Me and my husband decided to start a family a year after we got married back in 2018. However due to diabetic complications, my husband struggled with his fertility and the Dr’s diagnosed him with retrograde ejaculation due to nerve damage. The NHS funded us and in 2020 after I lost the required weight we were referred to Nurture in Nottingham. We selected Nurture due to the success rates and an impressive open evening.
By taking my husband’s sperm from his urine to insert into my eggs (we even chose to purchase the embryo glue), they managed to achieve a grade A blastocyst which was placed back in me. What was really nice was my husband was allowed to sit with me when it was put back in. A few weeks later I got a positive pregnancy test and then in June ’21 we welcomed our baby girl Alice to the world by emergency c-section. She is a very healthy girl and a blessing to us and our family as she is the first grandchild for my parents and my husband’s parents.
Nurture have been brilliant. They kept us well informed and were really understanding. The whole team have been friendly and supportive. A big thank you to everybody at Nurture
