Marcella and Antonio have finally welcomed their little girl thanks to Institut Marquès In-vitro fertilisation (IVF)
After many years of trying to become parents, Marcella and Antonio have finally welcomed their little girl thaks to Institut Marquès. A gift from heaven that has filled us with joy Dear all, Our beautiful baby is born and it is an immense joy for us. During all these months of pregnancy, Marcella has had no complications. The labor was induced naturally, the girl was born full term and is very healthy. With this email I want to inform you of how things have gone, but above all I want to thank you for what you have done for us. A very special thanks to our doctor, who literally took us by the hand at a time when things were not going well and we were going through a moment of great despair. Despite my continual questions and requests, perhaps too many, she had the patience to listen to us and the trust she instilled in our souls prompted us to move forward without giving up; a doctor must always provide the ability of listening and empathy, but in Italy we have not always found very understanding professionals. If we had not met her, we would have abandoned our dream, to avoid further frustrations and humiliations. Thanks to her empathy and professional competence, we were able to embark on the path that has led us to this splendid result. Our girl is a gift from heaven that has filled us with joy; Marcella and I will dedicate ourselves body and soul to giving her a happy existence. At the moment, we do not know if we will return in the future, we will let you know. But, in any case, whatever it may be, we will always carry you in our hearts and our affection and esteem for you all will be indelible, because you have given us our life back. Marcella and Antonio (Pisa, August 2020)

Creating families, a great mission Intrauterine insemination (IUI) unstimulated
Laura and Oriol were already parents to a boy that was conceived naturally. But they had to resort to Assisted Reproduction for their second child, due to secondary infertility. Creating families, a great mission Good morning, We are Laura and Oriol. We want to introduce you to our son Pol (he is almost 6 months old). Thanks to you, we managed to make our dream of being parents for the second time come true. After two long years of attempts, visiting various hospitals and doctors without success (they did not pay us much attention because we were already parents of a child conceived naturally) we started treatment with you and we got our great miracle after just one insemination attempt. Keep up the great work of helping to build families. We will be eternally grateful to you. Warm regards, Laura and Oriol (Girona, September 2020)

A being of light and hope Egg Donation
Alexandra and Xavier trust that Donor Egg IVF at Institut Marquès will make their dream of becoming parents come true and they have written a beautiful letter to their donor. A being of light and hope Dear donor: Tonight, while trying to sleep, I felt the need to say a few words to you; I don’t know if these will come into your hands or stay in this document, but I have felt that impulse. My life, luckily or unfortunately, (I have learned a lot) has not always been easy, but I have always gone over myself, obtaining more strength, inner wisdom and conscience. In this case, life once again placed some obstacle in our project (my husband’s and mine) to start a family, but this situation has given us strength, union, love, trust and support. and it has caused us to create an invincible tandem to face this new stage that will come into our lives. And here you come into play: we can only thank you for being someone that gave us light and hope on this path of motherhood / fatherhood. Thanks to you we are closer to achieving it. In my way of thinking, coincidences do not exist and life has put you on our way (although anonymously) to make our dream come true. I bless the moment you took this decision, for whatever reason, but thanks to this action, we might finally be able to create our own family. We only have to thank you again for your mission in this action. Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you! Alexandra and Xavier (Barcelona, June 2020)
