From Hope to Heartbreak to Happiness: Danielle’s Six-Year Journey to Motherhood with Dr. Amber Cooper
“My journey started in 2015 when I was diagnosed with endometriosis via laparoscopy. I found Dr Cooper and she made me feel so at ease about my situation. After many tests and procedures she diagnosed me with PCOS and ovulatory dysfunction. We started with timed intercourse due to our financial situation and not having infertility insurance. It was the cheapest option for us.
After we had two failed cycles we went on to the next thing which was IUI. It was draining and exhausting trying so hard with no luck. We felt like we were never going to have our family, especially at such a high cost.
After a couple years my husband ended up getting a position that offered us infertility insurance and it was such a light in a dark place. Although after two rounds of IVF brought us loss, in miscarriage and 5 failed transfers, every single moment we had to start over or something didn’t go right, I was able to look to Dr. Cooper for guidance and understanding.
Every moment I was down and felt like I had no where to turn I knew I just had to talk to her. After 6 years of hope, sadness, grief, loneliness, courage, and strength, I saw those two pink lines stay right where they were and in August of 2021 I brought my miracle into the world. We are so lucky that Dr. Cooper came into our lives and worked hard to help fulfill our dreams of becoming parents.”
