Dr. Schulte is one of the kindest and most compassionate people I've ever met...Being that it was our 2nd miscarriage, she immediately wanted to run an RPL panel, as well as other testing before deciding on a treatment plan. Additionally, she strongly recommended PGT testing due to our prior losses (and knowing one for sure was genetic-related)...the 2nd cycle she recommended a natural transfer. I am now 4w3d pregnant
[STL Fertility is] Clean, organized, everyone is incredibly friendly, easy to get appointments scheduled, their online portal is incredibly user-friendly too! I like that I see pretty much the same people every time I'm there...Sometimes monitoring appointments can be hard just because they do get busy, and you never know what kind of short-notice you're going to have to be monitored...All of the nurses have been wonderful...Due to my age, a single embryo transfer was recommended
How was your experience with Maureen "Moe" Schulte at STL Fertility?
Dr. Schulte is one of the kindest and most compassionate people I've ever met. She has a passion for fertility, and it shows. I feel like I can be completely open and honest with her, and she never ever makes me feel like my thoughts are too crazy. She is thorough and knows how to explain things that make sense to everyday people. I have never felt pressured to do things or complete cycles when I didn't feel like things were perfect. She has absolutely supported our journey and is willing to try anything to make sure her patients get the outcome they desire.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Maureen "Moe" Schulte at STL Fertility?
Be open and honest with her! Let her know your worries, frustrations, concerns, etc. She is very willing to listen to any concerns you have and make sure you both agree on a good treatment plan.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Maureen "Moe" Schulte at STL Fertility?
She knew me and my husband by name. She seems genuinely interested in both of us as people, not just a couple trying to get pregnant.
Describe the protocols Maureen "Moe" Schulte used in your cycles at STL Fertility and their degree of success.
I conceived naturally, but ended up being a miscarriage. While I was not technically "under her care" since the pregnancy was natural, she still allowed us to come in for bloodwork, and even 2 ultrasounds to make sure things were progressing okay. When the miscarriage happened, we immediately got into contact with her to start a plan for IVF. Being that it was our 2nd miscarriage, she immediately wanted to run an RPL panel, as well as other testing before deciding on a treatment plan. Additionally, she strongly recommended PGT testing due to our prior losses (and knowing one for sure was genetic-related). Our first transfer we did a medicated cycle, along with Lovenox and baby asprin. Unfortunately that cycle was unsuccessful, so the 2nd cycle she recommended a natural transfer. I am now 4w3d pregnant from that transfer! I just felt very heard and that she was willing to try something else when things didn't work out the first time.
Describe your experience with your nurse at STL Fertility. (Assigned nurse: Lauren)
All of the nurses have been wonderful, but I've worked more closely with Lauren due to her being my assigned coordinator. She is very friendly, prompt, and knows what she's doing! I can ask any and all of my questions, and if she doesn't already have an answer, she quickly gets one.
Describe your experience with STL Fertility.
Clean, organized, everyone is incredibly friendly, easy to get appointments scheduled, their online portal is incredibly user-friendly too! I like that I see pretty much the same people every time I'm there.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at STL Fertility.
Sometimes monitoring appointments can be hard just because they do get busy, and you never know what kind of short-notice you're going to have to be monitored. It never seemed to matter though; the front office always got me in when I needed to be seen, regardless how booked they were. Once in the office, I've waited anywhere from 5-20 minutes to be seen (depends on how busy it is that day), but it's understandable as some things just take more time than others. I do like that if I'm needing bloodwork done along with an ultrasound, they will have me come do the bloodwork then go back to the waiting room. I like that they're efficient with things like that!
Describe the costs associated with your care under Maureen "Moe" Schulte at STL Fertility.
Thankfully I had Progyny insurance, but the quote we received for an IVF retrieval was $18,500. 1 frozen transfer ran $4,500. An ERA was $1,500. Each IUI we did through them was $1,850.
Describe Maureen "Moe" Schulte's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at STL Fertility.
Due to my age, a single embryo transfer was recommended. STL Fertility seems to utilize single transfers far more frequently unless there is good reason.

