August Baby of the Month: Meet McKenzie
“My husband and I got married at a young age, but decided we would wait to have children until we were both done with school and felt prepared. After 9 years together and both of us graduating from college, with our careers started, we decided we were ready to start our family. However, things did not go as planned. After a year and a half of trying, we decided to seek help.
After both of us went through extensive testing, blood work, and specialist visits, there were still no answers as to why I wasn’t pregnant yet. We were extremely frustrated and confused at this point. It seemed that everywhere we looked, people were getting pregnant and having children. We were both young and healthy. What was wrong with us? After talking to Dr. Brown, we decided that IVF would be our best option.
After two more months of doctors’ appointments, blood work, medications, worries, and tears, we were able to see our little miracle’s heartbeat. And we were also relieved to find out that we had several more embryos available for future siblings for our little one. Our baby girl is now almost 9 months old. Her personality and laughter fill our life with a happiness we didn’t know existed. We would not be where we are today if it wasn’t for Dr. Brown and his staff, and the support from our family and friends. McKenzie is the best thing to ever happen to us and I am thankful every single day that we reached out to Brown Fertility when we did. ”
