Starbucks is no longer just your neighborhood coffee store, of the coffee
shop that seems to be taking over the neighborhood, it’s now the
coffee shop that is helping to populate that very neighborhood. In a surprising
revelation, or perhaps not so surprising, Starbucks unlike some other
corporations in America, provides health insurance coverage for IVF procedures.
But the company does not just extend this benefit to fulltime employees,
part-time employees are eligible as well, making working for Starbucks
an enticing employment option for Mom’s to be, especially those
struggling with infertility issues. Now that studies show 8% of American

for several new mother’s and mom’s to be who are donning the
green Starbucks aprons in pursuit of starting their families. You can
