Louisa Carr, from Hampshire, is Wessex Fertility’s 2,500th baby born with their help

FOR HER parents she is the miracle baby they feared they would never have.
But this little bundle of joy is also very special to the Hampshire fertility centre that played a part in her creation.
Little Louisa Carr, from Hampshire, is Wessex Fertility’s 2,500th baby to be born with their help, a major milestone for the Southampton-based clinic.
Her besotted parents Emma and James had been trying to conceive for five years after the birth of their first child, Keira, in 2006 and were heartbroken to discover they had secondary infertility, a condition which means that after conceiving a baby naturally the couple may face problems trying again.
Medical investigations didn’t shed any light on the problem leaving the couple feeling extremely frustrated. They decided to have just one attempt at IVF with Wessex Fertility.
Emma had her embryo transfer at the clinic in late November and couldn’t believe it when she took a pregnancy test and discovered it had been a success.
Louisa was born in August, healthy and perfect. When they found out she was the clinic’s 2500th baby, Emma said: “It felt really special, she is already a miracle for us but this just made it even more special.”
News of Louisa’s safe arrival comes as the clinic marks National Infertility Week next week.
Dr Chantal Simonis, medical director at Wessex Fertility, added: “Our high success rates are a result of excellent team- work at the clinic, with every staff member being vital to the outcome for our patients.
“In addition, we continually strive to bring new technology and expertise to the clinic.”
