Baby of the Month

  1. June Baby of the Month: Meet Scarlett

    In 2007 my husband Justin and I we found out we were pregnant and on December 6, 2007 we welcomed our son, Ryder Clifton Gaskins. When Ryder was 4 we discussed adding another little one to our family.  We didn’t worry at first when I wasn’t getting pregnant because we were so busy with three active boys, two of which came from my husband’s previous marriage. We then started to worry a bit more on why I wasn’t conceiving as I had done so easily before.

    I saw an amazing OB/GYN in Jacksonville who ran tests, one of which was to see if my fallopian tubes were open for the eggs to travel through.  He discovered that in all the trauma having my son my cervix had closed.  He did a procedure to re-open my cervix and we then proceeded with Clomid and 2 rounds of IUI.  Nothing was working to our dismay. So he referred us to Dr. Brown. From the get go, Dr. Brown was positive and incredibly optimistic about us getting pregnant.

    So much so that when he inserted the first embryo on our scheduled day he said “That’s it, congratulations, you’re pregnant!” And WE WERE!!!  It was so amazing.  The boys were so excited and we set out on the first part of the first trimester of pregnancy.

    On January 27th we went in for an appointment with our OB.  They found no heartbeat.  They did an ultrasound and found that we had lost the baby.  We were absolutely devastated.  Over the next month we took the time for my body to recover.  We discovered that the baby was in fact a boy and we named him Hayer Davis Gaskins. His name is from all three of the boy’s names H (Hunter) ay (Payton) er (Ryder).

    We contacted Dr. Brown’s office the following month and they said we could do another round of IVF.  With more weight on our shoulders, and more concerns than ever, we began the journey once more.  And once again we were met with amazing optimism, positivity and this time hugs and reassurance that we will have our little one soon.

    On January 26, 2018, almost one year later to the day of losing our son, we welcomed our little GIRL and rainbow baby Scarlett Rayne Gaskins.  A beautiful, healthy baby girl!!  She weighed 7 pounds, 1 ounce and was 20 inches long.  She is the happiest baby.  She loves all her big brothers and of course Mommy and Daddy are her world.  She’s already mastered how to get any of us to do exactly what she wants and we all do it with a giggle and say, “That’s our Scarlett, the Queen!”

    When we look at her we are reminded of the incredible journey we had to go through to get her here.  Dr. Brown gave us our little angel, our little rainbow baby, our little girl and the most precious little miracle ever.  God bless you all that work for this amazing office and God bless you Dr. Brown for everything you’ve done to give us our sweet Scarlett!

  2. May Baby of the Month: Meet Ciela

    My husband and I were married in November 2015 and immediately started trying to conceive. Having been diagnosed with PCOS and being over the age of 35, my OBGYN said we should only try unassisted for about 6 months before seeking other options. After the first 6 months we wanted to try Clomid before anything else and once again, we found ourselves disappointed month after month. With 40 fast approaching we decided to look into finding a reproductive endocrinologist and after lots of research and a glowing recommendation from my OBGYN we decided it was time to begin our journey with Brown Fertility. 

      We went through all the testing and were completely shocked when our results came back and I was diagnosed with diminishing ovarian reserve.  Dr. Brown was very caring, compassionate and even more so, very honest with us. He let us know that he was willing to help us with IVF if that is what we wanted, however, he did not believe that it would be successful and mentioned donor eggs as an option in which we were not open to due to our beliefs. This was all such devastating news, however, God had already shown and prepared us for our path even before our results came back. We had learned about donor embryos (“snowflake babies”by a family member and had already started to do the research before going into the office to get our results.  We also had researched adoption and fostering.  We decided to ask Dr. Brown if there was anything he knew about it and if he could refer us to someone who could assist us moving forward towards donor embryos. To our surprise he let us know they had donors right there waiting and everything could be handled by Brown Fertility. We knew in that moment we were right where we were supposed to be and felt a sense of hope that we thought we lost along what had been so far a very difficult path.  

     We immediately began looking at profiles and getting everything set up for the next cycle. A few weeks before our transfer we were contacted about a profile that we should take a look at and sure enough we felt drawn to these little embryos!! On September 21, 2017 God, Dr. Brown, the staff at Brown Fertility, and this selfless donor family helped make our dreams come true. 

