Hi, I would like to take this moment to introduce ourselves, my name is Dane and my amazing wife is Leann, together we are the Herbertsons.
We have been married for 6 years now and have been trying to expand our family for that time.These 6 years have not been the easiest however I would not change a thing except one, and that would be to have a baby, but I guess its best to start from the beginning.
Not long after getting married we started to plan our family and for the first couple of years we didnt have too much in the way of concern, as we knew it sometimes takes a while to concieve, that and a rather unfortunate motorcycle accident on my part threw a slight spanner in the works but we carried on.
After year 3 of trying to become parents and seeing friends and family start their families we became worried so we went to see our doctor who then referred us to a specialist and we began testing and treatments. This was a particularly rough time for my wife Leann as she discovered she has PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) and started to believe it was her "fault" that we hadn't had a baby yet. But we kept going as we both long to be parents more than anything in the world. Then at the very end of last year we had a glimmer of hope as we were told that we were eligable to recieve 3 rounds of IVF through the national health service, as you can imagine we were elated and began to make plans.
Unfortunately those plans were dashed to pieces as one day I got a phone call informing me that because we lived in a certain area our funding had been cut and our only other option was to go private. We were heartbroken but I promised my wife we would get through this like we have everything else.
But unfortunately we cannot do this alone. That is where you come in please help us reach our dream.
Any help whether big or small will be greatly appreciated and when baby-H arrives he or she will know how much others helped their Mummy and Daddy
