There are many couples who want to struggle with ɪɴꜰᴇʀᴛɪʟɪᴛʏ and try desperately for a child. In particular, Pamela, who suffered nine ᴍɪsᴄᴀʀʀɪᴀɢᴇs during 18 years of ꜰᴇʀᴛɪʟɪᴛʏ ᴛʀᴇᴀᴛᴍᴇɴᴛ, has fallen pregnant on the first try – after going abroad. Pamela Mackenzie, 41, from Edinburgh, gave birth to her miracle son Patrick, aged 3, in 2018 – after deciding to go to Prague for I.V.F ᴛʀᴇᴀᴛᴍᴇɴᴛ.
Ian and Pamela went through 40 waves before holding their long-awaited baby in their arms. Pamela, who was diagnosed with P.C.O.S at the age of 12, said her pregnancies never made it past the first five weeks. “We have been trying to have a child for 18 years. Each of my pregnancies ended in ᴍɪsᴄᴀʀʀɪᴀɢᴇ. During this time I ᴍɪsᴄᴀʀʀɪᴇᴅ 9 times and had an ᴇᴄᴛᴏᴘɪᴄ pregnancy. I was living a nightmare. I thought I would never be a mother.’
In 2018, Pamela decided to go to Prague for I.V.F ᴛʀᴇᴀᴛᴍᴇɴᴛ. Although in the past her ᴇᴄᴛᴏᴘɪᴄs had failed, in Prague she got lucky! Pamela said she couldn’t believe it when she got pregnant on the first try of I.V.F in Prague – and nearly four years later, she is hoping to help more women look abroad.
Nine months later, the happy parents welcomed into the world their baby boy, Patrick, who is now three years old and a smiling little boy.
