From our Patients

“Before I met you, Dr. Baldwin, I was always left with mixed feelings whenever I had a baby. I had to face doctors who embraced the culture of death. Once I hit the age of thirty-five it got even worse. They wanted testing and discussed abortion all the time. I felt more like my baby was at risk and felt depressed after every doctor’s visit. Now I feel safe living my faith and sharing it with a physician who understands.” – Susan”Thank you for all of your help, encouragement, and prayers. Miracles do happen!!” – Robin”Please share our success with others so that it may give them hope!” – Ingrid

“Your expertise in NaProTECHNOLOGY was reassuring, and probably saved the pregnancy and consequently the life our sweet Grace.” – Sally

“The month before I conceived Joseph and I had a miscarraige, those shots of progesterone were vital in this pregnancy!” – Brenda

“Tom and I feel very blessed to have you as our new doctor, and we thank God for your work, faith and guidance. For us you are a gift and that is how we think of our possible child, a gift.” – Phoebe

“We still very much wanted to become parents and strongly believe that God and love create and sustain families whether through birth or adoption.” – Antoinette

“We decided to drop the infertility procedures and continue with the adoption process. In mid February 1995 we received a phone call from Catholic charities of Great Boston stating that there was a beautiful one-month old baby girl available for us to adopt. We happily agreed to adopt our Mary Michelle. Two weeks later, I found out that I was pregnant. It seems God answered both our prayers (to either adopt or conceive.) In October 1995, Francis Paul arrived.” – Eleanor

“To all those who are in the beginning stages, don’t give up hope, all good things come to those who wait, and this is certainly worth waiting for.” – Wendy

“Dear Dr. Baldwin, Thank you for your time on the phone yesterday. I appreciate your efforts.Teaching the CREIGHTON MODEL FertilityCare System is important to me because Natural Family Planning (NFP) is a method that I believe in. My husband and I learned about this method months leading up to our wedding. NFP aligns with my growing desire to learn more about Theology of the Body (TOB).

In 2007, I attended two TOB workshops, one of them led by authority Christopher West. The message of TOB and NFP can change our world and open up the hearts and minds of men and women to alter their distorted view of intimacy, sexuality and marriage. As practicing Catholics living in a secular society, it is refreshing for my husband and me to learn about the FertilityCare System – one that requires the work of both of us and values the reproductive system of both man and woman.

While using the CREIGHTON MODEL FertilityCare System, it was discovered in my charting that I had ovarian dysfunction. My primary care refused to justify to my health insurance that I needed blood work to verify a potential problem. The CREIGHTON MODEL was not something with which he was familiar and therefore he refused to give me care. One door closes and another opens and that is what led me to you, Dr. Baldwin. What a difference! I switched to you as my physician and you started me on a regiment of progesterone and eventually Naltrexone and now I am expecting our first child.

NFP led me to a great and caring instructor, a thorough and gentle physician, deep introspection about my views of avoiding and achieving pregnancy and debunked my misconception of that unreliable “rhythm method”. I understand that NFP is not just for practicing Catholics who want to live according to Church teaching. However, this method gives couples hope without having to violate any Church teaching or endure big expenses of procedures such as in vitro fertilization. The method is scientific and applicable to all races, faiths and cultures.

With a child on the way, I am excited about this wonderful opportunity. I am aware that there is a great need for practitioners in our area. My goal is to complete the prestigious CREIGHTON MODEL FertilityCare System Practitioner program and be able to serve those looking for this type of instruction in our community. I look forward to embarking on this rewarding and worthwhile journey. Thank you.” – Abby.
