“I am a maternal-fetal medicine specialist who takes care of women with high-risk pregnancies. My practice is academic and evidence-based, which means I practice according to the most recent proven data, and I also contribute with my own research on improvements in maternal care. For the most part, my professional life has been greatly influenced by what can be supported with science.
But when an unexpected journey through infertility became my reality, my professional and personal worlds were turned upside down. After two failed embryo transfers with five cycles of IVF and one egg donor cycle, I began to question everything I thought I knew.”
