We were told that it would be highly unlikely that we would conceive naturally so when we fell pregnant the first time we were so excited. But unfortunately I miscarried early on and we were absolutely devastated. Then I fell pregnant again we were both really scared that I would miscarry again so when I did we were totally gutted. I had to go for a scan which was a terrible experience, when the midwife came to tell us that we had miscarried again she was so cold as if was' just another miscarriage.'

Well it wasn't just another miscarriage it was our baby our precious baby.

We have gone on to have 2 beautiful healthy babies a girl and a boy but we'll never forget the 2 babies we lost. Each Christmas we hang 2 baubles on a tree in our garden and think about the 2 precious babies we never got to meet x
