Tade Alalade, Founder of Beibei Haven Foundation struggled with trying to conceive in the early years of her marriage. She lived in fear of being judged by what she was going through and was unable to find adequate support to help her through.
In addition to her fertility challenges, financial difficulties also played a major role as she could not afford the necessary treatments and had to resort to getting a loan which led her to work constantly for the first 2 years of her marriage to pay for fertility treatments.
It is based on her experience that she decided to establish the Beibei Haven Foundation to support other women and couples who are struggling to conceive by giving them the assurance that they are not alone in their fertility journey and all hope is not lost.
