Testimonies

After six miscarriages, I became a mother


Audrey (43) was dumbfounded when a Life doctor said she could have a child anyway. After six miscarriages she and her husband Christiaan (38) had lost almost all hope.

Audrey: “We did not know what caused my miscarriages. In the meantime, there was no longer any prospect of treatment for me. We had already gone through all options. Still, I refused to give up my wish to have children, and so we ended up by Dr Valkenburg . I had nothing left to lose, so I emailed her. Apparently my mail had hit her because she called me on a Sunday and said she wanted to treat me.”

Audrey: “What did they do at Life? They examined me again and that went a lot faster. I had a very committed and loving team of specialists around me, who found out within a few weeks that I could not stay pregnant with my heart-shaped uterus.”

Dr Valkenburg: “Together with my team of specialists, I took the time to fully investigate Audrey. If you have had six miscarriages, something really is going on. In the end we operated on her. That is why she has become a mother.”

Dr Valkenburg: “Every woman with a pregnancy problem is different. To find out what the problem is, you have to solve a puzzle, because there are often several factors that play a role. Often women end up in fertility centers where they turn to their physicians with their problem. The head gynecologists are busy with other issues and do not see the patient. The doctors do not look at the total picture.”

Audrey: “I am especially happy that Eva (3.5 years old) is there. She is the best thing that happened to us. It is a treat every day to be with her and I love to be her mother. Eva is really our present.”
