Welcome From Emelia A. Bachman, MD, Director of Fertility Preservation
I’m delighted to be part of Reproductive Associates of Delaware as the Director of Fertility Preservation. I pride myself on treating each patient like she or he is my own family member, so I feel very fortunate to be part of a practice that shares this same philosophy of care.
Starting out as a medical student, I was fascinated by both the science behind infertility and the ability to help people start families. It is incredibly special to take care of a woman throughout her life as both a clinician and surgeon. As a fertility specialist, it is especially rewarding to share in the joy our patients feel when they conceive. I believe the key to success is determining the cause of our patients’ infertility, and together, coming up with an effective treatment plan that they are comfortable with. I am passionate about educating my patients on how their body works and the rationale behind the many tests and treatments we offer.
As Director of the Fertility Preservation program, I look forward to helping patients preserve their reproductive health for the future. Whether they are considering egg or embryo banking for medical or personal reasons, our patients are in good hands as RAD has established excellent egg freezing techniques. Fertility Preservation is an emerging area of reproductive medicine, so it is very exciting to be on the cutting edge of this new technology.
I look forward to meeting you and helping your dream of having a family become a reality.

"We had a wonderful experience working with Reproductive Associates of Delaware. Our doctor was so sweet, informative and helpful with all of our questions. The front desk, it’s always nice to be greeted by a friendly smiling face."
"RAD heard my hopes, dreams, and wishes and led me toward them while holding my hand. My dream came true. I was guided to a beautiful baby girl! It took less than a year for my pregnancy to begin and it was successful. This was the best decision I ever made. Thank you, RAD!"
"From the beginning our team was determined to find a way for my husband and I to complete our family. All the RAD staff was knowledgeable and truly cared for us. We wish we could have continued with them after our baby hit 12 weeks. We thank them daily in our prayers for giving us our beautiful baby girl!"
"We will be forever grateful for the wonderful care we received at RAD! Dr. Feinberg took the time to listen and create a plan we were comfortable with. The whole team was amazing and truly care about their patients. You have exceeded our expectations. Thank you!!"
"Thanks to Reproductive Associates of Delaware, we have the most perfect addition to our family. The help and support the whole staff gave us was indescribable. We never once lost hope because of them. We will be forever grateful to each and every person we worked with during our journey."
"Dr. Neithardt was amazing. She explained in great detail all the options we had and put us at ease about the entire process. Everyone has been amazing and I have absolutely no complaints. Today I am 17 weeks pregnant and we only have Dr. Neithardt and her wonderful team at RAD to thank."
"They are the most amazing team of doctors and care coordinators. After having started at another facility I was so happy to come to RAD. They are truly amazing, never make you feel like just a number and have empathy and compassion every step of the way. They also get the job done! Thanks RAD!"
"Dr. McGuirk is a very holistic doctor. She doesn’t just treat the fertility issues. She also points out personal health ideas (juicing, whole 30) to help heal/treat the whole patient. She is honest and open. Be open minded and trust in her process. This is a marathon, not a sprint! Dr. McGuirk will be with you the whole way."
"I will never be able to put into words how thankful we are for RAD. Rhonda was there every step of the way as we were going through the process. Everyone was so welcoming and patient as we asked questions. We were blessed with a daughter, who is now three. I have already recommended and will continue to recommend RAD to people who need help growing their family!"
"There are not enough kind words to say about RAD generally, and Dr. Bachman specifically. My personal well-being was always at the core of my treatment. I received honest, straight-forward advice that empowered me to make my own decisions. And thanks to RAD I have the family I always dreamed of."
