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. We are committed to lead for our patients and community. We strive to not just keep up, but to stay ahead.
It was especially important to me that I was able to talk with both my doctor and the embryologist before and during our cycle. Every person I met with made me feel like I was the most important patient they had. IVF statistics are a good measure of success, but they are not everything. It is hard to measure the warmth of the feeling I got from the staff at PNWF at each visit to the clinic.
She weighed 8lbs 7oz and is the most beautiful being I have ever laid eyes on. We were instantly in love, and I'd do it a thousand times again for her. It was painful, heartbreaking, and scary but the moment I laid eyes on my baby girl, it all melted away. I still will look at her, and can't believe she's mine. That it actually worked. She's my everything, and we're so lucky, and finally a 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.
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.
