FGUMC Presents Informational Seminar for Potential Parents Facing Infertility

(NEW ORLEANS, LA) Potential parents who may have had difficulties conceiving a child can learn about options available to them on Thursday evening, November 21, at First Grace UMC.  Reproductive endocrinologist Steve N. London, MD, will deliver an educational presentation addressing infertility from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. His presentation will help hopeful parents answer the question, “What can we do now if we want to have a baby?”

Dr. London compassionately provides factual information regarding the latest advances in medical technology for infertility, and during the evening he will cover considerations such as these:
·         What is possible and what is probable?
·         What are the objective data outcomes?
·         How can potential parents budget for infertility procedures?
·         What are our options concerning egg or sperm donors?
·         Should we do this or that?

Dr. London has spent his life in the medical practice of Obstetrics and Gynecology, and through his specialty in infertility and reproductive endocrinology, he has established 4 In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) programs and lectures. Furthermore, he has provided counseling to numerous individuals and couples regarding reproductive concerns. The doctor is also an ordained deacon on staff at Grace Community UMC in Shreveport.   

During the evening, Dr. London will also help potential parents consider the emotional and psychological effects of attempting to conceive a child with medical help:
  1. .      How will the attempt to have a baby or having a baby affect our marital relationship?
  2. .      Why do I want to have a baby?
  3. .      Where am I, where are we with this?

 First Grace is blessed to have Dr. London offer this service to residents of the New Orleans metropolitan area. This event is free and open to the public. Childcare will be provided. Please join the discussion Thursday, November 21, from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m., at 3401 Canal Street.
