Fertility was directed and produced by St.Charles practitioner of holistic medicine. Dr. Jennifer Mercier has been in practice since 1999 and specializes in fertility, pelvic pain, recovery from gynecological surgery, traumatic birth and sexual abuse. Medical care for the women enduring fertility challenges has increased exponentially over the past 20 years and it's time to ask the question of why and is the medical fertility treatment working? The astounding answer is that women may be waiting until later in life to start a family but to no avail medical treatments are putting women at possible long term health risks with very low yielding pregnancy and live birth rates. We pose the important questions in our film that will help raise awareness about what direction is best to take when considering any route to fertility treatment. By attending our film premier you'll leave with a solid knowledge of how to proceed with your care or how to help guide a woman or couple to a safer and gentler approach to their conscious conception. Our project was filmed locally in Saint Charles at the Arcedium Coffeehouse, Mount St.Mary Park, Hotel Baker as well as our street interviews in downtown Oak Park. We are grateful to Ron Onesti, owner of the historical Arcada Theater in Saint Charles, for allowing us to premier our film. Looking forward to seeing you there!
