RMACT Program Includes Dedicated Medical Team and SingleMomsToBe.com for Single Women Interested in Becoming Moms
Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut (RMACT), Fairfield County’s leading fertility center, is launching Single Moms To Be, a program designed to meet the needs of women interested in becoming single moms by choice. The program includes dedicating a team with experience helping single female patients. In addition, the fertility practice has developed SingleMomsToBe.com, an online resource and community.
“During the past 15 years, my team and I have worked with many single women who have chosen to start their families on their terms, on their own,” says Spencer Richlin, MD, a Board certified reproductive endocrinologist who leads the RMACT team. “Each of these women has been an inspiration to me, and we hope that this new program and website will inspire other women to pursue their dreams of becoming a mom.”
SingleMomsToBe.com provides information for women at three stages of becoming a mom:
1. At the onset, when women need to know how to physically and mentally prepare themselves for motherhood and fertility treatment.
2. During treatment, when questions arise about treatment options for single women and how to attain donor sperm.
3. After the baby comes home, when new moms benefit from a community of single moms by choice.
The website will include a unique “Moms to Moms” page where readers can submit their questions for an experienced single mom to answer, which is launching in Summer 2014. These ambassador moms will provide a priceless perspective about the realities of single motherhood, including going through treatment for single women, finding a sperm donor, navigating the financials, finding childcare – and of course the joy of having a child.
