Fertility Authority’s Blog of the Week: Bridge to Baby
The blog we’d like to feature this week is Bridge to Baby
After five years of infertility and many inseminations, Marni gave birth to a son in 2008. Soon after, she was diagnosed with MTHFR (which stands for methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase. It is an enzyme that helps metabolize homocysteine in the body). Three weeks after her son was born, she began to hemorrhage and had to have an emergency D&C to stop the bleeding. She was left with a damaged uterus and unable to carry another child. After several hysteroscopy surgeries to repair her damaged uterus, Marni and her husband decided to explore surrogacy and in 2012, their surrogate gave birth to their daughter at 25 weeks gestation. She lived a couple weeks before passing away. They do have frozen embryos and are currently trying to decide what their next steps are.
This is why Marni started her blog: she felt so alone in her struggles with infertility and then Asherman's Syndrome (intrauterine adhesions), that she wanted to create a place where people could connect, where she could share her stories and where others could share their stories as well. She hopes her blog is a place of healing.
