IVF in Alabama - What To Do Next?

IVF in Alabama - What To Do Next?

In light of recent legal developments surrounding the classification of frozen embryos as children, several hospitals in Alabama have taken the precautionary measure of temporarily suspending their In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) services. This decision, driven by the uncertainty in the legal landscape and its implications for fertility treatments, has left many patients seeking alternative options for their fertility care.

At the Center for Human Reproduction (CHR) in New York City, we understand the concerns and anxieties that patients may be experiencing during this challenging time.
