 West Coast Fertility Centers is happy to share another one of our most recent success stories. This couple first came to us in 2008, hoping that Dr. Diaz could help them get pregnant. After one failed fresh IVF cycle they were offered the option to thaw the majority of their embryos and have them cultured to the blastocyst stage. A blastocyst culture allows the embryos to develop for a total of five days before transferring the embryos to the uterus. This allows the embryologists to observe and select the healthiest embryos that are most likely to develop into blastocysyts. Our patient received progesterone medication and two weeks following the embryo transfer, the couple found out that they were pregnant! 

 On March 18, 2010 the couple returned for their first OB-Ultrasound which looks for the presence of a gestational sac and a heartbeat. They were thrilled to see not only one little heart beat, but two little hearts beating. The happy couple was very excited about the news of their twin pregnancy. During their visit they gave our staff a beautiful Phalaenopsis Orchid with a card that read:

“To Dr. Diaz and Staff, We are so grateful to you on finishing our family. Even during these tough weeks you have made us feel so secure. Thank you for everything you and your staff have done for us.”  

Dr. David Diaz and West Coast Fertility Centers extend our warmest wishes and appreciation to the proud couple for their thoughtful gift and kind words to our staff. We wish you the best on your new and long awaited journey of parenthood!

The beautiful orchid sent by the happy couple to our office as a sign of gratitude for their achieved pregnancy.
Thank you for your thoughtful gift, we wish you the best!
Dr. Diaz and the Staff at West Coast Fertility Centers.
