Messages of Hope is a collection of inspirational IVF and Natural Fertility Story’s that some of our patients have been happy to share as a way of giving hope to other women and couples going through fertility issues. We also have a number of albums in the clinic waiting room with the same story’s found on our website, but included are some additional story’s from patients who wished to remain more private about their journey and share only with other patients in the clinic. The IVF and fertility journey is different for everyone, some describing it best as a rollercoaster. The length of the struggle or number of miscarriages a patient may have experienced is never an indicator of measuring one persons struggle to another. The feelings of anxiety, frustration, worry, grief, loss and sadness can all compromise your ability to cope on different levels. Reading something inspirational is uplifting for everyone, and most touching when the story resinates to something similar you have experienced. One of the main focuses we have in the clinic is not just helping create a change physically for our patients but to help them mentally and emotionally to be able to continue on their journey with a renewed sense of hope and optimism. We like to think of it as starting a new chapter, starting acupuncture treatment for the first time, new focus on diet and lifestyle, adding in some nutritional supplements never used before, is all a way of taking some control back of things you can do to help give yourself the best chance possible. The Messages, along with the treatment Sandra provides patients has been able to do just that, give hope. Some of the story’s are what we would all consider amazing miracles. In reading the stories, we hope that if you don’t find a story similar to your own journey, that you will still find hope in the fact that it can happen for you too and its never too late to try.
