Medically Assisted Reproduction and
Shared Journey Fertility Program
An IVF cycle can be very costly, rigorous and physically tiring. Many times you’ll need to endure more than one IVF cycle to achieve a pregnancy, Therefore, Dr. Mercier developed the Shared Journey Program (see program link for details) so that you are able to help limit your number of cycles. Our therapy protocol is started and finished prior to the stimulation portion of a medically assisted cycle. No work will be done during stim because it could disrupt the process and over stimulate the ovaries causing your cycle to be cancelled. Therefore, making your appointment well in advance of your cycle start is advised. If time is limited than we can wrap up the Shared Journey program within a 3-4 day weekend.
Our goal is to help you physically and emotionally so you will enter your cycle with healthy pelvic organs and a healthy mind. Meredith will help you create a healthy environment within your pelvis to promote a successful first IVF cycle.
You are encouraged to become educated, explore and better understand your own body’s rhythms prior to going through an IVF cycle. The Shared Journey program will help you recognize natural signs of fertility. Building a solid foundation is a healthy non-invasive solution to many fertility problems.
