How was your experience with Eden Rauch at RMA of New Jersey?
She was professional, I just felt like she didn’t care that much if I actually got pregnant. She told me she was “really surprised,” when she heard I got pregnant via ivf. I ended up having a miscarriage and she never reached out after that.

It was the whole team that came up with the protocol, not just her. It was a short protocol, I stimmed for 9 days before the egg retrieval. I got 17 eggs, 10 fertilized, only two made it to day 5, transferred two, got pregnant with one, ended in 6.5 week miscarriage
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
They were professional.
Describe your experience with RMA of New Jersey.
I didn’t like that I constantly saw different doctors. I know they are a team, but I saw one dr for a practice embryo transfer, and she didn’t even do the actual transfer. Out of the several doctors I saw, they were all professional but I can’t say I loved any of them. None were overly compassionate and a few actually said some insensitive things to me after a miscarriage such as, “it worked once, it’ll work again,” as if my loss wasn’t that big of a deal. I think they do care about patients but at times it felt more about the money we had to give. I know the practice has since combined with another so it may be different now.
