Thank you to Growing Generations for sponsoring the following post. All opinions are my own.
Having problems conceiving can make parents-to-be feel hopeless. My son took only two months to conceive, but my daughter took a bit longer. After losing my first pregnancy to a miscarriage, I experienced anovulation. For nearly six months, I felt a bit hopeless. I had initially conceived pretty quickly, but the miscarriage threw my body out of whack. After a while, my cycles returned to normal, and my husband and I conceived our beautiful little girl who was born in December of 2011. But not all babies come so easily.
Founded in 1996 and based in Los Angeles, Growing Generations is a company dedicated to creating lives and supporting families through egg donation, gestational surrogacy, and parental education. The company began to help an under-served segment of intended parents: the gay community. Egg donation was still considered taboo in the mid-1990s, but, with so many male clients at Growing Generations, egg donation became a greater and greater need. The company thus started an egg donor company that, to this day, is the only one that has videos on every egg donor. Growing Generations was also one of the first companies to embrace new technology in 2006 that allowed HIV-positive men to become biological parents through IVF.
But dreams do not have sexual orientation. Although beginning as a company that help gay couples achieve the dream of parenthood, Growing Generations helps families of all types grow. The team at Growing Generations believes in family and believes in being of service to others by helping fulfill dreams. Hopeful parents-to-be can choose a variety of treatment options including artificial insemination, fertility drugs, egg donation, surrogacy, surgery, and intrafallopian transfers to facilitate conception. The company aims to provide ethical, safe, successful, and cost-effective assisted reproductive services to parents-to-be regardless of sexual orientation, marital status, or HIV status.
To date, Growing Generations has helped bring almost 1,500 babies into families including more than 50 babies who have been born to parents with HIV.

Struggling to conceive can be a heartbreaking experience for would-be parents. Growing Generations has been delivering family dreams since 1996.
