"I really enjoyed being a patient of Westchester Reproductive Medicine..."

I am very happy to say that I really enjoyed being a patient at Westchester Reproductive Medicine. I was referred to Doctor Bennett by a girlfriend who had trouble conceiving her second child and then, of course, was finally successful. I had been through fertility treatments before so I wasn't too nervous. I was just hoping that I would feel comfortable and receive the best care.

After meeting Doctor Bennett, she put me at ease since she has a very warm demeanor and is very soft spoken. She immediately wanted to know my history and we decided as a "team" to remove a cyst that I had on one of my ovaries, just so I could start with a clean slate. The surgery went well and then after I healed, we began IVF treatments. The first one worked, but it was more like a chemical pregnancy since it only lasted two days. I was upset, but we just said to each other that maybe it wasn't the right time, we will get better eggs next time.

I then decided to give my body a break and we just did IUI. I knew the chances were less but I wasn't just ready to do IVF again. We tried and it failed. After that, I clearly remember Doctor Bennett saying to me firmly, "You will get pregnant! Hang in there. There is nothing wrong with you or your husband. It will happen. Just try to be patient!" With that sternness in her voice, I knew she was serious and would really take me under her wing.

We did IVF again on November 10 and I had twenty eggs removed. They were all gorgeous. I was even able to freeze three of them. Soon after the day before Thanksgiving, I found out it worked and Doctor Bennett said, "These numbers are really high!" Sure enough, after my 9-week sonogram, she confirmed that I am having twins. WOW! Talk about double the blessing. I had my last appointment with Doctor Bennett this a.m. and now am off to see my regular OB/GYN. I am truly grateful for her knowledge and believing it would work for me. My husband and I are so excited to be parents again (we have a 3 ½ year old) after trying for so long. I wish everyone out there the best of luck and to always keep moving forward if it doesn't work the first time. You will be in good hands with Doctor Bennett and her staff at Westchester Reproductive Medicine!
