Grandparents Funding Procedures

Grandparents_fertility_blog_july09.JPG Fertility procedures can be very expensive for couples dealing with infertility, especially if many rounds of treatment are needed. Grandparents, who desperately want grandkids of their own, have been found by a UK magazine to be a key contributor to paying for such procedures. "One in eight couples undergoing fertility have their bill subsidized to the tune of thousands of pounds by would-be-grandparents. The figure is higher for older women, who are more likely to have to go private, with a quarter of over-40s having their IVF attempts funded by their parents" reported the Daily Mail. Grandparents offer their children an answer to their financial needs. Even if they fund only part of the procedures, this money can relieve a great deal of stress off of couples.