      Our beautiful miracle Ciela Grace was born absolutely perfect on June 8, 2018 and has brought so much joy into our lives as well as all of those she meets. We are so very blessed and forever grateful. Thank you Dr. Brown and all of those at Brown Fertility who helped us along our journey.

  3. April Baby of the Month: Meet Reid

    Our two year old, Reid, is truly our baby blessing! After four long years of infertility we were not sure what the future held for us in terms of having a child. When our doctor referred us to Brown Fertility Clinic we were anxious, scared and afraid of what we may be told. After meeting with Dr. Brown and his staff, we knew that we had found someone who was capable of helping us have our son.

    Although multiple attempts of artificial insemination failed, we did not give up. Our next step was IVF. We were blessed with Brown Fertility and the IVF process was seamless. We were truly amazed and could not believe it when they told us that IVF worked and we were going to be parents.

    Reid is full of energy and everyone who knows him, loves him. He is a church baby, an animal lover, and loves to be outdoors.

    Thank you, Dr. Brown and Brown Fertility for helping us have our baby boy, Reid.

  4. March Babies of the Month: Meet Savannah and Elizabeth

    My husband, J.R. and I have been together over 14 years. We started out as a couple with no interests in marriage or a family, just career minded and young. The longer we were together, we realized that we of course wanted to get married and eventually start a family. God worked in many ways in us.

    I was diagnosed with PCOS in my late twenties, and had been on birth control for the better part of a decade when we decided to try for a baby. After a very short introduction to Clomid following a year of trying to get pregnant naturally, our son Jack joined our little family in 2013. Though Jack kept us very busy with baseball games, millions of bubbles, and hot wheels our little family didn’t feel complete. Knowing I was inching close to the dreaded “over 35” category I started Clomid with my OB and after 6 months it seemed as though Jack would not get a sibling. I was referred to Dr Brown, who upon consultation looked at all my “scary diagnosis” and said, “you want to have another baby, you will have another baby.” He was very respectful, took his time, explained all our options and initiated a plan. His staff, other physicians, and practitioners are amazing. Never an impatient remark, they take their time, and you truly feel like you’re their only patient.

    I decided to under go all the testing and the first cycle of medication at the same time. Nervous that the process required me in the office so frequently at first, and of course as we get prepared to finalize the first cycle, Hurricane Irma made her landfall causing my husband to be on a hurricane ride out team (away from the family) and one of my medications (that was temperature controlled) to be held up in Miami.

    Despite the few bumps, I got that beautiful “pregnant” reading a few weeks later. But with it was very unwelcome nausea and morning sickness. A very different experience than with my first. I should have known then…I joked “…it’s gotta be a girl, there is already too much estrogen in this body!” Upon seeing the ultra sound, we found out we would not be welcoming 1 new sibling, but 2. Twin girls.

    Savannah Katherine (Savvy) Logan and Elizabeth Grace (Gracie) Logan came naturally and amazingly into the world 5/11/2018. They were 36 weeks 5 days, and weighed 6;1, and 6;12 respectively. They are our wonderful miracles, and though days may be hard now and again…this simple couple that wanted never to get married and to have no children have embraced being not only the parents of a very active 6 year old, but the staff at Brown’s made it possible for us to welcome 2 beautiful girls as well.

    Thank you so much for all you do; and how you made this process quite easy and peaceful for me and my little (BIG) family.

    God Bless, Kat Logan

  5. February Baby of the Month: Meet Nolan

    I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was 15, so we knew when we were ready to start a family we might struggle. My primary care physician put me on Metformin to try and help, but after six months we decided we needed to be more proactive, and that’s when we found Brown Fertility. During the initial consultation they wanted to do a sperm analysis just in case- and surprise, it came back saying my husband had a low sperm count. With both of our issues, Dr. Brown let us know that IVF with ICSI was going to be our best bet. We could try other methods if we wanted to, but he didn’t want us to waste our money. 

    In July 2015, we did our first round and were so happy to finally get that positive pregnancy test! On March 21, 2016, our impatient boy, Brayden, came three weeks early and has since brought so much joy to our lives. 

