It costs a lot to have a child, and if you have any trouble conceiving, those costs quickly climb. (In fact, just one cycle of in-vitro fertilization can cost more than $20,000.) So, it’s no wonder that more employees are asking their companies for enhanced maternity benefits -- from financial assistance for IVF to extended paid maternity leave plans -- and that more workplaces are offering these benefits.

If you’re searching for the perfect place to grow your career and family, here are 10 companies with maternity benefits you may want to apply to.
