Advanced care helps couple realize a dream
Jennifer and Susan knew they wanted to build a future together and quickly realized children were an important part of that dream.
"We talked extensively about our fears and hopes," Jennifer says. "I was certain that if we weren’t on the same page, it would come back to haunt me when our then-theoretical child made a ‘poo-casso’ painting on his bedroom door."
Soon after Susan proposed to Jennifer on Memorial Day weekend of 2012, they called the fertility specialists at The University of Kansas Health System. They planned to marry the following spring and wanted to start trying to get pregnant as soon as possible.
Though Jennifer and Susan felt nervous sitting in the waiting room before their first consultation, their anxiety was quickly alleviated.
"Once in the office, we met and instantly loved the incomparable Judy Gay, RN,” Jennifer relates."She made us feel valid and deserving of our dream to have a family.”
