"So I have thought about IVF because having researched it and spoken to some amazing people, it seems like the right option for my age," she shared.

"I stopped telling my friends, I didn't even tell my mum as I was sure she was thinking, 'You're 40 something, you've got a wonderful family, you've got everything you've ever wanted, why are you pushing it?'"
