Jill and Tom Clinton knew they wanted to have kids after they got married in 2006 – and they weren’t getting any younger. So, after a miscarriage, the couple turned to a fertility clinic.
The Clintons’ health insurance policy didn’t cover in vitro fertilization, which averages more than $12,000 per cycle. Nevertheless, the couple dug into their savings to pay for enough IVF cycles to conceive a son they named Harrison.
“We were thrilled,” Jill told Dr. Nancy Snyderman, NBC’s chief medical editor.
But the couple knew they wanted a bigger family – and they weren’t sure how many cycles it would take to conceive a little brother or sister for Harrison.
“We knew that we wanted to have more kids, although we had limited funds and we weren’t sure how many tries we could get,” Jill told TODAY.
