Shady Grove Fertility, the nation’s largest fertility center, hosted a Baltimore, MD-Metro Family Day earlier this month. Baltimore-Metro-based SGF physicians, Drs. Stephanie Beall, Gilbert Mottla, Joseph Osheroff, Lorna Timmreck, and Ricardo Yazigi, along with many Shady Grove Fertility staff hosted nearly 100 families for a day of fun and celebration at the Maryland Zoo.

“Family Day is such a special day for us. We are there to celebrate the perseverance and strength we see in our patients. They inspire us just as much as they say we inspire them,” shared Dr. Timmreck, of SGF’s Columbia, MD office.

Families lined up with each of the Shady Grove Fertility physicians to have their pictures taken and express their mutual appreciation and gratitude.

“I couldn’t wait to show off my baby to my doctor and team who helped make it happen. They never stopped encouraging me and supporting me. They never let me lose hope. They’ve given our lives new purpose and immeasurable joy,” remarked a former SGF patient who attended the event.

Shady Grove Fertility is encouraging its community in the Baltimore, MD-Metro region and all of its 28 locations throughout Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Georgia, and Washington, D.C., to never underestimate the power of hope, belief, and community.

While this event has passed, SGF would still like to spread the love and inspiration by asking patients to share their story and post photos captured from Family Day to their favorite social community using the hashtag #SGFstrong.

Shady Grove Fertility is hosting various Family Day events throughout the mid-Atlantic this Fall.
