money, and i'm not saying we have a lot of money but it took our families, our savings, it took a go fund me account, it took everything you could imagine to try to create the family we wanted.>> there are certain times we felt why are we being punished because we are unable to have children in a natural way, so it felt like we were being punished. >> the fact that money keeps somebody from having the greatest gift in the world is heartbreaking to me.>> the ivf fertility's can one $20,000 in the egg and in vitro or surrogate services can run upward of $50,000. they were offering egg freezing is part of the benefits package , and for women that wanted to start delaying for a family.
