  1. 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. ”

  2. 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! 

  3. 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.”

    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.

    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!

“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
