Our success story today is Bobi, who was diagnosed with unexplained infertility at first, and then later with stage four endometriosis. While Bobi lived in Florida, she underwent IUI, a laparoscopy, and then moved on to IVF. There were two embryos transferred, but Bobi went into early labor and delivered both girls at just 24 weeks.
Sadly, baby Emily had many difficulties that she could not overcome; she passed away after 11 days. Bobi, even though grieving, spent the next 125 days with Riley in the NICU. Riley is now a thriving two-year-old!
Bobi and her family recently moved to Illinois and began trying to have another baby. She is now a patient under the care of our friend, Dr. Allison Rodgers. After just one IVF, and the transfer of one embryo this time, Bobi happily reports she is pregnant again!

Whom We’re Following:
Welcome back to Nikol, who told her story in our third episode. When we last checked in with Nikol, she had undergone her third failed IVF and was seeking a second opinion. It turns out that her wonderfully supportive husband did research to find the best clinics with the highest success rates across the country. Nikol has chosen a clinic in Denver, CO, even though it’s far away from her home.
When she first went to Denver, she had a scare when a mammogram showed abnormal results. The resulting biopsy showed a benign tumor, but Nikol now recommends to all IVF patients that they have a mammogram before pumping their bodies full of the necessary hormones for IVF.
