My first pregnancy was over 10 years ago. At the time, my husband and I decided to wait a few more years to have our second child. We planned to start trying for our second by the time our first son turned four. Unfortunately, life doesn’t always go according to plan. As time passed and nothing was happening, we decided to just let it go. Life got in the way and I rationalized my inability to conceive naturally by telling myself “This is God’s plan . . .” I tried to stay grateful for our one son.
Hope Finds A Way
My husband supported me in every decision. He also always told me to never give up and we decided to go see a specialist. I did not know where to start. My regular OBGYN suggested that we get an hCG test to check for any potential tubal blockage. The test ended up showing everything was normal. That’s when the frustration set in. Everything seemed to suggest that stress was playing a role, or maybe our timing was just off. I started to think of every worst case scenario and convinced myself to move on.
Just when I was about to give up, I bumped into a co-worker who announced that she was expecting her second child. I was ecstatic and very happy for her. She respectfully asked me when I was having another. My heart sank, but I looked her straight in the eye and told her all the trouble we were having trying to conceive. The discussion turned out to be very therapeutic and exactly what I needed to regain my faith. Magically, she mentioned to me that she also experienced issues with secondary infertility. As I listened to her story, I could feel my faith and hope slowly returning, saying to myself, “Go for it. Don’t give up. It will happen!” She then advised me to Google Dr. Zhang and New Hope Fertility Center. It would turn out to be the most important discoveries I’ve ever made.
Today, my husband and I are now four months pregnant after just one Mini-IVF™ cycle and a single embryo transfer! Our experience at New Hope was seamless and organized from the initial consult to our fresh embryo transfer. The billing process was also smooth. There were no surprises or last minute hidden charges. We felt safe and secure knowing the financial aspect was so well taken care of. We didn’t want to stress about cost during such a sensitive time and we felt relieved when we knew exactly what to expect financially.
I cannot stress enough how much I appreciated the detailed, concise, and clear instructions by the staff of assistants, nurses, and doctors. This put me at ease both physically and mentally during the entire process. Every single procedure, medicine dosage, appointment change, and verification was done professionally, promptly, and clearly. None of my questions went unanswered. I never felt like I was left waiting because my fertility care team always responded to my e-mails and clarified anything I was confused about. I also felt and appreciated the special attention. I felt the service was personalized and they really cared. Dr. Zhang always advised on what was best for me and my treatment plan.
Thanks to New Hope we’ve been given the chance to give my baby boy a sibling. New Hope gave me and my husband the hope we needed – the best gift ever! Thank you. – Mike R. and Jenny R. – January 2020
