Finding the right team made all the difference

Why do you want to share your story?

FCI truly changed my life.

What led you to Fertility Centers of Illinois?

We were dissatisfied with a previous experience at another fertility clinic and sought out FCI after a recommendation from a friend.

How would you describe your experience with your physician?

Dr. Sipe was light, hopeful and informative. We knew it was a match when we arrived for our first appointment and saw his decorative mug that read “Dr. Sipe at your Cervix”

What helped you get through treatment?

My team kept me well-informed every step of the way which helped us stay grounded in reality about our treatment.

Do you have any words of hope for others?

Because we had other experiences before FCI, we knew what we didn’t want in our treatment team. Finding a good fit is a really important part of this journey because you rely on them to be connected to your life in a very intimate way during a very vulnerable time.

Tell us about your little miracle!

Asha is almost one year old. Of course my fertility journey resulted in a “pandemic baby” (it just makes sense) but she’s the best human we know. She was born with tons of hair and kept all of it, and it was her whole personality for the first six months!
