Individuals and/or couples find us through referrals from physicians, through individual research or through word-of-mouth. Though we are not doctors, we work alongside doctors in fertility situations and alongside adoption practitioners and agencies in adoption situations.
We have all been through the journey ourselves so we “get it” in ways that others don’t. One of the biggest complaints that people have is that there is no one to talk to. People suffer in isolation and in silence. Relationships then suffer. Our bodies suffer and then they just say “no” regardless of what we do to try to make them work.
We bring the conversation into open to help relieve the burden of carrying this alone. We provide information, decision making support, guidance and referrals. We treat each person as an individual in a unique situation and we customize our services to each person’s needs.
In so doing, we hold your hand, we hold your heart and we hold your future, respectfully, to help you get a child into your life faster, less expensively and with less stress.
