A Chattanooga fertility clinic is celebrating 10 years of helping couples start their families

Tennessee Reproductive Medicine held a family-friendly party Sunday to share the joy with those they've impacted.

Channel 3 has told you about the Chattanooga couple, Scarlet and Chris Brown, who was given a free in vitro fertilization cycle (IVF) after struggling with infertility. The IVF worked.

"We certainly have some emotionally challenging days in what we do, but to be able to see literally the fruits of our labor and just hundreds of babies just walking around and the families and the smiles and happiness that they have makes us that more committed to continuing to grow our practice and serving the people in this community," Dr. Jessica Scotchie said.

Kelly Shell is a former Tennessee Reproductive Medicine. She said the process is difficult, but the reward is worth it.

"It's tough, but the end reward is just absolutely amazing. I never thought I would be where I am today with them," Shell said.

The clinic has helped more than 10,000 patients.
