Hear From Our Patients

We are so excited to share some of our success stories with you! We value our patients' success and hope their experiences encourage you to start your journey. 

Thanks to Duke fertility physicians and nurses, we have been blessed with two beautiful babies. With their knowledge, support and high-quality medical care, we were able to beat the odds and get the family we hoped and dreamed of for so long. Going through an unnatural process of IVF can be overwhelming mentally and physically, but the entire staff at the clinic were determined to help us succeed. They cried with us and rejoiced with us all along our journey.

Duke Fertility Center helped us start and grow our family. As a same-sex couple, we knew that we were going to need assistance if we wanted to have children. My wife and I worked with the amazing providers at Duke Fertility Center to complete the IVF process utilizing donor sperm. In 2015, we welcomed our beautiful son. When my son was born, he looked just like my wife, and I was amazed at the magnificence of science.

Duke Fertility Center worked with Emily to develop a treatment plan and carefully explained the process of Intrauterine insemination (IUI). After her second round, Emily discovered that she was expecting. Their daughter, Addison, was born in December, only one day before Emily’s birthday. The new family of three celebrated with birthday cake in their hospital room.
Hearing friends announce a new pregnancy can bring great joy. It also can bring a unique mix of emotions known only, perhaps, to couples struggling to conceive. The Ranneys found hope for their family at Duke.
“There are so many women out there who struggle with infertility,” says Rachel. “I hope that my story will encourage another woman to pull herself up out of her despair and seek out a consultation. You are not alone. There is hope. Little miracles happen at Duke every day.”
