Happy IVF Pregnant couple

We Analysed & Worked On Several Problem Factors That Appear On The Journey To Infertility.

1 in 4 couples experience infertility due to lifestyle issues.

Endometriosis & PCOS tops the causes of infertility in women, whereas in men it is poor sperm quality & erectile dysfunction.

72% couples can't afford IVF treatment due to high cost

Couples planning for IVF find it complex, expensive, invasive, time-consuming & emotionally unsupported.

Confusing, Complex, Chaotic

Accepting & discussing infertility is very difficult, so is asking for help. People speak in hush-hush tones.

Meet The Founders

10 years of infertility struggle, 5 miscarriages, 3 molar pregnancies, 1 failed IVF, brush with ovarian cancer

Gitanjali Banerjee, Fertility Dost Founder & CEO, was born and brought up in Lucknow. A JNU alumni, an acclaimed writer, content manager, a proud wife of a soldier had a huge reality check when infertility hit her.

She overcame 5 miscarriages, 3 molar pregnancies, 1 failed IVF, a brush with ovarian cancer and suicidal depression. One day she decided to turn around everything. She decided to work on her mind-body-life balance & finally had a successful IVF. Her struggles with infertility made her realize the emotional and physical pain, lack of awareness And the need for a holistic fertility treatment. This is what became the founding principle of Fertility Dost.

4 Failed IVF, Twin Stillbirth & Adoption

Purnima Sood, born & brought up in Ludhiana , Punjab had a decade long fight with infertility, facing 4 failed IVF & twin stillbirths. Her twins didn’t survive in front of her for more than an hour and that she says was the hardest thing to accept & overcome in her life. She didn’t give up on her dream to become a mother & chose to become a heart mother. She went for adoption.

She knew there has to be a better way to manage infertility. Together with Gitanjali, she worked on finding that perfect magical potion to support especially women undergoing the struggle similar to hers.

Milestones In Fertility Dost History

IVF Doctor consulting patients virtually.
As there was no other patient support platform in India at that time, we started by pilot testing through a closed Facebook group. Within a month we received an overwhelming response through a deeply engaging community of women. Need was clearly established & we started working on building ‘Fertility Dost’. Our first website was launched by the name ‘Infertility Dost’. We started by building community & awareness on infertility. We got selected in IIT Delhi’s flagship incubator program for women entrepreneurs & won our first grant & gold medal. We were published in The Times of India and Times Now even before we got officially registered in December 2017!
