Fertility Authority’s Blog of the Week: Hope is Our Anchor

The blog we’d like to feature this week is Hope is Our Anchor.

Tara and Christopher have experienced heartache and devastation first hand. Throughout their infertility journey they have faced unimaginable pain and suffering. Their story began with several unsuccessful IUI treatments. The couple then decided that it was time try IVF. Four days after her first IVF cycle Tara found out that she was pregnant. Their dream of parenthood was finally about to become a reality. However, at her 38-week appointment Tara learned that the baby no longer had a heartbeat. They had lost their precious miracle son, Rowan. A double nuchal cord tight to the point of compression caused his death. After trying IVF for the second time with no success Tara and Christopher had spent more than $60,000 (nearly all of their savings). A friend encouraged the couple to start a GoFundMe account to raise money for a last chance at IVF. They are currently in the middle of priming with a new doctor at one of the best clinics in the country. They remain hopeful and feel incredibly blessed to have been given this opportunity!

Tara and Christopher started their blog to reach out to others traveling the road of infant loss and infertility. They wanted to offer hope on a lonely journey. She explains, “We hope our readers get a sense of HOPE!! We want others to feel they are not alone. We want to offer our story as a message of perseverance, love, and again, hope.”
