At first glance it might appear a bit confronting, but it’s been described as “the true definition of love that went into making this gorgeous new baby girl.”
Sher Institutes, a US network of fertility clinics, shared this picture on their Facebook page after it was submitted by new mum, Angela. It reflects the countless injections she was given over the course of a year on IVF treatment.
We love this picture because it depicts the amount of love and dedication that goes into IVF from couples who want nothing more than to be parents. I know because I am one of those parents. The beautiful little babe pictured here could in fact be my 7 month-old daughter, Edie. It was not easy to get my little Edie bug. Hundreds of needles were injected and thousands of tablets were taken and all worked together to bring her into this world. I hope one day she knows the huge amount of love and determination that went into making her. And I hope she knows I would do it all again in a heartbeat.
