Anne & Wayne’s Story
We cannot thank the Marguerite Bourgeoys Family Centre (MBFC) enough for helping us have our family! Before seeking their help, we had been trying for nearly two years to conceive. I had heard of the MBFC through friends who were former clients. The holistic approach of NaProTECHNOLOGY® appealed to us, so we felt most comfortable pursuing this kind of program for our fertility concerns.
Through NaProTracking® we became adept at identifying fertile days in my cycle. Charting also indicated that my progesterone was low. Bloodwork done under the direction of a NaPro Medical Consultant confirmed that both my progesterone and estrogen were low, thus preventing us from conceiving and sustaining a pregnancy. I was reassured by the non-invasive steps taken to help my body resume “normal” fertility. I like to describe this approach to fertility treatment as one that “works with your body rather than doing things to it.”
The practitioner and medical consultant were knowledgeable and encouraging. We felt supported and cared for. The counseling they provide was so crucial in helping us as a couple to deal with the stress and disappointment we felt each month when we still had not conceived. However, each month brought us closer to pinpointing what was needed to help us conceive. We were very hopeful because of the proactive process in which we were involved.
It is fascinating to me that my overall health and wellness improved as a result of the Vitamin B6 and progesterone supplements I was taking to enhance my fertility!
How delighted we were when we finally became pregnant and had our first child in June 1999. I had just turned 37!! We knew that we would need assistance having a second child, but the “ground work” had already been done! We began charting soon after Benjamin’s birth and returned to our practitioner and medical consultant. After only 3 months of NaPro treatment, I became pregnant and had baby Rebecca just months before turning 40!!
How fortunate that the MBFC was there to help us when we needed them! We are forever grateful!
