Erin and Roberto

I always wanted to be a mom and never would have believed it would be such a challenge for me to become one. I know what it’s like to go into the clinic multiple times a week hoping for good news every time. Feeling hopeless in the middle of a cycle that isn’t going how I wanted it to.

2 years of trying naturally, one egg retrieval, 4 embryo transfers that lead us to our sweet girl born May 2021.

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.

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.

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.
