We are #1in6.
We waited to try and have children until we felt like everything was in place. We had careers, were married and home owners. But by that time we were well into our 30’s and nothing happened. We were referred to Olive and had some testing done. They told that we had very low egg count and the likelihood of conceiving naturally was very low. At that point we stepped back and took some time off from our infertility struggles.
After almost a year off we were ready to restart our journey to try and have a family. We decided that an egg donor was our best option and we met with our doctor at Olive to discuss our next steps. We decided the Assured Program was the best option for us.
There were a lot of up and downs on our journey. However we were blessed with a baby girl on our first embryo transfer.
We have since had an embryo transfer which did not result in pregnancy and have one frozen embryo left.
Inclusion of all gender and sexually diverse people is an important value of Olive Fertility Centre. We are continuously striving to create an environment of compassionate belonging where all of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community are supported, valued and respected.
