CHATTANOOGA, Tenn., Sept. 3, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- At Tennessee Reproductive Medicine's (TRM) baby party, families from across the Southeast will gather this Saturday to celebrate their children born as a result of assisted fertility.
TRM's extended family of parents, who wouldn't be parents without the fertility clinic's efforts, gather to count their blessings—the estimated 80 babies and children that will be in attendance.
"The struggle of infertility and journey towards starting a family is all about the individual or couple," said Dr. Jessica Scotchie, who started TRM in 2008 with cofounder, Dr. Rink Murray. "This event is intended to look beyond our patients' gray days and showcase the outcomes of all their hard work – the kids."
It's estimated that one in eight U.S. couples will have trouble conceiving or sustaining pregnancy. And one-third of couples in which the woman is 35 years or older will experience infertility.
