July 2020

After trying to conceive for several years, my husband and I finally decided to ask for help. Asking for help is not always an easy thing to do but I’m so glad that we did! My family doctor referred me to my OBYGN because he suspected that I had Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). My OBYGN said that I had outgrown PCOS because I had regular periods for the last couple of years. She also ran bloodwork tests and sent me for a Sonohysterography test which revealed that my left Fallopian tube was blocked. I always knew, just like an instinct, that something was wrong or not right. Even though my instincts were confirmed and I felt a mix of emotions, I was reassured by my OBGYN that I could still conceive with one clear/open Fallopian tube.
As a result, we were referred to Dr. Sony Sierra at the TRIO Fertility Clinic by my OBGYN last January 2019. We had our first consultation with Dr. Sony Sierra in March 2019 and I knew she would be able to help us as she specialized in PCOS. After meeting Dr. Sony Sierra, I felt like there was hope to one day be a Mama! We were really fortunate that I was able to conceive during the cycle monitoring process, which is not always the case for some people dealing with fertility issues. We now have a healthy and happy 6 month old son!!!! Thank you to Dr. Sony Sierra and the staff at the TRIO Fertility Clinic for your expertise, compassion, and professionalism. We highly recommend Dr. Sony Sierra and the Trio Fertility Clinic to anyone struggling with their fertility journey.

On February 26, 2020, our perfect, healthy son Camden was born and our long awaited family of three was finally a reality.
After a year of no success in trying to expand our family, we we're referred to TRIO based on recommendations from our family physician and acquaintances. Not only was Dr. Abrol kind, patient, and supportive, but she tailored a plan that perfectly aligned with our comfort levels to hopefully achieve our goal. After several failed IUI attempts, we were fortunate enough to quickly go through an OHIP funded IVF/FET cycle, and we were successful with our first transfer! The pregnancy was incredibly smooth sailing from start to finish.
We cannot put into words our gratitude for Dr Abrol and the entire team at TRIO for their wonderful care and assistance in bringing us our baby boy, we couldn’t be happier and highly recommend the clinic

Dear Dr. Nayot, Bridgette and TRIO team,

We can't even begin to describe our gratitude for everything you have done for us. If it wasn't for you we wouldn't have our miracle baby girl, Peyton. Thank you for making our dream come true, it will not be forgotten. Thank you for what you do, you all were very compassionate and knowledgeable. I am now a mom, a dream I never thought that would come true

I wanted to share the amazing news that we had our baby, Reyes!

After 10 years of multiple clinics, doctors, IUIs and IVF, we are very thankful that our journey led us to TRIO and Dr. Nayot. We are grateful for your expertise, guidance and knowledge as well as the support of your team at TRIO. It was honestly a seamless and non-stressful time since I arrived at TRIO in October 2018 and with the egg donor process.

My husband Mike and I would like to thank Dr. Cadesky and the amazing team of doctors and nurses at TRIO for giving us our beautiful little girl Arya. Arya was born on Dec 6 and our hearts are so full. Through IVF/FET we were able to turn our family into three. The professionalism, kindness and care we received throughout our time with TRIO was excellent. Thank you so much 💗

 J & P

We always thought that having kids would come so easy for us. We got pregnant only trying for a few months, but that ended with a miscarriage then happened two more times. ⠀

Our OB referred us to Dr. Nayot. I thought this was a nightmare that my worse fears were coming true. Little did I know it was a blessing in disguise. Dr. Nayot gave us hope, he ran tests and it was an insight on why this was happening. It was determined that I had PCOS which I couldn’t believe, but with the help of Dr. Nayot and seeing a Naturopathic Doctor, Dr. Fitzgerald I believed that I will get pregnant and have the family I always dreamed of.
Little did I know after two times of cycle monitoring we got pregnant with our beautiful baby boy. Without the help of Dr. Nayot and everyone at TRIO Fertility we wouldn’t be parents to this wonderful boy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

For those who are on this journey do not give up even though it can be hard, but at the end it is worth everything you have been through. Please remember you are not alone if you need help reach out to people at TRIO they are on your side!

August 2019

My husband and I first started trying to conceive in 2016. After a year of no success, we made an appointment with a fertility clinic. Initially, we were diagnosed with unexplained infertility and began medicated cycles with IUI. As we continued to be unsuccessful, we were referred to TRIO, specifically to Dr. Cadesky. He diagnosed us with PCOS and Male Factor Infertility. We were then added to the funded IVF waitlist. We are so thankful to Dr. Cadesky. He helped us to reach our goal, as our son was born in August of 2019. The team at TRIO have been excellent through every step of this journey. I am so happy we were referred to them. Thank you!!


August 2019

John was born August 3. I was Dr. Nayot’s patient and he referred me to the high risk team doctors at Mt. Sinai. Just wanna say thank you for the special care and support in making our dream come true.
It is our pleasure to share our story to encourage and inspire others that there is hope in every difficulty in life, like infertility.


Jessie & Lee

August 2019

I was at my last hope. I had been discharged by two other clinics and Niagara Fertility and TRIO gave me faith and hope. The nurses and Dr. Browning and Dr. Hartman and I can’t forget Lynne we’re so supportive, kind and honest.



July 2019

I want to introduce our son Simon. I want to thank Dr. Sierra and you all for your help and support in getting us here. We couldn't have done it without you.



July 2019

I was 42 when my son was conceived and it was on the first transfer. A miracle really. My daughter is two and was conceived via IUI when I was 40. Both with the help of Dr Nayot. He is an amazing doctor and human being.

