Dr. Clark took a special interest in pregnancy after the age of 35, which according to age alone, is considered a high-risk pregnancy. She was inspired not only by the experiences of friends and patients, but by her own personal experience of trying to start a family at the age of 40.

Dedicated to her education, training and career for 15+ years, Dr. Clark married at the age of 39 and started trying to start a family at age 40. After five failed cycles of IVF, she was able to become pregnant via egg donor and delivered twins Sydney Renée and Rémy Vaughn in September 2016.

With this website, Dr. Clark has utilized her medical expertise, in addition to her own personal experiences, to develop a source of reliable information for anyone wanting to learn more about fertility, pregnancy and postpartum.

She hopes to give a voice to those just starting or on their journey after age 35 and be a reliable source of information for those who anticipate starting a family later in life.
