The Birth of Hila’s Baby: A Tribute to Hadassah Medical Center Ingenuity and Perseverance

When 35-year-old Hila failed to conceive despite 13 rounds of treatment in 4 different centers in Israel, fertility specialists at the Hadassah Medical Center suggested they try a slightly different approach.

Instead of implanting the embryos right away following in vitro fertilization, Hadassah's physicians proposed that the embryos be frozen and implanted during Hila's next natural menstrual cycle, when the body's natural mucus environment would be more conducive to pregnancy than during a treatment cycle. Hila did become pregnant, but the fetus aborted at seven weeks. She pressed the physicians to try again. This time, following the same procedure of implanting the embryo during her next natural cycle, Hila gave birth to a healthy baby girl!
