MAURY REGIONAL INFERTILITY SUPPORT GROUP MEETING SCHEDULED

COLUMBIA, Tenn. — Maury Regional Medical Center will host an Infertility Support Group meeting on Thursday, September 24, from 6:00 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. in the fourth floor classroom of the medical center.

During this seminar, Julie Heffington, childbirth coordinator at Maury Regional Medical Center, will discuss infertility treatments, medications, nutrition, exercise, in vitro fertilization (IVF), intra-uterine insemination (IUI) and much more.

“Approximately 6.1 million couples in the United States, or 10 percent of all couples of childbearing age, have difficulty conceiving,” said Heffington. “In this group, we discuss the options available to those who are trying to conceive. There is also a tremendous benefit to being able to bond with others who understand the trials and challenges of infertility based on their own personal experiences.” 

The Infertility Support Group is open to any couple experiencing difficulty conceiving. Each meeting, participants learn about and discuss topics such as infertility treatments, medications, nutrition, exercise, in vitro fertilization, intra-uterine insemination and much more. For more information, call Julie Heffington at 931.490.7046.
