The Doctors: Happy Ending After Infertility Struggle
The Doctors had previously introduced Alexis and Gabe, a couple who had been trying to have a baby since their wedding day. They suffered two miscarriages, one insemination, and two rounds of IVF, but in two years they still haven’t been able to have a baby. Alexis was told that things are difficult for them because her eggs are like those of a 45-year-old woman. They were devastated to learn that there was a small chance that they could ever have a baby. They began seeing a different doctor but were still unsuccessful. They also learned that their fertility issues could also be related to male factor, making things even more difficult. A potential adoption also fell through just one day before they were to become parents, but they still refused to give up. Alexis and Gave were thrilled to join the show with an update.
The glowing, happy couple joined the show, walking out on set with a baby in each of their arms. The little boy, Grant, became a part of their family when his birth mom came to them explaining that she was looking for a family to raise her son. A week later, miraculously, Alexis found out that she was pregnant! Their baby girl was born without the need for any fertility treatments. Alexis admitted that after four years of infertility struggles, she adores every aspect of being a mom, especially to two young ones! It’s highly likely that the stress relief that accompanied becoming parents to Grant led to their ability to conceive naturally.
Alexis encouraged anyone struggling with fertility issues to refuse to give up. The Doctors then surprised the family with $1,500 worth of baby supplies from Bel Bambini. Additionally, Mabel’s Labels gave them $5,000 to put toward the kids’ college savings fund.
The Doctors: Sweet Treats With Health Benefits
The Doctors then switched gears to get the attention of everyone with a sweet tooth. Believe it or not, you can actually reap the health benefits of eating dessert, thanks to the help of author Kimberly Snyder. Kimberly explained that you can enjoy sweets that not only taste good but are also good for your skin and hair. She likes to make dessert balls with cranberries because cranberries are a natural diuretic which help to flush out excess water weight. You can also add almonds and sunflower seeds for protein which is good for healthier hair, and vitamin E which is also great for hair and skin.
Kimberly loves to make a chocolate mousse with raw cacao to boost circulation. You can find the tasty and guilt-free recipe in her new book. You can also try her Evening Replenishing Elixir that contains another anti-inflammatory: turmeric. The base of the drink is warmed hemp milk and she added cardamom and turmeric. Hemp milk is rich, dairy-free, and great for your hair and nails.
