I will eternally be grateful for all that Dr. James did to help me achieve my dream of having my precious baby. I am a single woman who decided to have a baby on her own, which makes the process even more stressful. I had been with another clinic in town undergoing fertility treatments for many months and was never satisfied with the care I was receiving. I didn’t feel connected to my doctor or the nurses and kept thinking that for such an emotional, expensive and arduous journey, I should feel less like a number and more like someone really cared if I became pregnant or not.
I found a comment online about Dr. James and how caring she was and made a consult appointment. From the first meeting, I (finally) felt like I had a true partner in my quest to become pregnant! Dr. James really cared about helping me to become pregnant and I know she put a lot of thought and energy into my procedures. My attempts were not immediately successful and I felt like Dr. James shared in my frustration and sadness, and this gave me comfort. I felt she was really invested in making it happen for me.
When I became pregnant she shared in my joy and I could tell she was truly happy for me! I thought to myself many times how much easier the process was because she seemed to really understand my stress and frustration. It was incredibly different from my first clinic, where I felt like they barely remembered my name after months and months of procedures. I vividly remember the day in my pregnancy that Dr. James told me that it was time release me to the care of an OB GYN..I had ‘graduated!’ It was an emotional moment for me and a bit scary. I cried because I didn’t want to leave the comfort of her care.
