The struggle to get pregnant is real. For many, infertility is a battle that seems to never end but there is hope in technology, nutrition, and patience. In Vitro Fertilization is an assisted reproductive technology (ART) commonly referred to as IVF.

IVF is the process of fertilization by extracting eggs, retrieving a sperm sample, and then manually combining an egg and sperm in a laboratory dish. The embryo(s) is then transferred to the uterus.
