Dr. Molina Dayal

Medical Director, STL Fertility

Dr. Dayal is an angel of a doctor. Not only is she incredibly knowledgeable and professional, but she’s kind and listens to her patients. She administered every single ultrasound I had from start to finish.”

The entire practice is a gift to the St. Louis infertility community and I am convinced my son wouldn’t be here had I not had Dr. Dayal for a doctor.

Dr. Dayal strives to provide the most advanced, state-of-the-art fertility technology to patients while also providing them with a comfortable and safe environment. She always ensures that her colleagues and staff members feel the same, while aiming for the most personalized and individualized treatment available in the region.

Dr. Dayal completed her undergraduate (B.A) and medical degrees from The Johns Hopkins University. Her interest in understanding women’s health on a population level prompted her to complete an intensive one-year Master’s in Public Health at The Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health.

Originally from Washington, D.C., she first moved to St. Louis for her Obstetrics and Gynecology residency at Washington University in St. Louis, where she served as an Administrative Chief Resident during her last year of residency.

Dr. Dayal then completed her three-year fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility in Philadelphia, at the University of Pennsylvania. During this time, she authored and presented a Prize Paper at the American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM).

After completion of her training, Dr. Dayal joined the academic faculty at George Washington University where she treated patients, taught medical students and residents, and performed cutting-edge clinical research.

Despite winning the prestigious Association of Professors of Gynecology and Obstetrics (APGO) Excellence Award for Teaching, she realized that her primary passion was taking care of patients and helping them from infertility to family.  She returned to St. Louis to become the Medical Director at SIRM, now STL Fertility.

In her twenty years of practicing reproductive health, she has helped thousands of patients achieve successful outcomes and fulfill their dreams of family. While she is interested in all aspects of reproductive health, Dr. Dayal’s areas of interest and expertise include optimizing IVF outcomes, recurrent pregnancy loss, male factor infertility, fertility preservation, diminished ovarian reserve, and autoimmune disorders.

She strives to provide the most advanced, state-of-the-art fertility technology to patients while also providing them with a comfortable and safe environment.

Dr. Maureen Schulte

Operations Director, STL Fertility

After searching for the best doctor in St. Louis to help grow our family, I finally found Dr. Moe. After my first consultation I knew things would be different with her and her team.

Not only did she listen to me, but made a plan specific to us. We are so lucky and just welcomed our baby into this world a few weeks ago. I couldn’t recommend the STL Fertility team more.

Dr. Schulte, or “Moe” as everyone calls her, has an avid interest in research and education, focusing on translational research that impacts patients.
