    We haven't given birth yet obviously but our experiences so far have been fantastic. Everyone treats DP like she should be treated - the mother of our baby. We were asked how we planned on feeding bub and we told them we were considering bf colostrum then moving to bottle feeding so that DP has the opportunity to feed bub and have that connection too and expected them to try and convince us otherwise, but the mid totally agreed with us! We have received nothing but 100% support for any choices that we have made.

    Hey Fluffy,

    Firstly it's very kind of you to be doing some research for your friends, very sweet. I'll run through what we did and yeah...

    We started by thinking that we'd do Artificial Insemination using a donor we'd met online. We soon changed our minds due to privacy, health screening and all the legalities. We also wanted a donor around our age and we found this very hard to find. So we turned to inter uterine donor insemination (IUDI). We called around and got an appointment at city fertility and had to get a referral from our GP. After we got the referral I had bloods taken and started taking pregnancy vitamins. My bloods were good but I needed a rubella booster shot.

    After waiting 3 months for our appointment with a specialist we went to city fertility and had a very bad experience. We're unsure if this was due to homophobia or the receptionists just being a**holes for no reason (excuse the profanity but there really is no other word for how rude these women were). We changed instantly to Queensland Fertility Group. We told them of our city fertility experience and they were so sympathetic. They booked us in to see a specialist in 5 days!!!

    5 days later we met the amazing Dr. who gave us our pregnancy! His name was Dr. Kroon. We went to our counselling that day. We met the donor sperm team and paid a one of registration fee of $500 for using donor sperm. The very next month were were doing our first cycle.

    We paid $950 for each vial of donor sperm we used. You can buy these in lots of two only. The IUI itself was $248 with a Medicare rebate of $36. Bloods were free. Scans were around $80 I believe and consults were $130. I can't remember how much we got back but it was maybe half?

    We had four failed IUDI's then moved on to ivf which was $10,300ish plus $950 for donor sperm. We got $5600 back but had reached the safety net. But all prices range according to the protocol you are on, how many scans you need, drugs, the specialist who sees you and their prices.

    I could NOT recommend Dr. Ben Kroon, QFG and his office at Eve Health Southbank highly enough.
