Sunday Brian and I went to The Shard in London to meet with our very incredible IVF giver of life Penny, who with her incredible team all helped to create Amélie in Athens Greece just over 2 years ago....
SERUM IVF CLINIC are now hosting outreach clinics here in the UK, London and Dublin.
So more parents to be, from every walk of life, can have their first consultation
So many babies and new families have been created from that first consultation
I thank the universe for helping me find them in 2016
From our first consultation in Athens to transfer took 8 weeks, 37 weeks later Amélie was here
I now realise how very fortunate we were that our first attempt worked at age 49 years.
This had a lot to do with:
Grief can have a way of hiding deep within our bodies. On the outside we carry on as best we can, we are in disguise, people think we are coping OK and fine, but inside we have created a hurricane of blackness and depression, pockets of mental illness, self doubt, unimaginable heartache, where your whole body aches for that child, hatred of your body which has failed you.
Dads feel all this too, just as much, suffering in total silence, even though they did not carry the baby, they feel this soul crushing pain deep within their own masculinity. It really does take two people to make one life, everything is questioned, the answers can come in many subtle strange forms.
These feelings are all very real after a miscarriage or stillbirth.
I now know all this halts a new baby energy from coming through physically and spiritually, as our mounting pain blocks their path in every direction from the birthing experience we call life.
