MEDHELP CONVENTION

Jan 07, 2010 - 26 comments

I think MEDHELP should have a convention for the women TTC and the women who are already pregnant/mothers so we all can meet!!!!!   Maybe the Baby Dust community Convention!  Wouldnt that be fun and exciting to meet all the ladies that you note and message in real life and share with each other the good bad and ugly..

For Sure......1st..I think we should contact the co-founders of Medhelp to get information as to where we start with them..cause using medhelp name...We would have to get in cleared...and then we go from there.....What you think???

Sounds good...........omg..we all would stay at the same hotel and have fun....maybe we could see if there are any studies going on with IVF's or any other studies and maybe we could sign up for them and so forth..This could really be a great idea!

Yes Ma'am....We could start a revolution about TTC and Insurances not covering IVF!!!!

Yessssssssssssssss AMen AMen!   Its a health issue as well and I think it should be covered to some extent..maybe 70% coverage..or something...............they cover people that have emphezima (howeva you spell it) choose to smoke cigs and when their health is taken them down.they are covered..but us women that have stuff we cant control that is wrong ..why cant this be covered.......................so yeap good thing to add.

I dont even think you really need to ask them.  I was a member of this one web site and there were a group of people (6 total) that lived in the same state who organized an "OFFLINE", it was held in there state, it usally ran from thursday to monday and they had planned events for each day.  I have been a member to this site going on 6 years and i have attended 5 out of the 6 OFFLINES that were given in Atlanta and i also attended an offline in baltimore and new york, mainly a group of people from those states organized it.  They just didnt use the website name when doing so.  Oh yea, they did charge a fee.  Being they provided food, drinks, got the hotel rooms at discounted rate, provided transportation to and from airport, there was a banquet dinner, goodie bags etc.  But i was told the first one they ever held they provided the bare minium and said it could be costly.

The most people that came to an offline was 300 people, and 100 was the least for the offline in atlanta.

in baltimore and new york it was 50 people.

I had a lot of fun at all of them and it would be nice to meet my medhelp buddies especially my september mommies of 09 and their babies:)

If you guz think about doing it and need some ideas or input send me a message

@ latrice414-------> thanks so much for the ideas.....that is so true it could be something that could be done offline without the affiliation with medhelp...

So how much were the fees?

I guess it would go by the most people in that state is where it would be held...

Also where there any guest speakers?

I think this is a very good idea... the only thing thing that I might point out is what if we started with smaller group meetings... I guess my idea would be to have one in Chicago for the surrounding states and/or of the people who feel like going to that one, then possibly pick a few members that are "required" as delagets from that meeting to attend another meeting... I think that would be a less costly idea since not everyone has the money to get on a plane and fly somewhere, rent a car, pay for meals out, and pay for a hotel room ya' know?  

Either that or we could pick one person from each state and that person would be responsible for setting up their meeting in their state and who ever wants to come can come... like what latrice was saying before...

I dunno if we would need guest speakers... I mean what would they speak about?  Unless we had people from insurance agencies speek about why they don't cover IVF... and then maybe we could propose a way for them to pay for it... any who... keep me posted

I like the idea about letting one person from each state hold the gatherings and then maybe one a year we all can meet up...that sounds like a deal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
