Our Last Try
My husband and I had been trying to conceive for nearly 2 years prior to our IVF cycle at RMIA. We had completed several medicated timed and IUI cycles with another clinic, all of which were unsuccessful. We had no explanation for our infertility and were looking at a childless future. From the moment we started working with RMIA, we felt we were in excellent hands. Dr. Stassart has such an expansive knowledge of all things IVF and he spent over an hour going through what was to happen, what medications did what, their history, etc. We did most things at the Edina clinic, but the retrieval and transfer in Woodbury. Everyone we came into contact with at both locations was so kind and encouraging. My main nurse, Melissa, and my main phlebotomist felt like good friends. I sobbed uncontrollably the day that Melissa called to tell me I was finally pregnant. And now I have the most beautiful and healthy baby girl!

Dr. Stassart’s words brought us back
We originally came to Dr. Stassart for a fresh cycle, which was unsuccessful due to factors that were largely known to us beforehand. He was always very forthright, a trait we really appreciated. He told us at that time that if we would commit to 3 cycles with donor eggs, he would get me pregnant. Fast forward 5 years and here we are; pregnant with twins following one fresh donor cycle. Dr. Stassart said he could do it and he (and the staff; nurses, embryologists) did! Our only regret is that we waited so long to pursue this avenue. Thank you, RMIA!

Miracle and Blessing
Having the odds against us with my husband having a vasectomy and two reversals, we came to RMIA hopeful but also unsure. Every single person there we came in contact with…nurses, doctors and even the front desk were absolutely wonderful. We had our highs only to be cut short with lows but each and everyone there respected us and I can say I never walked out (even on the worst days there) feeling like giving up hope. It’s a tough process and the staff there realize this! They gave me the energy to keep fighting. Fighting we did and we now have a healthy, energetic 2 year old little guy. He’s our miracle and he’s our blessing and it is because of the staff at RMIA I can say this. I would recommend this clinic to absolutely anyone because for people like us (the ones who struggle) this clinic gives hope and can make miracles happen!! Thank you is what I can and will say but know it will never ever truly reflect how truly happy and blessed you made us. Our dream came true and it is because of the dedication that RMIA provides!!

Hopeless turned Elated
Five years I had been off of any type of birth control and only had one child; but we were trying for more. It was then that I finally accepted that we couldn’t do this on our own, we needed fertility help. I figured I was maybe “trying too hard” or just one of those “unlucky women” who can’t easily get pregnant. I was consumed with despair, fear, anger, and severe grief that I was a failure as a women…I couldn’t get pregnant. Then a friend of mine, who has 3 different aged IVF children, recommended I make an appointment with her fertility doctor. When my husband and I met with Dr. Stassart I immediately felt overwhelming sense of hope and relief . He diagnosed my infertility problem instantly, his gentle & soft spoken demeanor was comforting. Dr. Stassart’s level of fertility knowledge is astonishing. I’ll never forget the day he told us we were successfully pregnant, I cried. I couldn’t believe it. Our years of agony struggling with infertility was over. Dr. Stassart got us pregnant with one IVF cycle using our own egg & sperm. I truly love this man. He started our daughters life and gently placed her back in my care to grow in my belly for 9 more months. She had been waiting patiently to arrive in this world, thanks to Dr. Stassart and his team at RMIA our life was now complete. I don’t even know how to begin to thank someone for that….

Thanks to RMIA, we now have two beautiful children. RMIA is simply amazing in every way. The staff is exceptional and they make you feel like a person and not a number, which is so important in the long process of infertility treatment. Dr. Stassart is the best doctor I’ve had – not only an expert in his field but very nice, warm and easy to talk to. He always made us feel like he had all the time in the world for us. We’ll be forever grateful to the entire RMIA staff for helping us become parents!

Miracles Do Come True!
We cannot thank Dr. Stassert and his wonderful team at RMIA enough! From the very beginning, they made us feel like their #1 priority. After 2 failed rounds of IVF, they were still behind us 100%. We were blessed with our beautiful baby girl on our third and final round. Miracles do come true! Thank you to the moon and back RMIA!

From the very beginning I felt like a priority not just a number and that you really wanted to help us and make this happen! The warranty program was the biggest thing for us! It took off so much stress off of us that I think it helped get us to where we are now! The staff from beginning to end were amazing and so caring!!! We drove 4 hours even though there is a fertility clinic in our town we wish we would have found out sooner about your clinic!

The most positive experience at RMIA was the genuine level of care from the nurses and Dr. Leonard. I will never forget my nurse’s excited “Yea!” when we found out my follicles were finally growing and I would be able to continue the round of IVF, or the comforting hand squeeze I got from Dr. Leonard after my transfer. I spent a year at another fertility clinic and never had that kind of experience.

Dr. Stassart…. A kind man and miracle worker!
We are so blessed to have worked with Dr. Stassart and the staff at RMIA. Thank you so much for our sweet girl who is now 2!!! We were pregnant after our first round of IVF in 2013! Now we are back for help with our frozen embryo we call Elsa! We can’t wait to do this again with Dr. Stassart… (He is a brilliant and compassionate doctor!) Thank you so much for all you have done for our growing family!

Thank you RMIA!!
My husband and I want to send out a big thank you for making our dream come true. We were ready to give up since nothing was working. Trying for seven years to conceive and having no success we needed something else. We decided to try RMIA and so happy we did. First cycle of IVF worked and we welcomed our miracle of a handsome baby boy on August 22 15. Thanks again to Dr. Stassart and his kind staff for giving us this precious gift of life.
