April’s Journey to Fertility: Online Resources
Posted by: April on Apr 08, 2010 in News

April is a CNY Fertility Center patient and has been on her journey to fertility for approximately two and a half years. April will share candid stories and a unique perspective on the fertility challenges many women and couples face. CNY Fertility Center has locations in Syracuse, Albany and Rochester, NY.

Week 43: Online Resources
Last week, I provided the titles of texts that you may find helpful as you search for answers to specific fertility questions. However, in today’s technologically savvy world, online resources are often more readily available. In fact, I often use online sources myself. Below are some specific websites that I have found helpful. If there are any websites you have found to be helpful, please scroll all the way down to the end of the page and leave a comment that includes the specific website.

Online Fertility Sources: – Two adoptive parents, Erica Walther Sclhaefer and A.J. Schlaefer, founded this nonprofit organization which provides emotional support to couples dealing with infertility. This organization also fundraises in order to provide grants to those adopting or to those who need financial assistance in paying for their fertility treatments.
– Erica Walther Schaefer, founder of Parenthood for Me Inc., shares her personal perspective on dealing with infertility and blogs about her journey as an adoptive mother. This website also contains links to other helpful websites as well. – This website contains detailed information on everything from the specifics of IVF to various personal blogs. After our canceled IVF cycle, this website was one of the few that answered some of my most detailed questions. This website also offers some comic relief including a blog under the Community Clair section titled 999 Reasons to Laugh at Infertility.
– Resolve is an online community for women and men dealing with infertility. This website offers support in the form of tele-seminars, advocacy work, various educational programs and personal blogs

Of course, we cannot forget CNY Fertility’s website which offers information on everything from embryo adoption and IVF to nutrition and acupuncture.

Hopefully, you will take some time to explore these websites. As I stated in previous posts, feeling empowered is essential during fertility treatments. Connecting with others on the same journey and being able to find answers to questions when the specialists are not available often provides that sense of empowerment we frequently crave during such an emotional time.

Resourcefully yours,
April all Year
