We started our IVF journey on March 12, 2013. I have PCOS and don’t ovulate. We had tried on our own to get pregnant, unsuccessfully, for 7 years. We had made an appointment to see Dr. Levine after friends of ours recommended him. After going through my medical files, he suggested going straight to IVF because that was my best option. My embryo transfer was on April 17, 2013 and 9 days later, we received a phone call from a very ecstatic Dr. Levine telling us that we were pregnant! And on December 20, 2013, I gave birth to a beautiful and healthy 6lb 3oz baby boy! I still smile and get teary when I think about it.
It’s kind of a scary process when you don’t know what to expect but from the very beginning the entire staff at the FINJNY treated us like family. That was really important to us. Everyone answered our questions and addressed our worries and concerns like they we were walking through this together, like how you would talk to your mom or sister. We will be eternally grateful to them for giving us the family we dreamed about.
