The Biggest Loser star Fiona Falkiner and her fiancée Hayley Willis have spoken about their ‘tough journey’ through IVF.

‘There’s people who haven’t gotten to this point and just had to accept that “that’s life”. We are so blessed to have him with us,’ she added. 

The pair, who documented their experience on the What the IVF? podcast, admitted there wasn’t a lot of supportive media available for women trying for a baby.

‘It can feel like a really lonely journey and we created the podcast to make women feel less alone,’ Fiona said.

‘We’ll get it all out of the way,’ she said. ‘We want to get two or three if we can.’
