I just want to start by saying Thank You!!! I was like most women you help in that I was ready to be finished with children because my husband at the time was lets say...Not wonderful! I decided that I wanted no more children so after my son was born in December of 1996, at the age of 26 I had my tubes tied. It was a decision I never regretted. He and I stayed married until 2005 when we parted ways in a rather ugly divorce. I swore off men at that point too.

Little did I know there were some really nice men out there that knew how to treat a lady correctly. I found one of those special guys and we got married in June of 2007. He had never had children and wanted them terribly but he loved me enough to marry me even though I couldn't have anymore kids. (wink, wink) That year his cousin went to Kentucky to have a tubal reversal by Dr. Levin and got pregnant right away. He and I both started to look into what it would cost and decided to start the ball rolling. by August of 2008 we were set.

We drove from Wisconsin to Kentucky and I had my surgery on August 4th. Let me tell you I was soooooo nervous my blood pressure was sky high. But Dr. Levin came in a calmed me down and said everything would be great. Surgery went good and we went back to the hotel that afternoon. The next day Dr. Levin came in and checked me and said all was good and that we needed to wait 4 wks to play. That was no problem since I broke my incision open 2 weeks later and was rushed to the ER. Everything after that went just fine.

We found out we were pregnant on Sept 27. Wow that was fast!! We were blessed with the most beautiful baby boy on June 23, 2009. Thank you again Dr. Levin! It has been some time now since Sam was born and we had been trying for another and after trying for a year and a half we found out it happened again. Unfortunately that pregnancy was not viable and ended in a miscarriage on March 13, 2012.

But I again want to thank you because we are now 12 weeks along and everything is going great. We will be looking forward to meeting the newest little sweetie to join our family on January 14, 2013.

Thank you , thank you, thank you Dr. Levin and your wonderful staff!

You have made me the happiest mommy in the world. On January 10th 2013 we welcomed into our lives a beautiful little girl named Arabella Julianne. She weighed 7lbs 4oz and was 19 and a half inches long. I will be 42 in April and I know that I will not have the opportunity to have any more children because this was a hard pregnancy for me. But my life is complete! Arabella joins her brother Samuel James who was born on June 23, 2010. He was born about 10 and a half months after my reversal.

I have older children ranging in age from 16 to 24 and like most women that you have helped, I wanted more children later in life after a major life change. My husbandís cousin went to you and also a friend of mine and gave you great reviews. So in the summer of 2008 I started the process. On August 4, 2008 at 3pm I went in for my surgery. I was very scared and your staff put me at ease. In no time at all we were pregnant and I thought holy cow that really worked fast. The second time was not as easy but I think that was due to my age. After a miscarriage in March 2012, I decided I was not going to try again because we worked so hard and it turned out so awful. I just didnít want that pain again. Low and behold out of the blue in May 2012 I found out I was pregnant again and very nervous the same thing would happen as in March. We were so blessed this time and now have 5 beautiful children in our family. So again I want to thank you and tell you that you are wonderful! Without you I would not have my precious sweeties that I love more and more every day.

Sincerely, Teri and James Rupp Monroe, Wisconsin
