#njcurj#IVF Journey The road leading to IVF is different for every woman. I had the opportunity to sit down with a young lady age 23. Her IVF Journey was unexpected as she seemed healthy. She was married and wanted to become pregnant. After countless attempts and failure.
#njcurj#IVF The couple sought help. Her OBGYN informed the of the unexpected news that she had blockage and unable to conceive naturally. The doctor then advised that she may be a candidate for IVF. She was given by her doctor the IVF clinic information to further discuss
#njcurj#IVF she, her husband and doctor called for a scheduled appointment at well known IVF clinic. Within two weeks she received her confirmed appointment at the IVF clinic. She unfortunately did not educate herself on the IVF procedure nor did her husband.

There’s been a lot of cheerful chatter in the last week about the prospects of post-#COVID19 #Babyboom.

Will that actually happen? Do we want that to happen?

I have some thoughts...
Last week @TMZ quoted Shark Tank investor, and apparently fertility expert, Daymond John as saying, “We definitely will see a baby boom, 100%". An outcome they described as a "one very good side effect".

The belief here is that being confined to your home during a global pandemic and massive economic downturn is pretty much the same when the power was out for two days during the New York Blackout. But that "baby boom" was pure urban legend. sciencedaily.com/releases/2004/…

1/3 Today I share my #childlessnotbychoice story at @linsdrabwell childfree blog. I am nowhere near to saying I am childfree, but I am now comfortable with saying I am childless not choice and that being #childless doesn't define me. I am more than what I am not. Image

Let's have a conversation about #healthcare that's larger than who pays for it shall we? For this thread I'm going to assume we can pass #MedicareForAll and insurance is no longer an issue. Now let's talk about what problems would still exist for women's healthcare /1
In this scenario #Medicare4All has been passed with the repeal of #Hyde so we don't have a problem funding abortions for anyone! But wait...does that overturn #TRAP laws? Waiting periods? Personhood bills? Heartbeat bills? 20 week bans? Specifically fund Planned Parenthood /2
Unfortunately #MedicareForAll wouldn't overturn all those pesky anti abortion laws meaning abortion would be insured if (and that's a big if) you have access to it. The reason you need Planned Parenthood still is because not all doctors choose to perform abortion /3