We wanted to introduce our miracle Jack. He was born May 2019. After 10 years of struggling with infertility, we were referred to Dr. Laskin. Even though we live in Thunder Bay, we felt at home on our trips to TRIO. The staff and doctors are so friendly and took the time to address all of our concerns. We are so grateful for everyone at TRIO, for making our family complete. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

"We are forever grateful to Dr. Chang and the entire TRIO team for making our dreams of having a family come true. Our journey was not easy, but through all the ups and downs the entire TRIO team demonstrated genuine compassion, support and encouragement. Because of Dr. Chang's expertise and determination to make our dreams come true, we welcomed our baby girl, Aubrey in November 2018. To anyone going through treatment, never give up hope as dreams/miracles do come true."


Dan & Christine

April 2019

Our IVF journey began before we even knew we were ready to start a family. Seeing as Dan has cystic fibrosis it was inevitable that if we wanted children we would have to do IVF. When we were ready to finally start our family we were referred to Dr. Cadesky. Without his knowledge and great team we wouldn’t be able to ever have three wonderful children. Thank you Dr. Cadesky for helping us have twin boys (2014) and a beautiful girl (2018).


Janine & Devin

April 2019

"Our gestational carrier gave birth in January to a healthy baby boy. We couldn’t have asked for a better delivery. We’re just over 2 months out and we’re adjusting quite well to having our little guy home.  We’ve also spoken to our gestational carrier and she’s recuperated fantastically. Dr. Nayot and Bridgette were so wonderful to us."


Ariana & Patrick

January 2019

"We had an amazing experience with Dr Nayot, Bridgette Davey, and TRIO. Dr Nayot set us up for success while all the while setting realistic expectations. He supported us through the entire process and went out of his way on many occasions to ensure we were comfortable and confident with the procedure. I have already referred friends who were struggling with fertility to him as I know they will be in good hands! We finally got our miracle baby thanks to the TRIO team!"

Lacey & Cory

January 2019

"We had an amazing experience working with Dr. Chang and his team. They were so informative and made us feel comfortable with what we would be going through with the IVF Process. After our first transfer, we have been blessed with a perfect baby girl and the family we never thought we would have. Thank you."

Kevin & Marlena

January 2019

"We would like to thank Dr. Cadesky and the entire TRIO team for all of their dedication to our journey. Throughout the entire process, the ups and downs, Dr. Cadesky never gave up on us and tried different approaches. After a 10 year battle with infertility, our little Luka was born on January 6, 2019. We can’t thank you all enough for what you do. For everyone going through treatments, never give up hope."

Larissa & Karl

December 2018

"We had been trying for what felt like a really long time and had gone to another clinic for a year with no luck. We were very lucky that the first round of treatment worked. Dr. Chang's approach throughout the whole process was specific and accurate, both before and even once I got pregnant. The clinic was just amazing on every level.”

Stephanie & Ferdinand

"We cannot thank Dr. Ken Cadesky and all the Trio staff for making our 6 year infertility journey end, with a beautiful baby boy born Dec 17 2018! We feel extremely grateful to be the parents of Elliot. He has brought so much joy to our now family of 3! We want other struggling couples know that it is possible for dreams to come true and that you are not alone. Elliot was our first successful ICSI FET baby! Thank you TRIO for all that you have done to help us through our journey. "

"Dear Doctor Chang,

I can’t believe it has been over a year now that we last saw you for our first embryo transfer during our funded IVF cycle in April of 2016.  We prayed and hoped at that time that our little miracle would come out of that thawed embryo, but didn’t know what would happen as is the unpredictable and tumultuous road of infertility we had come to know so well.  But you helped us down that road every step – from consultation in 2013 through 4 IUI’s, 2 miscarriages, waiting to get funded for IVF & then a successful egg retrieval and embryo transfer.  When we found out we were pregnant after that transfer, we were cautiously optimistic and I couldn’t really believe it was (finally) happening to me until I was 7 months pregnant.

Our little miracle was born to us on Monday, January 31st, 2017 at 8:15pm at night via unplanned (breech) C-Section at the Sault Area Hospital and in Sault Ste. Marie.  He was 20 inches long and 9.9oz!  We named our tiny miracle Eli Norman Peter Schaer – Eli after the priest in the story of Hannah from the Bible who prays for Hannah to conceive after many years of trying.  He had a difficult transition to life outside of the uterus and spent 4 days in the NICU.  We were both discharged the same day and Eli hasn’t stopped mesmerizing or challenging us since!

He turned 20 weeks this week… the photos I attached were taken 2 weeks ago!  I haven’t sent you a birth announcement until now as I didn’t know how to put into words our gratitude to you for walking down this road with us and changing our lives forever.  We truly wouldn’t have this family if it weren’t for your expertise, kind bedside manner, willingness to answer emails 24/7 and even call me when I was staying at a hotel in Toronto for our last IUI to tell me to de-stress and that I was freaking out about too many things!

I would recommend you to anyone struggling to have a child and I truly hope that you are blessed a thousand-fold for all of the lives you are changing and the love you are bringing into the world. We will never forget you and we can’t wait to tell Eli all about Dr. Chang in the big city of Toronto….

We are grateful for Dr. Cadesky and the wonderful team at TRIO and the Barrie Fertility Centre for helping us start our family. Thanks to Dr. Cadesky’s knowledge and expertise, we had a successful frozen embryo transfer and welcomed our beautiful daughter, Emma, into the world in November 2018. We are grateful for our wonderful family and friends who offered their love and support along the way. Every day, we consider ourselves incredibly lucky that IVF worked for us and we are now a family of three.
