Mother, 37, finally welcomes a baby girl after suffering 14 miscarriages in 11 years of trying

  • A mother-of-two who suffered multiple miscarriages had one shot at trying IVF
  • A previous ectopic pregnancy has resulted in the loss of one fallopian tube 
  • No tests revealed a cause for all the losses but she finally gave birth this month 

A mum has given birth to a healthy baby girl after suffering the heartache of 14 miscarriages.

After 11 years of trying and multiple setbacks, Gina Mcguinness, 37, and partner Simon Crowe, 39, have welcomed beautiful baby daughter, Lola Mae Crowe, into the world.

Baby Lola was born at Middlesbrough’s James Cook Hospital on Sunday, December 12 weighing 8lbs 9oz.

Gina, from Owton Manor, Hartlepool, gave birth after having just one chance of success through IVF which was delayed twice due to the pandemic, and also coming down with Covid during her pregnancy.

She said: ‘I knew one day we would have a little rainbow baby. I never gave up.’

Gina and Simon started trying for a baby back in 2010.

That year she suffered an ectopic pregnancy, when a fertilised egg implanted itself outside of the womb, and resulted in the loss of one of her fallopian tubes.

Over the next six years she went through a further 12 miscarriages and a second ectopic pregnancy in 2016 and loss of her second fallopian tube.

Gina, who is also mother to daughter Kaitlin Theasby, 20, from a previous relationship, said: ‘It was absolutely awful.

‘Every time I had a positive pregnancy test I just knew it would go on to turn negative.’

She said it was made worse as she underwent numerous tests, including going private, but none found a reason for the miscarriages.

Due to not being able to give birth naturally, the couple saved up for IVF treatment which was delayed twice because of the pandemic.

The couple decided on IVF treatment after not being able to conceive naturally, and then Gina contracted Covid 16 weeks into the pregnancy but luckily Lola was delivered safely

When it did go ahead, only one of Gina’s two eggs fertilised, meaning she had just one chance of success.

She added: ‘I’m on IVF pages online and every time I tell my story everyone says: “Oh my God, this gives me hope”.

‘I’ve heard of people maybe losing three, four or five, but 14 is a massive amount.’

While 16 weeks pregnant with Lola, Gina caught Covid and was in hospital.

‘It was awful,’ she said. ‘I couldn’t even look after myself. But I went for my scan and she was fine.’

She and Simon are now basking in the love at home with Lola blissfully unaware of all that has happened.

Gina added: ‘She’s perfect; absolutely beautiful.’
