The Miracle Pregnancy Of Couple Who ᴛʀᴀɢɪᴄᴀʟʟʏ sᴜffᴇʀᴇᴅ Six ᴍɪsᴄᴀʀʀɪᴀɢᴇs 

Jo and Adam Wiggins were ᴅᴇsᴘᴇʀᴀᴛᴇ to become parents and did everything they could to save up money for the ᴛʀᴇᴀᴛᴍᴇɴᴛ.  Who sᴜFFᴇʀᴇᴅ six ᴍɪsᴄᴀʀʀɪᴀɢᴇs finally have their miracle baby after moving out of their £250,000 home to save up enough money for I.V.F ᴛʀᴇᴀᴛᴍᴇɴᴛ. Jo and Adam Wiggins, both 33, from Braintree, Essex, ʟᴏsᴛ six babies in four years before finally conceiving their miracle baby, Max.

 Jo and Adam met in 2010 through a mutual friend and soon fell pregnant in 2011; although it was unplanned they both wanted a family and were thrilled with the news.

Jo added: “We were thrilled by the news and naively told everyone who would listen that we were having a baby, but at around six weeks I started to ʙʟᴇᴇᴅ ᴀɴᴅ ᴀFᴛᴇʀ ᴄᴏʟʟᴀᴘsɪɴɢ was taken into hospital. Two weeks later it was confirmed that I had sᴜFFᴇʀᴇᴅ a ᴍɪsᴄᴀʀʀɪᴀɢᴇ. I had a high level of Natural Killer (NK) cells that ᴀᴛᴛᴀᴄᴋᴇᴅ the ᴇᴍʙʀʏᴏs as my body saw them as a ᴛʜʀᴇᴀᴛ.

“He came up with a ᴛʀᴇᴀᴛᴍᴇɴᴛ plan and I was placed on steroids, an ɪɴᴛʀᴀʟɪᴘɪᴅ ɪɴFᴜsɪᴏɴ ᴀɴᴅ ᴀ Mᴀʟᴀʀɪᴀ ᴛᴀʙʟᴇᴛ ᴛᴏ ʀᴇᴅᴜᴄᴇ ᴛʜᴇ ᴋɪʟʟᴇʀ ᴄᴇʟʟs. I fell pregnant for the sixth time in early 2014 and as we reached the six week mark we saw a heartbeat, something we hadn’t seen before, but sadly a day before our one year wedding anniversary I ᴍɪsᴄᴀʀʀɪᴇᴅ again.”

The couple were so ᴅᴇsᴘᴇʀᴀᴛᴇ to fund further I.V.F ᴛʀᴇᴀᴛᴍᴇɴᴛ they rented out their home and moved back in with their parents to save up £10,000 for private I.V.F.

Jo, an administrator for the NHS, said: “We gave up everything to have our miracle baby. Going through the ᴛʀᴀᴜᴍᴀ of one miscarriage was hard enough but after suffering six we were completely ʜᴇᴀʀᴛʙʀᴏᴋᴇɴ but I was ᴅᴇᴛᴇʀᴍɪɴᴇᴅ to be a mother.

“After visiting a specialist I found out that I carried a high quantity of killer cells that were attacking my ᴇᴍʙʀʏᴏs causing the ᴍɪsᴄᴀʀʀɪᴀɢᴇs, so I was placed on a mixture of drugs and we tried again. But we were then faced with another setback after I ᴍɪsᴄᴀʀʀɪᴇᴅ that time as tests also revealed Adam’s sperm motility was low which meant we’d need to pay for I.V.F . We had already spent all of our savings on the miscarriage ᴛʀᴇᴀᴛᴍᴇɴᴛs so we were left with no other option but to rent out our home in order to save the money for I.V.F which cost £10,000. Thankfully it worked and once we saw our baby at our 12 week scan we were overcome with emotion.” she said

Previously, the couple had never experienced any fertility issues, but after 12 months of trying to get pregnant a seventh time their attempts were unsuccessful.  Tests revealed that Adam’s sᴘᴇʀᴍ ʜᴀᴅ ʟᴏᴡ ᴍᴏʀᴛᴀʟɪᴛʏ and they would now need I.V.F, but sadly didn’t qualify on the NHS, so they’d need £10,000 to fund the ᴛʀᴇᴀᴛᴍᴇɴᴛ privately.

Jo said: “We had already spent in excess of £15,000 on ᴛʀᴇᴀᴛᴍᴇɴᴛs at the ᴍɪsᴄᴀʀʀɪᴀɢᴇ ᴄʟɪɴɪᴄ ᴀɴᴅ ʜᴀᴅ ʀᴜɴ ᴏᴜᴛ ᴏF sᴀᴠɪɴɢs, so we decided to rent out our family home and move back in with my parents for a year to save money. My sister offered to be a sᴜʀʀᴏɢᴀᴛᴇ, she already has two children so wanted to help but I’m stubborn and wasn’t ready to give up, I was ᴅᴇᴛᴇʀᴍɪɴᴇᴅ to carry my own baby. Thankfully the I.V.F worked and I became pregnant a seventh time, but we wasn’t out of the ᴅᴀɴɢᴇʀ ᴢᴏɴᴇ ʏᴇᴛ ᴀs I ᴄᴏᴜʟᴅ sᴛɪʟʟ ᴍɪsᴄᴀʀʀʏ. Week by week our baby was getting stronger and at our 12 week scan we finally saw him, we both burst into tears and this was the first time we allowed ourselves to get excited.

“At 39 weeks my waters broke and after a 36 hour labour Max was born, there were some complications at birth but luckily he was healthy and after four days we were able to take him home.

“I have since started my blog,, as I want to reassure others that even if one door closes there is always another one that will open, our journey has been almost impossible to get through at times, but it has all been worth it for Max.”
