Success Story: In Vitro Fertilization

4534543

My husband and I were married in October of 2012. We tried unsuccessfully for over 2 years to get pregnant. Because our families and friends knew this we obtained a lot of unwanted advice. My favorite one was to have a drink and just relax, that it would happen when we least expected it. For those going through the same infertility struggle, you know that this becomes your obsession. It takes over all of your being and before you know it you are eating and breathing different ways to get pregnant. You are counting down days until you are ovulating, eating foods that promote good fertile health, reading every article or blog on tips and helpful hints on how to get pregnant, the list goes on and on. There are also the bad days. Those are days when you find out someone close to you is pregnant and they weren’t even trying!  Having to pick yourself up off the floor and just keep moving towards your happiness is harder than most think. We felt we were at the end of our rope. That was until we were reffered to the Fertility Institute of New Jersey. They were outstanding from the minute we started our journey. Our initial meeting with Dr. Berin in September of 2014 was a new hope. I could now let my obsession go. I was in good hands and she assured me that I would have my baby. We went through 3 unsuccessful IUIs and in January of 2015 we geared up for our 1st round of IVF. I had prepared myself the best I could and left it all up to Dr. Berin. It was a success! Our miracle was born in October of 2015, 1 day after our wedding anniversary. We had come full circle and we had Dr. Berin and her outstanding staff to thank. Dr. Berin herself is a star and a beacon of hope.  Her staff is so outstanding and extremely important. They are the glue holding it all together. From the minute my husband and I walked in those doors we felt at home. The receptionist always knew our name and exactly where we were in our process. The nurses that were there before 6 am, even on the coldest and ugliest of mornings, always smiling and greeting you by name. They all made it so great that you forgot why you were sitting in a waiting room at 6 am with 20 other women. I will forever be thankful to Dr. Berin and her fabulous staff.
