The patient contacted me about the birth of a baby.

Patient: A.

It took me awhile to write this note: I gave birth to a boy safely in October 2020.
Thank you very much for your help.
In the early stages of pregnancy, I was worried about what would happen due to an imminent miscarriage, but thanks to you, my worries have now shifted to raising my children!
My family is so happy. Thank you so much for giving me the joy of having a child.
If possible, I am thinking of having a second child, so I think that I will be indebted to you again, but thank you.
The world is difficult, the best we can do is love.
I am looking forward to seeing you again.

Patient: F.

To the doctors at Oak Clinic: It's been a long time.
Last month, I gave birth to a healthy boy.
I gave birth by scheduled Caesarean section at 37 weeks, and a large and energetic child of 3428g was born.
I remember being relieved that he cried loudly before he was completely out of my stomach.
I was able to meet this child thanks to the Oak Clinic staff.
Thank you for always being kind.
Thank you very much for your treatment that helped end recurrent miscarriage and avoid another one.
Without that treatment, I wouldn't be able to see this child.
Please keep fighting for couples like us!
You may be busy, but please take care.
I'm really thankful to you.

Patient: I.

Excuse me for the sudden letter. My name is I. and I was taken care of by Dr. Taguchi at the clinic in Osaka a while ago, and then again at the clinic in Ginza last year.

I would like to write a report and thank you.
Although the report was delayed, I gave birth to a large and energetic girl weighing 3,740g.
I wanted to express my gratitude as soon as possible for this life.
While I still had frozen embryos, I wasn’t sure whether to do embryo transfer with those or make new embryos. Dr. Taguchi’s consultation was invaluable, and we decided to make new embryos.
When I saw the baby, I was really glad that I chose that oocyte, and I was really glad that this child was born.
I remembered Dr. Taguchi’s comforting and energizing words, and I am very grateful that I was able to make the best choice without regrets, even though I felt lost at times.

Before entering the cycle, I consulted with Dr. Taguchi in various ways and decided on a policy, and ultimately, I was able to give birth safely.
Thanks to Dr. Taguchi, I was able to stay positive for two or three oocyte pick-up cycles.
There were various anxieties, worries, and complicated feelings, but I was saved and guided many times by the doctor's cheerful and warm personality and good judgment.
This life was born because of the help of Dr. Taguchi.
Thank you very much.
I would like to keep this feeling in mind and cherish life.
I will never forget the help of Dr. Taguchi at both the Osaka clinic and the Ginza clinic.
I couldn't find any words other than gratitude for being able to proceed one by one with various procedures, three oocyte pick-ups, and transplantation.
When Corona has settled down, I would like to ask you to say hello again.
I can't tell you how much I appreciate everything. Thank you very much.

Patient: N.

Hello. It’s been a while! I'm sorry for the late report and I thank you. I gave birth to a boy safely.
As it was at the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, my husband could not be in the hospital room with me, but the baby was born without any major problems. The process up to that point was smooth. Children are louder and louder and are growing up vigorously. My parents, who had given up on seeing their grandchildren, met us only once during the pandemic, but they are happy even just to see the photos and videos. We are also enjoying raising these children while enjoying their happiness.

If I hadn't attended the briefing session, and without the support of Dr. H, I would probably have had a different life. Of all the advice I received, I was particularly impressed by the words, "No one regrets collecting oocytes."
Thanks to Dr. O, the oocyte pick-up was successful, so many blastocysts are still frozen, but I am really happy with the existence of my eldest son, and I have not yet thought about what to do next.
However, I don't think I need to collect any more oocytes from now!
I am really grateful to Dr. H, Dr. W, Dr. O, nurses, embryologists, and help desk staff.

Normally, I would like to thank you directly, but I would like to refrain from disturbing many people who are also in need of help, so I write this letter.
I'm really thankful to you. It is not hyperbole to say I will never forget your gratitude.
If I decide to have more children, I will be happy to return to you.
Please take care of yourself and do your best in the future.

Patient: I.

My name is I. and I had IVF last year.
Although the report was delayed, I gave birth to a healthy girl safely.
It was Mr. H who collected the oocytes and transplanted them this time. I don't know how to express my gratitude.

I was very nervous about oocyte pick-up and transplantation, but I remember that I was very relieved that Dr. H was in charge and I had a great deal of trust in Dr. H. The doctor’s attitude and skills put my mind at ease, even when I was worried, all thanks to Mr. H.
I had bleeding during pregnancy and was hospitalized twice due to an imminent miscarriage. Even though I had to be on bedrest for a long time to avoid disaster, the baby was born on the scheduled day. I had a lot of bleeding during childbirth and it was extremely difficult, but everything was safe in the end.

