It then dawned on them that they had fertility issues when their several attempts that span out over months bore no fruits.

They visited fertility experts and were advised to start trying IVF but that was not an easy journey.

Despite spending millions on the treatments, all they ended up delivering were bad news and disappointments.

"We never thought this would happen to us; sometimes I wish I had started trying for a baby sooner, but I am grateful that I finally have my little miracle," the happy mum said.

Their hopes started fading away when Fiona started experiencing symptoms of menopause once she clocked 45.

The 48-year-old lady still craved the gift of motherhood and consulted a doctor from Spain who started her on a protocol to restart her periods.

She was put on another round of IVF that led to the conception and birth of her golden child named Ella-Jane.

"After two years of trying naturally, we went to the doctors who discovered I had a low ovarian reserve and needed IVF - we got the first round free and then paid for another on the NHS but they were both unsuccessful," Fiona added.
