Established in 2018, Good Egg Fertility is a non-profit organization that helps families fight infertility by increasing awareness and providing assistance for fertility treatments.
Good Egg Fertility aims to provide financial assistance to at least 10 families in our first year with the hope of increasing the number of grant recipients each year. Grant amounts will vary based on needs but are up to $10,000 with the average being $5,000. As a volunteer foundation, over 95% of donations go directly towards the grant award recipients. Good Egg Fertility aims to serve U.S. residents in any of the 50 U.S. states and does not discriminate based on ethnicity or sexual orientation.
Infertility affects 1 in 8 couples. The costs for an infertile couple to start or grow their family are shocking.
- The average IVF cycle is $12,000 with each transfer costing $5,000.
- The average Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) cycle is $1,000 and doctors recommend trying an average of 3-6 cycles.
- The average cost for a gestational carrier (surrogacy) is $100,000.
- The average cost of domestic infant adoption is $40,000.
Many couples cannot even afford to try these options – especially when you consider the fact that a positive outcome is not always guaranteed. Good Egg Fertility recognizes that infertility and pregnancy loss are hard enough without adding financial strain on top of it.
Good Egg Fertility was started by Hayley Oro who is no stranger to the heartbreak and struggle of infertility and pregnancy loss. After suffering through infertility and a tragic loss at 21 weeks in-utero, Hayley and her husband, Ryan, are unsure when their rainbow baby will enter their lives. However, through their hardship, Hayley was introduced to the greater infertility community filled with wonderful people in the worst situation. After meeting some of the incredible people who faced loss, struggled for years, and paid tens of thousands of dollars out of pocket, Hayley resolved to found Good Egg Fertility and help as many people as she can.