    In September 2017, we were ready to try again with the frozen embryos we had left. With how easy it was to get pregnant the first time, we were super confident this time around. Unfortunately, neither of the embryos took and we were left heartbroken. When we had our meeting with Dr. Brown a couple weeks later, we asked if it would be best to start over instead of using the rest of the frozen embryos. He could’ve said yes and made a lot more money from us, but instead said he was confident that there was another baby for us in the ones left. That’s what we like most about him. He isn’t there to just line his pockets, he really is in the business to help people. I left that appointment feeling so much better about it not being my fault it didn’t work and having regained my hope that we will have another successful pregnancy. 

    In February of 2018, we tried again and this time it did work, our son was going to be a big brother! November 1, 2018 our second son, Nolan, was born and has become the perfect addition to our family. Since I was a little girl, all I ever wanted to be was a mother. Because of Dr. Brown and all of his staff, my dreams have come true. We can never thank him enough for our amazing children and for never letting us lose hope.

  6. January Baby of the Month: Meet Kalel

    My wife and I have been married for about 14 years, and she has been in my life and the lives of my three children throughout that time. After trying to conceive for many years and undergoing surgical treatment, we still could not have a child together. We had been treated on two different occasions by well-known fertility clinics in the country but still had no luck. 

    We had lost all hope of having a child together. One day, a friend of my wife who works with children told us about Brown Fertility and in that moment, our hope returned and we decided to try one more time. 

    From the first moment we visited Dr. Brown’s office, we realized that this time what we wished so much for could be possible. The entire team always maintained a friendly, positive and professional attitude. We were lucky to work with Dr. Cabrera, who took all of the necessary measures to ensure that we had the best possible outcome. 

    After the IVF process, my wife was pregnant for the first time. On November 27, 2018, my wife gave birth to a beautiful, healthy boy who we named Kalel Azael Vasquez Rosario. Kalel, meaning “the voice of God,” and Azael meaning “God made me.” Thank you Dr. Cabrera and the entire Brown Fertility team for granting us this miracle— our little gift from heaven.

  7. December Baby of the Month: Meet Nolan

    “After years of struggling with infertility because of severe endometriosis and fibroids, our good friends recommended we schedule an appointment with Dr. Brown. They had a beautiful baby girl because of him, so we were very hopeful the same thing could happen for us. 

    We felt right at home from our very first appointment with Emily. When we met Dr. Brown, he was so knowledgeable and so good about explaining everything to us. His bedside manner was impeccable, and that was huge for us. He felt that in our case, we should go straight to the IVF process and assured us that we would eventually get pregnant. We totally trusted his professional advice, and are so happy we did because we got pregnant with our beautiful baby boy from our very first IVF cycle! 

    On February 27, 2018, our biggest and most beautiful dream came true when we welcomed our son Nolan into our family. This would not have been possible without Dr. Brown and his staff. It was one of the hardest things we’ve ever been through— full of tests, medications, daily shots, surgeries, and countless appointments and procedures. We would do it a million times over to have Nolan. He is worth it all and we are so grateful we were able to have him; thanks to Dr. Brown, our faith, and science of course! 

    Love and light,

  8. November Baby of the Month: Meet Declan

    Before my husband I and were married, we contacted Brown Fertility to find out if we had any infertility issues as we both wanted to have children. I was 38 years old, had never been pregnant before and had been on birth control almost my entire adult life.  Dr. Brown soon discovered that I had multiple infertility issues.  We then determined that after we were married, we would start the IVF process. Dr. Brown promised that I would get pregnant that year.   

    After the first fresh IVF cycle failed, we immediately signed up for the next frozen IVF cycle.  In my mind I was expecting the worst. However, we were overjoyed when we found out we were pregnant. Dr. Brown had kept his promise! 

    On July 7, 2018, we welcomed our baby boy, Declan, into our family.  We are so grateful to Dr. Brown and his amazing staff for our little miracle.  Without the help from Brown Fertility, we would not be the family we are today.  We are even considering having another baby as we still have some embryos in storage.

    Thanks again to Brown Fertility for our party of three.

  9. October Baby of the Month: Meet William

    After trying to conceive for two years, we were referred to a fertility clinic. We started our journey at a clinic where we were left feeling alone and confused. Our friends had previous success at Brown Fertility and recommended that we go there.

