Worth the Wait

.st0{fill:#FFD162;}

It’s been a year now since that journey and we had our healthy baby boy. We’re forever grateful for the blessing that God has given us.

Growing up in a traditional Filipino family I thought having my own family someday is as easy as 1-2-3.

Finish school and find a fulfilling and well-paid job.

Find a good & responsible guy that will eventually be my husband and get married.

And of course last but not the least talking about the birds and the bees.

Fortunately and thank God I had a smooth sailing step 1 and step 2. I met my husband when we were at the peek of our career. We were both YUPPIES enjoying everything life has to offer from good career opportunities to happy love life. We got married when we were 32 and we took our time in building our happy family.

But 2 years had passed and were still waiting for our bundle of joy. Our families and friends are a bit worried since were both turning 35 and I might have a hard time getting pregnant because of my age. So we sought medical help from Dr. Greg Pastorfide. Of course, before consulting him I did a lot of research about getting pregnant through Artificial insemination and IVF.

Dr. Pastorfide explained all the probable cause why can’t we have a baby. We had several tests done I had my blood drawn at the second day of my period. I had ultrasound to check my reproductive system and hubby had semen analysis. All our tests came out normal so its unexplained why can’t we have a baby. We had four (4) failed artificial insemination.

I thought that was the end. But finally, we decided to do IVF. It’s not an easy way to have a baby because of my fear of the unknown. But I’m really glad that Dr. Pastorfide was like a father to us he answers our questions and remove our doubts. He’s even the one who injects my medications. And after 12 days of waiting I had my egg retrieval.

According to Dr. Pastorfide they harvested 12 eggs and injected 10. From the 10 I had 9 good embryos. I had 3 embryos transferred at Day 3 and 6 frozen. After 2 weeks of waiting I had my B-hcg blood test. Hubby and me waited about an hour at Victory Art for the result. It was one of the happiest days of our life. My B-Hcg value was 730.11.When the staff of Victory art told me that I was pregnant I cant help but cry and they were so happy for us.

Its an over whelming feeling that we have people with us at that time to share our joy. I really thank them for taking care of our embryos and us. They really have the heart to help couples build their families.

It’s been a year now since that journey and we had our healthy baby boy. We’re forever grateful for the blessing that God has given us.

Thank You to Dr. Pastorfide and his medical team. Doc you are best. Thank You so much.

To the Victory ART staff and embryologists thank you so much for helping us.

To all the couples out there that still wish for their bundle of joy, don’t give up. These are the people who can help you and they really do their job seriously. It’s not easy but it’s really worth it. Its bliss , it’s the joy of having a child and being mother.

A Dream Come True

We are grateful for the friendly and professional assistance of the Victory ART, Dr. Ilao Oreta and others who have contributed.

On Saturday 6th of March 2010 our dream came true when my wife gave birth to a healthy baby girl at St. Luke’s Hospital.

Due to medical conditions in both me and my wife the above would not have been possible without the assistance of the Victory ART professional staff in cooperation with our OB-GYN.

IVF technology was used which included sperm cells retrieval by means of biopsy. All required procedures were professionally performed by the Victory ART staff.

Prior to the pregnancy of my wife was confirmed around 18 months had passed with various procedures. Disappointments were experienced along the way. Three embryo transfers came out negative. I feel that was the hardest part for us and especially my wife. After each of the embryo transfers the woman is told to avoid heavy physical activity and then just wait for the blood test result taken after two weeks.

But looking back we both feel our daughter is worth it all and we are grateful for the friendly and professional assistance of the Victory ART and others who have contributed.

The Best Decision

.st0{fill:#FFD162;}

Choosing to work with Victory Art Lab was so far our best decision ever made!!

Finding a reputable fertility clinic is not like a walk in the park, especially when you try to do that in the Philippines.

We live in California where we found the best Reproductive Endocrinologist (RE) and a clinic that’s truly awesome in terms of services and facilities. We thought our dream of having a child is all within reach, but things do not go by as planned sometimes.

After several failed attempts of getting pregnant via artificial insemination, our RE then recommended IVF. The actual IVF procedure was performed here in San Francisco, CA. As life turns from bad to worse, our fresh cycle transfer failed. After carefully studying the logistics of doing another transfer, we opted to do it in the Philippines.

Then came Victory Art, Rowena (our embryologist) and Dr. Ancheta (our fertility specialist). The first encounter was through an email I sent asking about almost everything we need to know about doing a cycle. You can understand how anxious we were because this did not involve a simple frozen embryo transfer; this meant shipment of our remaining frozen embryos from San Francisco, CA to Makati, Philippines! Rowena was reassuring and comforting in her email.

The staff replied back with all the information we needed, answering all my questions as specific as they can. Before I had to physically ship our frozen embryos, the chief embryologist was in constant communication with our local embryologist in SF via email, ensuring safe transport of our precious embryos.

When they finally arrived in Victory Art’s office in Makati, Rowena made contact with me via email and took pictures of our “package”; described how things will be handled, and reassured us that everything is going to be all right. The staff was professional and the facility is comparable to world-class standards.

Several months later, we went back to the office to show our two little angels… made possible by the concerted efforts of Victory Art, Dr. Ancheta, our local clinic and our local RE.

Finding a fertility clinic is easy… Choosing the right one is not. Choosing to work with Victory Art Lab was so far our best decision ever made!!
