Sacramento Infertility Specialists Celebrate Conception, Pregnancy and Babies at Family Reunion BBQ

The Sacramento infertility specialists and staff at California IVF: Davis Fertility Center, hosted a family reunion BBQ on October 17th to celebrate “overcoming infertility”.

Former fertility patients who are now pregnant or have successfully delivered babies were invited to bring their families to the annual event. Most of 100 plus children who attended the were conceived using treatments offered by California IVF such as in vitro fertilization (IVF), artificial insemination (IUI), egg donors, embryo adoption or tubal reversal surgery.

California IVF Director Dr. Ernest Zeringue says, "Seeing patients overcome infertility and get pregnant is one of the top reasons for choosing to become a fertility specialist. Most local fertility centers do not get the chance to see patients after a positive pregnancy test and hearing a baby’s heartbeat on the ultrasound. We like to meet the children who help bring into the world and see the joy a baby brings to our former infertility patients.”

Nobel Prize for IVF Pioneer Highlights How Far Local Fertility Clinics Have Come in Helping Patients Get Pregnant

As a Sacramento area fertility doctor who regularly helps patients struggling with infertility get pregnant with the help of in vitro fertilization (IVF), Dr. Zeringue said. "Dr. Robert Edwards' win of the 2010 Nobel Prize in Medicine highlights just how far advanced reproductive therapy has come since the first succesful IVF, "test tube" baby was born in 1978".

Because of his work, the once revoluntionary and seemingly impossible task of fertilizing eggs outside of the womb is now commonplace at fertility centers across the country and around the world.

However, even as reproductive technology moves into new and exciting areas like the pre-implantation genetic screening of embryos (PGS), we will more than likely never get to look completely "under the hood" or know exactly why some people's eggs and sperm just don't seem to work. In many ways, this lack of knowing is what binds fertility experts with couples struggling to get pregnant.

Everyone is looking for a "glimpse behind the curtain" to find out why the magic and mystery of conception and child birth seems evasive to some potential parents. It is this basic human link between cutting edge fertility science and a woman's need to have a child that will drive the newest innovations in reproductive technology.

As Dr. Edward's probably knows, the latest technological advances may never compete with seeing the joy patients feel when they are finally pregnant and on their way to having a baby.
