Last January 19th, after 41 weeks, our daughter was born vaginally.
The pregnancy went very well! Without any symptoms or discomfort, but the birth was quite hard; in the end with episiotomy because she was breech, but thanks to the great experience of the staff at the hospital, our daughter was born healthy and well.
Now we are waiting for the report of the heel test, we are a bit nervous, but with great faith that everything will be fine.
We have no words to thank you for all the work, patience and support we received during the insemination process, we are finally living our big dream!
Please let the girls at the reception know that all three of us are happy.
A big hug!
I have no words to describe the wonderful experience we had with Institut Marquès and in particular with Dr Valentina Milani, from the Milan centre, and our medical assistant, Ilaria Cattaneo, who were wonderful. Our journey began in May 2021; at the end of October we were in Barcelona for the egg pick-up and now we are expecting a baby girl. At 41 years old, I didn't think it could happen so quickly and in such a special way. I am aware that for many couples this is not always an easy road, and we were probably lucky, but we lived it all with a lot of enthusiasm, and this enthusiasm was fuelled by all the staff at Institut Marquès. Going to Barcelona was a fantastic experience. We want to thank all the staff who welcomed us (Carla, Lucía, Pilar, Filippo and many others) and we will continue to thank Dr. Milani, who even called us on Sunday morning before leaving for Barcelona to reassure us for the umpteenth time, and Ilaria, who I don't know how many calls and emails she received from us.
Institut Marquès helped us make our dream come true and will always have a special place in our hearts.
