Helping Little Miracles Happen

Meghan and John waited a long time to become parents — though not by choice. After 10 years of trying to conceive a child, they turned to Allegheny Health Network.

They could choose from a wide range of innovative treatments for both male and female infertility. The Jones Institute helped this couple gain something precious — a baby named Jack. Not to mention Jack’s new sibling who is on the way. Their growing family is living proof that expert, personalized medical care can turn little miracles into big brothers.

Providing hope with state-of-the-art care

Infertility doesn’t have to add to the stress of planning for a baby. At Allegheny Health Network (AHN), caring fertility specialists also deliver a sense of hope and peace of mind.

They are experienced with a wide variety of conditions, including:

  • Pregnancy loss issues
  • Polycystic ovarian syndrome (hormone imbalance)
  • Endometriosis
  • Menstrual and reproductive disorders
  • Tubal reversal

Patients have several treatment options, such as:

  • In vitro fertilization (IVF)
  • Egg freezing (cryopreservation)
  • Donor egg program

An infertility specialist explains

Medical Director Dr. Lori Homa treats men and women for infertility and relies on a caring team of nurses and in vitro fertilization laboratory specialists.

“Our philosophy of caring has always focused on providing a warm and supportive environment for patients struggling with infertility,” said Dr. Homa. “The goal is to help them find the least expensive, fastest, and safest way to have a baby.”

“Meghan and John tried to become pregnant for 10 years,” added Dr. Homa. “After joining the program at the Jones Institute, they achieved their first pregnancy and are now expecting their second child. Their persistence and belief in our program paid off for them. That’s what having hope is all about.”
