RIDGEWOOD, NJ, May 17, 2023 – The Valley Hospital Fertility Center hosted its annual Baby Jubilee on Monday, May 8, to celebrate all of the babies born and families created over the past few years. The event, which was held at Seasons in Washington Township, took a three-year hiatus during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Baby Jubilee offers families the chance to enjoy a formal reunion with the Center’s doctors, nurses, and staff who helped them achieve their dreams of parenthood. During this well-attended event families also socialize with one another sharing stories from their personal journeys, discussing parenting advice, and making lasting friendships. More than 200 adults and children attended this year’s celebration.
“The Baby Jubilee was a wonderful testament to the many beautiful babies that The Valley Hospital Fertility Center has helped bring into the world,” said Patricia Maiello, a former patient. “It was very touching to see so many happy, smiling families made possible by Valley’s competent doctors and staff. Our experience with the Center was a very positive one. We were never discouraged, despite being older than some other parents, and felt supported during every step of the process.”
“From the beginning, our experience with The Valley Hospital Fertility Center was extremely positive. As a same-sex couple looking to expand our family, finding a place where we felt comfortable and safe was a priority, and the Center did that for us,” said Mariel Pina, a former patient. “If you are hoping to expand your family, whatever that family looks like, heteronormative, same-sex, LGBTQ+, single parent, or whatever your situation is, we would highly recommend the Center. By the end of the journey, the Center feels more like family than doctors, nurses, and staff. You have a whole team rooting for you and their support is priceless.”
