Having a baby can be a complicated, expensive, emotional journey.

Have you dealt with infertility? Tried IVF? Turned to a sperm or egg donor? Found a surrogate? Decided on adoption? Frozen your eggs? Given up trying to have a child because it got too expensive?

How has it affected you emotionally and financially?

Let us know how money has factored into your decisions about how or whether to build your family. 

A Marketplace reporter may get in touch with you.

If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air.  But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.

Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.

When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.
