Children are the joys of any married woman but when none is forthcoming, then there is a problem. This woman spent money on IVF yet, she kept on having miscarriages till a specialist revealed that she had killer cells.
According to DailyMail, Louise Warneford and her 55-year old husband, Mark from Swindon, endured countless rounds of IVF – costing around £80,000 – over a span of 16 years before a specialist finally found the reason behind her miscarriages.
After coming close to giving up in 2010, the couple agreed to have one final try after a doctor told them a donor embryo might be successful, and Louise gave birth to a healthy baby boy, William, at 37 weeks. Louise said:
He was born at 37 weeks through a planned C-section because I was told that there was a problem with the placenta. Although I couldn’t enjoy my pregnancy, because I was constantly scared that I was going to lose him, it was completely worth it for my dream baby.
The breakthrough came in 2015 – when doctors identified that she had ‘killer cells’ which meant her own body was destroying her embryos.
However, due to Mark’s vasectomy from a previous relationship, so they resorted to sperm insemination from a donor to make Louise’s dream of having a baby a reality.
I fell pregnant a number of times with the insemination, but every single time I ended up losing the baby around the 14-week scan mark as they couldn’t find the heartbeat.
Louise is now sharing her story to provide help for anyone facing a similar situation and to raise awareness about miscarriages. Louise said:
It was the toughest time in my life, but it’s so worth it for our dream baby.
We want people to know that it is doable and despite my multiple miscarriages and rounds of IVF, our dream baby was achievable.
