Sara and Chris’s story

Two weeks later we were over the moon to discover a positive line on the pregnancy test.

My husband (Chris) and I started our fertility journey in January 2016 after trying for a baby for over a year with no success. Several tests later I found out my Fallopian tubes were blocked. I was devastated that I would not be able to conceive. Our consultant told us that having my tubes removed and doing  IVF was the best way forward. That’s when we went to Nurture. We were so impressed at the information evening and couldn’t wait to get going after my laparoscopy.  In January 2017 we started our treatment.  Due to severe endometriosis I was put on a long protocol. My husband was amazing and did all the injections for me. I didn’t get many eggs (4 mature) but we ended up putting two day 5 embryos back in. Two weeks later we were over the moon to discover a positive line on the pregnancy test.  When I started bleeding on the same day as my positive test I feared the worst and worried until the first scan at 7 weeks.  We were relieved and delighted when we saw a fetal heartbeat and our tiny baby!  We had our miracle baby girl Isabelle Rose in October 2017 at 35 weeks.  She was 5lb1oz and perfect. The IVF process was full of ups and downs and it certainly wasn’t easy but it was worth it.  We will forever be thankful to those at Nurture who helped us through our journey.
