The decision to have a baby is not an easy one to take. But what happens when you finally decide to build your family, and realize that the road to parenthood is not as easy as you envisioned it to be? Welcome to my life. I never imagined that I would ever be sitting in a clinic, waiting for infertility treatment in India to create a miracle. Though my husband and I were married at an early age; me, 22, and him, 26, we weren’t completely sure about parenthood. 3 years into marriage, we decided that now would be a good time to start a family, and assumed it would happen easily, just like in the movies. However, we couldn’t be more wrong.
After trying for almost a year, we realized that something was wrong, which made us see a specialist, which was rare for couples to do in a country like Saudi Arabia. Not entirely happy and assured with the clinics we visited, my husband decided to do some research, in which he read about fertility treatments in India. Thanks to online consultations, we were able to talk to numerous doctors who assured us of great treatments. However, of the 20 odd doctors that we spoke to, Dr. Anjali Deval stood out. Kind, patient, and understanding, she took the time to understand our worries and concerns, and aired out any misconceptions we had about IVF treatment in India.
We sent our medical records and results to Dr Deval by email, and we settled on IVF treatments. I was prescribed medication to take for 2 weeks, which would allow my ovaries to release multiple eggs. I remember almost pinching my husband in anticipation and excitement, knowing that this was beginning to get real.
Bookings and Travel to Mumbai
We set a date for egg retrieval, and were scheduled to arrive in Mumbai a day prior to that. The team at IVF Spring, Mumbai, organized transport for us, and also recommended hotels we could stay at, which weren’t too far from the clinic. Before our flight took off, I felt a surge of excitement whip through me. Oddly enough, the feel of being in a new country was incredible calming, as we know we had truly chosen the best.
Bright and fresh in the morning, dressed in comfy clothes, my husband and me walked through the doors of IVF Spring. The doctor conducted preliminary tests to map out my progress. Dr. Deval then retrieved my eggs efficiently and quickly, while I was under sedation. We were told that she was able to collect 12 eggs in total, out of which only some would successfully be fertilized.
Exploring the country
My husband and I were free to explore Mumbai for a few days post the procedure, and saw the various sights in store for tourists. Street food, the hustle of the city, and the beautiful ocean had us. Our time in Mumbai was truly one-of-a-kind.
Transfer and Implantation
I remember being an absolute mess the night before the embryo transfer was scheduled. The severity and importance of the fertilized eggs actually being implanted got to me, I guess. On the day of the transfer, though I was anxious, the idea that in 2 weeks I could be pregnant, kept the excitement within me. The embryo transfer was simple, only taking a few minutes. 2 days, later, we were on a plane back to our home, where we had to hope and pray for the IVF treatment in India to work out. After much anticipation, I was declared pregnant in 2 weeks.
The final stage
Our excitement knew no bounds, and we couldn’t wait for our friends and family to get this news. My pregnancy journey wasn’t as tough as I had read it could be. Basically, a whole lot of medical checkups, chocolates, and tears later, I now have my newborn son in my hands.
I would like to thank Dr. Anjali Deval and the entire team at IVF Spring for everything they did for me. My husband, for holding my hand and going on this journey with me. And of course, my son, for being worth the entire experience we endured.
