My husband and I struggled with infertility for 3 years. It was a tough time that we were often quiet about. We went through 6 IUI’s, 3 miscarriages, 1 ectopic pregnancy, and 2 rounds of IVF to get our Sophie girl. 

The hardest part was wanting so badly to get pregnant so that my dad could meet his grandchild before he passed away. Unfortunately, this didn’t happen for us, but we know he helped us get Sophie, and he will forever watch over her.

We could not have gotten through these difficult times without the support of our family, close friends, and the team at Olive Fertility in Kelowna. They provided us with unconditional support during one of the toughest times of our lives and we are forever grateful to their team.

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.
