Philadelphia, PA – Shady Grove Fertility (SGF) invites those considering fertility treatment to attend The Modern Family special event, featuring reproductive endocrinologist Brianna Schumacher, M.D., on March 5, 2020, in Philadelphia, PA.

Hosted by Vaysman Legal, The Modern Family will feature expert panelists discussing topics including egg freezing, donor egg, donor embryo, IVF, family law, LGTBQ family building, and how to access benefits in the workplace. Admission is $20-25.

For people considering egg donation, SGF is home to the largest donor egg program in the nation and one of only a few centers in the United States that recruits, selects, and prescreens (medically, psychologically, and genetically) its own ready-to-cycle egg donors prior to making them available on their de-identified donor registry. Further, SGF offers an exclusive 100% refund guarantee program for IVF or donor egg treatment—a significant differentiator among other programs.

For people considering embryo donation, SGF’s Donor Embryo Program offers a unique, cost effective, and reliable opportunity to experience the joy of pregnancy and gift of having a child. By using a donated embryo(s) from either a known (direct) donor or an unidentified donor—another patient at SGF who had excess embryos following their own IVF treatment—women and couples who might not otherwise have been able, are experiencing pregnancy, childbirth, and parenthood.

At SGF, embryo donor recipients receive medical history, physical characteristics, and information about their donor’s family, including their children and health history. In some cases, pictures of both the male and female donors as children are provided.

Dr. Schumacher will also discuss the many ways SGF is dedicated to helping gay, lesbian, and transgender people and couples realize their dream of parenthood. SGF offers a full range of services, from low tech to highly advanced, and applies the latest in assisted reproductive technology (ART) to help individuals and couples achieve successful outcomes. At SGF, there are fertility options for every type of lifestyle and partnership.

SGF’s Dr. Schumacher, earned her medical degree from the Medical College of Wisconsin. She completed her residency in obstetrics and gynecology from the University of Massachusetts Medical School. Dr. Schumacher then went on to complete a fellowship in reproductive endocrinology and infertility and a master’s in clinical research at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.

“Fertility treatment has advanced so rapidly in the last 10 years, providing more options and better success rates for those who have been trying to conceive or those who need assistance to build their family,” shares Dr. Schumacher. “I encourage patients who are considering fertility treatment to educate themselves on all of their family building options.”

Dr. Schumacher is available for new patient and second opinion consultations at Shady Grove Fertility’s offices in Chesterbrook and Center City.
