Mie and Jun went to the same junior high school. Some years later upon meeting again at a class reunion, they fell in love. Soon they started talking about marriage and life together. They made their plans for the big day; however, shortly before the wedding day, Jun discovered that he had a rare hereditary disease that could potentially impact their future children and life together in a dramatic way. He was not sure what to do, so he asked Mie to make the final decision – they could break up or spend the rest of their life together. She decided that life with Jun was her destiny and that together they would try to overcome their life obstacles.
After the wedding, they began to plan their future and family. They recognized that Jun's hereditary condition would need to be taken into consideration before they could have a child. In an effort to better understand their options, they began seeking reproductive medical advice. Some possible solutions came up – pre-implantation screening - but such a procedure was not easily available in Japan. Many hurdles and processes would need to be overcome.
Luckily, through Japan's Keio University Medical Hospital, the couple learned about Taipei's Hope Fertility & PGT Center-Reproductive Clinic's Reproductive Medicine and Embryo Genetic Testing service. They immediately pursued their journey to seek medical assistance in Taiwan.
In April 2018, Japanese doctors and Hope Clinic worked together to come up with an IVF treatment plan. After careful consideration of their options, the couple decided to proceed with the recommended plan and as a result, healthy embryos were transferred in 2019. In October 2020, Mie was able to give birth to a beautiful healthy baby boy.
After two years of hard work, their dream finally came true. Seeing the photos of the baby, I am moved and deeply admire the courage, determination, and love they had for pursuing this baby.
Wiskott-Aldrich's Syndrome (WAS) is a rare disease with an abnormal immune system. WAS is caused by a recessive sex-linked genetic disease on the X chromosome. This disease is much more prevalent in men than woman. A male born from a carrier mother has a 50 % chance of getting sick. A female child has a 50% chance of becoming a carrier and a 50% chance of being completely normal. Those who have the disease experience a number of health issues, including a fragile immune system, low platelet counts and eczema. Currently the most effctive treatment is a bone marrow transplant.
A young Japanese couple came to Hope Fertility & PGT Center in Taiwan to seek medical treatment for WAS ‒ they were hoping to be able to give birth to a healthy baby. They came to Taiwan in July for an egg retrieval. Embryos were then created at Hope Fertility & PGT Center and underwent a PGT-M process to help uncover healthy normal embryos. The couple then came back later in November for an embryo implant. Within a year, the couple gave birth to a healthy baby girl.
A couple in the Philippines gave birth to a baby boy named Alab. However, it was soon discovered that he was suffering from Thalassemia – a severe disease in which a person cannot produce any functional alpha globulin that is responsible for carrying oxygen around the body. Usually, most babies will die from this disease due to severe anaemia and hypoxia in their mother's womb, or shortly after birth. Miraculously, This baby boy, Alab, survived.
However, he had to undergo a blood transfusion every 2-3 weeks. He is the first and only survivor of this disease in the Philippines and one of the few rare cases reported worldwide. In an effort to find help for Alab and to lessen his suffering, the parents came to Hope Fertility & PGT Center - Reproductive Medicine and Embryo Genetic Testing. Here they discussed various options and decided that with the help of PGT-M technology screening, they would try to have another child that could help the older brother to obtain the needed cord blood and stem cells to help alleviate his condition. The couple created embryos, had them screened with PGT-M technology and clinic know-how and a year later Alab had a little sister who would be able to help him live a happier and healthier life.
Hi, my name is Ben, from Macau. My wife and I had been struggling for years with IVF treatments to fulfil our dream of having a child. We spent more than five years, a lot of money and personal energy trying IVF treatments in Macau, only to later learn that much of those treatments we received and paid for were fake.
Some time later, after taking a break from our treatments, we were pleasantly surprised to learn that she was pregnant. It was great news; unfortunately, the baby had a chromosomal disorder. We thought long and hard about what to do and finally decided that the best option was to induce a labour induction. It was a very painful and traumatic experience for us.
After this series of events, we decided to investigate IVF treatment options abroad, outside of Macau. We found that Taiwan was a place well-known for its advanced PGT technology and know-how – much more so than most other Asian nations.
As a result, my wife and I decided to make the trip to Taiwan and seek out options for our future. We decided to work with Hope Fertility & PGT Center. We visited the clinic to seek advice and take some diagnostic tests. They were very professional and caring in their approach and understood our hopes and dreams. Thanks to Hope Fertility & PGT Center's PGT technology, a pair of twins were born to us.
We could not be happier that we took this journey to Taiwan to seek out IVF and PGT treatments. It worked for us and my wife and I encourage others who are having reproduction difficulties to explore their options too.
