In 2007, Hannah Carpenter from Ipswich, Suffolk, was diagnosed with infertility resulting from polycystic ovary syndrome.
Since then, the British woman and her husband, Michael, have tried many different procedures, but even IVF didn’t help them, for which they had high hopes.

The couple wanted to become parents more than anything, but it seemed that it wasn’t meant to be.
When I was first diagnosed with PCOS I was devastated. Going through the IVF treatment was very difficult. It did work on our second try but I sadly lost the baby.

However, three years ago, the woman managed to fall pregnant, carry to term, and give birth to baby Nancy. According to Carpenter, she and her husband managed to conceive after Hannah started going to the gym.
When Hannah had her firstborn, the doctors claimed that she wouldn’t be able to get pregnant again. But the woman proved them wrong again by giving birth to another baby, Dorothy, 2 years later. Both girls are completely healthy.
