After one surgery, countless medications & two failed IUI cycles, a friend mentioned looking into Dr. Parry at Positive Steps in Madison. I will admit, I was very hesitant and guarded my heart to not get my hopes up. On a Sunday at midnight, I decided to fill out a consultation online. Monday morning, I had an appointment!

I went in to see Brittany Linton, NP and from the moment I sat down in the waiting room, I knew this was where I needed to be. I felt comfortable from the time I was checked in with the front desk. As I sat in the consultation room, with the lights dim and the relaxation sand table, I had never felt more seen or heard. I felt like more than just another patient & that’s what meant the world to me.

After speaking with Brittany on a Friday, Nic & I had to make a decision by the following week if we were going to move forward with IVF, in order to be in the next cycle. I knew the minute I left the office that day, we were doing IVF and we were going to have our baby!

Once we started the IVF process, there were God winks everywhere we looked. Friends and family helped us more than we could have ever imagined. Every step of the process was prayed over. One in particular was our meeting to sign paperwork and go over the whole process. While Nic & I sat in the room with Dana, a bit overwhelmed I’ll admit, she began telling us about PGT and where the embryos would be stored. As she continued with all the information, she mentioned the name of the testing facility.. “Cooper Testing”. Nic & I immediately looked at each other and knew everything was falling into place. It was like a little sigh of relief. As a couple we knew our baby’s names & we knew one day our little boys name would be Cooper Callahan

After our transfer & finally being pregnant, we sat down for our last appointment. Nic and I will never forget the embryologist bringing us Cooper’s Petri dish & Dr. Parry telling us it was his very first crib! We loved every part of the staff. Nurses, front desk, anesthesia, providers & lab!

And here we are, over one year later, with baby. Cooper Glen Callahan was born on February 2nd, 2022. He weighed 7lb 6oz and was 21 inches long. We will forever be grateful for Dr Parry & his staff. I could never say thank you enough for everything they did for us! It really says something about a clinic when you’re sad that you don’t have any follow-up appointments. Positive Steps is more than a fertility clinic – they quickly became family.
