Letters from Patients

❖When I saw the baby's face, I was so moved and happy that I forgot every challenge I faced up to this point.
I wasn't able to have children after getting married, so I was hesitant to treat infertility, but I'm glad I did.
I was worried about in vitro fertilization at first, but it was good that I was able to feel at ease by listening to the doctors and nurses at the hospital many times. Thank you very much.

❖After giving birth, the difficult days of fertility treatment have turned into very important memories.
I think that it is because of those days that I can do my best every day while being happy with my child and family. Thank you everyone.

❖I was really happy when my child was born.
Because there was an Oak Clinic nearby, I was able to use IVF.
I really appreciate all the Oak staff when I see my four-month-old son.
Despite my worries, I thought I wanted to regret trying instead of regretting not trying.
Meeting my child was amazing. It's difficult to put words into letters, but thank you from the bottom of my heart.
