UPDATE, December 2016: See the latest testimonial from Christi Marchant. She shared a picture of her TR baby’s first Christmas!
Dear Dr. Rosenfeld and Staff,
My husband and I are from Aladdin, WY. In January of 2013 our third child, a beautiful baby girl, was born perfect and healthy. We couldn’t have been happier; our family of five felt perfect and complete. A few months down the road, as we were considering birth control options, the doctor informed us about Essure. This non-surgical, non-hormone, cost effective option seemed perfect. We went ahead with it, never imagining that there would ever be any reason to make us reconsider. Why would we when our little family was just right, and we were so happy?
A little over a year later, on September 9, 2014, our perfect baby girl left us to walk with Jesus. With very little warning or symptoms, her appendix burst and her tiny body succumbed to sepsis very quickly. The doctors and staff worked so hard to help her, but our little angel flew to heaven. I can tell you there is nothing worse than losing a child. It hurts so badly that it truly feels as though your heart is breaking.
After several months, our boys began to question us about having another baby. The thought of a new precious miracle in our lives grew in our hearts quickly, and we began to look at what our options were. When I had gotten the Essure, the doctor had been very specific that it could not be reversed. With our first phone calls, we were told our only option was in vitro fertilization. As we researched that, it just didn’t seem like a great option for us. However, I stumbled on a website that advertised actual reversal of the Essure, and we were so excited! Within a short period, we had narrowed our doctor down to you, and your staff was able to work with me and schedule us in quite quickly. In April of 2015, we were on your doorstep, hoping for a successful surgery and that a 35% chance of conception would be enough.
We are so thrilled to write this letter and tell you THANK YOU! Because of all of your dedication and hard work, we are expecting a baby girl on July 6! My c-section is tentatively scheduled for one week before her due date. We’ve just had our anatomy scan, and she is perfect. A baby is a blessing any time, but this baby had come at a time when we really needed some joy in our lives. Our boys are really planning all the things they will teach her and how they will take care of her.We miss our sweet, sassy little Reese every minute of every day. She left a never-ending ache in our hearts and an empty spot in our lives. However, you all worked together to provide our family with the opportunity for new hope in our lives, and we are ever so grateful for that.
We just can’t thank you enough. We’ll send a photo after she’s born!
May God bless you all.