Thanks to Dr. H's high skill, this life was born.

I was fortunate to have Dr. H take charge.
I would like to express my sincere gratitude and gratitude for a pregnancy without any regrets. With this feeling in mind, we will cherish this life.
Thank you, a million times, over. I will never forget that I was taken care of by Dr. H.
Thank you very much.

Patient: S.

To Oak Clinic, Ginza:
Thank you very much for the last year and a half. At first, when I received fertility treatment, I was full of anxiety about whether it would be compatible with my work and how much my life would change.
Between my schedule and my partner’s, I was worried whether I could be treated.
I was able to go to the hospital without difficulty because of how you understood our life cycle and schedule, including Dr. S and Dr. H. Around the one-year mark, I was tired of going to the hospital and was wondering whether to consider transferring to another hospital or take a break from treatment. I was able to start in vitro fertilization, and the first transplant led to this pregnancy. Thank you for this. Dr. W who carefully examined my husband's male infertility, Dr. O who was in charge of oocyte pick-up and transplantation, and Dr. F who was able to give me peace of mind in a gentle and warm atmosphere. All the doctors seem wonderful. Nurses too always politely explained and assisted with treatments and embryologists gave me detailed explanations of oocyte pick-up, transplantation, culture, and fertilized oocytes, always with a gentle smile. Even the receptionists helped me a lot. It is thanks to you I can cherish this life.
Last but not least, I pray for your good health.

Patient: I.

My name is I. and I just had a medical examination after the in vitro fertilization transplant last year.
I would like to write a report and thank you for helping me give birth safely to a healthy baby girl.

In the early stages of pregnancy, Dr. Funabiki recommended I rest a lot because of bleeding. I was worried about taking time off work, but following the doctor’s orders is what saved my baby girl’s life. Between then and now, there was even hospitalization for imminent miscarriage, but in the end, the child was born on schedule.
During pregnancy, I was afraid that I might bleed again, and I had a lot of bleeding during childbirth, which made it a big challenge that left me exhausted and emotional.
Looking back now, I'm really glad that I rested when the doctor told me, I don’t think I could have done this otherwise. Thank you very much for your careful examination and advice.

I will never forget the kindness of Dr. Funabiki and this feeling of gratitude.
From now on, I would like to cherish this life.
Thank you very much.

Patient: I.

My name is I. and last year, I underwent IVF with micro-insemination as well as embryo transfer.
I would like to express my gratitude and make a delayed report of my experience giving birth safely to a large, healthy baby girl.

I am so sincerely happy that this child was born, and so grateful, I don’t even know how to say thank you for helping me create this precious life.
K was the embryologist in charge, and thanks to K’s skill and this technology, this child was able to be born.
Thank you very much.

Shortly after I knew I was pregnant; I had bleeding and was hospitalized twice for an imminent miscarriage. After that, I nearly gave birth prematurely, but after bedrest and careful attention, the birth took place on schedule. It was a very hard time, but thanks to the inspiration of the doctor, I got through it. I was full of gratitude.
The embryologist even checked in on my pregnancy progress, which was so wonderful. I’m happy that someone so warm was in charge.
After collecting oocytes last year, when K came to the recovery room and explained the number of oocytes collected, I was relieved and trusted K, who had taken care of me in Osaka before.

From now on, every time I feel gratitude for the birth of this child, I think it will continue to lead to gratitude to K.

Thank you very much.
I will never forget that I was taken care of by K.
Thank you very much.

When the pandemic calms down, I would like to speak again.

Patient: R.

After four failed Intrauterine Inseminations(IUI) from a previous clinic in Manila,Philippines, we were at a lost for hope. It almost felt impossible to have another child. We have been trying to conceive for almost 6 years since our first born son in 2012.
Nothing was working and we had just experienced another failed insemination in july 2018.Immediately upon returning to Japan,we began researching In-Vitro Fertilization(IVF) clinics that would help us have our second child.That is when we stumbled upon Oak Clinic's website. A heaven sent sign that it was indeed possible to have another child.

Oak Clinic has given us our beautiful second son who was born on 2019. The journey was a blessing and at times an emotional roller cosuter ride.We want to thank all of the staff, doctors, and nurses at Oak Clinic in Ginza for the amazing treatment during our visits. A very special thank you Dr.S who helped instill hope and encouraged me to celebrate this miracle. We are extremely grateful for your kindness and professionalism throughout our time at the clinic.

