Thanks to all who came out to our very first Baby Reunion on Sunday, Sept. 9! No one let the rain dampen their mood at this very special event. Patients who achieve successful pregnancies with our treatment “graduate” to their regular OB/GYN after 10 weeks, so our docs may only get to see their patients’ babies on an ultrasound. This reunion gave them a chance to meet many of their patients’ kids in person for the first time.
When Brittany Meyer stopped taking birth control in August 2015, she had no reason to think she and her husband would have trouble getting pregnant. She had always been in good health, worked out regularly and maintained a healthy weight.
But several months passed without getting her period. Brittany’s regular gynecologist eventually diagnosed her with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), a hormonal abnormality that can make it difficult for a woman to ovulate and lead to infertility. Her doctor put her on medication to stimulate her ovaries, and she ended up getting pregnant in April 2016.
