After 18 Miscarriages And £80,000 On IVF Treatment, Woman Delivers Her First Child

   

A 48-year old woman, Louise Warneford had her first child after 18 miscarriages and spent £80,000 on IVF treatment.

Louise had been trying for a child since 2001 and endured 18 rounds of IVF treatments before she knew the reason for her miscarriages.

At 47, a specialist told her that she had ‘killer cells’ which caused her pregnancies to terminate but advised her to try one more time.

Through a donated embryo, Louise got pregnant and at 37 weeks, she had her baby through C-section.

She told Dailymail

Mark and I had been trying for a baby since I was 32. We’d suffered 18 miscarriages and spent £80,000 but looking at William now, it was all worth it. We went to a fertility specialist to find out about the quickest way of conceiving, and they suggested a sperm insemination.

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.

Each time I got my hopes up and thought that “this was it” and I was going to have the perfect family I’d always wanted – I couldn’t stop crying every time I miscarried.

We decided to try IVF but despite falling pregnant a number of times, we always lost the baby. It was a complete mystery why my body kept rejecting my baby at just a few weeks old but it was heart-breaking every single time.

There is no grief that can compare to losing a much loved and wanted baby – all your hopes and dreams are shattered. We’d even tried using an egg donor but that failed as well.

I met a specialist in maternal medicine called Doctor Shehata and he told me that I had killer cells in my body, which was why I couldn’t hold a child. I told him I’d had 18 miscarriages and that I couldn’t go through that again but he gave me the courage to have one more try.