Patient: I.

I would like to offer my thanks to the doctors and staff at Oak Sumiyoshi, who helped end my miscarriages so I could give birth safely.
Now, my son is 5 years and 9 months old.
My child has grown into a boy who eats well, sleeps well, and speaks well.

About 13 years ago, I learned about the existence of this doctor in the magazine "STORY" and while thinking that Osaka was far from my home in Aichi prefecture, I consulted with a hospital, collected oocytes at the age of 38, and had uterine fibroids treated at Nishinari Municipal Hospital twice. I gave birth at the age of 44 with for the third time. It took me a while to get back in shape due to my weak constitution, but now I am 50 years old, I am doing my best at work, childcare and long-term care. My son is everything to me.
It was difficult for me to give birth, but thanks to Dr. Taguchi, I didn't give up, and after all this time, I saw the miracle of life.
Thank you very much

Recently, I saw the introduction of the doctor’s book in a pregnancy magazine at the acupuncture clinic. I sincerely hope that the doctor's feelings will reach everyone who wants children.

Patient: T.

Thank you for your polite response despite my sudden requests. I had so many things I needed, especially because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

I am really grateful to Dr. Taguchi and other doctors, nurses, help desk and other clerical staff.
I am truly grateful to everyone for being able to have my eldest son. Now I can focus on taking care of him.

Patient: Y.

Thank you very much for your kindness during my visit.
Thanks to you, I gave birth to my daughter and son.
During fertility treatment, I had so much pain both physically and mentally. It was difficult to balance with work, but I was able to continue thanks to the various consultations and considerations given to me. Even after I became pregnant, I was hospitalized to avoid miscarriage. In my anxious days, I was encouraged by the kind words and care of doctors and nurses, and I was able to continue my pregnancy. In addition, the self-injection of heparin, which continued until near the time of childbirth, was more and more uncomfortable every day, but it was worth the effort and both children could grow strong.

Now, my husband is also taking childcare leave, and we are spending our days raising twins! Being twins, it's hard every day, but my long-awaited children are cute and wonderfully incorrigible.I have the utmost happiness.

It may be difficult in the future, but I would like to take good care of my children who I finally met and have a good time with my family of four. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to all of you for your kindness.
I'm really thankful and wishing for all of your health and happiness.

Patient: M.

Today I am transferring to a hospital for further prenatal care, but I am very grateful to all the members of the Oak Clinic. Thanks to you, I was able to reach the 12th week of pregnancy.

Looking back on the long treatment, as I stepped up from timing treatment to artificial insemination and in vitro fertilization, I was desperate for the things in front of me and felt pressure to get pregnant early.

I stopped and thought when I did not get pregnant even after several embryo transfers. All the oocytes I collected with the idea of the next time were not able to move forward. This made me less confident about how to proceed. At that time, the doctor listened carefully to me and encouraged me. He also promised to keep an eye on my condition during the doctor's consultation time. At that time, I remember being surprised and reassured by the doctor who supported me so much.

After that, I felt a positive change.
I learned about in vitro fertilization in a fertility magazine and used what I learned. The team was so helpful and considerate. At the time of the final pregnancy judgment, my positive result was a happy surprise.

Infertility treatment has been a long and painful experience for me. Without the encouragement of the doctor and the support of the Oak Sumiyoshi Obstetrics and Gynecology department, the mind might have broken before the body. When I received a positive message with a smile, I was encouraged, even if not feeling well and despairing.
Through this treatment, I was able to feel that medicine is truly a human practice.

I will continue to do my best until childbirth so that I can make more good reports.
We pray for the further success of the doctors and other members of the Oak Clinic, and thank you again, so much.

Patient: R.

Oak Clinic, Ginza:
Thanks to you, I became pregnant in 2019 and gave birth to a healthy boy.
He weighed 3858 grams and 52.1 centimeters.

Thanks to Oak, I've come this far. Thank you very much. In particular, I was taken care of by Dr. O, and I was able to do my best with less anxiety because the surgery that was painful at other clinics did not hurt at Oak. I am grateful.

Patient: A.

Oak Clinic, Ginza:
I feel that I am in your debt.
Thanks to you, I was able to give birth to a big healthy girl weighing 3884 grams.
I am happy to be able to spend my days busy raising children.
Thank you.

To the director, Dr. Funabiki, doctors, nurses, embryologists, and staff:

Patient: T.

Sorry for taking so long to report! I was able to give birth to a baby boy safely.

