The journey to parenthood can be surprising. For individuals and couples, the decision to build your family may require the help of an egg donor, sperm donor and/or gestational surrogate. For couples or individuals who require fertility treatments to have a baby, the process can seem downright overwhelming at times, involving questions like, “Is this the right treatment plan for me?” or “Should I pursue another round of IVF?”
