3Reason behind the infertility

The tests were not able to find the reason behind infertility and the couple also didn’t get success even after trying many medical treatments. In the year 2011, the couple chose to go for In vitro fertilization (IVF) and they paid £4,000 for it as they were not eligible to get the funding from National Health Service (NHS) because of two reasons – the location of their house and Joan’s age.

4Joan got pregnant

Joan was 38 yrs old and getting pregnant at this age is little difficult so the doctors transfer two embryos in order to increase the probability of her getting pregnant. Joan told that she cried when she saw two lines on the pregnancy test kit.

Her happiness increased manifold after seven weeks when a test disclosed that there are two heartbeats which means that Joan was having twins. Joan and Ryan were not able to stop their tears when they become parents to two daughters in November 2011.
