Support for Patients
Our Patient Programs
Fertility Out Loud is a comprehensive program where patients can explore, self-educate, and reinforce what they learned at the clinic. It further supports patients by providing help with:
- understanding fertility challenges and treatment options
- navigating insurance coverage
- finding a reproductive endocrinologist in their area
- preparing for their appointments
- connecting to a community
Guidance along the patient journey
Fertility Out Loud works with advocates and aspiring parents who are on a variety of paths to parenthood. The information provided can support what patients learn from their provider.
Fertility Outreach offers personalized guidance from trained fertility coaches in English or Spanish, at no cost,*† and can provide patients with:
- access to credible information and resources
- support through trusted experience
- education on fertility topics pertaining to a patient’s personal journey
Patients are sending an average of 5 text messages to our coaches when they have questions—complementing the care they receive at the clinic.
