Many women are now turning to IVF in an effort to have their own children and this woman’s Instagram post sums up the struggle she and many women go through while trying for a baby.


The woman, known as Macy, posted a photograph that captured the long and expensive journey she has been on to conceive her first child.


“It only took four years, three miscarriages, depression, 107 hormone injections, one surgery, two procedures, over 100 suppositories, and several thousand dollars to get our baby”



Macy has been documenting her experience of trying for a child on her blog, Martinis & Medicine, where she talks about the pain and tears she has gone through in the four years she has been trying to conceive.


She also had a heartbreaking message her babies that didn’t make it.

“To every single one of my babies, you were worth it.”



The mum-to-be says her honest posts act as encouragement to other women who struggle with infertility and to share the alternative way women conceive.


“When I look at that ultrasound my heart actually skips. For years I lived never knowing if I would ever have an ultrasound photo hanging on my fridge.


“I’m so in love I can hardly stand it.” Macy wrote.


Macy now shares pictures of her preparations to welcome her first child into the world including pictures of new purchases for her little one.
