A Little Miracle Sent From Above. A baby Girl To Cuddle And Love

After spending a decade together, Amy and her husband finally tied the knot and eagerly started their journey towards parenthood. They were overjoyed when they conceived naturally, but sadly, Amy experienced a heartbreaking miscarriage. Determined to expand their family, they spent a year trying to conceive again, but faced disappointment. Amy underwent four rounds of intrauterine insemination, hoping for success, but unfortunately, none of the attempts resulted in a pregnancy. Undeterred, they decided to explore in vitro fertilization, but despite their hopes, it didn't yield the desired outcome. Amy and her husband, Marty, were absolutely crushed by the devastating effects of these pricey treatments. They were filled with uncertainty and fear, worried that their hard-earned savings would be drained without the joy of having a child to show for it. Adding to their distress, they didn't feel a strong connection with their current doctor. After experiencing five heart-wrenching failed attempts at assisted reproductive technology, Amy felt an urgent need to take matters into her own hands. She embarked on a mission to research and find a new doctor who could bring a fresh perspective and a renewed sense of hope to their journey. After Amy had met her new doctor, Dr. Bareh, Amy's heart told her that Dr. Bareh was the one. When Dr. Bareh took the time to thoroughly review her records from the previous clinic and spent an entire hour discussing her situation, Amy was taken aback. She never anticipated such personalized attention and care. It was truly unexpected and incredibly reassuring. Dr. Bareh suggested trying IVF again, which is the most advanced and successful assisted reproductive technology. Dr. Bareh's initial plan was for Amy to take supplements for three months to increase her chances of success. During her IVF treatment, they obtained six or seven viable embryos.Unfortunately, the embryo transfer resulted in a chemical pregnancy. This early-stage pregnancy is characterized by the presence of the hCG hormone indicating implantation, but the embryo does not continue to develop. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Amy had to delay further treatment. As a COVID nurse, she understood the need to prioritize public health and put her family plans on hold. It was heartbreaking to wait another year for the next transfer, but Amy and her husband trusted Dr. Bareh and were willing to be patient. After a year passed, Amy went through another transfer, but unfortunately, it resulted in a miscarriage. As a result, when it was time for her third transfer at LLU Center for Fertility, Amy felt hesitant and was on the verge of giving up. The seven previous failures had caused immense heartache for the couple and had began to take a toll on their marriage. However, Dr. Bareh started Amy on Lovenox and Prednisone. The protocol change for Amy's third transfer was a success, and she became pregnant! However, she had been unsure whether to get her hopes up since she had experienced a previous pregnancy loss. When she saw that her hCG levels were strong, Amy felt a mix of excitement and fear of another loss. Amy's faith helped her stay positive throughout the process. She will always remember how Dr. Bareh referred to the early-stage embryo as the "baby" during her ultrasound, despite its small size. Amy’s baby is now a little over a year old, and she and her husband Marty are eternally grateful for everyone who stuck beside them and now their beautiful baby girl. Amy is grateful for her blessing, but she and her husband have decided not to pursue another baby. The medications have taken a toll on her body, and she wants to avoid the pain of another miscarriage. They have stored their remaining embryos, and Amy is considering the possibility of donating them. She feels fortunate to have been able to afford the treatment and receive care from Dr. Bareh. When sharing advice with others on the fertility journey, Amy suggests, "Be kind to yourself and hold onto hope." She emphasizes the importance of leaning on your partner and maintaining open communication to address fears. Amy expresses deep gratitude towards Dr. Bareh for never giving up on her, even when she had lost faith in herself. Amy is so grateful she was able to capture her baby girl’s first few days of the wonderful life ahead of her with Andriana Dyakova’s help, who she says took some of the most beautiful maternity and newborn photos she’s seen. She’ll have these newborn memories to cherish forever and is so happy she’s able to share her story with other parents who may be experiencing something similar to encourage them and let them know they will get through it and it will all be worth it in the end.
