Gina McGuinness, 37, and her boyfriend Simon Crowe, 39, welcomed the birth of their lovely daughter, Lola Mae Crowe, after eleven years of trying and multiple difficulties.
Lola, weighing eight pounds and nine ounces, was born on December 12, 2021, at James Cook Hospital in Middlesbrough.
McGuinness, of Owton Manor, Hartlepool, gave birth to her little girl after only having one shot at IVF success because to the pandemic and the mom acquiring COVID-19.
Lola’s parents had attempted to have a baby for 11 years in a row, but all attempts had failed. McGuinness, on the other hand, never lost hope. During an interview, the mother stated that she had always known she would have a rainbow kid one day.
McGuinness and Simon started trying to have a kid in 2010. The former suffered an ectopic pregnancy that year, in which a fertilized egg implanted outside her uterus. As a result, the mom had one of her fallopian tubes removed.
More sorrow befell the pair during the following six years. In 2016, McGuinness had 12 additional losses and a second ectopic pregnancy. With the lady losing her second fallopian tube, history repeated itself.
McGuinness described the encounter as “awful.” She was promised that if she obtained a positive pregnancy test, it would become negative. McGuinness conducted several tests, but none of them were able to pinpoint the cause of her losses.
As a result, the pair chose to choose a new path. They saved money for IVF and ultimately had it done. McGuinness fell pregnant after the therapy was effective, but she acquired COVID-19 16 weeks into the pregnancy.
Lola, on the other hand, was born safely and without incident. McGuinness is thrilled to be a mom of two kids, newborn Lola and her older sister, Kaitlyn, after 14 miscarriages.
Laura Worsley, 35, and her hubby Dave experienced a similar miracle following 13 losses in 10 years. On September 12, 2018, they delivered their lovely baby Ivy.
Worsley delivered baby Ivy after an emergency C-section 30 weeks during her pregnancy. She weighed barely one pound and seven ounces when she was born.
Ivy spent 11 weeks in a newborn incubator at University Hospital’s intensive care unit before she was well enough to go home. While it was painful to see Ivy battle for her life, Worsley was overjoyed to be Ivy’s mom.
The mother had been suffering from two illnesses for a long time: Antiphospholipid Syndrome and Chronic Histiocytic Intervillositis. Worsley had recurrent miscarriages as a result of these issues.
When she gave birth for the fourteenth time, she was given medicine to prevent blood clots, and at 30 weeks, she gave birth to her daughter.
Worsley couldn’t believe she had Ivy. But, most significantly, she was thankful to the hospital’s research and maternity experts for assisting her in having the kid she had always desired.
She thought that by sharing her experience, she may offer others the fortitude and hope they needed to keep going even when things appeared hopeless.
