Heartland Center for Reproductive Medicine:

Our Response to COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

HCRM is dedicated to keep our patients and staff safe and healthy during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. HCRM has policies and guidelines in place aligned with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and local and state health authorities to help prevent the spread of illness. We are also adhering to recent guidelines that have been published by the American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) regarding the treatment of current and new patients.

Please review the new procedures we have put into place at HCRM:

1. All patients will receive a phone call 24-48 hours prior to the appointment and complete a prescreening questionnaire with questions regarding their travel history in the past 14 days and the presence of respiratory symptoms (fever of 100.4 or higher, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath) within the past 14 days.

2. All patients and visitors will complete the same prescreening questionnaire with a HCRM staff member prior to entering the clinic on the day of the appointment. Please allow for an extra 5 minutes prior to your appointment to complete the prescreening. It is possible that a patient may need to reschedule his/her appointment based on symptoms or travel history.

3. HCRM requests that patients come to the clinic unaccompanied, leaving their partners/support waiting for them at home or in their vehicles when feasible. We request that patients do not bring children to their appointment.

4. With the use of Telemedicine, we hope to continue to provide care to our new and current patients.

5. HCRM will reduce the frequency of clinic appointments during treatment cycle monitoring.

6. HCRM will frequently enforce infection control processes within the clinic, including good hand washing hygiene, frequent disinfecting of patient rooms and surfaces, and social distancing.

We at HCRM appreciate your ongoing support as we work together and do our part to "flatten the curve." Please contact our office at (402) 717-4200 for more information or any questions.

Five Signs That You’re Expecting: Early Pregnancy Symptoms By HCRM on December 15, 2016

A pregnant woman cradling her belly and smilingAt Heartland Center for Reproductive Medicine, PC, we offer a comprehensive range of fertility treatments designed to help patients achieve successful pregnancy. Dr. Victoria Maclin, Dr. Stephanie L.F. Gustin, and their team also provide education about fertility, helping patients to understand the processes that result in conception more fully. While many people believe that they know how reproduction works, they are often surprised by how much they have to learn.

For example, many people think that they will recognize when they have achieved successful pregnancy through some natural instinct - that they will simply “know.” However, this is often not the case. This is why our fertility specialists discuss pregnancy symptoms during consultations at our Omaha, NE fertility clinic. Knowing the early signs of pregnancy can help you to adjust your lifestyle and preserve the health of the fetus as soon as possible.

We invite you to read the following blog post detailing some of the most common pregnancy symptoms.

Five Early Signs You May Be Pregnant

You know that if you miss your period or experience morning sickness that you may be pregnant. However, here are five symptoms of pregnancy that you may not have known before now:

  1. Your lower back begins to ache: Backaches are common during pregnancy, unfortunately. However, they often begin in the lower back. A dull lower backache is one of the early tell-tale signs of pregnancy.
  2. Your breasts start to feel sore: If your breasts start feeling tender and sore, especially when you are putting your bra on, then you may be pregnant. Be attentive to subtle changes in the appearance of your breasts, such as a darkening of your areolas.
  3. Your favorite foods and beverages now have an off-putting smell: If that cup of coffee that once brought a smile to your face first thing in the morning now makes you cringe, you could be pregnant. That could also be the explanation if you suddenly find yourself crossing the street to avoid walking past that bakery you used to look forward to passing on your way back to work every afternoon because it smells bad to you now.
  4. Your mood changes from moment to moment: One minute you’re irrationally furious that a contestant on Wheel of Fortune bought a vowel when she should have solved the puzzle; the next, you’re sobbing because the puppy in that dog food commercial is just so darn cute. One thing you know for certain is that this isn’t like you. It could be the hormonal changes accompanying early pregnancy.
  5. You’re abnormally tired: Everybody gets worn out sometimes. You know your body better than anyone, though. If you suddenly find yourself getting winded after walking to the kitchen or feeling as though you need a nap because the nap you just woke up from really took it out of you, then you could be feeling the fatigue that sets in for many women as soon as one week after conception.
