I left OFC after two unsuccessful IVF cycles. I switched to the Hannam Fertility Centre specifically under the care of Dr. Hannam. It's been a very long road for us, but Dr. Hannam never gave up on us despite all the challenges and setbacks we experienced. I'm now 25 weeks pregnant with twins and I owe it all to Dr. Hannam's ability to troubleshoot and persevere. I seriously get emotional when I think about that man!
I am glad I am not the only one who gets emotional thinking about Dr. Hannam! Unfortunately for us our prognosis is so poor with continued treatment that we are moving onto donor embryos. Hannam worked so hard to figure out what OFC had missed and we were able to finally get a complete diagnosis which has given us peace moving forwards. I have spent more time crying in the last week about the fact that Hannam may not be able to do our donor embryo FET
then I have about the fact that we will never have a biological child. He is such an amazing person and Dr.
