Naturally we like helping people. But we intentionally chose to work in reproductive medicine because we came to profoundly understand the importance of this work. We love and admire families and we want everyone who wants a child to have a child. This is our passion.
This is an extraordinary time in the field of reproductive medicine. Today we are able to offer more help to our patients than ever before as technology advances at a rapid pace. Our physician-owned practice is committed to lead for our patients and community. We strive to not just keep up, but to stay ahead.
My partner and I went to PNWF because of the positive stance they take on assisting the LGBT community build families. Our primary provider is wonderful. From the get-go, the doctor made us feel comfortable, she took the time to answer all of our questions, and it felt like we were friends talking about fertility treatment, not numbers on a chart. Our doctor, over the course of our treatment, really got to know our personalities too, which was great. I prefer scientific explanations and my partner prefers brief, "give me the short version" explanations. I mention this because the fact that she got to know us in that way really made us feel like she cared about us personally as well as the outcome of our treatment and our family.
I would encourage my friend to seek professional help as early as possible. Both seeing a medical team that specializes in fertility treatment as well as someone to support their emotional health. I would advise them to consider all options. Loving a child regardless of how they came to you is such an incredible gift. I would encourage my friend to not give up no matter how hard the process becomes.
The first thing I put in my baby's baby book was a pasted in sheet of paper showing that we were pregnant, from PNWF. Below it I wrote, "Mom and Dad worked HARD for you." We deserve it even more, I say. Because the baby that comes from PNW Fertility and their crew of helpers is one loved baby. That is a pretty amazing legacy to be able to tell that kid someday.
We have learned that what patients in the Northwest really want is personalized care. They don’t want to be just a number in a crowded waiting room next in line to see a physician they don't know and will only see once or twice. So we decided years ago to commit to providing unparalleled, individualized care in Seattle. And today we can't imagine doing it any other way.
