Is there any state aid for couples in Ulm who want to have children?
For the city of Ulm, the regulations of the state of Baden-Württemberg apply. Unfortunately, there is no state aid here so far. The federal initiative “Hilfe und Unterstützung bei ungewollter Kinderlosigkeit” (Help and Support for Unwanted Childlessness) does exist, which provides couples with financial assistance in fulfilling their desire to have children. So far, eleven states, including Bavaria, Berlin, North Rhine-Westphalia and Rhineland-Palatinate, have joined the initiative. Baden-Württemberg has not yet joined. However, it is worthwhile to obtain up-to-date information, because there is hope that the state will soon receive state aid.
Many health insurance companies, however contribute to the costs on the journey to the desired baby. Therefore, ask your health insurance company to what extent they will support you financially.
What are important criteria when choosing a fertility centre?
In order to fulfil your desire to have a child, you should choose a fertility clinic that meets your specific requirements and importantly where you feel comfortable. When choosing a clinic, there are a number of aspects to consider to ensure that the therapy goes as smoothly as possible. The success of a therapy depends on various factors. Both the experience and qualifications of the medical team and the technological status of the laboratory equipment (for example, whether the clinic has a clean room laboratory) can have an impact on the success rate.
In addition to the success rate, there are other issues that can be decisive in the selection process. Good counselling on the choice of therapy, as well as personal care and the availability of the doctor can help ensure all your questions and concerns are answered. Hearing the experiences of previous patients can also give an indication of the quality or shortcomings of a practice, this can also provide you with a level of confidence during the clinic selection process.
Another aspect to consider are the costs. To avoid surprises, fertility centres that maintain a high degree of price transparency are recommended. In the case of treatments with donor sperm, ensure there is a cooperation between the clinic and an experienced sperm bank, as they often offer a larger selection of donor profiles and have many years of experience in the field of sperm donation.
When selecting our partner clinics, we always make sure that both heterosexual and homosexual couples, as well as single women are treated.
