The Doctors: Desperate To Have A Baby

The Doctors previously met a couple, Cody and Nicole, who were trying desperately to have a baby. They even considered divorce. When Cody found that he was unable to conceive naturally, Nicole brought up the idea of a sperm donor, but Cody was completely against it, telling her she should find another husband since he couldn’t give her a child. The Doctors had reached out to a reproductive doctor who offered to do a round of IVF for them. Cody and Nicole found success with the treatment and actually ended up having twins!

Cody and Nicole joined the show with their adorable little twins. They feel lucky, saying that just looking at their babies makes them feel so lucky. They were so thankful to The Doctors for helping them achieve their dream of becoming parents. They have since started a foundation to help other families struggling with infertility. The babies were born five weeks early and the little boy had to be airlifted for a hole in his lung but once that was healed up, they’ve been “awesome.”

The Doctors surprised the family with a 1-year supply of diapers and wipes from Huggies, for each baby, for free. They were also making a donation through the National Diaper Network, in their name, to help even more babies in need. The family also got a twin stroller. Dr William Schoolcraft, the family’s infertility specialist, joined the show. He said he rarely gets to see the “finished product” so he was excited to see the “gift of life” he was able to give to Cody and Nicole.
