Stephanie Rothenberg, MD, FACOG is thrilled to be back in the Pacific Northwest and joining the team at PNWF. She is a board certified Obstetrician and Gynecologist and fellowship trained Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility specialist. After attending medical school at the University of Washington, she completed both her Obstetrics and Gynecology residency and Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility fellowship at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Magee-Womens Hospital. During her time at Magee, she received extensive training in both basic and complex infertility evaluation and management, in vitro fertilization, complex hysteroscopy, and medical ethics.
Dr. Rothenberg is a fellow in the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG), as well as a member of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), the Pacific Coast Reproductive Society (PCRS), Seattle Gynecological Society and Resolve.
Dr. Rothenberg is passionate about fertility preservation, as well as providing compassionate and comprehensive LGBTQ+ fertility care. Much of her research has focused on fertility preservation for transgender patients prior to transition, with publications in the New England Journal of Medicine and Pediatrics.
She grew up in Eastern Washington, attending high school in Richland, WA, after which she graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Idaho. Dr. Rothenberg and her spouse met while in medical school. In her free time, she enjoys hiking, travel, cooking, floral arrangement and photography (her mini golden doodle, Brooks, is the most frequent subject).
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.
