Help Kelsey and Jack have IVF

We have been trying to become parents to our own child together since September 2017.

Since the start of our journey we have lost 9 babies through recurrent miscarriage and rare interstitial ectopic and heterotopic twin pregnancy which resulted in emergency surgery to remove one of Kelseys fallopian tubes aswell as the pregnancy. 

Kelsey then received a diagnosis of polycystic ovary syndrome, this along side only one fallopian tube has made our chances of conceiving even smaller.

Recently after an 8 month wait on our appeal to Matt Hancock, the government health Secretary, we have still been declined NHS funding on the basis Kelsey is not classed as "childless" as Jack already has two children from a previous relationship. 

We have been let down by the NHS on too many an occasion throughout our journey and now by the government and the outdated ccg guidelines that are based on non clinical matters such as your postcode or partners already having children.  

We have now been left with no other choice but to seek help privately in the hope we can finally get the right help and treatment to  try and bring a healthy baby home.

Private fertility treatment comes with a huge price tag, even more so as we need more than a cycle of IVF.
Having found the best private clinic for our journey we have a treatment plan in place that means we need IVF, PGT-A, NK cell and immunity testing aswell.

All of these treatments  and medications on top come with additional costs which is totalling nearly £15,000.

Imagine being told that's the potential price to hopefully become a parent.  Our hearts have been broken and we really need your help to one day soon hopefully bring home our baby.

Whilst we are aware IVF doesn't guarantee a baby this is our only chance of getting anyway close to it and we have no options left and after nearly 4 years we are emotionally and physically reaching the end of our journey.
