 54-year-old woman became a mother for the first time after 11 unsuccessful attempts to get pregnant

Magda Upton became pregnant for the first time only after fertility treatment.

Magda Upton from Sydney first thought about becoming a mother when she was 39years old. She underwent examinations and began to be treated for infertility. Magda did not have a permanent partner. Magda decided to have a baby through artificial insemination.

She went to many fertility clinics and paid a lot of money, but did not get the desired results. At one clinic, doctors suggested seeing a therapist to help her accept the fact that she might not be able to have children.

For 10years since the start of treatment, Magda had 2.5 IVF cycles, the third of which was interrupted due to ovarian hypestimulation syndrome. The woman had already been pregnant twice, but both times she lost a child for a period of 8 weeks. She then underwent 13 more fertility treatments to conceive a child, again without success. Magda was in despair and was ready to give up. She considered adoption, but she would have to wait at least seven years, since single mothers are always at the bottom of the list of candidates.

In 2017, Magda went to Cape Town to get 2 donor embryos. The woman left almost $11,000 at the clinic and it was her last chance to become a mother. When Magda returned to Sydney, she was very nervous, not knowing how the operation would go. However, she was relieved when her first ultrasound showed she was pregnant with healthy twins.

In2018, at the age of 54, Magda gave birth to 2 daughters. She is a freelance designer, works for herself and devotes a lot of time to her children. In her opinion, motherhood at a later age has its advantages. She devotes all her free time to joint activities with her daughters, games, walks and trips to the park.
