We now have a beautiful little girl, Hannah!
‘We had been trying for a baby for 2 years and were on the waiting list for IVF when we read about the Life FertilityCare programme in a newspaper article. We contacted the Centre and started the programme.
We did get to the top of the IVF waiting list but decided to stay with the Life FertilityCare programme for a number of reasons:
— Most importantly, the Life FertilityCare programme fitted our ethical views, as committed Christians we were very unhappy with the idea of excess embryos being either stored or destroyed. In the Life FertilityCare programme eggs are fertilised naturally so there is no excess.
— Also in the Life FertilityCare programme you are treated as individuals rather than as a set of symptoms. The team are available to discuss options with you and listen to your views. At the IVF clinic, the nurse was very surprised when we asked about alternatives!
— The Life FertilityCare programme also considers all aspects of lifestyle that may affect your fertility, rather than concentrating on ‘curing’ the symptoms. We also had counselling to discuss how we would cope if the programme was unsuccessful.
Finally, in the Life FertilityCare programme you have a team of people who know you as a person and are willing to talk through any problems at any time. This support helps reduce the stress involved with infertility.
In our case Life FertilityCare programme was successful and we now have a beautiful little girl. We are now back on the programme to try for another child and having gone through the programme and knowing what was wrong in the first place we are hopeful that we can be successful again.’
