The Infertility Center uses a team approach to provide personalized care and support for couples experiencing fertility problems. Recognizing that infertility is not just a physical condition, but an emotional and social condition as well, the care given is very holistic in nature. In evaluating the infertility process, Women’s Clinic believes it is important to assist couples in making informed choices about the many treatment options available and then working together to develop a plan of care based on personal family goals. Infertility team members include the physician, the nurse coordinator and an ultrasound technician. A certified professional counselor is available to assist patients with development of coping techniques to effectively deal with the variety of emotional factors and stresses associated with infertility treatment.

Assisted Reproduction Technology (ART)

Infertile couples who have been unable to conceive through initial treatment options often wish to explore Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART). For this reason, C. Maud Doherty, Reproductive Endocrinologist specializing in the treatment of infertility and hormonal problems, joined Women’s Clinic as an associate partner in 1995. With Dr. Doherty on staff, the clinic can now offer the very latest technology in the treatment of infertility. She consults with couples considering ART including InVitro Fertilization (IVF), Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET), Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI), Donor Egg, Donor Sperm, Pre-Implantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD), and Pre-Implantation Genetic Screening (PGS).

These techniques have helped many patients to achieve pregnancies which would have been thought impossible in the not-so-distant past. Women’s Clinic infertility care is designed to provide continuity for patients undergoing ART by coordinating all lab testing and diagnostic procedures, regulation and monitoring of medication dosages, and providing education, emotional support and preparation for the ART procedure.
