We are so grateful for ORH to be part of this miraculous journey for us. We had been trying for many years since before 2015, when we first saw a fertility doctor in Pakistan. They recommended standard medications but we had no luck for 2 years. When we moved to Seattle we first tried another fertility clinic with two IUI attempts that also did not succeed. Getting more desperate we searched and found ORH in 2018. They first went through a very thorough and long process of testing over many months, including genetic testing to make sure we explore all possible causes of our inability to conceive and recurrent miscarriages. Finally, their advice was to try for IVF and our first attempt was made in May 2019. The Doctors at ORH recommended we use Prednisone for first 12 weeks of pregnancy as it may help with reducing NK (natural killer) cells, but we were concerned about side effects and decided not to use the steroid. Unfortunately that attempt also ended in a miscarriage at 7 weeks and we were heart broken and almost running out of hope. We then had to again go through the process of recovery and scartissue removal surgery after that, and made our next IVF attempt in January 2020. This time, we decided to take the leap and try prednisone. By the grace of God this attempt was successful and we had our baby boy at the expected delivery date in October 2020. We are very grateful to the ORH doctors (Dr Rehman,Dr Johnson, Jo Gray) and all the nurses and staff for their highly professional, detailed, and courteous work ethic and commitment to getting the job done thoroughly, properly and successfully. They always provided us all the information we needed and were very transparent and also supportive of our decisions and concerns. It has been a very very long and dramatic journey for us and we are so grateful to God to make us succeed in the end, through the technical excellence and professionalism of ORH.
So in summary we will say that the journey may not be an easy one and may be long and dramatic with many ups and downs. But if anyone does decide to embark on it, we wish you the very best and from our long experience will recommend ORH will be the best place to try. Thank you to everyone there from the bottom of our hearts.