    At our first consult with Dr. Brown, we felt right at home. He was able to answer all of our questions and calm our anxieties about moving forward. He helped us make a plan that we felt comfortable with. After testing, we started the IUI process with Emily and the staff, who were welcoming and reassuring. Several failed attempts led us back to Dr. Brown, who suggested IVF— this was a very scary term for us. We had no idea what IVF would involve. Dr. Brown did an amazing job explaining the process and comforting us through our decision.

    Kristina (our nurse) was helpful during this part of our journey and Dr. Rose comforted us during the procedures. All of the staff became like family.

    Our IVF cycle was successful and we welcomed William into our family in October 2017! We cannot thank Brown Fertility enough for helping us make our dreams of a family come true. We have confidence that Brown Fertility will successfully help us again in the future.

  10. September Baby of the Month: Meet Noah

    After years of not getting pregnant on our own but being too fearful to go to a doctor, my husband and I got pregnant with our first child. We lost our baby due to a miscarriage. We then were referred to Brown Fertility where I was diagnosed with premature ovarian failure. I learned that miscarriages and infertility, while not talked about as often as they should be, are very common. With lots of ups and downs, many prayers and the amazing support of Lauren, Emily and Dr. Brown, we became a family of three on January 13, 2017.

    There is nothing more perfect then starting every day off with kisses from our son Noah and hearing the words we longed to hear for so long—mama and dada. We are so thankful for God’s grace and power and to Brown Fertility for helping us become the family we always dreamed of. The journey may not have always been easy, but it was definitely worth it. —2nd Corinthians 5:7 











    With lots of love,

  11. August Baby of the Month: Meet McKenzie

    “My husband and I got married at a young age, but decided we would wait to have children until we were both done with school and felt prepared.  After 9 years together and both of us graduating from college, with our careers started, we decided we were ready to start our family. However, things did not go as planned. After a year and a half of trying, we decided to seek help.

    After both of us went through extensive testing, blood work, and specialist visits, there were still no answers as to why I wasn’t pregnant yet.  We were extremely frustrated and confused at this point. It seemed that everywhere we looked, people were getting pregnant and having children. We were both young and healthy. What was wrong with us? After talking to Dr. Brown, we decided that IVF would be our best option. 

    After two more months of doctors’ appointments, blood work, medications, worries, and tears, we were able to see our little miracle’s heartbeat.  And we were also relieved to find out that we had several more embryos available for future siblings for our little one. Our baby girl is now almost 9 months old.  Her personality and laughter fill our life with a happiness we didn’t know existed. We would not be where we are today if it wasn’t for Dr. Brown and his staff, and the support from our family and friends.  McKenzie is the best thing to ever happen to us and I am thankful every single day that we reached out to Brown Fertility when we did. ”

  12. July Baby of the Month: Meet Paislee

    From a young age I was diagnosed with PCOS, however as an adult I had no clue how it would affect my ability to get pregnant. If I could change anything about our story with infertility it would be to have met Dr. Brown sooner. For years, 11 to be exact, my husband and I struggled on our own trying to get pregnant. Finally, we decided to get help to understand why it wasn’t working. After years of trying with medical help, many failed attempts with my OBGYN using Chlomid and a round of IUI with a different fertility doctor, losing one of my ovaries due to a nasty cyst, a friend suggested we call Dr. Brown.

    Calling Dr. Brown was the best decision we ever made. From the very beginning Dr. Brown told us we would get pregnant. His confidence was exactly what we had prayed for. We tried a few rounds of IUI with Dr. Brown and his staff however it didn’t work. The next step was IVF. We wanted a baby more than anything and were willing to do everything they suggested to make it happen.

    Dr. Brown and his staff made the cycles a breeze. They shared in our ups and downs and gave us comfort when times were tough. I can remember like it was yesterday when talking to Dr. Brown about the two failed transfer attempts and knowing we only had enough embryos left for one more transfer. He told us we would get pregnant this time, that lots of people on the last try do. Fast forward to transfer day, it just felt different. We were laughing and joking during the procedure and it just felt like this was it. A couple of weeks later I had a feeling I hadn’t felt before going into their office to get my bloodwork because I just knew I was finally pregnant. A few hours later my husband and I were sitting in our living room holding hands and praying when they told us the exciting news that we were pregnant. Multiple people were on the call that day which shows just how much they care and share in your joy when you embark on this journey with them!

