Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Hi, thanks for stopping.
Myself and my girlfriend Amy have been trying for a baby for over 5 years now. We both love kids and dreamed of having a big family of our own, sadly this doesn't seem to be very likely without assistance.
After a year of trying, Amy fell pregnant and we where both over the moon! Honestly one of the happiest moments in my life. Sadly the pregnancy was ectopic and Amy was rushed in to hospital as she was in real danger of her Fallopian tube rupturing which can lead to dangerous complications.
The pregnancy was lost and Amy also had to have her tube removed. This dramatically reduced our chances of conceiving naturally.
We where both gutted and Amy was left feeling like a failure and that's one thing she is not. She is honestly one of the most giving people I've ever known and she means the world to me. Shes battled through month after month of disappointment, multiple miscarriages and four failed IVF cycles. I'm my eyes shes a legend (I may be biased).
She will make an awesome mother.
We've had 3 unsuccessful NHS IVF cycles and 1 private cycle that wiped out our savings.
We are asking for your help to raise funds for further investigation and another try.
After trying for so long for a family we now hope for just one, happy, healthy baby for us to dedicated our lives to.
This is the first time in my life I have reached out to people for this sort of help and I really don't know what to expect. Any help you can give will bring us that one step closer to trying again.
Thank you for taking the time read this and thank you for you help.
