My husband Dan and I decided right away, as soon as we got married, that we wanted to have babies. We did a few Iron Man triathlons in the meantime, and then we decided the time was right. We started trying, and we did not have any luck. It was very heartbreaking. After medications, inseminations anything you could imagine with another practice it just - we did not get pregnant or stay pregnant. So after about four years we decided to seek a second opinion, and we went to Arizona Associates for Reproductive Health, and it was like a breath of fresh air. At the other physicians we had visited, I felt like it was a very cookie cutter approach to our fertility, and at Arizona Associates for Reproductive Health I felt like the physicians really took the time and effort to make sure my care was individualized and appropriate. They were very kind and caring. The nurses provided me a multitude of emotional support during this process, and it was very much appreciated. They really perfected my care to what was wrong with me so I could have a baby. We had a very different situation where we needed a surrogate. He went through the pros and cons of having a surrogate. They educated our surrogate on how it would be, and I felt very prepared when she did get pregnant for what was to come. At Arizona Associates for Reproductive Health, I was given very realistic, honest expectations about my care and my future with having a surrogate. He laid it all out for me financially and emotionally, what to expect and how to prepare for the next part of our life. And because of them, we have a very happy, healthy 2-year-old baby boy. The experience I've had here at Arizona Associates for Reproductive Health has changed my life 100%. It's like day and night. Before we had no hope of having a child. We didn't know what the options were. Emotionally, we were devastated. And now, my life is sunshine every single morning with my son. He's a miracle. I would recommend hands down Arizona Associates For Reproductive Health. They have made my life happy in ways I could never have imagined. They genuinely wanted us to have a child.
