At Incite.org, our mission is to empower teams with great ideas to solve important, underinvested-in challenges. One of these challenges is fertility–a deeply personal subject for many of us.
After two and a half years of trying to conceive and one miscarriage under our belt, my husband and I needed answers.
Friends, family, doctors and the endlessly available internet info dump of what we should/could do had our heads’ spinning. Trying to get pregnant naturally was no longer enjoyable and we didn’t think we had the means, financially, to explore IVF. I wasn’t even sure if I had the emotional resilience to go down that road.
What my husband and I needed above anything else were answers to our questions and a clear path forward. Incite Ventures’s investment in Future Family led us to explore their fertility membership plan. Being connected digitally to a registered nurse with clinical fertility experience instantly demystified the whole process for our family. Not only was the service incredibly affordable, the online platform made it so that we were able to understand all the paths to parenthood from the comfort of my own home.
Within days of signing up for Future Family’s membership program, we had a lot more options and treatments at our fingertips than we originally thought. Our fertility coach helped us personalize our journey with actionable solutions and an amazing fertility clinic less than 5 miles from our home.
Future Family as well as KindBody, are two incredible organizations in our portfolio that are approaching fertility and wellness from a fresh and helpful perspective. I knew that Incite did meaningful work, but I couldn’t have imagined how deeply personal the nature of this work would end up being for my family.
As of today, my husband and I have about 6-weeks to go until we meet our baby girl, Colette.
Please take a moment to watch this incredible video Future Family made detailing our journey to parenthood. Feel free to share with people in your network that might be trying-to-conceive.
