COVID19 has changed everyone's lives. Communities are in lockdown, businesses are closing, unemployment is rising, financial markets are in decline.
The running joke from COVID19 is there will be a baby boom in 2021, but for those suffering infertility this is no joke. Being told IVF treatment is not an essential service is heartbreaking and stressful after investing significant money, hormones and career in to having a baby and starting a family.
When women set out on their IVF journeys, they don’t stop until they are holding a baby. Being advised to try naturally is misinformed, not to mention insulting. For many, IVF is the only option available after trying naturally for a long period of time and failing to conceive. IVF is the only option available after many miscarriages. IVF is the only option available to overcome male and female infertility. IVF is the only option for a same sex couple. For women over 40, time is of the essence. We don’t have time to wait for IVF treatments and cycles.
To date there is no scientifically proven data linking COVID19 to harming pregnancy and newborns. Treating a pregnant woman is not the same as treating a COVID19 patient. The resources used are not shared. IVF should not be put in the same category as those with elective surgery. There are many private clinics which can continue to practice IVF without any stress or strain placed on medical resources and in fact will continue to keep our economy and spirits alive. Our fertility specialists should be empowered to act and continue IVF treatments at their discretion.
Sign our petition and help us remind the Authorities that we IVF warriors are many. By not allowing IVF to continue they are pausing the lives of many! Show them IVFGOTTHIS.