Long time no see!
I was taken care of at Oak for a year. After undergoing artificial insemination and in vitro fertilization, I gave birth to a healthy boy weighing 3,526g.

Every time I visited, the doctors, nurses, embryologists, and receptionists were very kind, so I was able to go to the hospital as part of my daily life without any particular anxiety.

From the time my son was a fertilized oocyte, I observed his growth.
I am proud to be able to watch the growth from the beginning.

Now, he is five and a half months old and weighs a little over 8kg.
I'm struggling with baby food every day! This is the kind of struggle I wished for.
He has a lot of fun every day. Sometimes I remember when I was in the hospital, and I am deeply moved by everything that happened.

Thank you very much for your kindness.
Last but not least, I pray for your ongoing success.

Patient: U.

Thank you for your support from 2013.
I was able to give birth to a boy safely, and I am happy to be able to tell you that.
Thank you very much for your kindness during my visits and treatment.

During pregnancy, I had a very difficult time!
I nearly miscarried and struggled a lot, but I did everything I could with the help of doctors and gave birth at 37 weeks by cesarean section.
After giving birth, the baby had a hole in his heart, but everything else is fine.Now he is healthy.

It was really nice to read Dr. Taguchi's book and visit the doctor's clinic in Osaka.
We are grateful to Dr. Taguchi, Dr. Tada, Dr. Hayashi, and many other doctors.
We would also like to express our sincere gratitude to all the nurses who always encouraged us and the clerical staff who treated us cheerfully.
I'd really like to go to Osaka and thank you, but writing will have to do.

We pray for the continued health of Dr. Taguchi and all of the Oak Sumiyoshi staff as well as the development of your hospital.
Thank you very much.

Patient: T.

We would like to express our deep gratitude to you. Recently, I have entered a stable period, taking a walk with my baby, eating nutritious food, and caring for my health.

Thank you very much to Dr. K for always listening to my concerns and finding a method that suits me. On the day of the pregnancy test, I was very happy to hear from K that "the baby is clinging firmly!"
We are also very grateful to Dr. H and her embryology team for collecting oocytes and transferring embryos.
I received many words of joy, "I'm glad! Congratulations!" And I saw the little life that lived in me moving my heart.
I nearly had a miscarriage, and I appreciate all the care I received.
With a coordinator who keeps smiling at all times, M, a nurse, immediately answered simple questions and always supported me. Thank you for all your advice and energy.

I was nervous when they explained the results of the culture, but K helped me keep a positive impression.
When I was hospitalized for an imminent miscarriage, many nurses were kind to me and I was very grateful.

This pregnancy would not have been possible without the great help of all your staff and the vitality of this baby.
I was surprised and impressed by the advanced technology of oocyte pick-up and embryo transfer in a full-scale operating room. Fortunately, I was able to benefit from advanced medical care, and it was an opportunity to reaffirm the splendor of connecting with people and the preciousness of life.

I will do my best to meet a healthy baby and report the birth to your hospital. It's been a long time since then, but thank you very much.

Addendum: If you compare childbirth to exercise, you will be taught to climb Mt. Fuji and run a marathon for 42 km. I am working hard to improve my physical strength by going to maternity yoga!

I was able to give birth to the second child safely. Both of the children are growing up well and I am truly grateful to everyone.

Honestly, raising children is often frustrating. It is the kind of struggle I dreamed of. Looking at the smiling faces of the children, I am glad about everything. I think that there are many people who continue treatment with mixed feelings, and I hope that you will continue to support such people.

The waiting time for medical examination and accounting was shorter than during the first treatment, which was helpful during the second treatment. Thank you.

This was the second childbirth. Childbirth was hard, but I’ve come to understand that it is not simply natural to give birth easily, so I don’t feel bad. I would like to take good care of the two children who were given by in vitro fertilization.

Patient: H.

During the early stages of my pregnancy, excessive bleeding led to me requiring bed rest. Because of that, I was worried every day. Was it possible for me to bring this child to term? However, in the end, everything went well, and mother and child both came through healthy. I’m so happy and grateful for this.

I got married at the age of 40, and knew the odds were against me, but I did try to get pregnant naturally for one year with no success. I decided to go to a hospital specializing in fertility treatment. In particular, I was worried about uterine fibroids, which were a problem for me in the past. The doctors encouraged me with their positivity and optimism, which made my husband optimistic too, so I decided to try in vitro fertilization. Even then, it was difficult. When the number of oocytes collected was small, I felt sick with despair, but the doctors’ positive thoughts and attitude influenced me for the better, and the coordinator’s kindness helped too. Thanks to that, I was able to continue my treatment. Infertility treatment was often difficult, but having persevered, I am really happy to be able to hold my child in my arms. Thank you very much for your kindness.

