Family Focus: In Vitro Fertilization

Posted: Updated:

In the past ten years, the number of women receiving medical help to have babies has increased dramatically.

 While having a family is on the minds of many, getting pregnant may sometimes prove difficult. So, some couples choose to look into in vitro fertilization.

 It's been a long journey for Jackie Rosenthal. The Rosenthal's have been trying to make their family grow for quite some time, but they were having challenges along the way.

"When it's you that can't make this happen, you just feel hopeless," says Rosenthal.

 When the natural way didn't work they reached out for medical help.

 "There used to be a lot more unknown about IVF. People didn't really understand it, and there used to be a social stigma with infertility in general. Women didn't talk about it, and a lot of women suffered in silence," Trinity Health OBGYN and Physician Dr. David Amsbury says.

 While Rosenthal might have felt alone while she was going through this journey, 5 to 10 percent of women actually have infertility issues.

 Dr. Amsbury says that the high success rate of IVF is reason enough not to give up.

 As for Rosenthal, she's come out of this process with a miracle or two.

 "Everything we have gone through in the past, I'm so happy to be where we are now. I don't even think about that anymore. I'm just really excited for May and what the future holds," she says.

 With a twin boy and girl on the way her focus is on preparing for the two new additions to her family.

 She says she's glad she asked for help because it made her dreams of having a family come true.
