The Cost of Infertility

Dr Navdeep Singh Pannu, Fertility Specialist

The Cost of Infertility

Fertility treatments offer a lifeline to couples who aren’t able to or are struggling to conceive naturally, but they come at a cost. Procedures such as IVF can be a significant financial burden, and that’s not even accounting for the costs of raising a child. We speak to fertility specialist Dr Navdeep Singh Pannu on how he helps couples navigate the financial complexities of fertility treatments, and how the government and financial companies can do better to support them.
