'Eggcicle' is a new online community site for women and families who have not been able to have children in the traditional way

SMITHFIELD, Va., April 26, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- After successfully navigating her own long journey through In Vitro

Fertilization (IVF), Rebecca Kilduff is launching eggcicle, an online community site for women and families who have not been able to have children in the traditional way. National Infertility Awareness Week is a timely backdrop for the site's launch as both the National Infertility Association and eggcicle make clear that infertility does not discriminate but cuts across all sectors of American society.

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that 12 percent of American women between the ages of 15-44 have trouble getting pregnant or carrying a baby to full term. Infertility treatments are expensive and not usually covered by health insurance. On average, IVF treatments cost $10,000 per cycle plus medications. The older the woman, the lower the success rate.

The process of IVF can be extensive, expensive and lonely. eggcicle's mission is to support women with information, resources and success stories that affirm their desires to build a family through IVF even when barriers and obstacles seem insurmountable.

"In my view of the world, there is not one path to having a baby," said founder Kilduff. "My fertility journey has been long, emotional, expensive, painful and joyous. I created eggcicle to provide information and inspiration to other families who want to have children but haven't been able to follow a traditional path."

eggcicle is a place where women can share their stories and support each other during the IVF process—a hub of insights and real-world experiences. Eggcicle will support its community with empathy borne out of the IVF journey of its founder.

"With the love and support of my family, countless friends and a team of dedicated doctors, I was able to make my dreams a reality," Kilduff said. "I want to help other families do the same."

About eggcicle eggcicle is an online hub that provides relatable information on infertility challenges and experiences of women who have successfully navigated the journey. The term "In Vitro Fertilization" or IVF, covers a range of procedures to help women have a baby. eggcicle helps clear the confusion with facts and stories to help women build the family of their dreams with the support of a like-minded community.
