Reproductive Medicine Associates of Michigan will hold its 3rd annual Baby Reunion on Saturday for couples and individuals that have successfully completed fertility treatment.
The even will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at Clawson Park, located at 1098 N. Bywood Avenue.
RMA of Michigan says the event allows former patients to reconnect with the physicians and staff that played an integral role in their care.
"The popularity of this event has allowed us to make it an annual event," said managing partner Dr. Brad Miller. "Patients truly look forward to this event all year."
Organizers said the event will feature a BBQ lunch, trackless train rides, face painting and glitter tattoos for children.
The Campbell family says they are among those that have attended all of the reunions: Sarah, Tom and two of their IVF successes.
"My family looks forward to the annual RMA Baby Reunion," said Sarah. "It's wonderful to be surrounded by so many success stories and shows us just how much the doctors, nurses and staff of RMA care about and are committed to their patients."
Fertility treatment at RMA of Michigan, from basic intrauterine insemination to leading edge options, such as IVF and ICSI, resulted in nearly 1,700 babies since the fertility clinic was founded in Troy in 2006.
RMA of Michigan says a pregnant fertility patient is usually released to her OBGYN after eight weeks of pregnancy. Organizers said the Baby Reunion allows the clinic doctors and staff the opportunity to reunite and celebrate with these new moms and dads.
"At one time, most of these patients had little hope of having a baby. To see these families return with their babies is such a remarkable feeling," said Dr. Lynda Wolf, Partner at RMA of Michigan.
