When we got married in 2004 we knew it was going to be a challenge to get pregnant. After trying for 3 years we decided to seek help. We were seen by one clinic, who after lots of testing, told us that I had PCOS and that we had some male-factor issues; the only way we’d be able to have a family would be through an IVF procedure. We were crushed, we didn’t know what we were going to do and we felt our dreams of having a family slipping away. We had friends and family members having new babies and we kept questioning why this was such a challenge for us.

We got orders to move to Georgia and once settled I asked my primary physician for a referral to a fertility doctor. They referred me to Dr Brown. From our first meeting my husband and I were at ease with him. He was very upbeat and easy going and we knew we were in the right place. We never once felt like Dr Brown was pushing us towards one direction or another, he listened to us and understood our situation. We decided to start from the bottom and work our way up to IVF, if that was needed. Dr Brown was very positive and told us we would get pregnant. We did a few rounds of just medication with no success and decided to try an IUI, which was also unsuccessful. We decided we would try a few more rounds of just medication before my husband was to leave for a deployment. To our surprise on June 6, 2011 we saw that + sign we had been waiting for and we were beyond happy! This day was 7 ½ years in the making. The pregnancy was rough and we had some issues but our beautiful baby girls Gracelyn and Hannah were born on January 3, 2012, 6 weeks early and very small. After 7 ½ years of tears and heartache, a few fertility treatments, one rough pregnancy and a NICU stay later we have our family and we have Dr Brown to thank for that. We are so happy that Dr Brown was brought into our lives and helped us receive the most precious gift in the world. Dr Brown really does help in conceiving miracles (and I have 2 to prove it)!
