*sensitive - birth announcement*


Hi everyone!

I seriously can’t believe I’m finally able to write this post after 6 years of ttc, 3 surgeries, 3 rounds of ivf, 8 embryo transfers and a miscarriage - but I’ve finally gone and done it!

I’m at home with my baby in my arms writing this post with tears in my eyes - tears of happiness for my miracle and tears of gratitude and empathy for everyone on this forum who has supported me emotionally on my journey, educated me on ivf, and is still going strong on their own journey.

Ladies on here posting about their babies seemed like ‘other people’, lucky people, people that weren’t me...yet here I now am, one of those lucky people. So it can happen to YOU too. Please don’t give up, please keep a positive mindset, please keep telling yourself it will happen, please be your own cheerleader.

Here is Fabian Jude Ashton.

He was born Monday 24th Feb weighing 7lbs 15oz and he is unbelievably perfect and we are so in love xxxxxxx

Omg scarlett!!! What wonderful news!

I had no idea you had even had a BFP after and just managed to come across this by accident

I'm so so happy for you! Looking back at your posts it seems progesterone support really was the key?

I'm glad I kept banging on about progesterone levels last year - it is so so key and so poorly understood by clinics it's frankly disgusting - why haven't they figured this stuff out when it's so easy(& cheap!) To measure and correct.

Your little one looks gorgeously healthy, so happy for you and just what I needed before we start ivf again - a sprinkle of hope xx

in reply to Saya85

Thank you so much xxxx so glad you’re going again, good luck! Progesterone was totally the game changer for me for sure and I agree that clinics should be testing everyone and be right on it! Hope to see your happy news soon xxx

Congratulations on the birth of your beautiful boy! Thank you for sharing your inspiring journey with us!

I had my son I conceived through IVF in October. Being a mum is a true joy, but can also be very stressful. After my challenging postpartum experience, I was inspired to find a way for others who had experienced infertility and pregnancy loss to connect and continue to support each other in our journeys to motherhood. Now I'm the new ambassador for the community healthunlocked.com/baby-and-us

If this sounds like something you'd be interested it, we'd love for you to check it out. Xx

Congratulations! Such a cutie xx

Congrats 😍 he’s beautiful xxx
