Dr George, George, Calling Dr George

Featured

After our first round of IVF failed, we were at a loss as to what to do next. I had been told lots about the Zita West Fertility Clinic and, in particular, Dr George Ndukwe - who is a pioneer in immune therapy and Natural Killer Cells. I knew we had to see him. This is the first part of our journey with this clinic. It still wasn't an easy journey and came with its fair share of heartache but, ultimately, the amazing team at Zita West helped us start our family, resulting in our darling daughter.

I ‘ VF Failed

Featured

I'VF Failed. After an already gruelling journey trying to start a family, we finally reached a point whereby IVF was our next option. We were petrified, not having any real understanding about what we were going to go through. In this blog, I talk about our first round of IVF and the devastation IVF failure leaves behind. It's part of our story and our journey towards later IVF success. I hope, very much, that it helps others, who have experienced similar, to know that their feelings and emotions are normal and that they are not alone. I am also hopeful that this honest account will give a little understanding to those have not experienced IVF for themselves in order to support those who do. Click the title above to read more...

When They’re Expecting and You’re Not

Other people's pregnancy announcements were the hardest. I viewed everyone (even those I didn't know) with severe trepidation, as I was petrified that I would be caught off guard and be brutally thumped in the gut with a severe case of 'pregnancy announcement-itis'. Spending a long time recalling how I felt during this time, I have tried to share some of how I felt in these moments in addition to considering what it can be like coming from the other side of things too.

Breaking the Silence

Featured

I don't think I am ever going to be able to find the exact words I want to entirely explain how miscarriage and baby loss makes you feel. It's unique. Those who suffer miscarriage and baby loss can only truly understand the boundless heartache and emptiness it brings, along with the silence that surrounds it. By writing about it, I'm aiming to break some of that silence and help others to gain a little more knowledge as to how someone might feel. I am also hopeful that this might provide a little comfort to others, going through similar, knowing that they are not alone. Click the title above to read more...

Our Mis’conception’

Welcome to my first blog post sharing my experiences surrounding infertility and parenthood after infertility. I have no idea whether this is a good idea but I thought I would try it out - whilst juggling my 16 week old 'much wanted' daughter at the same time...not literally juggling her...you know what I mean!