Dr Schulte has been through fertility issues herself and that makes it more relatable and personable when a physician can share their experiences with you and truly understand what you are going through, instead of just saying they do. I feel she does care and wants the best outcome for me. The only weakness I have is at times, I do feel a little "rushed" in the room. I feel like I need to have all my questions readily available during the visit or she might be on to the next patient but I know they are busy and I try to have my questions written down and ready before my appts. Otherwise, I feel she is trying to help me build my family and truly cares that we make every effort to help that happen
The [STL Fertility] financial team there has also been helpful too trying to help decide best routes of payment and/or trying different packages they might offer to be most cost efficient for a self pay person. I like the "ease" of getting into their clinic for an appt and the "back door" option to leave through after you might hear results you weren't expecting or were less than favorable. It was nice to exit quickly and quietly as tears ran down my face without seeing other patients. Not being in a hospital and being able to always find parking and get into the building in a timely manner is helpful too. Front desk staff is always welcoming as well.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Maureen "Moe" Schulte at STL Fertility?
They are a busy clinic and will answer any questions you have, but I recommend trying to brainstorm, research or write down any questions you might have prior to your appt to ensure you get to ask them and they get answered.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Maureen "Moe" Schulte at STL Fertility?
I have always felt like a human there. I feel my emotions were always addressed. They know my name when I walk into the clinic. They know I have been through a lot and try to be there for me and help me in this journey
Describe the protocols Maureen "Moe" Schulte used in your cycles at STL Fertility and their degree of success.
We attempted IUI 4 times, planned intercourse once before moving on to IVF. We have had 1 retrieval and 2 unsuccessful transfers with healthy embryos. We tried a fully medicated cycle and then a modified natural cycle with immunotherapy protocols without success. Unsure what we will try next.
Describe your experience with your nurse at STL Fertility. (Assigned nurse: Jamie)
All the nurses and MA's I have had contact with have been very personable and helpful. I am a hard stick with rolling veins and they typically have their "best" draw my blood now. They are quick to respond in email and by phone.
Describe your experience with STL Fertility.
Both Dr Schulte and Dayal are amazing but this review did not ask about the other providers in a clinic such as their NP. Melanie, their NP, is seriously the sweetest person. She is very comforting and provides so much warmth during your visit. She is the one that does all the IUI's so I was mainly only seeing her during the first few months there after my initial consult with the physician. She tries to spread her "good baby dust" after an IUI and truly seems to care and feel for you if it doesn't work. I have cried with her (and the docs) many times and she is always warm and providing a hug when needed. I have never felt rushed with her or Dr Dayal who also asks me how I am doing and sits to talk to me before doing the vaginal ultrasound, etc. I personally love that its an all female clinic. While males are also obviously on this journey as well, it is different to be the woman going through this process with all the medications, testing, hormones, procedures, etc. Having female staff who know what its like getting a period or the anxiety behind taking a pregnancy test or who have been or are trying to become pregnant, etc is helpful to feel that extra comfort. Most of the staff there have been on some fertility journey themselves and its nice not to feel so alone. One thing I do wish the clinic would do is have either the nurse or the provider call with your pregnancy test results. They might call if its positive, I have not experienced that unfortunately, but having the MA call who can't always answer your questions when you hear your "negative" result can be very difficult and leaving you wanting until your next consult to ask your questions. I had my coordinator call me once instead of the MA and it was more comforting to have her call as she could at least provide some "next steps" or possible future plans before your next consult with the physician. The financial team there has also been helpful too trying to help decide best routes of payment and/or trying different packages they might offer to be most cost efficient for a self pay person. I like the "ease" of getting into their clinic for an appt and the "back door" option to leave through after you might hear results you weren't expecting or were less than favorable.

Describe the protocols Maureen "Moe" Schulte used in your cycles at STL Fertility and their degree of success.
Down-reg with Lupron and bcp. Retrieval started with normal doses of Follilism and Menopur, decreased at checks due to follicle growth and bloodwork. Stimmed low and slow to increase chances of getting a good cohort of eggs maturing together, since we could only afford one retrieval.
Describe your experience with your nurse at STL Fertility. (Assigned nurse: Merry Kay)
Merry Kay is a busy professional, but always answers portal messages and returns calls same-day. She can usually share reasons for a change, but sometimes the answer is "just because." If she can't answer and you press for one, she does get Moe to call back to explain. Other nursing staff are nice and able to fill in/answer questions when Merry Kay is not available.

