Always, Katie: IVF in Barbados


IVF in Barbados

In March 2014, after much frustration and many tears over the lack of care from our current fertility specialist, my husband and I decided that our first IVF cycle would take place at Barbados Fertility Centre.  Here are all of the posts I wrote leading up to, during, and after that cycle.  I also kept it updated through our (successful!) FET cycle as well.  If you're wondering if BFC could be the right choice for you, read along, and feel free to email me any questions you have! And please see the announcement at the bottom of the page :-)
