What People Say About Us

This practice is a true gift from God, my husband and i feel so blessed to have found the office. The staff is so kind, patient, and eager to meet your needs. They have a genuine care for you personally and see you as an individual, not just another face to walk through the door.

Ashlyn

We were so impressed with the level of care and expertise that FMCC provides! From the first appointment, we knew we were in great hands. We love the practice of meeting each doctor and midwife as it gave so much relief when it came to delivery and knowing we would see familiar faces for the big day! Although I had to end up having a necessary c-section, I was thoroughly impressed with the surgery and recovery. I highly recommend this practice!

Jessica

If I could rate this office 10 stars I would. I can’t say enough good things. I went here for Infertility issues and now my first pregnancy! Every woman and family deserves the kind of healthcare you will get at FMCC. All the staff care about their patients, they listen, they’re proactive with care, and they get to the root cause of what’s going on with you, not masking problems with meds or brushing things off. Highly highly recommend!

Sarah

What an incredible group of women whose strength, wisdom and courage has created the opportunity for so many lives to be born, families grown & hearts expanded in such a peaceful way, as God intended!

The most amazing supportive and empowering women in the industry. Pregnancy and delivery would not be the same without them.

So thankful to have had this team with me through the delivery of both my youngest babes! The entire staff is amazing!

Thank you to this amazing staff!! We have them to thank for our little peanut! You were an amazing support with her delivery in the hospital. Thank you for all your dedication!

They are all fantastic! And a big thank you for delivering my perfect rainbow baby in March. So thankful to everyone for helping us!

We love you all!! Thank you for your kindness and dedication!

Thank you for helping us walk through that journey, the journey to our beautiful rainbow and miracle!

Everyone at both offices are always so gentle and kind. It’s a blessing to have the knowledge support and help through this journey.

The Lord used FMCC to diagnose our infertility and by God's grace and kindness, just welcomed our first baby a couple weeks ago at the Holy Family Birth Center.

Thank you for everything, Dr. Stroud! The staff at FMCC is amazing. We are so blessed to have FMCC guide us in our fertility journey. Now we have an amazing little girl!

The doctors and staff at FMCC are all so wonderful. I’m so glad we had them by our side throughout our fertility journey.

Thank you for your work, Dr. Stroud! We are so thankful that you not only gave us answers but three beautiful miracles.

The best group there is! Three years of sadness before I met Dr. Stroud and 2 healthy babies later, here I am.

Dr. Stroud was a God-send to my family through my journey. After 6.5 years, I was sent to him from a friend, and I thank the Lord daily for it. He truly listens and cares. After 8 years, I got my miracle baby.

We are so grateful for Dr. Stroud! After he did my second surgery for stage 4 Endometriosis, he guided us to conceiving our miracle baby boy! It took us 8 years of struggling with infertility to have him! After numerous other doctors said I only had a 1% chance of having my own child, Dr. Stroud didn't give up on us! He is truly a blessing from God!

After dozens of fertility “specialist” consultations, the general consensus was “take these drugs” or “IVF is your only option”. We were fortunate enough to meet Dr. Stroud. His patience and compassion is unmatched. With his help we conceived naturally within one year of our first appointment. Dr. Stroud and his team truly are blessings.

Patient Reviews

I have had three babies with FMCC and one at the birth center. I have loved my experiences. They encouraged education, making me more confident. I appreciate each midwife that assisted me and I am so very thankful this practice was an option six years ago when I was first pregnant. I am not sure if my experiences would have been the same with anyone else.

I cannot recommend FMCC enough. I became a patient in December of 2022 after not being happy with my level of care with my previous doctor. I had an appointment scheduled for early 2023 and, unbeknownst to me at the time, I would not be needing it. I found out two days after Christmas that I was pregnant with my daughter. FMCC immediately had me go in to have my hCG and progesterone checked, which led to progesterone supplementation through my entire pregnancy. Their level of care in unmatched. Everyone in the office is always so kind, and I left feeling very well informed after every appointment. Especially when I received my diagnosis of gestational diabetes. Erin made sure all of my questions were answered and I was able to reach out if I had any additional questions. At 35 weeks I was diagnosed with Cholestasis and Nicky made sure to explain exactly what it was, & why my induction would be necessary. She was amazing through the process. Marianne ended up delivering my daughter, and she was truly a Godsend. I’m so thankful that she was there, I couldn’t have done it without her or God by my side.
Morgan C.
FMCC will always hold a special place in our hearts. This is where we went for our first pregnancy/birth. The midwives, physicians, ultrasound techs, and clinic staff were all wonderful at all of our appointments. Dr. Stroud and Dr. Stalling both spent considerable time with us early in the pregnancy discussing concerns we had; and did additional research for us to ease our minds. Dr. Bauer made an impact for us towards the end of my wife's pregnancy by ordering additional labs, and simply listening to the complaints and concerns we had. Marianne delivered our sweet daughter; and without her calming presence and extensive knowledge, I have no doubt our experience could have been a totally different one. Thankful for this faith-based practice; you'll feel peace & love upon entering the office.
Isaiah D.
I can’t say enough good things about this office. I travel 3 hours to see Dr. Stalling for endometriosis and fertility care. Every staff member I’ve encountered has been extremely kind, compassionate, and SO helpful. I’m truly blown away by their willingness to go above and beyond to help their patients. They answer all my questions and concerns with so much patience, I never feel rushed, and they always get back to me promptly if I call or leave a message on the patient portal. I’ve never received such outstanding medical care. I’m so thankful I found Dr. Stalling and this office.
Melissa W.
Some people may think FMCC only does Fertility and OB Care, but they do all GYN care including routine GYN stuff like Annual Exams, etc. I had a daVinci Hysterectomy by Dr. Stroud and I couldn't have asked for a better physician. Everyone heals differently, but I was able to bounce back to feeling like myself and in no pain at all within 2 weeks. I only had to take pain medication once when I got home from the hospital that day.I will continue to see FMCC for my routine GYN care and definitely recommend you give them a try also.

