Long-Awaited Child

Long-Awaited Child is the story of my 8 year journey to have a family of my own. Our journey began with trying to fall pregnant naturally, to trying IVF several times, to seeking foster care and adoption as an option & finally to surrogacy to have our long-awaited babies. I aspire to make the journey easier for others.

In my story I cover my personal emotions knowing the only option for me to have a baby was to use a donor egg and surrogate. Dealing with infertility can be a lonely and very sad time, I hope my story helps those going through a similar journey to not feel so alone plus to consider other options and not rely on IVF as the only answer. If we had given up after IVF failed in Australia we would not have our gorgeous twins and we are so thankful for your clinic and especially our Surrogate Mother for giving us our family. In my book I have also included some information and research we had done to make our journey easier to hopefully help others.

Before getting prepared for IVF treatment, you should ensure that you go for regular check-up with our doctor. You also need to take all the asked medicines that your doctor has prescribed. More importantly, you should also take your vitamins every day. Taking the medicine would reduce the risk of neural tube defects and you can get more success rate of pregnancy. You should also regulate moderate exercise, which will help in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

You can check your weight and you should have perfect body mass index, which will help improve your fertility dramatically. When you talk about preparing for IVF treatment, you should quit smoking. Both active and passive smoking is determined to your health and it can affect fertility for both men and women. You should also quit alcohol as heavy intake of alcohol can affect the sperm count production.
