Nicci had 3 IVF attempts and 2 miscarriages before finding joy with Gabriella - now celebrating her 4th birthday - and little Isabella.
Nicci explains how she coped with the fear of a further miscarriage, she would tell herself: ‘I’m pregnant but it doesn’t mean I’m having a baby.’ The two things were not connected in my mind.

Now she writes: "Thank you Bourn Hall! Gabriella turned 4 this month and we will be forever grateful. 😊