Patient: K.

After a year and a half of effort, I gave birth to my daughter safely this year at the age of 42, and I am grateful to everyone.
Despite advanced maternal age, I had almost no morning sickness and was able to lead a maternity life very easily. It was largely due to the help of doctors, embryologists, and nurses that I was doing well for my age, but I think that I am fortunate to have my overly optimistic personality. I was lucky if I received it, and I thought I should have a different life if I couldn't. Therefore, I was able to spend my time without worrying about the numerical values and results of the tests. Being too worried can be stressful. Those who are currently undergoing treatment may have a hard time seeing the future, I recommend they stay focused on good feelings in the present.

Patient: I.

Last year, I gave birth to a girl safely. I am truly grateful to everyone for their kindness from the first treatment. IVF was difficult, and I had bleeding during pregnancy, but even though I was about to give up many times, I persisted because of the support of everyone. I will never forget that you treated me warmly and kindly.
I am very happy to meet my two children now.
It's difficult to raise a child, but since I've survived the treatment, I think I'll be able to live without being discouraged.
Thanks to all of you, I felt that I wouldn't regret any way I ended my pregnancy, but I was able to graduate in the best possible way. I really thank you.

It has been seven years since I first went to the hospital.
Since then, I am grateful to all the doctors and staff for their kindness. Last time, I had preeclampsia and had a hard time giving birth. This time too, it was difficult due to bleeding, but I successfully had another child.
I would like to try for a third!

I am really grateful for the support of many staff members before I became pregnant. I'm busy taking care of my daughter every day, but I'm also happy. I hope that all the people who are undergoing fertility treatment will have a baby. I also hope that the cost of fertility treatment will be cheaper and that all tests and injections will not hurt. I am also thinking about my second child, so I think I will be indebted to you again soon. Thank you.

Patient: K.

My water broke two weeks earlier than the scheduled date, and I had to give birth without any preparedness, but at the moment when my child’s head came out, I finally met my baby. I was so full of gratitude that I cried. My husband also attended and I was able to have a happy childbirth. I waited so long and my baby is so cute!

Patient: T.

It was really difficult to give birth, but I am grateful that my child was born safely. I think this irreplaceable joy is due to those around me who supported me through pregnancy and childbirth. I was full of anxiety during the treatment, but I am very grateful to the hospital doctors and staff for helping me overcome.

Patient: Y.

Y’s child
Y’s child

Thank you very much for your kindness from the initial treatment to 32 weeks.
I experienced a long hospital stay twice after my pregnancy was discovered, and I had a long rest period. Sometimes I was anxious about my life just sleeping, but hospitalization helped me press on. I became familiar with the nurses, and in many cases I felt much better. I'm grateful that you talked to me often.
After giving birth, pregnancy seemed forever ago. It was a miracle that I came here for the second fertilization at this age. I am just grateful that the doctor helped me think about a second child and supported the recovery of my body, and I was able to give birth with the support of many people. It’s hard to even consider the next child yet!
I'm still busy raising children every day, but now I can afford to feel happy. When choosing Oak Clinic, it was because of someone else’s report, and the fact that the doctor had experience in treatment was also a major factor. All the doctors, nurses and staff were kind and cheerful, and it was a relief that I didn't hate going. In such a case, I wish I had started treatment earlier. Thank you very much for your help.

Patient: I.

I am very grateful that I attended Oak Sumiyoshi Obstetrics and Gynecology and was able to have a baby in about a year.
When it was difficult or I couldn't get a good result, the doctor inspired me. It was a great time, and then even better when I gave birth to my own child. Looking at the growth of my daughter who will soon be one year old, I think it was really good to work hard on the treatment. I'm really thankful to you.

Because of age and lack of oocytes, we were planning to stop treatment, but we received a proposal for an ERA test. Based on the test results, the embryo transfer time was adjusted, which led to this miraculous birth.

I believed that I would know if I could get pregnant once I got pregnant, and that’s exactly how it went! My family has come a long way, and I'm really happy that my baby has been born healthy! This happiness today is the result of that first day visiting Oak Clinic. I'm glad I tried it! Thank you very much.

I had uterine fibroids during treatment and had a Caesarean section. Although it was not a normal delivery, the joy of seeing the child I gave birth to still makes me cry. The treatment seemed endless sometimes, but I'm glad I did my best. Raising a child is difficult too, but it is very a fun challenge. The child is healthy and full of energy.

