- In vitro Fertilization (IVF)
Erica & William's Story:
I have three children. My firstborn, a son, was conceived naturally and very quickly. When I wanted to expand my family, I assumed it would be just as easy to get pregnant again.
We decided we wanted one more baby to complete our family so we tried naturally for one year. We then reached back out to CNY for help!
I went through 8 cycles of IUI, with two of those cycles ending in miscarriages early on in the pregnancy (6-8 weeks). The miscarriages really took a toll on me. But I finally decided to try and go the IVF route. I got pregnant with my second son in one cycle. I transferred one embryo, and he was the magic one! He completed our family.
I later donated my five remaining embryos to someone in need to help them along their journey to parenthood! CNY made it all possible for my husband and I to expand our family!