I started IVF [with Dr. Schulte]...I only had one egg, so we canceled retrieval and I did the trigger shot and timed intercourse. No success...I know she prefers a single embryo transfer, I know that in my case if we’d been lucky enough to get two, she’d have done both, but normally she only does one...She took the time to get to know me personally. She treated more like a friend then a patient. She made it seem like we were really in this together...She was candid, yet comforting in advising me on my road to conceiving with and without the use of an egg donor. She spent as much time with me as I needed when any set backs occurred.
I think this clinic [SIRM] is absolutely wonderful and I’d highly recommend them. The only issue I faced was with the financial department. My insurance was covering some of it and it took a long time to get the amount, and then when we were finally told we needed to pay, it was immediate and we almost missed our cycle window because of the delay. It took like 2 weeks for insurance verification. Luckily we didn’t miss the window (not that it mattered), but it was added stress.

Describe the protocols Maureen "Moe" Schulte used in your cycles at STL Fertility and their degree of success.
We did an ultrasound to see my egg quantity (3). I then started birth control. At my next cycle I started IVF drugs (Lupron, Gonal, & Menopur). I went in for a blood test and ultrasound the first week. It didn’t look great and we decided that if we were lucky enough we’d do a fresh vs frozen transfer since they wouldn’t have a lot to test. I continued the drugs for another week. Went back in for blood work and ultrasound. I only had one egg, so we canceled retrieval and I did the trigger shot and timed intercourse. No success. Covid-19 cancelled current treatments, but when we have the money our next step will be using an egg donor.

All I knew was that I had aggressive cancer and we had one shot to have a family genetically...Dr. Moe [Maureen Schulte] took on my case as if we were long-time friends or immediate family members. Absolutely every single interaction was heartfelt, honest and meaningful. During the 10-day hormone injection period, Dr. Moe sent daily text messages of encouragement, support and love. To be honest, I often felt like I was Dr. Moe’s only patient during our egg retrieval because she was genuinely concerned about our health journey. It was extremely obvious that our situation was just as important to her as it was to us. Dr. Moe called to inform us that we had genetically normal embryos waiting for us when I was cancer free. To be Dr. Moe’s first “rescue retrieval” was a gift.
Every single time I walked into the clinic [SIRM St Louis], I felt like the only patient. The level of compassion and care was obvious and much needed...Knowledgeable. Compassionate. Caring. Loving.

They provided me with a level of confidence I lost after I was diagnosed. Every interaction was positive and refreshing... Although booked solid, Andrea opened Dr. Maureen Schulte’s schedule for us to arrive the next day as a “rescue retrieval” case. We drove there in silence. The fear was palpable.

How was your experience with Maureen "Moe" Schulte at STL Fertility?
The entire staff at SIRM was a complete Godsend for my husband and I in 2019. I was diagnosed with stage 3 colorectal cancer at the age of 31. Just 48 hours before, I had been playing with my wiggly and growing nephews with the desire to be a mom. Before my diagnosis, I thought our pregnancy journey would begin just a few months later in summer 2019. Our “normal” life was stripped from us. We met with my radiation oncologist, oncologist and surgeon. For the first time in my life, I felt extremely hopeless when we were informed that I would very likely become infertile from radiation and chemotherapy. Our only option was invitro fertilization (IVF) and then surrogacy. Seeing that I had almost a complete obstruction in my rectum, my healthcare team was hesitant to allow fertility treatment to proceed. However, given my age and my current childless state, I was given the green light with specific instructions that I had three weeks to undergo IVF and then cancer treatment started. Following referral from a close friend, I contacted SIRM the next day. I felt battered, beaten down and extremely fragile. In all honestly, I had an extremely negative attitude and felt powerless to my situation. Andrea McClain answered the phone. From the first interaction, we felt relief. Although booked solid, Andrea opened Dr. Maureen Schulte’s schedule for us to arrive the next day as a “rescue retrieval” case. We drove there in silence. The fear was palpable. We needed a win, however small, that day. Insert Dr. Moe. I arrived at SIRM with little to no hope. I did not understand the IVF process. I had no idea if I was fertile. All I knew was that I had aggressive cancer and we had one shot to have a family genetically. Five hours later, I left SIRM rejuvenated with hope and encouragement that I was being taken care of by the best doctors before cancer treatment started. Dr. Moe took on my case as if we were long-time friends or immediate family members. Absolutely every single interaction was heartfelt, honest and meaningful. During the 10-day hormone injection period, Dr. Moe sent daily text messages of encouragement, support and love. To be honest, I often felt like I was Dr. Moe’s only patient during our egg retrieval because she was genuinely concerned about our health journey. It was extremely obvious that our situation was just as important to her as it was to us. Dr. Moe called to inform us that we had genetically normal embryos waiting for us when I was cancer free. To be Dr. Moe’s first “rescue retrieval” was a gift. When I had little hope and the possibility of having a family felt like it was slipping away, I received encouragement, love and tons of hugs from every single member of the SIRM family. Every individual, from the front desk, to lab technicians, to our administrative gurus and Dr. Moe, made our world seem a little less scary. When I wanted to quit during my six months of chemotherapy, our future family kept me going more times than I can count. We dreamt of our family more in the last six months than ever before. That dream will one day become a reality because of Dr. Moe and her talented team. Dr. Moe is living her calling in life. It is insanely obvious that she fully invests in her patients through her witty and adorable bedside manner, personal touch and follow-up interactions. As a past patient and cancer survivor, I highly recommend SIRM for all your fertility needs. Make the right choice. Choose SIRM today.