Since I got pregnant, I worried about a miscarriage or premature birth, but I am really glad that I was able to give birth safely. I’m so glad that I believed in the Oak Clinic doctors, and the “step up” method of treatment to IVF.
I trusted the doctors, and I was able to meet such a cute baby. It's hard now, but I'm happy with my child-rearing days. Thank you very much!

I got married late and started fertility treatment in my 40s, but even in my late 40s I became a mother of two children, which can only be called a miracle.

I cannot thank you enough for the positive treatment and the words of the staff who supported me. I'm really thankful to you.

During fertility treatment, I was worried about various things such as "Do I really want a child?" And "Can I love my child properly?" I am truly delighted. I am glad that I was able to receive an irreplaceable treasure and worked hard on the treatment. I'm really thankful to you.

I am glad that I was able to give birth to a healthy baby without any major troubles during my pregnancy. Thank you very much.

Patient: M.

I got married in my late 30s, so I decided to get pregnant as soon as possible. Thanks to you, I got pregnant and gave birth after 3 times of oocyte pick-up and 4th embryo transfer. One year later I resumed treatment and got pregnant and gave birth on the first try! In the hard times, I began to lose hope, but the doctors’ explanations encouraged me. I'm really thankful to you.

Patient: Y.

From fertility treatment to childbirth, there were things that made me happy, stressed, and sad, but when my baby was born, everything was great. Every day is busy, but I have a lot of discoveries about my baby and I am having a good time. I am also thinking about another child, so thank you again when the time comes.

We used the timing method over 3 years. It took a while, but I was very happy when the child was born safely.

Patient: Y.

About a year before my child was born, the first result of IVF came back with a negative pregnancy test. I was depressed then. I am very grateful to have had such a happy day a year later. Until birth, I was worried and anxious about whether I could give birth safely, but with the support of many people, I was able to succeed, and now I hold my child in my arms. I'm really glad I didn't give up. Thank you very much.

It is a life that would not have been born without the help of Oak Clinic doctors, nurses, and embryologists. Thank you very much.

It was very difficult to give birth, but the number of families has increased and the ties between the families have become very deep. It’s all worth it.

To be honest, when I started going to treatment, I didn't think much about in vitro fertilization, but soon after I started treatment, I followed the doctor’s advice to step up to IVF.

At that time, I was worried and struggled. Although I understood the situation in my head, I was not feeling well. I was very encouraged by the doctor's words.

Thanks to you, about a year after I decided to step up to in vitro fertilization, I was able to hold my child to my chest. Without that, I might not have had a child yet. Thank you so much for the support. The treatment was burdensome to my body, but I was glad I did my best when I saw the smile of my son who was born well. I can forget the pain. If possible, I would like to try for a second child as well. We will be grateful then, too.

Patient: M.

Thanks to you, I was able to give birth to my second son safely this year.
I am grateful to all the doctors and staff for their kindness, more thankful than I can say. The second son will soon be four months old. He sleeps well, moves his hands well, laughs a lot, and it’s great to see him growing up.
During years of treatment, I was depressed if I had a miscarriage or negative results. Every time, the doctor encouraged me with reminders about the situation of probability. I am very grateful that I have a happy time now with the help of my eldest son.
If I hadn't met you... I can't imagine. In order to increase the possibilities as much as possible, I tried everything (Chinese medicine, embryo transfer method, etc.).
I don't know if my experience can be used as a reference, but for those who are worried about the results, if you believe in what you can do without thinking and waiting, you will surely see hope, and I wish you good luck. From now on, I would like to cooperate with my husband and do my best to help my children grow up healthy.
Thank you to everyone at Oak Clinic.

I gave birth to a girl safely. I have two daughters and I am having a lively life. We hope that it will be a good year for all the doctors and staff.

Patient: A.

How are you, doctors? My son is growing up big and healthy all year round. Everyone, please take care of yourself and do your best at work.

Patient: I.

I received fertility treatment at Oak Sumiyoshi Obstetrics and Gynecology Department, gave birth to a child, and was able to give birth to my eldest son safely. I had been given it before, but I had a miscarriage in 16 weeks and was at the bottom of my despair, but with the encouragement of the doctors, nurses, and staff there, I was treated again and I was able to receive it safely. I will be 3 years old this year at the earliest.
I often catch colds and run to the hospital, which can be difficult, but recently I've been talking a lot and I'm happy every day to calm my family. I am very grateful to the doctors and staff for giving me such happiness. I'm really thankful to you. I will never forget this kindness.
It will be a tough job 24 hours a day, but please take care of yourself and stay healthy this year. We pray for your good health.

