Elizabeth was born in March
‘When Michael and I started trying for a family, we hoped that it would be only a matter of time before I fell pregnant. As the years went by and it didn’t happen, we were devastated.
For us, it was the total lack of control over something which all our friends seem to find so simple that was the hardest thing to cope with.
The LIFE FertilityCare Programme gave us back some of that control. The Programme taught me to be more aware of my cycle, highlighted potential issues and recommended actions to address them.
But more than that, the help and support provided by the team whilst we were trying to conceive was invaluable. Infertility is such a sensitive subject, but we found everyone on the team friendly, caring and sympathetic to our needs.
We are truly grateful to them. Without their help, our beautiful little girl probably wouldn’t be here. Elizabeth was born in March. Now already 6-months-old (I can’t believe how quickly the time has flown by!), she is an absolute joy to be around – so content.
My mother-in-law often comments that this is due to the fact that “I carried her so well”, meaning that I was so pleased to be pregnant – which I was, of course.
And whilst I think that it’s a lovely thing to say, I think we are just incredibly lucky! For so many reasons . . .’
