Amazing things Cara's made
We build families- what could be more amazing? Infertility is often described by patents as the most desperate period of their lives. These patients often spend their retirement on IVF procedures which do not guarantee them a baby. Doctors and embryologists admit current embryo selection methods are subjective, and some even damage embryos, causing more miscarriages. We have built a non-invasive tool to diagnose embryo developmental potential so we can all be confident we are transferring only healthy, viable embryos into patients. Our tool is safe, does not harm the embryo, provides a quantitive and comprehensive assessment of embryo healthy and delivers feedback immediately. Selecting healthy embryos helps people get pregnant on the first round of IVF, saves patients money, decreases common frustrations and depression associated with infertility and produces healthy babies!
