Dr. Schillings Introduces the RMAPA – Tree of Hope

Hello. I’m Doctor Wendy Schillings. Today, I’d like to introduce you to something that we started this year at Reproductive Medicine Associates of Pennsylvania. It is our Tree of Hope. At the beginning in the year in January, this tree was empty. When we released patients at approximately 8 and a half weeks pregnant, they are able to come to the tree and put up a set of footprints. This is a wonderful celebration for the patients and the staff. It is their time to graduate on to their obstetrics practice. The date today is August 15, and these are the footprints we already have for the year. We look forward to filling the tree for the rest of the year. And next year, we plan to start a new tree. Thank you.
