What Happens When Fertility Specialists and Babies Meet for the First Time?

April is National Infertility Awareness Month, and the fertility specialists at Reproductive Gynecology & Infertility (RGI) wanted to share what happens when we get to meet the babies we help create.

Thrilled. Happy. Joyful.

These are just some of the words that come to mind when a baby conceived through in vitro fertilization (IVF) comes back to RGI for a visit. While we’ve known this little person since it was an impossibly tiny embryo, our eyes soften as we marvel at their tiny fingers and toes. It’s a special moment filled with heartfelt congratulations and well wishes. It’s also a very welcome reminder of why we do what we do.

“It brings me so much joy to reconnect with patients after they give birth. The RGI IVF process itself is highly personalized and gives me the opportunity to really get to know people, learn intimate details about their fertility struggles and help grow the family of their dreams. Meeting the baby is incredibly rewarding. I love to watch couples transform from disheartened to joyful—and so in love with their new little boy or girl.”

Is IVF right for me?

Unfortunately, infertility is very common, occurring in approximately 1 in 8 couples. The fertility specialists at Reproductive Gynecology & Infertility understand the emotional and physical toll fertility issues can take on people—and relationships. If you’ve been trying to conceive for 12 consecutive months, you might want to consider treatments like IVF. IVF is a safe and effective process of fertilization in which an egg is combined with a sperm outside of the body.

How much does IVF cost?

If you and your partner meet all of the IVF qualifications, each fresh embryo cycle can cost approximately $25,000. We understand a financial burden can make an already stressful situation worse. That’s why we created the IVF 100% Success Guaranteed Plan; we wanted to eliminate the stress of success. RGI is the first and only practice in Northeast and Central Ohio to offer a plan that shares the financial risk with IVF patients.

Our IVF 100% Success Guaranteed Plan means that we guarantee you’ll take home a baby or we’ll refund every penny.

“Scientific evidence confirms that stress and fertility go hand in hand. We want to help manage the emotional stress as well as the fertility of our patients. With the IVF 100% Success Guaranteed Plan, we can help ease the financial burden so our patients can focus on their mental and physical wellness during their fertility journey.”

How can I afford IVF?

There are many insurance plans that can help lower your costs—and financial risk. However, we are proud have an exclusive partnership with Samantha’s Gift of Hope, a quarterly monetary award intended for those who are already a part of RGI’s IVF 100% Success Guaranteed Plan in the Northeast Ohio office locations.

If you’d like to learn more about RGI, our IVF 100% Success Guaranteed Plan or applying for a Samantha’s Gift of Hope grant, please call 866-537-2461. We can’t wait to help grow your happily ever after… and marvel at your new baby girl or boy. There is hope, and we can help.

What Our Patients Say About Us

RGI made our dreams come true! And Samantha’s gift of hope….there really aren’t words to express how they changed our lives. We won their grant in 2019 and it has continued to bless us several years later. Every time we make a financial decision I think of SGH and how I don’t know if it’d be possible if it wasn’t for them.
RGI and Samantha’s Gift of Hope has forever changed our lives in the best way possible because they have given us the greatest gift we could ever get—our sweet daughter. We have this joy of being parents we had previously only dreamed about, and honestly weren’t sure we would ever have. Now, everyday is filled with baby giggles and snuggles, cheering her on to her next milestone (which is currently crawling), and trying to be the best parents we can be. We will never be able to repay RGI and Samantha’s Gift of Hope, but we will forever be grateful to them and are daily reminded of it.
RGI made it possible for us to experience the joys of becoming parents. There is no greater feeling or love in this world that we’ve experienced than bringing Liam into this world. We truly understand the miracle and blessings babies are. SGOH we will forever feel grateful for. We cannot thank Lisa, Matt and Sam enough for their generosity and helping couples pay towards their IVF journeys. Honestly, SGOH really does provide HOPE. Winning the grant also helped us to feel like this is really happening, it’s meant to be.
Because of Samantha’s Gift of Hope, our dream of having a child came true. We could focus more on each step of the process and keep a positive attitude through it all instead of constantly worrying about what things cost and how we would make it work. Now, our sweet Tenley girl is 1 week old and I continue to be thankful each day for the opportunity Samantha’s Gift of Hope gave us. We are now living out our favorite roles as mom and dad and are filled with so much love for our little girl!

“A wonderful place! I would highly recommend RGI to anyone who is in the same position as me and my husband.”
“Thank you! Everyone is extremely caring and professional. I wouldn’t go anywhere else!”
“RGI went above and beyond to make my husband and me comfortable and happy with the care they gave us!”
“We had a wonderful experience with the RGI staff during our IVF cycle. All staff were kind, friendly and very informative! We felt comfortable at every visit and each procedure. The staff at RGI are wonderful and made our IVF journey a great experience. We are so thankful!”
