“Making Babies, Saving Lives” – CPR Day at West Coast Fertility Center

Monday, December 8th, 2014

ivfbaby-west-coast-fertilty-orange-county-cpr-training-photoThis was the theme of West Coast Fertility Center’s CPR training day. Our instructor, Scott, arrived from the American Heart Association to certify the WCFC Staff on the new guidelines for basic CPR during our biennial certification process.

The Staff receive one hour of basic training including some helpful and surprising facts. Did you know that administering CPR is very different in adults, children and infants? It was sad to learn that the most common cause of drowning in infants occurs in a doggie watering bowl. So keep a close eye on your toddler or keep the bowl out of baby’s reach.

Next came the exciting part of working on mannequins to simulate an actual rescue. Everyone was a little nervous wanting to make sure this was performed correctly. We split up into teams of 2 and worked on rescuing 2 mannequins. Norma and Maria were first up and they were experts in a few minutes.

Finally, we were surprised that a multiple choice was the final hurdle. Fortunately, everyone received a passing grade.

We recommend that everyone in your home and work place should know how to correctly perform basic CPR since a disaster can happen at any time. If you wish for additional information, please contact Beth from our office at 714-513-1399 who can provide you the name of our excellent instructor.

How much is IVF In Vitro Fertilization? Compare IVF Pricing in Orange County, California.

Friday, April 18th, 2014

west-coast-fertility-center-orange-county-ivf-cost-photoThe cost of IVF fertility treatment at West Coast Fertility Center (WCFC) is very competitive and probably the most affordable in the greater Orange County, Los Angeles, San Bernardino, and San Diego counties. WCFC has built a reputation for the last 25 years treating infertility with success while providing patients with quality, individualized care and attention. Some of the most difficult fertility cases in the community are referred to WCFC given our reputation for science, research, and solutions.

Unlike some clinics, WCFC do not bait patients with a false low price only for them to discover later that there are many hidden fees and costs making the teaser rate much higher than it really is. For example, some clinics display their IVF pricing and do not include the extra costs for I.V. anesthesia, laboratory fees such as ICSI or Assisted Hatching, OB ultrasound, and embryo/egg freeze. All these factors are important in the IVF process and when these extra fees are added in, the real IVF pricing will cost thousands of dollars more.

West Coast Fertility Center is upfront with IVF pricing. Everything is disclosed and itemized so that you understand what you’re getting for your money. Some fertility clinics operate like a fertility factory mill where customized care can be severely compromised. When quoting IVF pricing, all clinics usually do not include the pricing of fertility pre-testing and fertility medications because everyone’s medical situation is different.

“Baby Insurance” with Egg Freezing

Monday, May 27th, 2013

In early May 2013, the Wall Street Journal featured an article about Egg Freezing written by Sarah Elizabeth Richards. She referred to egg freezing as “baby insurance”. Why I Froze My Eggs (And You Should, Too)

Read Sarah’s story about how she froze her eggs on her 36th birthday and had her first baby at age 42.

sarah-elizabeth-richards-egg-freezing“When a woman freezes her eggs, two things happen: She comes to terms with the fact that her fertility is fading, and she invests significant time, energy and money in protecting that asset by seeking medical help. The combination puts the issue front and center and makes you commit to your goals,” states Richards.

“The act of egg freezing also has the effect of making women feel more in control of their dating lives. Far from encouraging women to wait, I found that egg freezing made it easier for women to relax and find a partner.” -excerpt from WSJ article

Ms. Richards is the author of “Motherhood Rescheduled: The New Frontier of Egg Freezing and the Women Who Tried It.

Happy Easter to you and your family!

What does eggs and rabbits have anything to do with Easter? The Goddess Eostra (dating back to the 13th century) represents springtime and fertility.

Affordable IVF at Last! “Natural Cycle IVF” Available at West Coast Fertility Centers in Orange County, California at Promotional Pricing of $3,900

Thursday, January 31st, 2013

Natural Cycle IVF (NIVF) is an exciting and affordable new fertility treatment offered at West Coast Fertility Centers to patients who have mild forms of infertility. The promotional pricing for NIVF is $3,900 excluding costs for testing and medication.

What is Natural IVF and How Does It Work?
“Natural IVF” (NIVF) can be offered to patients with mild forms of infertility but still need help becoming pregnant. NIVF mimics the natural process by helping the woman’s ovaries produce the natural healthy egg she would produce in her own cycle.

Usually one, but occasionally two eggs are released in natural cycles. With NIVF, the ovaries are assisted to develop the naturally selected one or two follicles and eggs. The follicles are aspirated under I.V. sedation and the harvested eggs are replaced to the uterus 3 days later. Some women may take progesterone capsules to help support the uterine lining. A pregnancy is confirmed two weeks after the transfer.

Orange County Fertility Specialist, David Diaz MD, Perfected a Specialized Egg Freezing Technique Making Frozen Donor Eggs Accessible & Affordable

Thursday, January 31st, 2013

The patent-pending egg freezing technology developed by Frozen Egg Bank and West Coast Fertility Centers located in Orange County, California makes it possible and affordable for intended parents to conveniently select frozen eggs procured from healthy, rigorously screened donor candidates.

The egg freezing technique minimizes ice crystal formation during the egg freezing process and yields a frozen egg survival rate of 91% after thawing. This egg freezing success rate has led to the births of over 70 healthy children and the world’s first frozen egg baby reunion hosted by Dr. David Diaz in October 2011.

Women with diminished fertility potential due to advancing age or poor egg quality may be advised to use “younger eggs” from a donor to improve their chance of pregnancy. The patent-pending egg freezing innovation developed by Frozen Egg Bank and West Coast Fertility Centers dramatically improves the efficiency of the egg donation process thus minimizing the cost of donor egg fertility treatment for the intended parents. F

An egg donor is a healthy young woman who agrees to provide her biological eggs to be inseminated by the sperm of the intended mother’s partner. The resulting embryos are then inserted in the uterus of the intended mother to be carried as her own pregnancy. The child will possess the physical traits of the father and the traits of the donor (chosen because she looks similar to the mother). At birth, the child is considered the biological offspring of the intended mother just like a naturally occurring pregnancy.
