My name is Robyn Birkin. I’m 34 years old and I’m from Perth in Western Australia.
My story is a crazy cocktail of ovulation inductions, IUI’s, IVF cycles, OHSS and ICSI, but not before a miscarriage rocked my world. I remember saying to my husband that I could deal with IVF, I could deal with OHSS, but not a miscarriage too….I could handle two things, but I couldn’t handle a third. Well, turns out I could deal with it, because I had to!
You’re stronger than you know babe, and so was I, but I didn’t realise it until I hit rock bottom. It honestly took everything I had to pull myself out of the trenches and soldier on. I reached into my soul and came out a warrior, and I was determined to succeed.
