Patients sharing from the heart

Alyssa and Brandon Briere

Me and my husband started working with Dr. Wise in 2017. Our journey to becoming parents was definitely not a short one, but one that we never gave up on.

Lauren and Kelsey

From day one, we knew without a doubt that we wanted to be parents. We were both so passionate about the idea of raising children, and the love we had found in one another just deepened so dramatically once we began discussing our options for starting a family.

Shayna

I underwent egg retrieval/freezing in July of 2021. From the very beginning, the staff at Olive was absolutely incredible. I had flown to Vancouver from Northern BC and was staying alone to do all of my injections since my husband wasn’t able to attend due to the current COVID regulations. The first shot was the scariest but it gave me an immense amount of confidence for the subsequent shots that were required for retrieval.⁠

The Smiths

Our journey to parenthood still feels surreal. Infertility is a rollercoaster that you don’t want to be on, taking you slowly up each hill and barreling you down, only to climb another. Initially when my husband and I started trying to grow our family, we “didn’t stress” (which ended up being the most common and unwelcome piece of advice offered by well-meaning friends). When we didn’t get pregnant after a few months of trying, I tried not to worry even though I was desperately afraid that something was wrong.

Natalie

Like many middle class educated professional women, I was unable to find a suitable mate. I spent my 30s pining for Mr Right, so I could get on with creating a family much like the one I grew up in. After some challenging relationships my 40th birthday marked a turning point in my search. I was no longer going to look for “him” I was going to create my own family.

Gladys and John

John and I met in 2002 and got married in May 2004. We started building our dream together of having a family and building lots of memories with our children. We tried getting pregnant for years with no success. After consulting different doctors we found out that I have Polycystic Ovaries, which is the main reason why I couldn’t get pregnant.

The Majors

After almost 5 years of trying to conceive and working with doctors, plus 4 failed rounds of IUI we looked at the thought of proceeding down the journey of In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). Neither Bryce or I had anything medically wrong that prevented us from having children or impacted the process, it just simply wasn't going to happen on its own.
