After early testing by my GP which indicated Polycystic ovarian syndrome (although not conclusively), I was prepared for problems falling pregnant. When I went off the pill I had no cycle so there was no chance of falling pregnant. I decided to start with a naturopath however after six months of taking handfuls of tablets 3-4 times a day with no change or sign of a cycle I went back to the GP and was referred to a fertility clinic. After more blood tests than I can remember, one round of hormone fertility treatment and endless discussions with insensitive medical staff I was told that my only chance of conceiving was through IVF. I was not only heartbroken but physically and emotionally drained and demoralised from the whole process. I decided I was too young to try IVF (28) and that there had to be another way. I felt incredibly sad and desperate. I started ‘googling’ and came across Darren Grech.
My first appointment with him I didn’t hide my skeptism and explained that in my view I had already wasted a year trying to conceive, time was precious and ‘how long do you want me to give you before I give up (on homeopathy!). Whilst I am usually very open to alternative treatments, I explained that I couldn’t see how taking a few drops each day was going to manage to bring about change when injecting the hormones my body needed to ovulate directly into me hadn’t worked. Darren patiently asked me to give him at least 4 months and we would see if there was any change. Sure enough, 3 months later I had a menstrual cycle, 2 months after that I went through about 4 pregnancy tests before I could actually believe I was pregnant! It felt like a miracle and a blessing. We just couldn’t believe that after being told without doubt from fertility specialists that IVF was our ONLY option, that we had just conceived with the help of Homeopathy.
Darren was calm and constant and has a manner which was a complete contrast to those we encountered within Fertility Clinics, he asked questions, really listened and genuinely cared. I can honestly say we have Darren to thank for our beautiful little boy who has turned our world upside down and filled it with light and love. I am also grateful that I know and am aware and open to this whole other way of treating issues and illnesses, both for myself and my baby.
