Dear Normal Pregnancy Doctor

Dear Normal Pregnancy Doctor,
We want to thank you for taking the time to read this letter, and ask that you share it with your staff and add it to our file.
ML and I have been together for 11 years, married for 7. After trying to start our family for nearly two years, we received a devastating diagnosis of infertility. We spent the next year and a half meeting with so many different doctors, undergoing invasive testing procedures, trying experimental therapies, and ultimately grieving the loss of a biological child. 
This past March, thanks to the miracles of modern medicine, we finally succeeded with IVF. We are excited, yet still feeling very cautious about this pregnancy. After getting bad news for so long, I guess it takes some time for good news to sink in and feel real. 
We are so happy to be graduating from the RE to your practice. In most respects we are normal first-time expectant parents, yet having invested so much into achieving this pregnancy we may at times benefit from some extra hand-holding and compassion. 
Specifically there are a few things we’d like to request of you and your team:
    • We’ve been through a lot, and appreciate your patience, kindness, and smiles more than words can convey. 
    • Foxy prefers not to be left alone in exam rooms. ML will attend most appointments and would like to join Foxy for any tests or exams.
    • We prefer not to learn the gender of our child until the birth. 
    • Before the end of our visit, or conversation, please ask us if we have any final questions. 
    • We live and work in the next county over, so appointments are most convenient for us in the late afternoon. 
Thank you for taking good care of us.
Foxy and ML
