For several women having a baby can be extremely emotional and also costly.  But one local fertility doctor is hoping that a new study will give more couples the gift of life.

I sat down with Dr. Michael Glassner. He’s a the director of the Main Line Fertility Center, and Dr. Glassner is determined to make the invitro (“IVF”) process more affordable for couples hoping to start a family.

The cost of a fertility treatment can cost up to $12,000 per cycle, and it doesn’t guarantee pregnancy – but there may be hope for local Philadelphia couples who are still struggling to get pregnant. The Main Line Fertility Center in Bryn Mawr just helped launch a multi-center national trial specifically designed and developed to improve pregnancy success rates in women who have undergone multiple unsuccessful IVF procedures, despite having good-quality embryos.

Check out the video to see how prospective patients can participate in this groundbreaking study completely free of charge.
