A week of news, news and more news. It's fast and furious at RMACT. You'd think we had a group of people whose jobs were primarily thinking up ways that we could create a better, more comprehensive, compassionate way to support men and women through the trials and tribulations of infertility and fertility treatment.
Actually, we do.
Our latest offering?
We know, absolutely and completely, that it is not only english-speaking men and women who struggle with conception. And so, voila! Here's our website, in Spanish.
Voila, aquí lo tienes, with a lot of work and a decent amount of money and time and effort.
Please help us make it even more worth while. Share it. Spread it around.
Let's make sure that good educational material, reliable information and compassionate support is available to all out there who need it.
For our Spanish-speaking friends, it's a done deal.
Read below for details.
Website About Infertility in Spanish
Norwalk, CT (PRWEB) April 30, 2013, Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut (RMACT) now has an educational website with information about infertility for Spanish-speaking patients at http://www.rmact.com.
Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut (RMACT), Fairfield County’s leading fertility practice and egg donation center, is launching a new website for Spanish-speaking infertility patients. Fairfield County’s Hispanic population, which is about 161,106 people or 17.4% of the County’s total population (925,899), would benefit from a Spanish language fertility center website.
The new website, which can be found by clicking on the Spanish flag at http://www.rmact.com, contains over 100 pages of information about infertility, treatments and even a glossary of infertility terms. Like RMACT’s main website, this website has a section that outlines what new patients can expect during their first visits, including a consultation with a reproductive endocrinologist and diagnostic testing. It also describes a range of treatment options, ranging from non-invasive paths such as nutrition counseling to sophisticated procedures such as in vitro fertilization (IVF) and Comprehensive Chromosome Screening (CCS), or as they known in Spanish, Fecundación in vitro and Cribado pancromosómico.
“For many of our patients, online research is their first step to learning about infertility and to making a plan for starting a family,” says Dr. Mark Leondires, Medical Director of RMACT. “We hope that this website can help Spanish-speaking patients understand their options and help them feel less isolated. It is important for patients to have a firm understanding of their diagnosis and to feel confident in their treatment plan.”
RMACT believes all patients benefit from learning about infertility, treatment options and how their overall health affects their chances of successfully getting pregnant. In addition to written and online materials, RMACT offers seminars, peer support groups, Fertile Yoga classes and teach classes for patients whose treatment includes injections. In 2012, RMACT hosted 32 seminars for patients and the general public with topics that included nutrition, reproductive health, stress management, preconception health and infertility factors for men and women.
