New Life Women’s Health & Infertility of North Texas,
When I rock my newborn son to sleep I often look at his peaceful eyes and whisper to him that he is “my miracle boy.” I wrote him a letter when I was pregnant in a blue journal my mother in law gifted to me, and I told him what a long journey it was to have him in our lives. I named my son Samuel after the Book of Samuel because his mother was also ‘infertile’ and still conceived her son. I truly believe that if I had not specifically undergone NaPro Technology/Creighton Model with Dr. Jones I would not have Samuel today.
As a science major and science teacher I was always fascinated by advances in medicine, but it never occurred to me that IVF would be in my vocabulary. After a year and a half of seeing a regular OB/GYN she suggested I go see a specialist and do IVF. She essentially washed her hands of my case and signed a reference sheet and sent me on my way. I prayed about this and I knew that this was not the way I wanted my baby to come into this world. The day my husband and I got married our wedding photographer asked us to kneel at the alter for a photo, as she snapped her camera I prayed for our marriage to be blessed with children. Little did I know that my answered prayer would come 3 years later via NaPro Technolgy and Dr. Jones guiding my treatment plan.
I discovered NaPro through a Natural family planning course with Holly Barril offered at our church back in 2013, when my husband and I were engaged to be married the summer of 2014. Our first year of marriage was not all bliss when I started to have a gut feeling that month after month I was getting negative pregnancy tests. I knew it took time, but something told me that I needed to get checked out. In 2015 I decided to contact Dr. Jones for a consultation. With the help of Creighton Model classes I took with Holly Barril, I was able to track many important aspects of my fertility. After several appointments Dr. Jones was able to piece together what seemed like a jig saw puzzle of issues and pin point some areas that may be causing the infertility. He tailored a protocol specifically for me and my body, and was able to work through my natural cycles and body’s rhythm.
We discovered various issues such as endometriosis, PCOS, low progesterone, hyperprolactemia, luteal phase defect and other items that needed to be addressed. After my first appointment with Dr. Jones December 2015, I got pregnant in April 2016. Unfortunately my first pregnancy resulted in a miscarriage; but after I recovered emotionally and physically I believed in NaPro more than ever before. Dr. Jones had helped us get pregnant in less than 6 months while my previous doctor got nowhere in 18 months. About 5 months after my pregnancy loss I discovered I was once pregnant with Samuel November 2016. I could not believe that I conceived naturally two times in 2016 with NaPro technolgy. I call Dr. Jones my ‘earth angel’ when I tell my family about who I was seeing for help with my infertility. I always felt his true caring nature towards me and my husband, and his patience and passion for healing women like myself. He was the first person who hugged me when we discovered my first pregnancy was unsuccessful. And he patted my shoulder as I cried in his exam room.
Dr. Jones was also the first person to catch Samuel as he made his grand entrance into the world on August 2, 2017. And he once again patted me on my shoulder as I cried tears of joy this time in the hospital room. I continue to chart with Creighton Model and whole heartedly believe my experience with NaPro technology was how I was meant to conceive Samuel. My husband and I hope to expand our family again someday and give Samuel a sibling or two, and I will continue see Dr. Jones when that time comes. For now, Samuel has enriched our lives, and every time I look at him I know that miracles do happen, because he is mine.
