RISE Fertility Is Here to Help You Start Your Family and End in Baby Steps

RISE Fertility Offers a Calming, Welcoming Environment for Those Looking for Fertility Treatments 

To many, the word “family” means different things. It can mean anything from a full house of extended relatives to an individual with a pack of fur babies. For many couples, though, it means the opportunity to become parents. Newport Beach Fertility Doctors

That being said, growing a family isn’t always as easy as the movies or social media would lead us to believe. An oversimplified average shows that about one in eight couples struggles with fertility for different reasons. Fortunately, there are a number of fertility treatments with high success rates, but many of those options take place in frigid medical offices—a far cry from the warmth and comfort we typically associate with adding to the family. 

This is where Dr. Sanaz Ghazal, MD, FACOG and RISE Fertility come in. Located in Mission Viejo and Newport Beach right next to the bay, the RISE Fertility office is calm, welcoming and reminiscent of a chic Orange County home.

“The basic principles of medicine and physiology are all the same,” Dr. Ghazal explains. “At RISE, we are squarely focused on patient experience.” Newport Beach Fertility Doctors

“Every inch of our office was designed with intention,” she continues. “We want to remove barriers, elevate the patient experience…and create a safe space where people can open up about their hopes, goals, feelings and dreams—the opposite of cold and clinical.”  

Not only is RISE Fertility creating accessible fertility care with heart, but it’s also backed by a truly amazing, caring team of experts. Dr. Ghazal is a double board-certified fertility specialist and she earned her education from some of the most prestigious universities in the medical world (including Harvard and Yale). She also has her own family; Dr. Ghazal is a mom of three, so she knows from both a medical and personal experience how special having children can be.

“Because the fertility journey is super personal and delicate, I get to form strong bonds and walk side-by-side with my patients,” Dr. Ghazal explains. Aside from being available for patients, Dr. Ghazal also focuses on patient education—she wants those who work with her to feel empowered by giving them the tools necessary to make the best decisions for their unique situation.

“Information is power,” she shares. “The more you understand about your body, the better equipped you are to design your future.” Newport Beach Fertility Doctors

For those who are thinking of starting or adding to their family, Dr. Ghazal shares two pieces of advice. 

The first: time is of the essence. Fertility declines as we age, so if trying for children is something you want in the future, either get started now or fertility preservation may be an option worth considering.

The second: don’t be afraid to ask for help. “There’s still an unfair stigma around fertility,” says Dr. Ghazal. Discussions around fertility and infertility are more common and treatment centers like RISE Fertility have really high success rates, but there are many affected couples who still avoid seeking help. “There are still changes to be made [in perception], but we’re moving in the right direction,” she shares.

There is no one-size-fits-all solution to growing a family, which is why RISE Fertility offers a number of treatments for their patients. From in vitro fertilization and embryo transfer to fertility preservation and LGBTQIA+ fertility care, RISE Fertility can help couples learn about which options are best for them.

“I feel incredibly lucky. I have the best job in the world,” Dr. Ghazal beams. “I started on the labor floor in training and got to experience bringing life into the world—now I get to be with my patients when they hear their baby’s heartbeat for the first time. It’s such a privilege, an honor and something I don’t take for granted.”
