Lasha and Joshua’s Journey to Parenthood with Kindbody

Facing the Diagnosis

“I was diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome at 21 and was told that it would be difficult to have children,” Lasha recalls. This diagnosis marked the beginning of a challenging journey for Lasha and her husband, Joshua, who tried for several years to conceive without success.

Finding Kindbody

Their journey took a hopeful turn when they were referred to Kindbody Clinic through their insurance. “At the very first visit, our options were explained to us, and based on my previous medical history, IVF was suggested as the best form of treatment,” Lasha shared.

A Supportive Environment

One of the standout aspects of their experience at Kindbody was the supportive environment created by the staff. “The staff became family very quickly, always helpful and explaining each step as the process continued,” Lasha noted. This sense of family and support made a significant difference as they navigated the complex and often emotional process of IVF.

Overcoming Challenges

Lasha and Joshua faced several challenges during their IVF journey, particularly with the effects of the medication and hormone levels. “The staff reminded me to be patient with myself and trust the process,” Lasha said. This encouragement helped them stay focused and positive throughout their treatment.

The IVF Process

The medical team at Kindbody provided detailed explanations at every step, particularly during the embryo transfer. “The doctors explained the selection of the embryo at the transfer that was chosen and explained as we watched the implantation as it was happening,” Lasha explained. This transparency and involvement in the process helped them feel more connected and informed.

Welcoming Their Baby Boy

Their journey culminated in the joyous arrival of their baby boy on March 26, 2024. “We were overjoyed to welcome our baby boy,” Lasha said with immense gratitude. “We will always consider the Kindbody staff as family and we thank them so much for helping us complete our family.”

Advice for Others Starting Their Journey

Lasha offers heartfelt advice for others who are about to start their family-building journey: “Be patient with yourself and your partner. Ask questions and share concerns with your treatment team. Most importantly, don’t give up. It is possible.”

A Message of Hope

Lasha and Joshua’s story is a testament to the resilience, hope, and support that can make the dream of parenthood a reality. Their experience with Kindbody highlights the importance of patience, communication, and trust in the process. To anyone struggling with infertility, Lasha and Joshua’s journey offers a powerful message: never give up, as dreams of having a family can indeed come true.