I had great experiences being cared for and delivering with FMCC in Fort Wayne. I also have nothing but good things to say about their long-distance care, which in my case was progesterone supplementation after I had moved out of state and had two miscarriages. My doctors in my new town did not have anything to offer to try to prevent another miscarriage after I had two in close succession, but FMCC was very compassionate and helpful. I had a phone consultation with Dr. Stroud, and numerous people in the office helped with navigating the process of finding and using supplemental progesterone, ultimately resulting in a healthy pregnancy and baby. I would highly recommend them to anyone in Fort Wayne or anyone dealing with fertility issues long-distance. It is worth any extra effort it may take to work with them.
Stephanie M.
Only good things to say about this practice. My husband and I chose to make the 2 hour drive for my appointments and to deliver our baby with FMCC because the level of care, the entirely pro-life, pro-family practice, the kindness and personal attention, and the professionalism. Dr. Stroud, Marianne, and the staff are all top-notch. We will continue to use this practice.
Trish G.
I absolutely love this practice, what they stand for, how they care, and I recommend them to any and all! I had my first baby at Dupont Hospital and my second at the Holy Family Birth Center. Amazing experiences both times.Whether you're trying to achieve pregnancy or not, pregnant or not, a healthy woman or not...this place can and will help you in women's health.
Shelly E.
I have been a patient of Dr. Stroud’s since 2016. I have never met another doctor or team of healthcare professionals from administrative positions through doctors and nurses, who have such great bedside manner, genuine care and concern for their patients. The fact that I live 2 hrs away now and this is the only care team who understands my situation with pcos, mthfr gene mutation and low to almost no progesterone, is mind boggling but I am so grateful that I am under their care!! I had the ovarian wedge resection done by Dr. Stroud in August 2021. My life has changed! I have regular cycles, almost no “extreme” mood swings along with SEVERAL other things that have healed up almost instantly. I don’t know of another group of people who understand needing to put a mother on progesterone at max dosage, it has been what has saved my last 3 pregnancies. I am also a 3 times successful v-bac mother due to the time FMCC has spent giving me the confidence to know that my body is capable and the knowledge to advocate for myself. I owe so much to FMCC and am always so grateful for their help even being so far away. They have been so patient and work with me to manage my progesterone levels during my pregnancies, due to the fact that I can not get another doctor in my area to understand the importance of progesterone injections for my body to continue to keep the baby. I know this is quite a bit to read, but it was worth the time to write. I highly recommend FMCC!!!
Rebekah W.
FMCC is the place to go for high quality, individualized care. The staff and mission there far exceeded the level of care I received from another local women's health provider by emphasizing the importance of educating the mother of the birth process and local hospital practices while also empowering the mother to pursue what is best for her and her baby to come. My experience at FMCC was far different than that of my peers who chose other prenatal care providers in the way I was prepared and educated for the significant process of child labor and birth. I am so thankful for this team and practice here in my hometown!
Aubrey B.
From beginning to end and all the ups and downs the providers and staff of fmcc were always supportive and informative! We were blessed to have this team for 3 babies. Even when labor and delivery of our last threw us a curve ball we felt very informed by our team and they lead the way for us to have a non emergent delivery and safe arrival of baby!
Stephanie W.
I’m an employee and a patient. I recommend FMCC to ALL my family and friends for their OB/GYN needs. My younger daughter is a patient and absolutely loves Ellise! She’s patient, kind and understanding.Thanks FMCC for not only being an amazing employer but for taking care of my family and friends!🩵
Diane H.
I’ve seen many different OB’s and fertility drs. I can say that I have never felt more cared for than I did here. And when I say cared for I truly felt like they cared about me and what was best for me! I feel so blessed to have found this practice to care for me through my infertility, prenatal, delivery (two babies!) and postpartum! I’m not sure there is enough time or room to write all of the good things I have to say about them but if you’re really curious send me a message and I’d be glad to share all the wonderful reasons I love this practice!
Jessy S.
I have received nothing but impeccable care at this practice! Everyone is so caring and really takes the time to listen and to put your wants and needs into action. In addition, all of my appointments and procedures have been covered by my insurance so it’s been very very affordable. I have so many favorite employees here from the front desk to the providers and I have to give shout outs to them here! Dr. Stroud and his wife Marianne (but I think this goes without saying as co-owners of the practice!), Dr. Stalling who really committed and deep dove into my overall health to identify the issue, Stephanie Wilson who is just the sweetest and funniest Creighton Model charting instructor, Emma Ziino, Allison Francois, and Becca Cronin are always incredibly kind during exam visits, Angela Meyer who drew my blood perfectly many many a time, Stacy Mullinger who amazingly addresses me by name the moment I walk in the door, and Diane Hartman who always snaps the cutest photos of our little one during ultrasounds!Thank you everyone for making my experience with you all so incredible!
