2018 National Infertility Awareness Week Events

Join us for our free National Infertility Awareness Week events. Pre-registration is requested.

Free Fertility Assessment/AMH Event (Saturday, April 21st, 10 am – 2 PM)  This program is now full.

This Free Fertility Assessment is intended to help women better understand where they are on the curve and better understand the options available to them. Participants will complete a brief questionnaire about their gynecological, obstetrical, fertility and medical history and undergo a blood draw for an Anti Mullerian Hormone (AMH) test. AMH testing is considered to be a strong indicator of fertility potential. Once the result of the AMH blood tests are received (about 2 weeks) The Center will follow up with participants with a scheduled fifteen minute (15) phone call from a member of The Center’s clinical team to discuss the questionnaire and AMH results. All this will be free of charge.

Time Out! Couples Session (Saturday, April 21st, 5-7 PM)  This program is full.

The journey towards becoming parents can be challenging and at times stressful. With all the doctors’ appointments, testing, etc. it can be difficult to focus on each other, as a couple during this time. The Center for Advanced Reproductive Services is happy to provide couples with a really special, fun time to focus on just the two of you! This is a chance to put everything else aside for a couple of hours and connect with one another.  The session will focus on breathing, touch, guided meditation and simple yoga.
