It’s not every day that things come up in pop culture that are directly related to our practice here at New Hope, but the latest hulabaloo with Bill and Giuliana has been quite relevant. As a quick recap, E! News host Giuliana Ranci has recently been talking a lot about the hardships of hew own IVF treatment as she has been trying to get pregnant, bringing what for many women is a private matter into the most public light that someone can.

One of her biggest complaints and hardships was the number of injections that she had to have. The article quotes her as mentioning that, “Sometimes I [had] to get [injections] 21 days in a row, three times a day.”
Not to be too obvious about tooting our own horn, but these are exactly the kinds of things that patients at New Hope can avoid by choosing to go with a Mini-IVF or Natural IVF plan of treatment. These treatments are not only less invasive, but are cheaper and, in the case of Giuliana and Bill could have possibly saved the couple a lot of stress and heartache.
