A Couple’s Journey to the HRC Fertility Baby Reunion

It took four years and multiple treatment cycles, but this November Yuli Reisner and her husband Derek will finally get their chance to attend HRC Fertility’s Baby Reunion picnic.

Like many patients, their road to parenthood was longer than they had anticipated, as well as very emotionally challenging. On her last IVF attempt, Yuli and her husband achieved their miracle: a successful pregnancy and birth of their precious son Sasha. They will proudly bring Sasha to the reunion, a fun event and rite of passage for many HRC patients, who long to show their bundle of joy to the doctors and staff who made their dreams possible.

The couple had been trying to create their family for four years, starting when they were in their mid 30s. Yuli’s OBGYN, a former patient of Dr. Robert Boostanfar, referred her to him. Yuli already had experienced an ectopic pregnancy after one of two unsuccessful intrauterine inseminations at another clinic.

After Dr. Boostanfar ran diagnostic tests, he discovered Yuli had immunologic issues and started her on a blood thinning medication and prednisone. The couple underwent several IVF cycles, one of which resulted in a miscarriage of a twin pregnancy.

Those were trying times for the couple. However, on their final try, Yuli became pregnant with Sasha. Dr. Boostanfar prescribed progesterone injections to ensure her pregnancy would work. For the first time, Yuli was able to carry a pregnancy to full-term.

Yuli admitted how hard the experience was to endure emotionally: “I was ready to give up several times. However, my mother-in-law and husband encouraged me to try again. Those pep talks motivated me to persevere and become my own best advocate.”

The new mom was also very impressed by the responsiveness of the nurses and other staff members. She felt they were always available to answer her questions. Recalled Yuli: “I felt very cared for both medically and emotionally. HRC Fertility’s state-of-the-art lab is extremely impressive and Dr. Boostanfar is the master of the embryo transfer. Emotionally, they always supported us through our trials and tribulations.”

Yuli continued: “We are so grateful to our HRC Fertility family and are looking forward to seeing the entire team at the picnic. They are a group of compassionate people who understand and truly care about what you’re experiencing. I highly recommend Dr. Boostanfar and HRC to any couple having trouble conceiving.”
