Sara Braunschweig's Story

Sara's story begins as a teenager entering college with a message from her father: be confident in yourself; live your life mentally, physically and spiritually balanced; and seek joy. The later message, seek joy, was the resounding piece of advice that has stayed with Sara during the past 17 years. After graduating college and spending years climbing up the corporate ladder and earning good money, Sara realized that all of this meant nothing if she didn't have anyone to share it with. After cultivating a friendship and bond with her co-worker, Michael, it evolved into something more and eventually, marriage. Immediately after marrying, they started to try for a baby. The only catch was that Michael had had a vasectomy at the young age of 26.

Since this was an unacceptable answer to Sara and Michael, they sought the help of the physicians at Reproductive Medicine and Infertility Associates (RMIA) in Woodbury, MN. With the help of the medical team at RMIA, Sara decided to undergo in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment and was prescribed BRAVELLE and MENOPUR and responded beautifully to the medications. After conceiving on the very first transfer, Sara and Michael welcomed their daughter Ella into their family on April 9, 2008. In her essay, Sara speaks of the joy that the birth of Ella has brought her:

"I'm so glad I listened to my dad's advice all those years ago. And with that, I say to all the desperate want-to-be mothers out there -- seek your own joy -- wherever and however that may be. Listen to the depths of you to guide you to where you find that joy. I
