I had a complicated delivery with my first child that resulted in an emergency hysterectomy. We had our second child through surrogacy. I’d love to meet for coffee or chat and help with any questions you may have about the surrogacy process or IVF treatment.
My husband and I have been married for six years in May. We have battled infertility for over a couple of years now, and we both have diagnoses that contribute to it. Through all of the treatments we have experienced (IUIs and INVOcell IVF), this journey has brought us both so much closer to Christ. This season has taught us that the LORD wants to grow us, even in the winter seasons of life, so we can bear fruit in so many different areas.
I had a hard time getting pregnant with our 7 year old miracle boy, Braxton and have been trying to have another child for a while. As hard as this has been I have experienced the Lord and his goodness throughout our journey to grow our family. I would love the opportunity to share my story with you and how the Lord has brought me so much peace in the pain.
I walked the infertility journey for over 3 years & during that time we were given multiple diagnoses and a small chance we'd ever conceive on our own. Failed treatment after failed treatment, I began to doubt that the desire in my heart to be a mother was from God. When I finally came to the end of myself, He knocked me off of my feet and blessed me beyond measure.
After the birth of our first son, we lost our second child at 28 weeks. The delivery of our stillborn daughter was the most difficult experience I had ever faced. Almost 3 years later, we joyously welcomed another son. Later, we discovered we were pregnant with twins which ended in a loss at almost 14 weeks. Despite our losses, my husband and I deeply treasure every moment with our boys.
Married at age 21, my husband and I decided we wanted to have children as soon as possible. Through multiple tests, surgery and treatment we found I had endometriosis and don't ovulate normally. My husband Jon has low testosterone/low sperm count so our journey has been a very joint one. We continue to seek the Lord and medical treatment and God has been good to us through it!
Fertility issues affect men directly and indirectly, and often times we don't talk about them because of our pride. My wife and I hoed a tough row and the pain, both physical & emotional, was tough to bear. But God had a different plan for us, it just revealed itself on His schedule and not our calendar.
I walked infertility for 7 years. I suffered 1 ectopic pregnancy & 3 miscarriages before losing my first daughter to an incompatible with life diagnosis at 21.5 weeks. I went on to have a stillbirth at 38.5 weeks with my 2nd. God blessed me with our 7th child - 3rd daughter, only one here earthside, with no fertility treatments in May of 2021. I've learned so much about my faith and God's goodness through my losses and I would love to share and support you as you walk the journey you are on!
My infertility journey has been filled with multiple miscarriages & failed IVF transfers. In the early years of infertility, I was ill-equipped to handle the trials alone. My faith was stagnant, & I was angry at my circumstances. Connecting with other women who shared similar experiences served as a source of light & comfort during some of the darkest times. These friends have encouraged me, prayed for me, & continued to influence my faith in ways I could never have grown on my own.
We struggled with secondary infertility for 4 and 1/2 years and never got a clear answer as to why we were having trouble getting pregnant. We traveled all over to meet with doctors trying to find an answer. After 7 IUIs, surgeries, and 5 IVFs and lots of prayer, we found out we were pregnant with a baby boy! We now have 2 boys: a 6 year old and a 6 month old. God is good!
I was able to become pregnant with my firstborn son naturally. When we started trying for our second, we turned to 4 years of secondary infertility & many attempts at IVF, finally resulting in a successful twin pregnancy. I struggled in my relationship with God during that time and later joined a Carrywell group when my twins were 4, because my heart still needed healing & understanding. I’m so grateful that I did.
I walked through unexplained infertility for 9 years. After working with a local infertility doctor undergoing 11 IUI treatments and 3 failed IVF transfers, my husband and I felt it was time to make a change. We traveled to NYC to see a doctor at Weill Cornell as our “last ditch effort”. There, God blessed us with TWENTY healthy embryos. Sadly, we had an unsuccessful transfer and had to fly home due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We decided to do one more transfer with our local doctor since we couldn’t travel to NYC. The transfer worked and we have been blessed with a healthy baby boy.
My husband and I have been going through infertility for almost 2.5 years & counting. After one chemical pregnancy, one miscarriage with a precious baby girl and an ectopic pregnancy not even 5 months later, we have grown closer to the Lord more than ever. It is organizations and communities like this that encourage you and support you during this difficult journey you are walking. It's through the small groups and connections from this organization that we have learned to lean into the Lord and trust His plan and His timing.
My husband and I deal with male factor infertility. Within a few months of trying for our first baby, the Lord made it clear to me that we would need help getting pregnant. He put several IVF and infertility resources in my path early on in our journey (including this organization!) that bolstered my faith. We were blessed with our son Sam via IVF in October 2021 and hope to expand our family again in the future.
Me and my husband experienced an early miscarriage between our two daughters and in the summer of 2021, we walked through the loss of our 3rd daughter due to placental insufficiency. There was an immediate peace that truly passes all understanding when we received the news. We have since welcomed a miracle baby boy and are thankful for The Lord and His provision over our lives!
