Coastal Fertility’s 30th Annual IVF Raffle Announcement

Hope is like the sun, which, as we journey toward it, casts the shadow of our burden behind us.

In our continued effort to take away the stigma and financial strain of infertility, Gift of Parenthood has partnered with Coastal Fertility to raffle off an IVF with Frozen Embryo Transfer Package on October 29th, 2021.

Every year, Coastal Fertility invites past patients to bring their children to the clinic and celebrate Halloween with Dr. Werlin and the entire team. While this event is typically held in person, COVID has made large gatherings unsafe, so the event will now be 100% virtual. 

All proceeds from the raffle go directly to charity, and each raffle participant is entered into a draw to receive an IVF Package, or nominate a friend or family member to receive the same prize.

Gift of Parenthood and Coastal Fertility are raffling off an IVF Package worth $8,000!

Fast Facts About IVF

Infertility is a heartbreaking condition that affects 1 in 8 US couples. For many that struggle to conceive naturally, in vitro fertilization (IVF) is a great option. IVF is a method of assisted reproduction in which a woman’s eggs are fertilized by a man’s sperm outside of the body in a medical laboratory. After an embryo or embryos form, a physician places it in the uterus, and (hopefully) pregnancy occurs. Given that one in eight couples suffer from infertility and more LGBTQ+ individuals want to raise children, IVF has become a household name in the fertility world. Though the procedure is expensive, a staggering 8 million IVF babies have been born worldwide since 1978. Here are a few more IVF fast facts to put things in context.

1 million babies were born in the United States between 1987 and 2015 through the use of IVF or other assisted reproductive technologies, according to the U.S. Society of Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART).

The likelihood of having a single full-term, normal birth weight live birth per IVF cycle is 20%+ for women younger than 35 and drops off with increased maternal age. Women 35 to 37 years old have a 17% chance of the same outcome, and women 38 to 40 years old have an 11.1% chance, according to SART.

The average cost of a single IVF cycle in the U.S. is between $10,000 and $15,000, depending on insurance coverage, patient characteristics, and the treatment center; However, that doesn’t cover “extras” like genetic testing or sperm/egg donoation and many insurance plans do not cover the costs. In contrast, Coastal Fertility’s IVF package is $8,000 with many extras included. The CDC reports about 1-2% of live births per year in the U.S. are via IVF. That’s millions of babies that would not be here without IVF.

In the meantime, we aim to help couples and individuals struggling with infertility achieve their dreams of becoming parents through fertility assistance grants available four times a year.
