Stanford Medicine Children’s Health adds Fertility and Reproductive Health Services


The longstanding expertise of Stanford Medicine’s Fertility and Reproductive Health team has a new home: This month, the team moved to Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford and Stanford Medicine Children’s Health.

“The health of your baby starts before you get pregnant, and we are a natural part of that continuum,” said Valerie Baker, MD, medical director of Fertility and Reproductive Health Services and associate professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the Stanford University School of Medicine. “Starting out strong sets the framework for a healthy life.”

“This move is really a natural fit with the hospital’s ‘Start Strong’ campaign for healthy pregnancies and babies,” said Barry Behr, PhD, director of Stanford’s in vitro fertilization laboratory and co-director of Fertility and Reproductive Health Services. The hospital is already home to superb obstetric, labor and delivery, and newborn care at its Johnson Center for Pregnancy and Newborn Services, he noted.

The team offers broad expertise in fertility problems, including:

“We are uniquely positioned to offer a really comprehensive approach to helping couples fulfill their desires for a family,” Baker said. “In addition, many of us have been through fertility treatment ourselves, so we realize this is not an easy thing for patients to go through. We value being able to help people through a hard time, as well as celebrating with them when they have the joy of a healthy pregnancy.”
