Medtronic puts extraordinary people like Amber Woods first, creating a culture of belonging and always pushing to get employees the resources they need.

A Senior Field Clinical Engineer at Medtronic, Amber explains how Medtronic has supported her desire to start a family via the Kindbody benefit

Medtronic enhanced its fertility benefit through Kindbody, as part of the U.S. Medtronic medical plans. Kindbody's mission is to make fertility and family-building care more affordable and accessible for all.

For Amber, this access to Kindbody enabled her to be less stressed about the timing of starting a family.

"The benefit covers 3 cycles of egg retrieval as well as IVF procedures," she explains.
