See SWNS story SWFTbaby. Mother-of-two Ann Hope, 42, always dreamed of having the 'complete family', with three children, before the blood cancer struck in March 2016. Doctors told Ann she would need four rounds of gruelling chemotherapy, which would most likely leave her infertile. The debilitating treatment caused a severe bout of pneumonia - which left her fighting for her life in ICU - but Ann recovered and was eventually given the all-clear. Fertility tests the following year showed her eggs were damaged and doctors said her only option was IVF - until late 2017 - when Ann's period didn't show. And despite doctors warnings it turned out Ann had conceived naturally and 'miracle' baby daughter Eden was born in June 2018.
