IVF Patient Story: Sophie and Ben


Sophie and Ben’s IVF Story

In this IVF patient story, you can follow Sophie and Ben’s to parenthood: not one but two beautiful babies. Read on to explore how fertility experts here at the Centre for Reproductive and Genetic Health helped this couple achieve their dream of a family.

“When we got our date for egg collection, I was so nervous. I felt all this was what we had been working towards for weeks/months, and the pressure really was on, but I felt like I needed to keep positive. When we then made transfer day with three blastocysts, I felt relieved but knew we still had a long journey ahead of us.

“I was sedated at transfer, and then I remember feeling super sleepy after, but determined to get McDonald’s fries on route home (an IVF thing that is supposed to help implantation). I was willing to do anything to help these little embabies stick.

“The next few weeks felt like years, and the two-week wait was very tense, but when I saw a slight line on a pregnancy test, I think it was then I really started to believe this could be for real.

“And how lucky we were, these two little embabies stuck with us, and I still some days can’t believe they are mine.

“My experience during IVF at CRGH was amazing. I felt I was in the best hands I could be, and I felt I was guided well. The support from nurses, doctors, and admin staff was there, and I felt so safe there. I will be forever grateful to everyone at CRGH for making our dreams come true.”

“I will be forever grateful to everyone at CRGH for making our dreams come true.”
