Since starting Baby4You under the Tests4Less name in 2002, we have often been invited to share in the joys and disappointments that couples have experienced after embarking on their trying to conceive journey.
It has been a pleasure and a privilege to have personally connected with so many wonderful people through the service we offer. In turn we would like to take this opportunity to share with you something of our own personal journey that has led us to where we are today.
Through professional work and qualifications in the fields of the Biological Sciences, Health, Social Work, Education and Counselling - along with our own personal experiences - we have developed a long-standing interest in fertility related issues. During the first eighteen years of our married life, an unrealised dream of having children brought us face-to-face with a range of underlying fertility issues that were discovered through various medical tests and investigations. Through this lengthy struggle we came to understand the frustration, disappointment and financial drain that come with experiencing fertility issues.
Having reconciled ourselves to a life without children, when nearing our fortieth and fiftieth birthdays in December of 2002, I was unexpectedly struck down with a ‘mystery illness’. Symptoms included extreme tiredness, stomach pains, nausea and vomiting. Medical investigations eventually revealed the impossible – I was pregnant!
Unfortunately the joy of that discovery – and my dream of being a stay-at-home mum - was tempered by a series of pregnancy-related illnesses that saw me being bed-rested at home and in hospital for the majority of my pregnancy. This unexpected set-back led us both to spend this time thinking of ways in which we could help other couples.
Having personally learned a lot from our own infertility experiences and having spent a considerable amount of money along the way it seemed obvious we should move to provide ‘online’ home-based fertility products, general support and education to help others on their journey to parenthood. After all, we now had our beautiful son, Hamish, (born on August 10, 2002 - three weeks early by emergency caesarean section).
From these small beginnings our business has grown and in June 2006 we restructured our business under the brand name Baby4You, with a fresh new on-line look and expanded product range.
We take pride in offering a fast and friendly customer service and support. If you have any questions (don’t be embarrassed or hesitant - just ask us!) We will always answer queries regarding our products or fertility testing in general through our contact us page.
