A few years ago my husband and I had our third child. After her birth, we felt like we had a perfect and complete family – two amazing little boys and a sweet little baby girl. We chose a permanent method of birth control called Essure.
Never in a million years did we think that just over one year later, we would suffer the most feared nightmare of a parent – the loss of our loving, spirited, amazing 19-month-old daughter. It is so beyond words to describe that pain as a parent, or the pain we watched our young sons go through.
As time wore on, we found ourselves yearning for baby laughter in our home again. We wanted to have another baby so badly and deeply regretted our decision to place the ‘permanent’ Essure in my tubes as a method of birth control.
Originally, we were told our only option to have another child was IVF. Upon research, we discovered that a few doctors were having some favorable results actually reversing the Essure procedure. We researched for doctors that had successfully performed Essure reversals, and ultimately chose Dr. Rosenfeld for this complicated reversal. His impeccable reputation as a surgeon, the phone consultation he provided, as well as the kindness and attention his staff gave us helped us to make this difficult decision.
We could not be happier with our results! We became pregnant just four months after the Essure reversal and had our little rainbow baby in June. This beautiful, happy-go-lucky little girl is such a joy to our family and has brought new hope to us. Her brothers dote on her and her always-ready sunshine smile helps us keep our hearts light.
When our Ob/Gyn finished delivering our TR baby via C-section, she looked at the surgery sites where each of my fallopian tubes meet my uterus (where Essure is placed and causes scar tissue) and said the repair looked beautiful and both fallopian tubes were wide open! A testament to a talented surgeon.
Thank you, thank you, thank you Dr. Rosenfeld and staff, you were an answer to our prayers.
