Describe your experience with St. Gianna Clinic.
This clinic will do all that they can to help you get pregnant, short of IVF. It is a catholic based clinic, but you do not need to be catholic to be seen there and there is no religious pressure. They are all about preserving and improving a woman's fertility and are on the cutting edge of surgery techniques, blood work testing and truly want to help women get pregnant. If you are looking into IVF, I would recommend going here first to clear up all of the issues that your body might have. Working with this clinic has helped me to be healthier and if I need to go to IVF, I know that my body is in a much better place than it was before I went to this clinic.

How was your experience with Melissa Weidert at St. Gianna Clinic?
She is always up on current trends and research. She is open and honest about her thoughts and opinions. I truly feel she wants what is best for me. The reason my treatment has taken so long is because of my schedule and my choices. She would like to move more quickly on things, but I am a new teacher and my job is stressful so I have been taking things slowly. But she is 100% supportive and always suggesting what is in my best interest.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Melissa Weidert at St. Gianna Clinic?
Be sure to start your Creighton Model Charting before you have an appointment with her. Make sure you set up your appointment right away, when you start charting, she is a busy doctor and if you wait to set up your appointment until you have 3 months of charts done, you may not see her until a month or two later.
