If you struggle with your fertility, you are not alone. Several celebrities have spoken out on the subject and considered IVF to start a family. Khloe Kardashian and her husband Lamar Odom even made a reality TV show about their struggles, while Sarah Jessica Parker, Marcia Cross, Courtney Cox and Trinny Woodall have all been involved in IVF at some point.
But the average person in the UK may not be able to afford expensive consultations and treatments. First Response are a firm aiming to answer this problem by launching the website pinktimeline.com that offers a bespoke fundraising section to assist couples in raising funds for costs associated with trying for a baby.
Couples can create a private fundraising page to share with family and friends, at their discretion, to help them raise funds. The fundraising page will be particularly useful around birthdays and holidays, as a way for couple’s to share their story and ask for donations in place of gifts.
The company was setup in association with the famous fertility expert Zita West, and the website also features fertility tips. "As a midwife, I’m often asked about what lifestyle changes need to be made at this stage. Women can visitpinktimeline.com for tips on little steps that can lead to a healthier you and a healthier pregnancy,” said Zita West.
