“I picked Dr. Purdy because I had learned that she did IVF herself so I knew she knew the struggles of going though something to hard and challenging like IVF.”
— Teona, Kindbody IVF Patient
“My husband and I got married in 2018 while he was still in the military, we started trying for a baby back in 2017 since we’re engaged and didn’t plan on having a wedding because of possible deployments etc. I knew almost instantly something was wrong and reached out for help and just wasn’t able to find the right OBGYN that was willing to help me figure out what was going on and why I wasn’t getting pregnant.
We ended up doing some cycles with Clomid and letrozole since we found out I have PCOS and I wasn’t ovulating. I ended up getting pregnant 3 times on those but unfortunately miscarried each time. After the third miscarriage in December 2021 I finally jumped the gun and made a consult appointment with Dr. Purdy.”
Thoughts on Dr. Purdy
“I picked Dr. Purdy because I seen she did IVF herself so I knew she knew the struggles of going though something to hard and challenging like IVF. She has been the only doctor that has never made me feel less than or ridiculous for asking certain questions and that’s what I love about her, she was exactly what me and my husband needed after years of not having good care.”
Our Treatment Path
“We did our egg retrieval in April of 2022 and got 52 eggs! We were absolutely over the moon, That’s when I knew in my heart I would be a mama. Finally at the end of the cycle we ended up with 14 embryos and they were going to be sent off to get pgt tested. Our results came in and we had 7 perfect embryos and we transferred our best female embryo and ended up with our sweet baby girl.”
