Dear Single Mom to Be,
At Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut (RMACT), one of our goals
is to help patients be informed about fertility and their options for starting or
continuing to build their families. Depending on the patient, this can mean
providing information about nutrition, endocrine conditions such as polycystic
ovarian syndrome (PCOS), surrogacy, or treatments such as in vitro fertilization
(IVF) and SelectCCS (also known as comprehensive chromosome screening).
Our approach to patient education includes personal care from the doctors and
nurses, as well as seminars, workshops, and educational materials. One of our
most important tools have been our websites (www.rmact.com and
www.gayparentstobe.com), which include information about fertility diagnosis,
treatments, and working with a third party for egg donation, sperm donation and
For Single Women at Various Stages of Starting a Family
We are excited to share with you that our next initiative is to launch
www.singlemomstobe.com, which will provide information for single women at
various stages of their journey to starting a family. For women exploring the idea
of having a child, it will be an ideal resource; for women who have taken home
their babies, we hope it will offer a community.
Now it is your turn to help educate us! We would like your help in shaping this
new website and community. Please come to a focus group on Wednesday,
November 6, 2013 at 6 p.m. at our Norwalk location (20 Glover Avenue). We will
preview the new website, and will ask for input about what information single
women want and how we can make this the ultimate resource.
Please let us know if you are able to join us. RSVP to Tally Jacobs
(email@example.com). If you are interested but this date and time do not work,
please let us know.
