Each fertility journey is unique. 💗
“I highly recommend FINA in any fertility journey situation. They are patient, kind, respectful, and supportive. We had 4 early miscarriages over the course of 1 year and had decided it was time to speak to a specialist. We were referred to Dr. Davenport at FINA by my gynecologist.
We went through two IVF cycles and one embryo transfer and were not able conceive. When we decided to stop trying for genetic children, I also had an open myomectomy with Dr. Davenport to remove fibroids from my uterus in preparation for embryo adoption this summer through a bank in Knoxville, TN. I say all that to point out that even though we were not successful in conceiving through FINA, we felt cared for and understood with our fertility journey. We appreciated the attention to detail from Dr. Davenport and we appreciated the continued support from the staff (including the hugs and kind words during difficult moments). We know they were just as disappointed as we were/are.
That said, we have been fully supported in our pursuit of embryo adoption and will continue to use FINA for our local checkups during the process. God is good, even when the answer is “no” and we know FINA operates under the same understanding. Thankful for a place that protects life at all stages.”
Thank you so much to our patient for sharing her #FINAstory . We appreciate you so much!

A patient’s FINA story ♥

We are so thankful to this thoughtful patient for sharing her story, even 2 years later! Experiences like this make us so happy!
“It’s been almost 2 years since seeing Dr. Davenport but never too late to give a review. Dr. Davenport is heaven sent and so is the staff. Coming from trying numerous years to get pregnant, I am thankful for this office. We looked everywhere for answers as to why we could not get pregnant.
After seeing Dr. Davenport, he informed us there was no issue and with a little bit of assistance, we got our miracle baby. I found out I was pregnant August 2019 with our beautiful daughter.
After finding out, I hugged Dr. Davenport and replied, “you did it”. He instantly replied back, “no, God did it”.
This is how you know you are in great hands! I speak highly of this clinic and refer everyone who ever felt like they had any issues. If I could give 10 stars, I wouldn’t hesitate.” ❤

Getting Started on your Fertility Journey

If you’ve been thinking about taking that first step, we encourage you to go ahead and reach out! You can either call us at 256-217-9613 or visit our website to set up your first consultation.
A couple’s first visit will consist of a consultation with Dr. Davenport. It is at this time that Dr. Davenport will gain a full understanding of your history, and you and Dr. Davenport will decide upon the best treatment plan for you. We encourage both spouses to be present at this visit, although we understand that this is not always possible.
At FINA, we will submit the charges for office visits, labs, ultrasounds, and procedures to your insurance company. Our staff will confirm what services are covered by your insurance, but we encourage all of our patients to verify their coverage as well.
If you do not have insurance or prefer that we do not file your fertility treatment with your insurance company, we offer cash pay packages for your visits. For those services that are not covered by insurance, we try to make them as affordable to you as possible. In these cases, we bundle services together in order to discount the overall cost to you.
Our fertility clinic is designed to personally assist you through this journey. Though you may feel anxious, we are here to walk this journey with you. ❤️

FINA babies and stories💕

We love seeing our patients’ precious babies wearing their little #FINA onesies and hearing about your experience with us!
Do you have a picture or #FINAstory you’d like to share on our social media? Just send us a message! 💕

Here is one patient’s #FINA story…

“We came to FINA one year after trying to conceive with no luck. Dr. Davenport devised a plan for us and we started our journey. We had 3 failed IUIs and we moved on to IVF. Our first transfer ended up being a chemical pregnancy which was heartbreaking for us but we decided to immediately do another one.

The next transfer cycle we got pregnant with our beautiful baby girl who is 4 months old now. Dr. Davenport, Kendra, Abby, and Tarryn were so great during the whole process! Kendra also explained things so well and was so supportive.”

Thank you to this patient for sharing her story! We are so honored to have been part of this family’s journey.

A patient shares her journey to motherhood…

Each fertility journey is unique. One patient shares her journey to motherhood…
“I came to FINA feeling completely hopeless. After months at another clinic, a failed retrieval, and learning that I was in ovarian failure at 30 years old: it was a last ditch effort to have a family. A friend referred me, and I didn’t have high hopes, but I wasn’t ready to give up. FINA was immediately different than my previous experience. Dr. D and his staff talked to me like a person and not a checkbook or a chart number. Dr. D told me he would never make promises, but he thought it was worth a shot.
I had two retrievals, yielding 9 genetically normal embryos, which was nothing short of a miracle. Unfortunately, we then learned that had basically no endometrial lining, and would likely never be able to sustain a pregnancy. I chose to utilize a gestational carrier. Mine and my husband’s embryo was transferred to our gestational carrier, and on November 16, 2023 we welcomed the most perfect baby boy. I will forever be grateful to the staff at FINA for, against all odds, helping to make me a mother.”❤

One patient’s fertility journey to twins…

Here is one patient’s fertility journey to twins.💕 We are so thankful to have been part of her story.
“We had a miscarriage in 2011 and after we tried to have another baby for 10 years. We got pregnant again in 2021 but again we lost the baby. I found FINA online and talked to my husband about it and we decided to call and give them a try.
So in November of 2021 we had our first appointment with FINA. The staff at FINA was so kind and helpful. Dr. Davenport did all test and told us that we had unexplained infertility. He advised us to do an IUI. We had the IUI done in February and we were blessed with twins! They are now a year old and we are so thankful that we found FINA! Thank you so much!”

October is Pregnancy & Infant Loss awareness

October is Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Month. This is a time when we can show support to the many families who have suffered such a tragic loss.
While child loss may be a more common occurrence than people think, there are still far too many families that face the devastating moments alone, desperate for support before, during or after the loss of a baby.
To all the families who have experienced this loss, we are so sorry. You are loved and supported, and your baby will never be forgotten.❤️

Supporting a loved one with infertility💕

You may know someone who is living with infertility, and while you may not relate personally you want to be a support for your friend.
Here are some things you can do:
1. Let them know you care. This is the best thing you can do for your friend.
2. Do your research on infertility and treatments so you are informed when your friend needs to talk.
3. Let them know you are available if they want to talk.
4. Ask them what they need. You can also ask them what the most helpful things to say are.
5. Support their decisions to have treatments or to stop.
6. Watch their older kids while they go to an appointment.
7. If you know they are trying to lose weight, you could offer to join them as an exercise buddy because it can help you reach your personal fitness goals as well.
8. Be a good listener. If you haven’t gone through infertility personally, you might not know what the right things to say are, but you can always listen.💕
If you personally are a fertility warrior and have some tips to share, we would love to hear from you! What are the most helpful things your friends and family can do for you?

World Embryologist Day

Today is World Embryologist Day! On this day in 1978, the world’s first IVF baby was born, and since then there have been amazing advances in fertility medicine that have helped countless couples achieve their dreams of having a baby .

Embryologists play an important role in an IVF clinic. Embryologists are those who study sperm, eggs, and embryos. They will be able to determine which sperm, eggs, and embryos are the healthiest and can be selected for IVF treatment.

We appreciate our embryologist, Katie, so much and the very important work she does!
