Dr. Silber

2 years ago today, I met Dr. Silber. Besides God (obviously), he is the helping hand that made my biggest dream come true!

After tons of research and many friend's opinions, I made an appointment in St. Louis to see Dr. Sherman Silber at the Infertility Center of St. Louis. It's a day that I will never forget! His positive attitude and assurance that I would have a baby is something that I will never forget. I wrote more about him in my blog post about our IVF journey (read HERE).

I get many emails about why I chose this clinic. For me, it was where I felt the most comfortable. Hormones along with fear & anxiety made me a crazy person, so when I went and met with Dr. Silber and his staff and they took all that anxiety away. I knew it didn't matter how far I had to travel because this was where I wanted to be during my In-vitro process.

I was the first to complain about having to travel and it being more "work" to conceive a baby but it really doesn't matter how far, how long or how much money it cost when you feel confident and comfortable with your doctor! I would recommend him to anyone!

This picture was taken on March 12, 2011. I will never forget this day, when these three great men helped me conceive my precious Preslee!

I LOVE Dr. Silber. I just wish that Luke and I could have been able to afford IVF. We would have used his services, no doubt! I'm so glad he was able to help you get your precious Preslee! :)

This is an awesome post! I agree that when having to go through the infertility and IVF process it is important to find Dr.s you are comfortable with and I would travel great distances to to make out dream come true! Luckily we had a research hospital with the most awesome Dr. Nearby and didnt have to travel and along with the hubs and GOD our dream came true as did yours! I travel eight hours away to get in remission and people often ask why travel so far? I reply I go to the best Dr.s who specialize in my disease and they are for certain to get me in remission so I can be around for Kelcee and the hubs so that my friend I would travel ten days for they instantly say true and never ask that again ha! Matt and you look so thrilled! I am glad you opened up and put this post up! I know you have been having a rough time sweet girl! I can't imagine but you do it with such dignity and grace and you are the best mommy! If you ever need to talk please know I'm just an email away! Summer

IVF is such a draining process...it is so great that you had a Dr that you felt comfortable with! We did it as well and thankfully, we had an amazing Dr too.

Julie, My daughter was diagnosed with PCOS at 15. She had my grandson at 25 while on the Pill. she was on antibiotics & the Pill didn't work. Her doctor said many PCOS women get pregnant without any help after going on the Pill. She had been on the Pill for 10 years.

What a blessing. My husband and I are on the infertility journey.. It's so painful. I might have to look into this clinic. I'm from Indiana but do you think they accept out of state patients? I'm dreaming and praying for the day I can write a post like this.

My daughter also had to travel to her doc - AMANDA, we are from Indiana too and she went to Dr. Shelby Cooper in Ft. Wayne. Ended up with triplets! This was 7 years ago so not sure if he is still in practice.

So happy that you have Preslee to light up your days. Hope your family gives you some respite too because this age is so incredibly fun yet draining. They never stop moving!
