UAMS Fertility Center gives new hope to Arkansans

UAMS Fertility Center gives new hope to Arkansans


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Infertility issues can be devastating for couples hoping to start a family, but there's new hope in Central Arkansas now that UAMS has reinvented its women's health center.

"I think there is a lot of misconception about fertility that if you go to a fertility doctor, you're going to have 8 or 10 babies or something," said 32-year-old Shanna McKeller. "But that's not necessarily the case."

All Shanna McKeller and her husband Jason ever wanted was one baby.

"After three years of trying, we finally got pregnant and we lost that baby," McKeller said.

Two years and two miscarriages later, the couple went from doctor to doctor, looking for a solution.

"A lot of doctors don't give you answers so we just wanted answers as to what we needed to do," she said.
