A doctor at a St. Louis fertility clinic recently shared a picture by a patient, who only identified herself as Angela. The photo gives a glimpse at what some women face as they try to conceive through In Vitro Fertilization, or IVF.
That picture, posted on Facebook by The Sher Institutes, who specialize in fertility medicine, is now inspiring other women to share photos of their own children conceived through IVF.
"In every ordinary day there are a thousand miracles," wrote commenter Sharleen Romer, "and I am truly blessed to have had one of them."
Other women had equally beautiful sentiments.
"My IVF twins are now 13," said Maureen Lemmer in a comment. "They were worth every injection, every procedure, every mile driven to the fertility clinic!"
"I'm a nurse at a Fertility Center," wrote A'Tiffa Dunbar. "I just love this post!!! The joy i get from seeing MY patients' positive outcome....fills my heart and i feel like a part of their journey."
