Hi there! We saw your post about sharing a story for the #1in6 who struggle with infertility.
Our names are Delaney (@d_laney19) and Samara (@sbush739) and our journey started in November of 2020. As a same sex couple, we have struggled with social infertility and we were thrilled to start our journey to address this and begin our family with @olivefertility! There’s an abundance of emotional, financial, physical, and mental energy involved with the process and Olive has been a wonderful support through it all. We have a fairly small circle of friends/family, so having a great relationship with theteam has been a massive help.
While we are just now at the stage where we have selected a donor, most people are surprised to hear just how much we have been through already to get to this point. Bloodwork, testing, appointments, counseling, donor searches -so much goes on behind the scenes that one wouldn’t know until they’ve been through it.
Our story is only just beginning.
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.
