It started when Gladys attended the on-board welcome cocktail reception as her cruise ship departed from Seattle. Attracted to Gladys at the party, a charming gentleman introduced himself. Unaccustomed to his distinctive British accent, Gladys asked her travel buddy to help understand the nuances of the “king’s English.” The couple eventually married and began their trans-Atlantic life, he living in Britain and she in the U.S.

Although Gladys had children, the couple relished starting a family together but medical tests showed their best chance would be with the help of a fertility specialist. They visited doctors in the U.K. but the couple decided to seek help in “The States.” A friend recommended they visit a clinic in California where they met Dr. David Diaz.  At the clinic, a prompt diagnosis was made and treatment was planned around the couple’s special living arrangements. His semen sample was frozen and stored before work obligations beckoned in England.

Using in-vitro fertilization, the eggs were fertilized with the thawed sperm and healthy embryos developed in five days. To prevent multiple births, the clinic’s protocol is to transfer just two blastocysts. Happily, two weeks later, a positive pregnancy led to tears of joy and hugs all around. The proud Dad shared in the celebration as the image of the embryo was instantly e-mailed to him across the world in the U.K.

While the Royals prepared for their special day, the British government declared a special holiday of two 4-day weekends in honor of The Prince and future Princess. The celebration made it possible for the new parents to visit California where they hosted a wonderful luncheon for the Staff at West Coast Fertility Centers. They surprised the staff with gifts from England – Cadbury chocolate and a pair of commemorative goblets featuring the images of William and Kate. Congratulations to both couples on their memorable occasions!!
