A Woman’s Caring Approach to Infertility Care Makes a Difference

The first step to infertility is scheduling an initial consult, which can be intimidating. How do you know your fertility specialist will be a good fit? Tamara Sweatman, who struggled to start a family, was faced with this tough decision. She states, “We were at the point of giving up. Then we went to Dr. Singleton and The Fertility Center of Charleston.” There are many factors to consider when choosing a reproductive endocrinologist, including board certification, experience, shared patient experiences, and the physician’s approach to the patient and treatment. For Sweatman, her choice to go to The Fertility Center of Charleston to receive an evaluation from a female reproductive endocrinologist, proved to be the right one, “It was awesome right from the start, everyone was so encouraging.” Tamara states, “I felt more comfortable with the sympathetic ear of a woman versus just a clinical setting.”

The Fertility Center of Charleston, Dr. Stephanie Singleton and her staff compassionately guide each patient to parenthood using the latest advanced reproductive technologies including IVF. Like Tamara Sweatman, each woman’s journey to parenthood begins with a fertility evaluation. Sweatman states, “I would tell other women experiencing infertility not to wait and not to give up.”

“Dr. Singleton said, ‘We can fix this.’ That sealed the deal. I felt welcomed and understood, and appreciated that it was not just a clinical approach.”

Another factor in Sweatman’s decision to trust The Fertility Center of Charleston was Dr. Stephanie Singleton’s extensive experience. Dr. Singleton, FACOG is board certified in both reproductive endocrinology and infertility and in obstetrics and gynecology. She specializes in invitro fertilization therapy, polycystic ovarian syndrome, amenorrhea, and male factor infertility. Sweatman appreciated that she was treated not just as a number in a medical practice, but as a patient with feelings, hopes and fears. She explains, “I felt like I was meant to be a mom, and they understood that.”

And today, a mom is exactly what Tamara Sweatman is, thanks to The Fertility Center of Charleston and Dr. Stephanie Singleton. She explains, “There isn’t a day in the past 2 1/2 years that has not been amazing. My daughter makes every day absolutely better, thanks to The Fertility Center of Charleston.” The Fertility Center of Charleston has locations in Mt. Pleasant & Savannah.
