“When I look at that ultrasound my heart actually skips. For years I lived never knowing if I would ever have an ultrasound photo hanging on my fridge.

“I’m so in love I can hardly stand it.”

She hopes that her experience will inspire other women who are struggling with infertility to keep trying.

Although clearly overjoyed, Macy noted that the news was “bittersweet”. Reflecting on the babies she has lost, she said: “To every single one of my babies, you were worth it.”
