We know it’s a tough job to be a teacher…especially when you are struggling with infertility. To spend all day, each day surrounded by little faces—playing a big part in not just in educating these children entrusted to your care, but also in raising them. It’s not a job you can turn off when the final bell rings. You keep thinking about them 24/7. Just like infertility.

When will it be your turn to be the parent at the parent teacher conference?

Well, maybe we can help you get that family started.

Did you know that Long Island IVF is a designated Center of Excellence for the Empire Plan, the insurance provider for many local Teachers as well as other NY State and Local Government Employees? That’s great news for Long Island’s insured teachers and others who want to take advantage of the substantial financial benefits that come with choosing a COE provider for your fertility care and have those services provided on Long Island.

Even those who aren’t able to take advantage of the Empire Plan’s COE benefits can confidently trust Long Island IVF with their fertility care. Our doctors are consistently voted Top Docs and Super Doctors by their peers. We brought Long Island its first IVF baby and many other firsts in the field.

In addition to the assurance of working with a program that has achieved high quality measures, our COE designated program affords our Empire Plan patients an additional financial advantage — once treatment is approved by the Empire Plan, you receive full benefits with no co-payments or co-insurance requirements for the services covered by their insurance plan.

Now is the perfect time to start planning for infertility treatment this summer—especially for teachers! Free from the stress of a teacher’s rigid schedule, the summer months offer the flexibility to do IVF (or IUI) in a more relaxed frame of mind.

If you are not already a Long Island IVF patient and would like to jump start your family-building plans, call us today. With six offices across Long Island and Brooklyn, there is sure to one that’s conveniently located near you.

We look forward to welcoming brand new patients as well as patients transferring from other practices for insurance reasons. Let’s start building that family together this summer. School is almost out. Sounds like the perfect time for a personal project.

Call our New Patient Coordinator at 877-838-BABY to schedule your initial consultation today.

Are you a teacher or government employee who may need help conceiving—or do you know of someone else who does? Please share. You never know if that great teacher who your child loves is secretly longing for a baby of her own.

Teachers, Take Note: Long Island IVF is the “A+” Answer

Everything is better in the summer. Even IVF.

This is especially true if you are a Long Island teacher or NY State or local government worker with infertility coverage through United Healthcare’s Center of Excellence (UCOE) provided under the NY State Empire Plan (NYSHIP).

We have some exciting news to share: Although Long Island IVF has previously been one of only a few designated United Healthcare Centers of Excellence (UCOE) infertility providers through the NY State Empire Plan – effective June 1st, we’re now the only UCOE infertility services provider with practice offices and laboratory facilities on Long Island. And that’s great news for Long Island’s insured teachers and others who want to take advantage of the substantial financial benefits that come with choosing a UCOE provider for your fertility care and have those services provided exclusively on Long Island.

Even those who aren’t able to take advantage of the Empire Plan’s UCOE benefits, can confidently trust Long Island IVF with their fertility care. Our doctors are consistently voted Top Docs and Super Doctors by their peers and the practice has been voted “Best In Vitro Fertility Practice” by the public for the past two years straight–ever since the category was added to the Long Island Press contest. We brought Long Island its first IVF baby and many other firsts in the field.

Summer is just starting. The sun is bright and the mood is as relaxed as it ever gets. We’d love to help you start your family this summer. Call today for your consultation.

Summer Adventure: Infertility Action Plan or Antidote?

Ah, summertime. It’s finally here. So what are you going to do with yours?

On Long Island, the lure of the beach is hard for many to resist…even if indulging forces us to face throngs of little children that kick sand on our blankets as they rush for the waves. Parks and other hot spots for fun pose similar challenges.

So how do you have fun when there are children everywhere you look? How do you survive…and thrive…this summer?

Make a summer “bucket list”. A list of the things you want to accomplish, places to go, people or sights to see, before summer “kicks the bucket” and the weather cools.

Yes, some of the list items may still bring you in contact with families with children…a sore spot for many. But if you put it on your list anyway then it’s clearly very important to you. Infertility has stolen enough happiness. Don’t let it prevent you from doing the things you love best, even if there will be kids present. The simple act of putting it on the list can help you feel more in control and can give you permission to go enjoy it. Take back some happiness during a sad time.

Be sure to put some things on the list that will be fun and do not include families or children that allow you to reconnect with your partner. I call it “forced relaxation”. Travel as far as finances allow or find couples-only fun right in your neighborhood. Tour mansions and historical sites, dine in romantic restaurants (or try creating a special candlelit meal together!), consider a couples’ massage, check out the vineyards, escape for a night or weekend and stay in a bed and breakfast that doesn’t allow children. Maybe even do something really adventurous like skydiving or scuba diving! To coin a cliché: find yourselves again.

For some infertile folks, summer is a time for a vacation from the rigors of infertility treatment. It’s a time to take a well-earned break and rejuvenate doing those list items above. We all need a mental, emotional, and physical break now and then. So if summer is your time to recharge, enjoy it guilt-free. And unless your doctor has said otherwise, resist that whip-cracking voice in your head that screams “You can’t afford to take two months off.”

But if you are a teacher, or someone who has decided that this summer is the very best time for you to put your fertility action plan into high gear, then embrace it full force. Think positively. To the extent possible, don’t focus on the cost, the drugs, the needles, or any of the other negatives of treatment. Instead, keep the goal front and center. This is your chance. Positive thinking can’t hurt and may help reduce stress, which can play a part in a happier outcome. Participating in a cycle…whether it is IVF or IUI…means giving yourself a greater chance to conceive this month than if you were not cycling. Focus on that reality. And when you are not focused on treatment, sneak in some bucket list fun…but not the skydiving!

So whether this summer is your fertility action plan or the antidote, embrace it. It will be gone too soon.

What are you doing this summer? Treatment or a break from it?
