And the Winners Are…

First, ECF would like to thank all the women from all over America who were courageous enough to pen the stories of their infertility journeys by entering our recent contest. And for encouraging your friends and family to read and like or comment on your entries to show their support as well. By doing so, you each helped us to raise public awareness during National Infertility Awareness Week last week.

Thank you for sharing something so personal. You made the panel’s decision very difficult. And while we are excited to ultimately award a free micro-IVF cycle to one patient, we only wish we could start… or finish as the case may be…building all of your families. You are all so deserving.

We were particularly touched by the way you reached out to each other… despite each wanting to win… and hope you all will continue to feel comfortable here at The Fertility Daily blog and find support here and on our faceoffertility forum on your continuing journey.

We encourage all of you who did not win this time to consider entering one of the two upcoming contests. They will be different …very exciting…and will be announced here and on facebook and twitter, so if you haven’t already done so, please like us on facebook and follow us on twitter and bookmark this blog.

In addition, please sign up for our free e-newsletter, which will also have contest details, plus lots of useful information for primary and secondary infertility patients.

The following is a list of the winning five (5) entries from this first contest in a series of three contests. These five women will each receive a copy of Jodi Picoult’s new book, Sing You Home, and a spa finder gift card, plus each of the five winners will be eligible (along with the winners of our next two contests, currently planned for June and August, respectively) to win one grand prize of a free micro-IVF cycle.

The winners in no particular order are:

1. Stephanie W

2. Giselle

3. Jessica U

4. Starburst

5. Tina D

Please email Lindsay Montello at to arrange for pick-up or delivery of your prizes. Contact must be made by email, not phone, for verification purposes. Please note that failure to do so within 30 days from today will result in forfeiture of your prizes (as well as your eligibility to win the free micro-IVF cycle grand prize) and a new winner will be chosen in your place.

Congratulations! Thanks again to all who entered. Please keep trying to win.

What Does ECF and Hot, Sexy Firemen Have in Common?

By Tracey Minella

Well…….both will have booths at the Long Island Women’s Expo this weekend!

Um, yep. That’s about it.

DISSED! (Oh, c’mon… you didn’t really expect me to call the doc who helped me conceive “hot and sexy”. That’d be like kissing your brother! Besides, we’re friends now…or we were friends…and it’s so much more fun to commit blog- writing career suicide.)

Well, let me get off the hot seat to tell you that you simply can’t miss this event this weekend, April 9th and 10th  at the Suffolk County Community College, Brentwood Campus. It’s still too cold to plant anything, so why not venture out to the Expo where things promise to be HOT, HOT, HOT.

Remember those hot firemen? They’re putting on a fashion show on Saturday for charity! Talk about melting…

But if you really want to get fired up, visit the East Coast Fertility Booth #119. Come over and say “hello”. There are free raffles each day for both Dr. Kreiner’s amazing book, Journey to the Crib, and Jodi Picoult’s new bestseller, Sing You Home. We’ll have representatives from different ECF departments there to answer your questions, or if you prefer not talking in public, you can sign up for our free e-newsletter.

All the info you need about the Expo, including a downloadable coupon for discounted admission, is available at .

So grab a girlfriend and head on out for a day that’s all about the things that matter to women.

And to the ECF docs who felt dissed: Remember, any man can handle his hose, but it takes real brilliance and skill to handle a wand. And make magic.

Now, that’s HOT.
