Woman Who Suffered 18 Miscarriages & Spent £80k On IVF Becomes Mum Aged 48
A woman suffered 18 miscarriages over two decades before finally giving birth - at the age of 48.
Louise Warneford suffers from a condition which causes ‘killer cells’ in her body to destroy unborn embryos. Despite spending £80,000 on IVF treatments over nearly 20 years, she agonisingly lost 18 babies.
Louise and husband Mark, 55, made the devastating decision to give up trying for a baby in 2010.
But she knew she needed to give herself one last chance of achieving her dream of becoming a mum.
The couple, from Swindon, Wilts, underwent embryo donation in the Czech Republic in 2015.
Incredibly Louise fell pregnant and gave birth to son William in June last year - 18 years after first trying for a baby.
She said: “Mark and I had been trying for a baby since I was 32.
“We'd suffered 18 miscarriages and spent £80k but looking at William now, it was all worth it.
“I’m not the spring chicken that I used to be and it does take me a while to chase him around the floor but it's worth it.”
“We're a perfect family now and I finally feel complete.”
