About Women & Infants’ Fertility Center
Women & Infants’ Fertility Center is a full-service reproductive endocrinology and fertility clinic located in the heart of Providence, Rhode Island. Our experts have an international reputation for excellence, with more than 10 decades of combined experience dealing with complex fertility issues.
We are a teaching affiliate of The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University, and our fertility doctors are actively involved in academic research. This ensures that our patients are receiving the latest, evidence-based treatments.
Our affiliation with Women & Infants Hospital, one of the nation’s leading specialty hospitals for women and newborns, gives our patients seamless coordination of care. From fertility treatment, gynecologic care, social services and support groups to giving birth, it’s all on one campus right here in Providence.
We offer a full range of services to help couples and individuals, including our many LGBT patients, get pregnant and have a baby. The evaluations and treatments we provide include:
- In vitro fertilization (IVF).
- Egg and embryo transfer.
- Fertility preservation.
- LGBT family planning.
- Male infertility.
- Tubal damage.
- Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
- Recurrent miscarriages/pregnancy loss.
- Uterine fibroids, polyps and abnormalities.
- Ectopic pregnancy.
- Menopausal symptoms.
The Women & Infants’ Fertility Center boasts the only IVF lab in the state of Rhode Island. The lab started as a small room in the Women & Infants Hospital basement 30 years ago. It’s since evolved into a comprehensive, state-of-the-art facility, allowing Rhode Island residents to receive the best available treatment close to home.
Our success stems from a sincere and passionate commitment to assist both men and women in building a family, no matter their fertility challenges or sexual orientation. We focus on utilizing the least invasive techniques first before resorting to more complex and costly interventions.
Our approach is based on many years of experience in the field of reproductive medicine and tailoring treatment to each patient. We treat each couple and person based on his or her individual needs.
Many fertility clinics will decline to perform IVF if a woman’s case is particularly complex, or if she has certain risk factors that lower her odds of success such as obesity or advanced maternal age. This is because clinics are required to publish their IVF success rates, and offering such patients the chance to be parents might lower their overall success rates.
While we do advise against IVF in certain circumstances, we do everything within our power to treat a patient who has a chance of IVF success, even if that chance is not particularly high. While we are proud of our IVF success rates, we do not define success by numbers, but by the hope we instill in our patients. That is our driving priority.
