Congratulations to Dr. Jenny Wang for her new book titled "Farewell to infertility" (告别不孕症)!
Dr. Wang is a life member of CCMSBC, who has been practicing as an obstetrician/ Gynecologist in China, US and Canada. She is currently working at Grace Fertility Center.
Knowing the infertility is more and more common among Chinese couples, and most Chinese women lack of the basic knowledge of their own reproductive system, she wrote this book to help.
This book explains the basic anatomy and physiology of women’s reproductive system; the possible causes of infertility; The basic knowledge of Assisted Reproductive Technology and how to have a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby.
The event is complimentary for CCMSBC members.
Members are welcome to bring spouse and children with a fee of $40/person. Space is limited.
