After enduring multiple miscarriages and investing over $100,000 in fertility treatments, acupuncture, and homeopathic remedies, Leonie Fitzgerald, 44, and her husband Peter, 51, finally became proud parents to triplet daughters.
Despite setbacks and a diagnosis of insufficient progesterone, Leonie refused to lose hope. Their journey began in 2013, and after several failed attempts, they turned to IVF. Leonie even left her stressful job to focus on her own business. Determined not to give up, they underwent one last round of IVF, resulting in the long-awaited arrival of their flawless daughters.
The couple faced heartbreak when Leonie suffered four devastating miscarriages, both naturally and through IVF. However, each setback only strengthened their determination. Leonie’s decision to seek guidance from a clairvoyant, who predicted twins and encouraged them to try again, proved to be a turning point. On January 21, 2020, following their third IVF cycle, Leonie became pregnant with triplets.
The 𝙪𝙣𝙚𝙭𝙥𝙚𝙘𝙩𝙚𝙙 news filled them with joy, despite initially having only two embryos. Throughout the pregnancy, Leonie faced various challenges, including morning nausea, thyroid issues, and a seizure that led to an induced coma.
The triplets, Charlotte, Liliana, and Isabella, were born prematurely and spent 34 days in the NICU before going home. As first-time parents, Leonie and Peter found themselves navigating uncharted territory.
They expanded their home and purchased a larger vehicle to accommodate their growing family. With the support of a caregiver and their loved ones, they managed the demands of raising three newborns.
While their household is undoubtedly chaotic, Leonie and Peter have learned to be highly organized and make the most of their time. The couple acknowledges the emotional toll of their six-year journey, but they cherish their bustling lives with the triplets.
They credit their positive outlook and intuition as key factors in overcoming obstacles. Sage counsel from experienced nannies and the support of family and friends have also been invaluable.
Leonie’s unwavering faith and refusal to give up on her dream of becoming a mother have paid off. The journey was filled with ups and downs, but the arrival of their three beautiful daughters has brought immeasurable joy to their lives. Their story serves as a testament to the power of perseverance and the strength of the human spirit.
