assistance.
  • Of the 44% of women with infertility that have sought medical assistance, approximately 65% give birth.

Please join us for a FREE educational workshop to learn more about fertility education and success.

Attendees can expect to learn the following information regarding fertility:

  1. Understand the causes of infertility and when to seek treatment
  2. Understand all of the ART (Assisted Reproduction Technologies) available
  3. Be introduced to alternative Eastern Medicine/Holistic methods to be used in conjunction with standard ART practices
  4. Understand the role of therapy during treatments
  5. Understand the financial impacts and opportunities available
