After years of trying to conceive and four rounds of IVF treatment at Origin Fertility Care Alison and Andrew Allen are now happy to have two healthy babies, Jack and Indie. Alison was overwhelmed with joy upon finding out they were not expecting one baby but twins, “It was amazing – instead of one, we now had two!”

After three years together, Alison and Andrew began trying to conceive.  After an unsuccessful year Alison and Andrew visited their doctor and were referred for IVF on the NHS, unfortunately the first round was unsuccessful.  For many couples it takes a few attempts at IVF before they will successfully become pregnant.  The NHS state that around 32.2% of IVF treatments for women aged 35 or under result in live births, this percentage declines with the age of the woman being treated, by the time a woman is 44 there is just a 1.9% chance of success.  

Alison and Andrew were devastated after their first attempt but decided to get in touch with Origin Fertility Care, Alison recounts “the course failed and I was devastated.  We had to decide whether we wanted to take on the expense of further courses, and of course we did”.  Origin were able to extract 12 healthy embryos.  It took four attempts at IVF before the treatment was successful. Alison was so surprised she took 14 pregnancy tests to confirm the pregnancy.
