Alyssa-Fibroids & Fertility ,

A gem for anyone facing fertility issues

There’s a lot of info online and on social media that’s so misleading and sometimes harmful. When you’re struggling with infertility and pregnancy loss you really need the facts. These docs give just that! As an OBGYN, fibroid specialist who did IVF and surrogacy, this is exactly what I was looking for when we were trying to have our baby. I love listening to expert breakdown what you need to know. Keep sharing your amazing knowledge!
