Preconception Care

Infertility and genetic counseling

We understand how emotionally challenging infertility can be for couples trying to conceive. Either the man or woman may be found to have the root cause. Infertility may occur naturally or, in some cases, due to previously performed sterilization procedures. In every case, those seeking solutions are treated with sensitivity and individual attention.

We offer compassionate care for women with infertility as well as other hormone-related issues. Our physicians and staff use state-of-the-art technology and infertility treatments while also being sensitive to yours and your family’s needs.

We specialize in the following reproductive endocrinology services and technology:

  • An on-site certified lab for semen testing, prep for intrauterine insemination (IUI) and post-coital testing
  • Donor sperm program
  • Evaluation and treatment for male factor issues (with urologic consultation)
  • In vitro fertilization (IVF)
  • Intracytoplasmic sperm injection
  • Laparoscopy and hysteroscopy
  • Treatment of hormonal disorders

Genetic Counseling Services

If you have a family history of a genetic disorder or are otherwise at high risk, Stamford Hospital offers the services of an experienced genetic counselor. We offer educational sessions about the range of available genetic screening. Those who pursue genetic screening can have all testing and follow-up right at the hospital.

Our full-time genetic counselor will lay out all of the available options, to provide as much information as each couple wants, as early as possible. Our goal is to ensure that all decisions made are made based on the best possible information, obtained using the most current techniques.
