For us, having a child didn’t happen “the old fashioned way”, because my guy, KB, had a vasectomy may years ago. Instead, it was a long journey – more like an epic (and I won’t lie, expensive) expedition! But we were blessed with a successful round of fertility treatment at Tygerberg Fertility Clinic with Dr Thabo Matsaseng. Our daughter, Kadin, was born early 2018.
I thought about it long and hard and decided to share our journey on my blog. There was some pretty invasive stuff happening all round. No one likes complete strangers all up in their junk. No one. Let alone sharing it online where anyone can read it and get an intimate first-hand account of the whole process. It’s a giant over-share with a whole lot of TMI thrown in for good measure. I know that there must be other couples out there in a similar situation who may benefit from my sharing our expedition into parenthood.
We can’t be the only couple in this situation and I hope that sharing our journey makes it less daunting or scary for someone else out there. You can read all my fertility-related posts here.
