Meet The Doctor
“Having experienced infertility myself, I know what you’re going through. I remember those days, anxiously awaiting answers and hoping that this might be the month that we’d get a positive pregnancy test. There are few emotions you’re feeling about your infertility that I haven’t experienced myself.”
