Growing up I knew I always wanted children. Just how many was the question. When I was married at an early age of 21 I had already given birth and my first son was two years old. Several years passed and we decided to have another child. Both boys were healthy and the center of my life. I decided after the birth of my second son to have my tubes tied. This is a decision that I would regret later on. My second son was born in 1998 and in 2000 my marriage would soon fall apart. We were divorced and went our separate ways.
After some time passed I was fortunate enough to meet my wonderful husband Dave. In December 2008 we decided after many years together that it was time to tie the knot and we knew we both wanted to try to have a child together which would require surgery for this to be a possibility. After much research we found Dr. Levin on the internet and were delighted that he was in the Louisville area in which we lived.
In February 2009 we were married and soon started planning my tubal reversal. My surgery was set for mid March. In scheduling my surgery I had to be very careful with my weight. I was on the upper end of the cut off for Dr. Levin to perform surgery on me. Also we did not know how long my tubes were when they tied them so Dr. Levin had no idea how much he had to work with going into the surgery. The surgery went well and the recovery was 6 long weeks
Exactly 439 days after my tubal reversal we were blessed with a beautiful, healthy boy, Alexander Thomas Swanson. I could not have asked for a more perfect son. From the moment I laid my eyes on him, tears were in my eyes. To know he was the product of love and the miracle of a doctor that has passion for helping people reach their dreams. The pregnancy was a tough one but in the end we are truly grateful for our wonderful bundle of joy!
Our experience with Dr. Levin was extremely wonderful from the very first contact we made to the day of my surgery. We knew that we were in good hands and if we had a chance at having a baby Dr. Levin would be the one to help us achieve this goal. The feeling I have being a mom all over again is unbelievable. I only hope that other parents that want a second chance at parenthood have this opportunity.
Its worth everything we went through and the gamble paid off in so many ways. Thanks to Dr. Levin and all his staff for everything they did to make our dream become a reality!
Thanks so very much,
Jennifer, David, and Alexander Swanson
