Couple Makes 1st Baby After 11 Years of Waiting – The Story of Pastor and Mrs Arheghan

+ Key Roles Played By Nordica & Ibidun Ighodalo Foundation

It is another season of celebration for Nordica Fertility Center and the Ibidun Ighodalo Foundation as it welcomed another bundle of joy, a proceed from its Project 40at40 which was geared towards helping 40 couples have their own babies in accordance with the wish of the late founder, Mrs Ibidunni Ighodalo.

On January 26 2022, the family of Pastor Prince and Mrs Carol Arheghan welcomed a bouncing baby boy after a thorough IVF treatment at the Nordica Fertility Center in Lagos.

The whole process was successful and the couple which has been waiting for about 11 years was excited to carry their baby home in good health.

Speaking with journalists in Lagos, Mrs Caroline Arhegan revealed that her idea of IVF had completely changed after her encounter with Dr Abayomi Ajayi and the Nordica Fertility Center crew.

“I felt IVF was a sin and I felt like people were buying babies with money through the process. But after I had a counselling session with Dr Abayomi, he made me understand that it is God that gave them the idea of UVF to help families in need of babies and it is only him that can sustain the baby after implantation.

“My husband and I married as virgins and we had expected that we would have our babies straight away but after several attempts without result, Dr Abayomi made us understand that IVF was our best bet. I initially disagreed but after several counselling sessions from Dr Abayomi and Mummy Abayomi, we now have our baby through the help of the Ibidun Ighdalo Foundation who helped with the payment of all the bills.


Nordica Fertility Centre, Lagos was established by, Dr. Abayomi Ajayi, in association with Nordica International, Denmark, to provide the latest and most advanced assisted reproductive services for the treatment of male and female infertility and related issues.

Since opening our first clinic in Lagos in 2003, we have seen and treated all types of infertility while achieving outstanding success rates and maintaining a pristine safety record.

To us, success is attained when our elite physicians collaborate and apply their combined knowledge and individual skills as doctors to solving your infertility, helping you achieve your dreams of parenthood. That’s our bottom line.

Today, our clinics in Lagos, Abuja and Asaba have become the preferred choice of patients seeking fertility care.


The Ibidunni Ighodalo Foundation (IIF) is a non-profit organization created to raise awareness on issues pertaining to infertility and to provide grants for couples that require fertility treatments such as In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) and Intrauterine Insemination.

It partners with highly reputable fertility clinics in Nigeria and with other donors to provide couples with the financial and material support they require during the treatment. It also provides the necessary psychological and spiritual support they require to deal with the pressures they face along their journey to conception.

Recall that in July 2021, the Ibidunni Ighodalo Foundation (IIF), announced the second cycle of Project 40at40 to commemorate the first-year anniversary of the IVF grant which was birthed a year ago when its founder, Ibidunni Olajumoke Ituah-Ighodalo pronounced that her 40th birthday wish was to gift 40 couples with 40 IVF grants.

Ibidunni Ighodalo foundation was founded in 2016 to give couples-in-waiting the chance to become parents, through assisted reproduction, In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF), and other fertility treatments which resulted in many years of interventions for struggling parents.

This initiative took on a new life upon the founder’s demise; her husband, Pastor Ituah Ighodalo decided her wish must be granted. Currently, in its second year, this second cycle commencing on Ibidunni’s birthday anniversary – July 19th, 2021 is in fulfilment of this wish.
