A woman who endured four miscarriages and an ectopic pregnancy has finally given birth to a miracle baby boy after her infertility issues were cured.

Diana Bowden, 39, lost five babies between December 2017 and June 2021, leaving medics baffled.

To make matters worse, after an ectopic pregnancy in 2020, doctors at Worcestershire Royal Hospital were forced to remove Diana’s right fallopian tube to save her life.

After taking part in a trial for women with recurrent miscarriages, a biopsy revealed she had endometritis - an infection of the uterus stopping embryos implanting correctly into her womb.

She was prescribed a simple course of antibiotics and within 12 months went on to conceive their first child, Freddie, now three months.

Diana said: "We have had our little rainbow baby.

"All I've ever wanted to be is a mum.

"A lot of women would have stopped trying at a certain point.

"I still can't believe it, I still look over at him and think, ‘he's ours’.”

Diana met her partner Mike Grosvenor, 41, through work in May 2018 and both agreed they wanted to try for kids right away.

Just four months after stopping contraception, Diana found she was pregnant but the 12-week scan revealed she had suffered a miscarriage.

Diana went on to have three more similar missed miscarriages, in August 2019, February 2020 and August 2020.

After falling pregnant for a fifth time, Diana had an ectopic pregnancy and medics were forced to remove her right fallopian tube to save her life, at Worcestershire Royal Hospital.

She said: "That was quite a horrendous one.

"They didn't know if it was an ectopic pregnancy or not first, and said they would have to do keyhole surgery and find out.

"Because my right fallopian tube had ruptured they had to remove it.

"I'd been quite strong throughout all my losses, and I'd had faith and hope, but after my ectopic pregnancy that was the first time I had started to lose hope.

"I was losing part of my woman's anatomy and I was getting older too."

Due to a lack of numbers, Tommy's CERM trial has now stopped, but Diana is fundraising throughout March walking 8,000 steps a day.
