The Fertility Mentor

Let me help you navigate the process.

My husband and I began our quest to have a baby in 2003.

We spent the next six years delving into the abyss called "unexplained infertility." During that time, our journey included:

Acupuncture for infertility

Blood issues


Day 5 transfer / Blastocyst

DES daughter

Ectopic pregnancy / Methyltrexate

Embryo cell insemination

Failed IUI / IVF cycles

Fertility medications (injectibles / oral / suppository / patches)

Fertility therapy

Fibroids (surgery)

Fresh vs. frozen embryos

Gestational Diabetes

Hormone stimulation testing



ICSI (Intracytoplasmic sperm injection)

Immune system issues

Insurance vs. out-of-pocket

IUI (intrauterine insemination)

IVF (in vitro fertilization)

Liver issues


New York State Grant

Ovulation issues / Metformin

Ovulation predictor kits

PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome)

Pregnancy / live birth

Pregnancy testing (understanding the numbers)

IVF procedures (egg retreival / embryo transfer)

"Shared risk" program

Sperm banking

Temperature charting

Testicular cancer (surgery)

Testing (blood / sonogram / genetic)

Thyroid issues


When we approached our 10th and final IVF treatment, we literally put all of our (one) eggs in our basket. My fertility specialist assured me that "you can still get pregnant off one egg," after I questioned whether it was even worth transferring the one. As it turned out, this last embryo -- off to a slow and rocky start -- became our miracle, Melanie Paige (pictured at right).

I am here to say that you don't have to travel this road alone. I wish I had someone to help me navigate the process and help me understand what my options were based on my diagnoses. Let me help you alieviate the burden of finding the information you need to make the best decisions possible for yourself. I am committed to helping you become a parent, however that winds up happening.