Hetty V.
I have never felt so heard by women’s health staff in my life. I felt comfortable, respected and cared about from the moment I walked in the door to the moment I walked out. I recently was able to establish care with Sarah Rothgeb, NP and I could not be more impressed. She took the time to listen to me and actually understand my struggles both past as well as present. She made plans, with just the first visit, to actually investigate the issues. Previously, I’ve had nothing but OBGYNs from the larger networks dismiss me and just throw birth control at my struggles (which either did not help or had several horrible side effects). And I’ve never gotten answers or non harmful solutions. Now, I feel like I’m on the path to actual solutions and women’s health CARE. Thank you FMCC for all you guys do!
Taylor G.
Great care, friendly staff. I personally love that they are Christian. Holistic experience in womens health care and pregnancy. (Photos of office at holiday time!)
Ireena K.
Hands down an amazing doctors office! I absolutely love the midwifery! Everyone is so personable when I walk in. They know me by name and are always willing to answer my questions, phone calls, and even text messages! Huge shout out to so many of the staff members!Taylor, Stacy, and Tammi are always the first I see upon walking in! They always greet me with a smile and by name! They are always patient and kind. If they don’t have the answer, they never hesitate to find it out for me!Angela, literally the best phlebotomist! She knows me by name and recognition! She always hits my veins the first time and I have never had any issues with bruising or soreness!Amanda, Stephanie, Mackenzie, Megan, and Nyaing, are just a few of their amazing staff members! But these girls go above and beyond every time! Always so descriptive, hands on, and knowledgeable! They always meet all of my needs always willing to go the extra mile to make me feel comfortable and heard! They answer so many of my phone calls to the point it’s probably annoying but they are always reassuring, kind, and caring!Stephanie W., Man she is amazing! She is the whole reason we have our son and another on the way! She meant with us regularly and diligently to figure out our infertility adventure! I can’t say enough good things about her!Lindsey is hands down the best ultrasound tech! I haven’t really scene anyone else but man! She is nothing but calm, excited for you, and full of knowledge and reassurance! She talks you through step by step and doesn’t miss a beat!Marianne Stroud! Again, I can’t say enough! She was a major advocate for our first birth and was nothing but reassuring, comforting, and full of knowledge! She literally meant us where we were at in some of the scariest moments right before delivery and calmed us down!All in all, I am so beyond blessed to be able to have such amazing doctors, midwives, and staff to care for me before, during, and after our pregnancies!
Emily M.
I had 3 out of 6 of my babies with them. Dr. Stroud office has been truly amazing and so caring during my pregnancies. They listen to your concerns and questions and answer them thoroughly and explained everything. If I could go back in time and change who delivered my older three I would in a heart beat choose Dr. Stroud office.
Whitney N.
I'm currently 37 weeks pregnant. A feat I thought would never happen for my husband and I after experiencing 3 previously unexplained losses. I was recommended this practice from a friend. I will forever owe her for sending me their way. Within 5 minutes of my first appointment they were able to see what was causing my losses based on tests that were ran by previous Dr's. That day I was prescribed the medicine that has made carrying my baby possible. Every midwife and physician I have met has been incredible. Becca and Rachel really stand out to me though. They are genuinely some of the nicest, most carrying people I've ever met in my life, and have made this experience so much easier on me. I would absolutely recommend fmcc to any woman who is experiencing fertility issues.
Pamela P.
I’m so incredibly grateful for all the staff at FMCC. From Kelly who was so helpful with transferring care, booking appointments, answering questions, and even insurance stuff to all the midwives, to Dr. Stroud who delivered our son. We moved to IN and I had been spotting from 12 weeks to 16 weeks but my old doctors wouldn’t look into why. If we would have stayed our son wouldn’t have make it. As soon as I walked into my first appointment a midwife prescribed progesterone right away and sure enough when the test came back my progesterone levels were extremely low. The next hurdle we crossed was my water breaking at 18.5 weeks. I stayed on bed rest till 22.5 weeks when I was admitted into the hospital spending a total of 9 weeks in there. A midwife or Dr. Stroud himself came to check up on me every day. We made it to 31weeks 2 days and our son was born emergency c-section. We spent 2 months in the NICU. Today our son is thriving! I’m so grateful for the care and emotional support I received from the staff here. In the midst of the scariest situation of our lives they showed they cared, valued life, and walked us through every step of the way. I could not recommend this place enough.
Amanda D.
Baby #1 born at DuPont with FMCC staff (thanks, Rachel!), and Lord willing, future babies born with them as well. Love their care and attentiveness at each visit.
