“I have been wanting to update you for weeks now, to say that our son was born on 17th November. He is absolutely beautiful, healthy and perfect, and we are are both over the moon. I still look at him every day in disbelief that I now actually have a son! Despite the huge struggle to get pregnant I feel so very, very lucky to have him and am thankful for him every day. He is such a joy and a privilege to have. I am also very thankful to you for helping me through probably the toughest challenge I have faced in my life so far. I so appreciated your confidence that I could most probably get pregnant when everyone around me was warning me that it was almost impossible. I think that by putting my infertility into your hands I was able to relax in a strange sort of way, and by giving my body a rest from IVF for what seemed like months on end, I am sure that the egg that was eventually used was much stronger. Somehow you worked a bit of magic and I will be grateful forever” (2012)
