Serving the women of Huntsville since Experienced, knowledgeable providers. Women-centered, comprehensive care. What Our Patients Are Saying. I cannot say enough positive things about this practice! We moved to Huntsville during my 28th week of pregnancy and I was incredibly concerned with finding as great of a practice as we had back home.
After my first visit with Dr. Reidy, I was no longer concerned! The entire office staff from the front desk to the nurses were incredibly comforting and answered my many questions. By the end of our pregnancy we had met all the providers in the office and were amazed with how caring they all are. Tiffany, their midwife, is actually the one who delivered our baby and I cannot express how fortunate I feel to have had her there.
Her compassion and knowledge were shown the entire delivery time and during postpartum care. I know I would have been in amazing hands with Dr. Reidy or Dr. Warren as well, and feel incredibly lucky to have had many capable providers available for our delivery.
This will be my practice for any future babies in Huntsville!
I had a fantastic experience with the nurse practitioner, Elizabeth Irby, and the staff at Women4Women. I am an extremely nervous patient at any doctors office, but everyone was so kind and helpful. I was able to talk and address my concerns and really felt heard.
I am very impressed with Dr. Allison Warren!! I believe she truly cares about her patients. Hands down the best medical practice I have ever been to. I am new to Huntsville, and I was lucky enough to stumble upon this practice. I am going through my first pregnancy, and am an anxious patient in general.
I have been met with annoyance by providers in the past due to my anxieties around medical procedures. Every since person I have encountered at this practice, from my midwife, Tiffany, to her nurses, to the phlebotomist have been what every healthcare professional should aspire to be in terms of bedside manner. I have a phobia of getting my blood drawn that I am working through, and I honestly wanted to cry tears of joy when the phlebotomist took my blood because of how compassionate and patient she was with me. I never feel rushed. I look forward for to continuing to work with this team throughout my pregnancy.

You will notice throughout my story, I may use words different than what you are used to hearing. I will not say 1 in 8 "struggle", because that implies that if we fought just a little harder, struggled against it a little longer, we could change the outcome- which is obviously not the case. Infertility is not a "struggle," it is not a "fight," it is a medical problem that unfortunately afflicts many of us. Well-meaning friends and family may say "it will happen when you least expect it," or, "as soon as you stop trying you'll get pregnant. Infertility is not something that can be changed by willpower, it is a medical condition that needs to be treated.
Sometimes the cause of infertility can be pinpointed- I, for example, have one fallopian tube that is closed. But often there is no definitive reason.

The conception of requires the combination of so many things to be perfectly in sync- it is no wonder so many couples cannot conceive! Hormones, endometrial health, ovarian health, egg count and age, and semen- all of this has to be functioning properly at the same time to allow a couple to become pregnant when they want.
I will tell you our story. Thankfully, it has a happy ending. I met my husband, David, when I was 25 and got married at At the time I was an anesthesiology resident at Georgetown University. We did not try for children right away. Working 80 hours a week and having a newborn did not feel feasible or enjoyable to me. And what little time off we did have we enjoyed going out and experiencing DC or traveling as much as we could afford.
Fast forward a few years, I am now 30 and we have decided we want to start our family. Being a physician I knew it could take some time. I was not stressed the first month, or two, but after 6, 7, 8 months… I was both frustrated and concerned. Time seems to slip by when you are counting it in 4 week "cycles" tracking your period and peeing on a stick most mornings. Any couple who has actively tried to get pregnant knows the roller coaster: each month waiting to get the al you're fertile, trying to conceive, hoping it worked, and then: either it does or it doesn't.
And if it doesn't you are deflated but you know that next month- that could be it, that could be the month that it finally works! So you start all over again.
Up and down, up and down. Please know, you are not alone on this roller coaster. Hopefully you have a supportive partner with you on the ride.

But also, there are millions of women out there doing the same thing. If you are open about your experience you will likely find other women close to you that are on the ride with you. I do have a closed tube, but you should be able to get pregnant with just one tube so it is still partially unexplained. We tried fertility medication for a few months before deciding to move on to an infertility clinic.
After conversation with our fertility specialist, Dr. Long, we opted to go forward with IVF using the invocelle.
The invocelle is an awesome little device that allows you to incubate your embryos. After the eggs are fertilized, they are placed in a culture medium in the device and then inserted in the vagina where you incubate them for 5 days.

Our first round we were so hopeful, we fertilized 3 good looking eggs. We went back after 5 days, and none of them had developed into usable embryos. I was not prepared for the level of heartbreak I felt at that moment. It was just a bunch of cells, right? But all of a sudden those 3 potential babies were gone in an instant from a glimpse at a microscope.
And that was hard. My friends and family stepped up in a big way. I got flowers and well wishes and it bolstered us to try again. The second round of IVF worked. Because our daughter, Rose, is now 4 months old and the most awesome part of our lives. She has a big gummy grin and chuckles like an old man and will completely melt your heart. Thankfully, I have had family and friends who were invested in this process with us.
