My parenthood journey

Stay tuned this year for my journey to parenthood ………

10/7/19: Began the process towards parenthood, referrals will be made towards my GP in order to start the process of looking into referrals locally for funding (NHS) locally. I may or may not meet criteria and I am informed this could take the year to even become a possibility. I have been given a target weight and BMI and am also being referred for a extensive heart review at a speciality hospital and extensive bloods. I have also been directed to Daisy Network as a useful source for privatised care should I need.

4/10/19: I have yet to have any communication from my last appointment to myself and my GP therefore, I am currently 3  months later awaiting further input.

24/02/20: I have had a further appointment with London endocrinologist last month, six months down the line i was told that my last clinic appointment hadn’t been documented. The registrar that saw me appeared less than enthusiastic at the appointment however, i have subsequently recieved written said referral to my GP and i have got a clinic appointment for my heart check, this obviously will have to be governed by the current situation.

27/03/20: I received contact from my GP who advises due to the current crisis referrals may be paused. They however have advised that he will make the referral to the local gynae teams in order to begin the process for fertility treatment. I am to chase these referrals in a couple of months.
