Infertility is emotionally draining for almost everyone experiencing it. The couple tries, day and night, praying at 12 midnight and then 7 am, eating and drinking the best concoctions and meals, sometimes dashing home through traffic to try a back-breaking sex position, so that the sperm can meet the egg at the golden hour of ovulation.

The journey to creating the fruit of love varies from couple to couple as relationships also vary; however, the key element in the journey is the love. There’s no love, except two are involved.

Besides, twins are so cute! And also, if we are paying so much for this procedure, we might as well have value for our money, yes?” Having siblings born on the same day is a very beautiful experience in pictures.

Imagine having to travel to a distant and foreign land with new languages, food and culture to pick and adapt to, the fertility nurse here is your “tour guide” and special advocate or guardian.
