A little kindness goes a long way! That’s why we recently asked all patients (current and former) to help us pollinate some positivity! We were simply amazed at all the encouraging and motivational messages to fellow infertility warriors that we received! While we shared these anonymous notes with patients in our offices, we also wanted to share a few of them here! You just never know how much a simple “hang in there” from someone else who understands the journey could mean to another when they need it. Check out some of the messages we received below:
You are doing your very best and that’s all anyone can ask of you. Sending you strength and peace!
The best of luck to all those going through RADfertility! Everyone who is a part of this RADfamily whether staff or patient, has a story. Whether you have been trying for 6 months to over 6 years (like my family has), the pain is real and the journey is yours. Take pride in it. Tell others about your struggle, because chances are, someone is going through it and they may feel like they are alone. They are not alone and neither are you.
Don’t forget where you came from and where you are headed. This journey is so tough but so are you! Keep pushing.
You are amazing! This journey has been hard and it probably isn’t what you imagined, but you are stronger than you think and you WILL see amazing things on the other side!
‘The day before your life changes forever will feel like any other day!’
Today may be your last ordinary day.
I bet you didn’t think you could do this or that your body could handle everything it did. The fact you’re going through this journey shows your strength and I pray your dreams come true.
Bee-lieve in the process. Bee-lieve in the people. Bee-lieve in yourself. Bee-lieve in your purpose. The staff at RAD bee-lieves in all of these things for you. They bee-lieve in all your whys. Give yourself grace always. Take the good days with the bad days and stay true to the why!
I pray this finds you well and that during the challenges of all your fertility treatments, you remember to forget all the reasons it won’t work and believe the one reason it will. Prayers and baby dust to you!
This storm will bring the biggest rainbow. You are strong, and you can do this.
Sending you love, strength, and encouragement as you continue on your journey to becoming a mama (or welcome another baby)! You are stronger than you realize and even though the road is tough, I promise the destination is worth it.
One second at a time. One breath at a time. You don’t have to worry about the next hour, the next day, the next week. Your only job is to take care of yourself in that moment. Be kind to yourself. You’re the most important person you know.
Your will to do whatever it takes to have a miracle of your own. It shows how much of a good parent you already are!
One day, your baby, the one that today may seem so far away from existence, will be old enough to hear their story. Hear that they were so wished for and so wanted. That you prayed every night for them to join your family. Imagine them looking up at you and saying, “Thank you for never giving up on me.”
It’s a long journey, but 100% worth it! Know that you are not alone and that there are many others in your local community going through the same struggles as you. Keep your head up!
While it may seem like the journey to parenthood is never ending, just remember that tough times don’t last, tough people do!
We are SO EXCITED to announce that RAD’s 2021 Hope Tracker just reached one of our favorite milestones! 365 RAD babies born, one for every day of the year!
On December 28, 1981, Elizabeth Carr became the very first IVF baby born in the United States and the 15th in the world! It occurred in Norfolk, Virginia with a packed-house delivery room and PBS-documentary film crews ready for this monumental moment 40 years ago.

From fun giveaways to updates on state-of-the-art technology we are using to improve patient success, our blog puts the news in perspective for our patients.
"I feel so lucky to have found RADfertility. I tried two other clinics before I expanded my search and found RADfertility. I drive an hour each way to go to them but I don’t regret a thing. They are so caring and so professional. Every time I message them they respond quickly. Every time I see them they have a friendly smile and warm welcome. They explain everything so well and I never feel lost in the process as I did elsewhere. They also took the time to figure out what was wrong. Other clinics threw up their hands, said 'I don’t know' and pushed me to try IVF."
"Dr. Feinberg and the entire staff at RADfertility are absolutely amazing. The receptionists, coordinators, nurses, and lab staff are compassionate, caring, and straight forward. I’ve had a 12-year infertility journey and I’ve tried other clinics but RADfertility was the only one I felt at ease with. They answered any questions that I had and were there any time I needed them. My coordinator, Amy, was the absolute best and always had my back. Dr. Feinberg’s dedication to his patients is incredible. You are not just a number there, you are a person with individualized needs and care."
"My journey with RADfertility and Dr. McGuirk started when my husband and I were trying to conceive and were having difficulty. We went to RADfertility, where we met Dr. McGuirk. I always say she changed my life and 'fixed' me. Dr. McGuirk is always learning more about endometriosis and how to help her patients. She’s brilliant and truly cares for you! I’m eternally grateful to her and everyone at RADfertility for their unwavering support, love, and care."
"Every step of our journey was tailored to us. We were treated so respectfully. Every detail was clearly explained and we felt so comfortable. Rhonda Wright was a Godsend and inspiring. I highly recommend this place! I cried when my weekly appointments were done and I 'graduated.'"
"The day I met Dr. Neithardt I knew she was the perfect doctor for me. Dr. Neithardt was so compassionate every step of the way. She held my hand, she hugged away tears, and continued to give me hope. There are not enough 'thank you's' in the world for Dr. Neithardt and the whole RADfertility team who will forever have a special place in my heart."
"RADfertility's staff has heart and provided me with exceptional health care. I knew I was in good hands and felt like we were in this together. The doctors and nursing staff always answered all of my questions and provided thorough information about all of my options. I am so fortunate and appreciative of the care that I received at RADfertility. They go above and beyond."
"I cannot begin to explain how wonderful RADfertility is. We were frustrated with trying to start a family and it not working for us. The entire team of doctors and nurses made us feel comfortable and hopeful that we would be parents. We experienced so many ups and downs but we never felt like we were on our IVF journey alone, we had our RADfertility team every step of the way. If you're looking for a supportive team on the IVF journey, look no further. RADfertility is the absolute best."
"Dr. Schillings always kept us informed and never gave up on us. She always explained our options and risks with each procedure. She called us personally when there were any issues or sensitive subjects to cover. Dr. Schillings was the first doctor that had answers for us and wanted to help us have our miracle baby!"
