Mayo Clinic honors moms

ROCHESTER, MN (FOX 47) -- In honor of Mother's Day, Mayo Clinic held it's second annual event for patients who have succesfully undergone infertility treatment.

Saturday morning, families from all over the area got to celebrate and share their success stories.

Mayo doctors say, this event is especially important for the mother's to reconnect with their doctors and to meet other women who have undergone the same treatment.

One family says, they're blessed to have twin girls.

Jennifer and Cory McIntyre say, "We're finally getting some sleep..and we've just really enjoyed being parents, and we waited a long time for it and to be able to go through this process it's been a miracle for us."

Since founding the reproductive and infertility department 26 years ago, Mayo doctors have developed better ways of implanting and harvesting the embryos, making success rates much higher.
