#2:  Christina Bancroft and her frozen embryo transfer


In Episode Two, I chat with Fairport resident, Christina Bancroft.  She and her husband struggled with infertility for eight years before undergoing a frozen embryo transfer using donor eggs.  Hear all about their journey from fertility treatments arriving at their doorstep, to what kept them strong and sane during those years, and how they eventually ended up at a clinic in Washington State.  

Get your tissues ready for the moment when after eight years of waiting, Christina finally hears a nurse say "Congratulations, you're pregnant!"  and she drives to her husband's police station to give him the news.  


*My voice is slightly quiet in this podcast, but you can hear Christina loud and clear - which is great because she has one amazing story!
