OUR STORY

Share your inspiring success story!
In 2014 I moved to Vietnam for a teaching position. During the thorough visa process, a local Vietnamese doctor diagnosed my uterine fibroids and suggested I consider taking action if I wanted to become a mom. I was in my early 30s and was not concerned at all. The doctor’s suggestion sparked my curiosity, and I began researching having a child on my own without a partner. I spent the next four years making my decision, and then I officially started the process once I landed my “dream job” back in the states as a middle school special education teacher. I shopped for the best insurance and was referred to BIVF by a friend who had had success with the help of Dr. Brian Berger. After all the planning and proving to insurance and that I was a good candidate, I was successful in my first round of IVF after four unsuccessful IUI s. I created three healthy embryos (BIVF created them!), and now, at the age of 39, I have my daughter Sage who is three days old, born in early 2022!
How did your boston ivf physician and nursing team help to make your journey a success?
Dr. Brian Berger took the time to really discuss the decision-making process of becoming a single mother by choice. He was available to discuss my long-term planning, timelines, and I never felt rushed in our conversations.
What were some highs or lows of your treatment(s)? What is unique/different about your story?
The highs of my journey outweighed the lows. Even though I went through 4 IUIs that were unsuccessful, I always stayed positive. Knowing I had the best team of professionals looking after my care, it was easy to trust the process!
What advice do you have for other struggling with infertility?
I put complete trust into the BIVF community after my first consultation with Dr. Berger. The care I received was consistent, caring, and transparent. My advice would be to stay true to your dreams and never stop believing that families come in all shapes and sizes. As a single mother by choice, my BIVF journey was elective, but that didn’t make it any less important. Now I have my daughter, who is three days old!
