About this project

My husband and I have been trying unsuccessfully to conceive for two years. We found out in the beginning of our journey that we both have fertility problems. It was the one thing we never thought could happen to us. As a young couple, we believed the common misconception that young people have no problem having kids. We knew nothing about infertility and it was a very scary thing to think about. We went to fertility doctors looking for help but none would take us seriously because, they as well, believed we shouldn't have a problem. One even refused to do any tests to find out what was wrong.  The goal of this documentary is help other people in the same situation by sharing our story and others. We want to interview other couples in across the  states and Canada as well. Nobody talks about fertility and assumes that when you are ready for a family, it will just happen. Its the most devastating thing in the world when you find out that isn't true. It can affect anyone at anytime. In fact, it affects 1 in 6 people today. We want to give you an inside look into the underground community of infertility and the everyday struggle it brings, the heartbreak, and the success. So with this documentary, we will give you a look into those 1 in 6 people's lives. I plan on trying everything I can to get this into SXSW and Sundance Film Festival as well. So please, join us on our journey as we travel the country to share our story and others.

We want to talk to people with many types of infertility including; Male factor (low count/motility/morphology), Endometriosis, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS),  Ovulatory Disorders, Premature Ovarian Failure (POF), Uterine Factors, Multiple Miscarriages, Luteal Phase Defect (LPD), Poor Responders, Unexplained Infertility, Secondary Infertility, Blocked Tubes, and infertility caused by chemo/treatments.

All funds raised go to travel costs, to interview couples and individuals that share our struggle, all across the US and Canada. Funds also go to equipment costs, production costs, editing, advertising, and submission fees for film festivals. We currently have an experienced editor willing to work with us. I have contacted local news and papers to help spread the word of what we are trying to do as well.

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge for this project is the time line. The goal is to get it done by January 2015. But of course things like scheduling for appointments and travel time play a huge part in getting that done. So far everyone involved have been very helpful and enthused so we may get it done before our goal. If we do have any setbacks, I will inform everyone and keep you all updated.
