News Release

 

Dr. Lamb is board certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology and Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology. She is a fellow of The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology and a member of American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM). Her work has been honored by numerous awards, publications, and national presentations. She was the honored recipient of the Joseph Yon, MD award for outstanding surgical skill, humor, and humanity. While studying International Women’s Health on a Fulbright scholarship at the University of Zimbabwe School of Medicine, she worked with women struggling from the harsh cultural aspects of infertility.

Her interests continue to span ethnic disparities in IVF, fertility preservation, environmental toxins and the effects on fertility, and improving IVF outcomes in women with diminished ovarian reserve and advanced age. She is passionate about helping patients access affordable care and take control of their fertility. She helped launch the PNWF Donor Egg Bank, one of the first oocyte banks in the country. “With very high success rates, this is an excellent option for women seeking pregnancy outside of their optimal fertility window”. Dr. Lamb also counsels new fertility patients in a program called, Fertility 101, a free evening seminar that covers fertility testing and treatment options.

Originally from Issaquah, Dr. Lamb moved back to the Seattle area with her husband and three sons in 2010 where she joined Pacific Northwest Fertility. Of her passion for helping patients complete their families, Dr. Lamb says, “I never tire of the thrill of witnessing new life beginning.”
