‘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.