[Dr. Schulte] was very thorough and would explain the entire process in a compassionate way. I always knew what to expect when I was in the office. She also knew what was happening in my life out of the office...We started with letrozole and times cycles since I was able to get eggs with it and my husband had great sperm. After some failed attempts we tried one iui to see if that would help. After that we went to Ivf by choice since we wanted a baby sooner than later and was trying before seeing her for about a year. She was fine doing that with the other attempts failing.
The clinic [at STL Fertility] is the most welcoming place. From when you walk in the doors you get greeted by the nicest staff and everyone makes you feel welcomed. The nurses then take you back and explain what to expect. Then the doctor comes and explains even more. I never left with questions...I had two care coordinators. Both were so responsive to messages and always were in top of any questions I had even outside office hours.

After that we went to Ivf by choice since we wanted a baby sooner than later and was trying before seeing her for about a year. She was fine doing that with the other attempts failing.
Describe your experience with your nurse at STL Fertility. (Assigned nurse: Samantha)
I had two care coordinators. Both were so responsive to messages and always were in top of any questions I had even outside office hours.
Describe your experience with STL Fertility.
The clinic is the most welcoming place. From when you walk in the doors you get greeted by the nicest staff and everyone makes you feel welcomed. The nurses then take you back and explain what to expect. Then the doctor comes and explains even more. I never left with questions.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Maureen "Moe" Schulte at STL Fertility.

I had just found out my tubes were blocked...she [Dr Schulte] wanted to do a recanalization to see if we could get them open...They were able to get them open at uterus but couldn’t successfully get them open completely. After the test was over we talk and she told me that IVF would be the route I needed to take to have a child of my own.
[STL Fertility (formerly SIRM St. Louis] was nice and there was a huge parking lot...[Nurse] was very helpful she called and talk to my insurance to make the procedure was covered... if she couldn’t get an appointment she made sure she called me...She apologized to me because we had to keep rescheduling...When you walked in the door you were greeted. I never waited long after my appointment time.
How was your experience with Maureen "Moe" Schulte at STL Fertility?
In all honesty Dr Schulte is an amazing doctor. She was the first fertility specialist I been a patient of. So when meeting her I didn’t know what to expect. I was nervous,scared,angry, and sad that I even had to meet her. That’s because I didn’t understand why I was going through what I was to be young. She made me feel like everything was going to be ok and that she will be there for me. My overall experience was great being in a first timer to infertility.

Describe the protocols Maureen "Moe" Schulte used in your cycles at STL Fertility and their degree of success.
I haven’t had any treatments done only testing. When I came to her I had just found out my tubes were blocked due to me requesting an HSG test from my OB. I showed Dr Schulte my result from the test and she suggested I take another HSG. That’s because there were only 2 images and their wording wasn’t exactly saying their were blocked. So she wanted to make sure they were and if their were blocked she wanted to do a recanalization to see if we could get them open. We did the test over they were initially blocked at the uterus . They were able to get them open at uterus but couldn’t successfully get them open completely. After the test was over we talk and she told me that IVF would be the route I needed to take to have a child of my own.