Both mother and child were hospitalized for a long time, but both children are growing up well. Both pregnancy and childbirth were due to the power of medicine. I'm glad I was born in this modern age when it is possible to do this kind of thing. I'm really thankful to you. I'm glad I went to Oak Clinic.

Patient: T.

I had to be hospitalized to avoid miscarriage and I gave birth to a boy. Now, my baby, my husband, and I are very happy together and have a good time every day. I received fertility treatment not only because I was old and worried about the aging of oocytes, but also because my endometriosis and AMH tests were very low.
When I learned of my AMH I cried on the spot, and I remember having a nurse comfort me. At that time, the doctors and nurses encouraged me too, so I was able to proceed with fertility treatment in a bright and positive manner.
After I became pregnant, I was hospitalized three times due to an imminent miscarriage, so I worried all the time. Fortunately, the doctors and nurses taught me kindly to help me relax. I'm really happy to meet my baby. Thank you very much.

Patient: T.

Last year I was able to give birth to a healthy boy. When I first went to Oak Clinic, I was worried, but the doctor put my mind at ease.
We tried the timing method but couldn't get pregnant. When IVF was suggested, I was at a loss because of anxiety and worries, but I took on the challenge with the help of my doctor. My husband also actively cooperated.
I collected oocytes twice, but when I couldn't make oocytes and I was about to give up with tears, I asked my doctor to listen to me and encourage me. Thanks to various methods, I was able to reach from oocyte pick-up to fertilization for the third time.
I was able to get pregnant with the second transplant. I'm really thankful to you. During that time, I am grateful to the doctors and staff for their hard work supported by the bright smiles and words. Now, I am happy with my husband and we are raising this lovely child together. I'm glad I really did my best. Thank you very much.

Patient: S.

During the treatment period, my heart broke over and over again, and I cried in front of the nurse several times. However, thanks to the encouragement of the nurse at that time, I was able to do my best with hope. I really thank you. The joy of getting pregnant cannot be expressed in words.
After that, I was hospitalized for an imminent miscarriage in the 5th and 6th weeks of pregnancy, and I was very grateful to the doctors and nurses at that time as well. I was really happy during my pregnancy. I had preeclampsia and gave birth 10 days earlier than the scheduled date using a labor-promoting agent, but my boy was born safely. I'm full of energy. It's strange that my son is in front of me now. Thanks to the doctors, nurses, and staff for coming this far. I am sincerely grateful. I think you are doing a really hard job, but please continue to take care of yourself and do your best. You can support many people who are working hard to have a baby.

Patient: N.

The other day, I gave birth to a girl safely. Perhaps she was comfortable in my stomach, she didn't come out until the 41st week! I was hospitalized and had an induced delivery, labor was only an hour or so. Now I’m busy every day, but I'm having a happy life with my eldest son who has finally become an older brother.
I'm really grateful that he gave me an early chance to meet this child specifically, through this method of getting pregnant. It's been three years since I started using the timing method at another hospital, but I wish I had stepped up a little earlier. There was still a big wall to step into IVF, but considering that I had a daughter in this way, I am really glad that I made the decision. And I'm really grateful to all the staff who listened to my complaints and encouraged me every time.
Thank you for remembering me and listening to me, it was a driving force for me to continue the treatment. thank you very much.

I am happy that both mother and child are healthy and safe. Thanks to the doctors and staff. I did my best in fertility treatment, pregnancy and childbirth. We are looking forward to hearing from you.

Patient: T.

I'm full of happiness now, but during the treatment for about two years, I had a hard time with anxiety and expectations.
When I was about to get sick during the treatment, I thought I couldn't have a baby anymore, and when I asked the doctor, I was encouraged to do my best. I was full of anxiety but because of the kindness of the nurses and others, I survived.
The oocytes that the embryologist carefully raised have grown so large.
Thank you very much to everyone. We will take good care of our children, who have been cherished by many people.

Patient: T.

Finally, I got pregnant by ICSI, but I had bleeding immediately after I became pregnant. I was hospitalized three times due to an imminent miscarriage, and sometimes I thought it must be impossible, but after leaving Oak Clinic, everything turned out okay.
I am deeply grateful to the doctors, nurses, cleaners, cooks, staff, and many others of Oak Clinic because I gave birth to a child safely. I couldn't get this joy without going to Oak Clinic. I'm really thankful to you.

