ECU's In Vitro Fertilization Clinic Helps Families
When reports surfaced this spring that East Carolina University has one of the top in vitro fertilization clinics in the country, it came as news to some, but it was no surprise to Jackie and Ed Tait.
The couple became familiar with the success rate of ECU Women’s Physicians more than three years ago. They didn’t need to wait on a report from the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology to tell them that. The evidence was staring them in the face — in the form of their twin daughters.
At nearly 4 years old, Alyssa and Ashlyn Tait were not part of the numbers that made ECU the fourth-ranked IVF program in the nation for women younger than 35. But the Taits are hoping that their next child, due in January, will help the clinic maintain the success rate recorded in 2008.
