More and more IVF clinics are offering time-lapse imaging of IVF embryos to couples going through treatment.

“Us” Time in the TTC Free Zone is about creating a time and space where you and your partner are free from thinking and talking about your fertility treatment. You are both dealing with the stress of your journey in your own terms when you are apart, and undoubtedly when you are together. Give your “We” permission to just take a deep breath.

But all of this dramatically changes once you enter the world of infertility.
