Precious Conceptions is a Family Building Consultancy that helps and supports those going through fertility issues. We heard about the seminar that is happening on Saturday, 12th of December, 2015 and decided to catch up with Toyin Lolu-Ogunmade to learn more about the seminar.
What’s your motivation for this…why are you so passionate about helping people?
My almost 13 years struggle with infertility is the foundation of Precious Conceptions. During my journey into motherhood, I realised I did not have anyone guide, counsel and advice me on what to do which, I believe, could have greatly helped me.
Coming across several women with similar experiences launched my quest for helping women find timely diagnosis and solution to their problems as well as giving them the necessary support during the process. I also realize there is still a lot of ignorance,uncertainty, stigma, myths and mystery surrounding infertility and assisted reproductive treatments which could basically be reduced by education and awareness.
On a regular basis, I see women who long to have their own children. I see the pain and sorrow in their hearts through their eyes. I see the confusion sometimes and despair. A lot of them do not know what to do or where to start from. They are lonely, desperate and scared…I see these because I have been there.
I hope Precious Conceptions would be to them that which was lacking for me – a bridge to cross all the gaps in your quest for parenthood.
Do you have any success stories. Please share
Yes we do! We have helped several families on their journey in the years we have been in existence. I started PC in 2012 but formally had it registered in 2014.
In 2010, whilst still in India, a family contacted me. They had been going through fertility challenges and wanted to know what next to do. They were considering adoption and I showed them what to do and where to go. About seven months later, they had their beautiful baby girl adopted and brought home. It was a joyous time. They have gone ahead to adopt another baby again.
In 2012, a woman we worked with delivered her much beloved son after several painful miscarriages. She took our counsel and we referred her to a specialist who manages bad obstetric cases and she had that baby.
In 2013, three families were blessed with male children, one through IVF, another through IVF/surrogacy, another through natural conception after several miscarriages.
In 2014, we had a visiting specialist from India and several families were able to see him for second opinion on their issues. I am glad to say some of those families who continued with us after that visit are expecting to be parents soon as they are in various stages of pregnancy already.
Recently, another family we worked with was blessed with a baby girl. They naturally conceived after going through surgery and counsel. We also have several families at several stages of counseling with us and our pray all their desires would be fulfilled.
