Fertility is an explosive issue. With advances in female infertility, we explore this topic and features Dr. Dorothy Mitchell- Leef of Reproductive Biology Associates … all brought to you by HealthGate. Guest host today is Deloris Hartley.
April 21-27th is National Infertility Week in the United States. As more women delay their childbearing years until after the age of 30, when natural fertility starts to fall off, the issue of fertility is a growing issue in American culture. Technology advances in genetics, fertility techniques and testing have provided new tools to help women know their personal fertility status earlier and make plans accordingly to help manage their fertility over time for the best possible outcome. Listen in as local southeast and national fertility expert, Dr. Dorothy Mitchell- Leef, whose practice has helped bring over 30,000 babies into the world in 30 years shares critical information on this topic.
