GoStork Interview Series: Creative Tips for Financing Fertility Treatments, with Devon Baeza @the_fertility_finance_coach

Rebecca Hochreiter
CMO of GoStork

We loved our conversation with Devon Baeza, The Fertility Finance Coach helping those struggling through infertility to “make, save, and manifest money” to pay for treatment. Devon shared her fertility journey and how she figured out financing it, as well as actionable tips on how to finance your own, including how to bring up tough financial conversations, both with your partner and your fertility providers.

Devon knows first hand how important the financial aspect is on your fertility journey. In her own words: “I couldn’t stomach the thought of money being what stopped me from motherhood. That started a journey of crazy ways to make money, to save money […] – and eventually led to us being able to pay cash for IVF” .

Her infertility resume includes 6 IUIs, a miscarriage, surgery, and successful IVF. Her journey also led to a personal transformation – as she shares, she went from “rookie” to “veteran” over the course of navigating her extensive infertility journey. Along the way, she learned to advocate for herself, to negotiate and to ask uncomfortable questions that made things better in the long run.

Check out some of the actionable tips Devon shared with us on financing your journey:

“I really want people to know that it’s possible, no matter what your financial situation is, it is possible for you if you decide it. Money will not be what decides if you become a mother, a father or not. It will not be money, it will be your decision. And I want people to know that it won’t always be this hard. […] And when you get to the other side, you will have become the best version of yourself, you will have let go of all the things that are not working for you, you will have put things in place that will benefit you and your family for the rest of your life. This isn’t in vain. You are stronger than you know. You will keep going, you are so brave to get up every day and keep doing this. It is going to be ok.”
