IVF and fertility problems? Just relax

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Saturday, February 21, 2009 | 0 comments

Sophia Mackintosh is all too aware that she is a walking stereotype. After two miscarriages and a failed IVF attempt, she decided to give up trying for a baby and buy a dog instead. With Lulu happily installed in their newly renovated house in Islington, North London, Mackintosh and her husband, James, launched themselves wholeheartedly into the adoption process. Then, five years after that first traumatic miscarriage, she discovered that she was pregnant.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
