My partner and i, would love to have another child. In 2013, we were eagerly awaiting to be the proud parents of a beautiful baby boy, who we named harvey. He was absolutley beautiful and perfect in every way. However, he was born far too soon and returned to the angels. Our lives fell apart. We never thought we would be okay again. I never realised the power of love. How it can tear you apart but also help to heal again. We found this out just over a year later, with the safe arrival of our beautiful daughter, izabella.
When izabella was around a year old, we knew that we still had so much love to give, so decided to try for another baby. A baby brother or sister for izabella :) Unfortunatly after 2 years of trying with no success, we went to the doctor who confirmed that concieving naturally may not be an option. For the past year, we have been back and forth to the fertility clinic, trying different medications and procedures to no avail. We have now exhausted all other options and are left with just one. Surgery and IVF.
There are different stages to treatment that we need. The three most expensive parts being;
▪surgical sperm retrievel. £4000
▪IVF requiring ICSI. £3700
▪Freezing & storing embryos upto 1year. £3400 (Incase it doesnt work the first time).
Other costs include:
▪Initial consultation. £150
▪Consent appointment. £180
▪Embryo thawing and transfer. £900
If i had that sort of money, i would pay it in a heartbeat. But i just dont, so i have turned to crowdfunding and i hope and pray that some wonderful people can help us achieve our dreams. We would be eternally grateful xx
