WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

Many couples dream of starting a family. But it isn't always easy to get pregnant.

Now, a doctor in Wilmington is giving hope to couples who are having problems conceiving.

Couples no longer have to drive hours for In Vitro Fertilization.

A doctor in Wilmington is offering IVF for the first time in the Cape Fear region.  

Dr. Karenne Fru of Coastal Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility started with three couples, as a “proof of concept” for New Hanover Regional Medical Center.

One of her patients gave birth in November.

The other two are due in March.

One of the couples will share their story about getting pregnant using IVF on Thursday, Feb. 8 on WECT News at 6 p.m. and we’ll hear from Dr. Fru about bringing the procedure to Wilmington.
