Review for FEMINIST WOMENS HEALTH CENTER INC, Atlanta, GA, USA
The people at Feminist Women's Health Center are some of the kindest, most talented people I have ever encountered. To sum up my story in a nutshell, I found myself a year past 40, newly single, and wanting to start a family. My gynecologist recommended I contact FWHC to start my journey for insemination. I contacted Gail Panacci who heads up reproductive services and made an appointment to see her. I wasn't sure what to expect as a single woman wanting to have a baby. Well let me tell you, Gail is the one of the warmest, knowledgeable people I have ever met in my life. She immediately made me feel comfortable as I decided to enter my journey to have a child. From initial health screenings to information on sperm banks, Gail gave me the tools I needed to move forward with this important decision. It took some time for me, personally, to be physically ready to try to conceive. I had to undergo a D&C, went for acupuncture, and charted my cycles for nearly 6 months before I could go through the actual insemination. Gail was there for me at all times. She provided valuable information and much needed emotional support throughout the process. I was able to try two times before, unfortunately, losing my job. Even though I was unsuccessful in getting pregnant, I would recommend Gail and the FWHC to anyone needing services (controversial, unconventional and traditional). If I decide to try to get pregnant again, I will certainly start with FWHC.