Patient: S.

This time last year, I was praying "Please get pregnant..." every day. One year after that, I was able to get pregnant and gave birth to a girl safely. I'm having a happy day, hugging my daughter. There were many painful and sad things I went through to come to this point, but thanks to the doctors, I was able to meet my daughter. I am full of gratitude and so is my husband. I'm really thankful to you.

Patient: K.

At Oak Sumiyoshi Obstetrics and Gynecology, I had 5 or more oocyte pick-ups and 25 transplants. To be honest, it wasn't short. I read Dr. Taguchi’s book over and over again with a feeling of urgency. But now, I think it might have been the time I needed.
Pregnancy, childbirth and childcare really teach you a lot. I'm really glad that I had that experience. I feel even stronger because there was a period of infertility. We would like to thank all the Oak Clinic staff for giving us this opportunity. I'm really grateful.

Patient: S.

Thank you very much to all the doctors and staff for their kindness during the hospital visit and hospitalization. I gave birth to a healthy girl safely. There were times when I felt like I couldn't go on, but I was able to do my best positively thanks to the doctors and staff. Now, I have achieved my dream of holding my baby. Raising children is difficult, but children are cute and very important. Thank you.

Patient: A.

I was treated at Oak Clinic, and I was able to get pregnant because of that. I've been there for a little over a year, but I'm really grateful to the doctors, nurses, embryologists, and receptionists for their help during that time. I firmly remember the encouragement and advice I received from everyone. We must cherish the lives that result from this. I’m so thankful!

Patient: K.

Thank you very much for your kindness in our fertility treatment. I didn't get pregnant easily. I thought I shouldn't be overwhelmed, but I still had a lot of emotions. I was very grateful to you for answering questions and requests politely while you were busy. Thanks to you, I have given birth to a girl this year. I think that you will take care of me again when I want a second child. In that case, we appreciate your support.

Patient: S.

I was hospitalized after the scheduled delivery date, my baby's heartbeat dropped during induction and labor, and I had a sudden Caesarean section. Life is unpredictable! I feel like I've done everything I can do. It was a tough birth, but someday I will tell my child who I wanted so much about this. I can't really thank everyone enough. And if I visit again, thank you for that too!

Patient: O.

The daily injection of in vitro fertilization was difficult, but it was encouraging that the nurse always told me to do my best. There was a time when I was at a loss to continue the treatment, but the doctor said, "There is still plenty of potential, so let's do our best next time." It was true. I'm really glad I didn't quit. I am really grateful to the doctors and staff. Thank you very much.

Patient: H.

Thank you to all the doctors for your kindness and positivity. I am grateful from the bottom of my heart. Thank you to all the staff for always smiling and treating me well.

Patient: T.

I was worried about what would happen if I was hospitalized due to bleeding a little after the 5th week after my pregnancy was discovered, but I am grateful to everyone and now we are joyful. Infertility treatment is a tunnel with no visible exit. In my case, I felt more painful about the mental pressure than the treatment itself, and I almost felt like my heart would break. I think that there are many people who are still having a hard time and need your help. Thank you very much for all your help. I will keep on with my pregnancy thanks to you.

Patient: H.

It was the first cycle since I was transferred to another hospital, and I never thought I could get pregnant. Everything good that has happened is thanks to the doctors, nurses, and embryologists. I'm really thankful to you. It's been three years since I started fertility treatment, and although I had a lot of pain, I realized the importance of life. I want to bring up the precious life that I finally received and hold it with my hands. If I can give birth safely, I will remember that it is the life I have been given thanks to everyone, and I will take good care of it. I think it's a really tough job 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, but please continue to take good care of yourself for patients who are working hard for their babies. I'm really thankful to you.

Patient: M.

I'm really thankful to you. It was thanks to the staff who encouraged me that I was able to endure both the painful treatment and the self-injection. I'm really happy that I can finally get pregnant. It was really encouraging to see the nurses cheerfully and kindly treating me when collecting oocytes. I really thank you. I will do my best to give birth to a healthy child. Please continue to support many people so that they can become pregnant.

Patient: Y.

I gave birth to a girl safely and my daughter is healthy and growing well. After seeing Dr. Taguchi appearing on TV, I read her book and decided to go to Oak Clinic because I thought I could do my best with this doctor. Infertility treatment is a mental battle, but after reading the doctor's book many times, I came to think positively. If I hadn't met my doctor, I might still be suffering from infertility. I am really grateful to be able to hold my child. I think you are still busy, but please continue to do your best.
