“Ask what does the price include? Also ask the question, what does the price not include that I can still reasonably expect I will be asked to pay? Because you might be given a price for example and it might not include sedation for instance. Three-quarters of women would prefer to have sedation for their egg collection so it would be reasonable that you also want this and need to pay for it.”
