Thirty-something couple, Jane and Charlie, have long given up on having a baby the fun way. Diagnosed with infertility, they are resigned to needing costly and invasive assistance if they are ever to become parents. They are determined, though, to keep things fertiliFUN and not lose sight of the reasons why they wanted to have a baby together in the first place.
But what happens to a couple 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 Jane and Charlie through a cycle of IVF (in vitro fertilization). A “realist rom-com” like Catastrophe, 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.