    My family and I can’t thank Brown Fertility enough for being God’s tool in giving us our hearts desire. We now have a perfect baby girl and Paislee is everything we’ve ever wanted. Thank you! 

  13. May Baby of the Month: Meet Adam

    may baby of the month

    We had been struggling with my severe, stage 4 endometriosis for close to eight years when we came across Brown Fertility. Up until then, I had endured six surgeries to remove endometriosis tissue from my abdominal organs, and multiple fertility treatments including drugs, IUI, and even IVF that, sadly, ended in a miscarriage of my baby girl.

    At the time we learned of Brown Fertility, I had long since let go of the idea of having my own child and had set my mind on adoption. I was relieved to know I would not have to go through the pain of trying to have a baby any longer.

    Instead, my husband came home to announce that he had learned of Brown Fertility and wanted to attend their upcoming seminar. I was not interested in the least.

    But my husband said, “If you will go to the seminar, and hear what they have to say. If you don’t like what you hear, then I will never bring up IVF again. I promise. It’s completely up to you. Just go with me.”

    talwar family

    In the days leading up to the seminar, I learned that they planned to give away a free round of IVF to one lucky winner. I cannot explain just how much turmoil I felt in my heart as I prayed the following prayer:

    “Heavenly Father, you know I do not want to do this. But if this is what You want, then You will see me through this and give me a healthy child. If and only if that child will grow to love you, then let me win the free round of IVF. If you do not do it, then I will not go forward.”

    A couple of weeks later I found myself sitting at a table at the seminar as Dr. Cabrera gave the presentation. My husband was fully attentive, turning his chair toward the front, hanging on to every word, graph and statistic that was presented.

    All I could hear was unwanted, all too familiar terminology that brought up painful memories. Finally, the presentation ended.

    Then, someone took the microphone and announced that it was time to have the drawing. “Just be happy for the winner, Ashley,” I told myself, “God has other things for you.”

    And then, I heard my name. I had actually won the free round of IVF! It was such a surreal moment.

    adam baby of the month and parents

    Over the next 10 months, the staff at Brown Fertility walked me through some very challenging days. We had my severe endometriosis to address, my blocked fallopian tubes, my high blood pressure, and my extremely fragile emotional state. Seriously, I had more break downs at my visits than not, and they handled it so well!

    It was a hard road. I had to have another surgery before they could do the embryo transfer, and even that surgery was unsuccessful due to the extent of my endometriosis. We went forward anyway.

    On Wednesday, October 26th, we got the call that the test had come back positive. I was pregnant! We were ecstatic!

    And on June 18, 2017, our little miracle was born. We named him Adam Nikhil. Adam as a reminder that, regardless of methods used, he is God’s creation. Nikhil after my husband, which means “complete.” He has completed our family!

    My years of sorrow have ended. God has blessed me, and He used Brown Fertility to do it!

  14. April Baby of the Month: Meet Wyatt

    baby of the month april

    “We began trying to get pregnant in 2016. I had a gut feeling we needed to get help from a doctor because I wasn’t having regular cycles. I decided to seek help and call Brown Fertility.

    Dr. Brown was very comforting and reassuring we would get pregnant. Then, I was diagnosed with PCOS.

    In 2016 we got pregnant on our first IUI. Sadly, I went into preterm labor at 23 weeks, and we lost our sweet baby boy. We started trying again in 2017, and IUI wasn’t working for us.

    Emily suggested I see Dr. Rose about a new procedure called IVM. I wanted to start the process right away. I saw Dr Rose. We did our retrieval. We decided to do a frozen embryo transfer, so my body could get to where it needed to be. It felt like forever! Transfer day came, and I was confident it would work.

    baby wyatt

    I’ll never forget that phone call with my lab work telling me it had worked. We were pregnant! I cried while on speaker phone with the staff. They were so excited for us. Now we have our sweet blessing from God with the help of Dr. Rose and Dr. Brown.

    Our sweet miracle is absolutely PERFECT! Thank you Dr. Rose and all the staff at Brown Fertility. They are very friendly and amazing people. We love you all.”

“Throughout our journey to conceive, Dr. Brown became so much more than our reproductive endocrinologist. He became our therapist, problem-solver, cheerleader, and—most importantly—our friend.”Greg & Dana
