Blake Proctor, 6 mths, Southampton. Helen and Marc Proctor spent over £90,000 to have IVF treatment. See SWNS story SWBABY; A couple have finally welcomed their miracle baby into the world - after seven years, three miscarriages and spending £90,000 on six heartbreaking rounds of IVF. Helen and Marc Proctor started trying for a baby in 2007, with the ex-Marine even taking a year off work in Iraq to concentrate on getting pregnant. But even after seven years without success and three miscarriages, the determined pair refused to give up. Finally Helen, 34, fell pregnant thanks to an anonymous egg donor in Spain last year and welcomed little Blake into their lives in May.
