Once you receive an infertility diagnosis, it can feel like someone just took your personal snow globe and shook it upside down. It takes a while for the flakes to fall back into a new formation, and the new, unfamiliar landscape often means re-thinking everything you originally planned to build your family.
Getting accurate information from expert sources is key to charting your new journey, and this year – The Reproductive Resource Center’s own Dr. Celeste Brabec is hosting a panel at the Annual Family Building Conference titled, “In-Vitro Fertilization: Is it for me?” – one of many compelling presentations that will bring clarity to your current situation.
If you’re in the midst of waiting for your own snow globe whirlwind to settle down, we highly recommend attending Kansas City’s 8th Annual Family Building Conference (or on Facebook), taking place Saturday, April 28th on the 1st floor of Johnson Community College.

The conference begins at 9:00 a.m. and ends at 12:30, making it one of the best half-days you’ll ever spend if you’re looking for information, contacts, referrals and recommendations about infertility – and all your fertility treatment options.
This Year’s Key Note Panel is Dedicated to How Infertility Affects Couples
In addition to having access to the Kansas City’s leading fertility specialists and family building options, attendees always have the chance to listen to keynote speakers about pressing infertility topics. This year’s topic is one that is close to everyone’s heart: Couples & Infertility: How Infertility Affects Relationships.
No matter where you are in your fertility journey, you and your partner will glean important insight, personal stories and well-proven advice on how to maintain a strong relationship – and keep the romance alive while coping with infertility and pursuing fertility treatment paths.
In addition to this topic, and Dr. Brabec’s panel, other experts will present information on:
