When Jenn and Jeff Quint attended the annual Kansas City Infertility Awareness conference in April 2015, they met someone who would change their lives – fertility specialist Courtney Marsh, MD, MPH. Dr. Marsh, one of the experts speaking at the event, left an immediate impression.
"Her personality seemed to be consistent with ours," Jenn says.
Dr. Marsh is one of the expert physicians on The University of Kansas Health System's advanced reproductive medicine team. She and other nationally recognized physicians Kristin Holoch, MD, and Michael Lydic, MD, offer the Kansas City region's most comprehensive infertility services.
A few months prior, the Quints had learned of a history of infertility on Jenn's side of the family, so they decided to seek out a specialist. Meeting Dr. Marsh helped them choose The University of Kansas Health System.
The journey to parenthood begins
The Quints scheduled a consultation with Dr. Marsh and her team at their Overland Park clinic location. Following that consultation, the couple felt confident with the recommended treatment plan. Rather than being too aggressive, it was decisive and strategically planned – it was “just right” for them. Jenn was pregnant after the first fertility treatment cycle.
“We thought we had beaten infertility,” Jenn says, “but we were cautiously optimistic.”
Sadly, Jenn miscarried. After taking time to heal, they eventually decided to try in vitro fertilization (IVF).
