“The IVF Talks” is the first ever ticketed event offering education, support, solutions and hope for those looking to begin (or are already involved with) in vitro fertilization.

On Sunday, February 9, 2020, attendees will take an educational and entertaining journey along the pathway from infertility to family. They will hear the latest medical points of view and advancements from leading reproductive doctors as well as from IVF specialists in the areas of nutrition, fitness, acupuncture, urology, embryology psychology and third-party parenting. Attendees will also glean hope and confidence from a panel of “success stories”, professional IVF support groups and our amazing motivational speaker.

Attendees will leave The IVF Talks, filled to the brim with knowledge, solutions, confidence and hope regarding their own IVF path that awaits them.
