An infertile couple struggles to conceive with the help of a doctor. And a nurse. And an embryologist. And a financial planner. And unsolicited advice from everyone they know.
“How to Buy a Baby is based on my own struggle to conceive, but I hope it tells the story of the 1 in 6 Canadian couples who can’t make a baby the fun way. Infertility is incredibly painful-and we can’t be there for each other if we don’t talk about it.” Wendy Litner, Creator & Writer
30-something couple, Jane and Charlie, have long given up on making a baby the fun way. Diagnosed with infertility, they are resigned to needing invasive assistance if they are ever to become parents. They are determined, though, to keep things fertilifun and not lose sight of why they wanted to have a child together in the first place. But what happens when so many people are involved in the intimate act of procreation? Can a marriage survive, and thrive, with the financial and emotional pressures of infertility? How much will two people sacrifice to make a new life?
Darkly funny and achingly honest, How to Buy a Baby follows one couple through a cycle of in vitro fertilization. The series provides a voyeuristic view of a marriage under pressure and proves that even the most difficult experiences, that challenge our very biology, can connect us to humanity and make us laugh.
