I had never heard of BFC until I was sitting in an international airport two years ago, waiting for my flight home. I had bought a well-known magazine to read and came across a story about a mature lady and her husband who had struggled with infertility for years and was finally successful after seeking assistance from BFC. The couple was blessed with a little girl who was their pride and joy.
At that time in my own life, I had only been married for a short time but wanted to start a family. I had started treatment locally in my own country and was treated with fertility medication for six months but was unsuccessful. After reading the story in the magazine and after my last failed attempt at fertility medication, my doctor at the time recommended BFC without her even knowing that I had read about the same place just recently. Her recommendation confirmed that this was the place I needed to go.
I visited the clinic's website and spoke with Anna who was so comforting and understanding and helped to cement in my mind that I was definitely making the right decision. As I was in my late thirties with low AMH levels, I knew I needed to act swiftly. After several months of correspondence, the required treatments and tests and trying to convince my husband this is what we needed to do, we headed to Barbados the following year to begin IVF treatments. We met with Anna, Dr. Skinner, Dr. Corona, Natalia the embryologist, Cyrilene, Emily the comedic nurse, Dionne and the rest of the team.
After speaking with everyone, I knew I was in the right hands. BFC knows how to provide excellent customer service, especially when dealing with such a sensitive issue as fertility. I have never felt more cared about and supported. I was not just a number to them but a woman with emotions and concerns in a very delicate and fragile state looking for hope and a chance at motherhood. After two failed IVF attempts, I am currently pregnant and my family and friends could not be happier and thrilled for us! It almost feels surreal that I will be a mother in a few short months but I am so thankful and grateful to BFC for assisting in making this happen. It was a financial sacrifice but well worth it. I would recommend BFC to anyone who has gone through fertility struggles and feel that they may never have a chance of having a family but go to the website, speak to Anna and leave the rest to BFC!
