Infertility affects 1 in 8 couples in the United States, according to federal statistics. Many women turn to specialists, online research, books and DVDs to gain as much knowledge as possible when it comes to dealing with this struggle — and, of course, the stories of other couples who have been through it and have successfully become parents.
My Future Baby is a compelling look at couples who are using the latest fertility procedures to try and have a baby. It provides education, awareness and hope for those trying to conceive.
In the film, fertility experts explain the latest breakthroughs in fertility options and procedures. Viewers follow the dramatic stories of women currently undergoing fertility treatments. The film sheds light on every aspect of modern fertility — from the advanced scientific procedures to their success rates — with the help of 4D animations from inside the human body.
The DVD also comes with a two-hour bonus video, Infertility ABCs, that answers common questions and topics about infertility and treatment options, such as: recurrent miscarriages; diet and lifestyle; traditional Chinese medicine; fertility medications; intrauterine insemination (IUI); in vitro fertilization (IVF); and much more.
Becoming an educated patient is empowering. Brigitte Mueller, the producer and filmmaker of My Future Baby, says she was inspired to create the movie after receiving misleading information from her gynecologist in her early 30s. She emphasizes that getting the correct facts and options and creating a plan are important when faced with infertility.
Infertility does not discriminate: More and more women — both young and old — are looking for help in overcoming challenges to conceiving a baby. We're sure the last thing you want to hear is not to stress about it — but it's true: The mind-body-baby connection is just as important as what's going on with your physically.
Thanks to more awareness and education, the subject of infertility is becoming less taboo. But despite all the news reports, many of us don't know the money details of dealing with this condition. Our Financials of Infertility page breaks down the prices of needing help to get pregnant.
