17 weeks with twins after 6 years of infertility. Thank you Karen Hammond ♥️♥️
Sadie Beth supporting her favorite people 🥰 Liam would be too if his still fit.
You are amazing! Thank you so much for diligently working and fighting hard to help all of dreams come true. You are truly a God send! We love you and the whole staff!
Thank you so much for all you did for us. I couldn’t have been happier with the service y’all provided!
Hey Dr. Karen, I sent you a pm. Can you check it please?
4 years ago today, we did our 3rd and final IUI. Here’s the result today! So thankful for all you did for our journey, and so proud of all you continue to do! We love you!
Oh how grateful we are to AIRM, Dr. Long, and Dr. Hammond! Our A-IVF miracle was born at 37 weeks on July 3rd weighing 5.13 lbs. We are so in love!
I would just like to thank you from the bottom of my heart. When you told me there were no eggs or mature eggs to retrieve I was truly heartbroken but when you hugged me and treated me the way you did it truly helped a lot so thank you. We really do need more Doctors like you and Dr. Long in this world because you both care about your patients and the long hard journeys we must go through.
This awesome lady has had lots of eggs to ICSI over the last few days! One more day of retrievals, then transfers begin on Tuesday!
I’ve been slow in posting, but busy as a bee! Last week I had the honor of Chairing the annual Donor Egg Meeting (the world’s largest medical meeting that focuses on third party reproduction) for the 21st year! Wonderful to share information with colleagues, see old friends, and meet new ones in Charleston, SC.
Dr Hammond, I don't know what to say, you work miracles. We cant thank you enough for everything you have done for us in the last month. We are forever grateful for you and your staff! I am extremely sad that today was our last (maybe 🤷‍♀️😬) visit with you. We are going to miss you so much! We cant wait to share our great (🤞) news with you soon! 💙💙
Thank you for everything today! ❤❤❤ cant wait to see you Thursday!!!

So this popped up in my photo memories today. This photo was taken 15 years ago. A younger me photographed with Dr. Bruno Lunenfeld. In 1961 (the year I was born), he introduced the first gonadotropin medication (Pergonal) for clinical use. So, if you’ve ever taken any gonadotropin medication (Pergonal, Metrodin, Fertinex, Humagon, Repronex, Bravelle, Menopur, Follistim, or Gonal F), you can thank the brilliant man in this photo.

We sure do appreciate all of our hard working team members who will give their all to insure perfection for each of our patients. 💜💜

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

According to the National Cancer Institute, 12.9% of women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime. Early diagnosis leads to better chance of cure. Depending on your history, a screening mammogram should be performed between the ages of 35 and 40, then annual mammograms after age 40.

It’s easy to have a mammogram. I did mine today. It was less than 30 minutes from walking in the door to walking out. Many facilities are offering evening and Saturday appointments this month.

The two week wait is the hardest! As I have been thinking about and praying for every one of our patients, I felt simultaneously felt warmth of the sunshine and heard pouring rain. I ran outside our garage and found instant peace and promise—right outside our garage!

A key factor in having an excellent IVF laboratory is excellent air quality. Eggs, s***m, and embryos are incredibly sensitive to volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the air. If there is any smell or impurities, air quality is compromised. In planning and building our IVF laboratory at Innovative Fertility Specialists, we incorporated state of the art HVAC and air purification systems to have the best quality air possible. During our recent IVF/IVC series, we used a monitor to evaluate our air quality. Proudly, IT IS PERFECT!!!! ZERO percent TVOCs!!! Nobody does it better!
