GREENSBORO — After years of infertility, a 50-year-old woman in North Carolina is now the mother of a healthy baby girl.
In a press releaseCone Health reported that Greensboro couple Susie Troxler and Tony Troxler welcomed Lily Antonia Troxler to their home on September 29.
“It was so surreal,” said Susie in a news release from the hospital. “Everything had come together for that moment to happen. It’s hard to wrap our heads around – we’re no longer just husband and wife, we’re ‘mommy’ and ‘daddy.’”
The Troxlers wanted to have a family. But after 13 years, nothing.
That’s until they met Dr. Carolyn Harraway-Smith.
“Near the end of my appointment, Dr. Harraway-Smith asked, ‘Is there anything else,’” Troxler said. “If she hadn’t asked that question, then this baby probably wouldn’t be here.”
After discussing a plan, the group decided that in-vitro fertilization would be a good option.
The couple tried IVF for two years without success.
The couple was able to conceive with their last embryo.
“We’re just honored to be the parents of somebody like her and have the chance to watch all of this unfold because medically this was impossible, but she’s here,” Susie said.
