I think it is a really nice gesture but I hope you know what is actually involved. I did IVF twice and it is not an easy task. The preparation for the egg retrieval requires dozens & dozens of shots in your belly, hip and/or backside. I was unable to inject myself so my DH went to a class to learn how to properly give me needles. The smaller the needle the worse the pain. You are injected with many various drugs. The first time I did IVF, my ovaries became so over stimulated and blew up to the size of grapefruits. I litterally could not sit down for days. After the eggs are ready & can be removed, you go under anesthesia for extraction. The insemination is the easiest part. So learn what is required and make your decision. I personally would not have just done that all for money. But in the end I was blessed with a healthy baby of my own. Good luck.
