Mrs Cutts had to spend nearly three months in hospital here during the run-up to the C-section birth.
I’m willing to bet a triple nappy that it wasn’t: ‘International air travel and hotels, plus baby-making procedures, please.’ After two failed attempts in London, the couple flew to Cyprus, where IVF can be carried out on women up to the age of 60.
Sharon — an NHS nurse, for heaven’s sake — met factory worker Stuart on a dating website and the couple have been together for four years, despite the fact that she is still married to her last husband.
Childless Stuart wanted to start a family, but as Sharon had already begun the menopause, they had no choice but to join the growing band of reproductive tourists and travel abroad to achieve their baby dream.
The babies (including triplet Lily, left) were conceived after twice-married Sharon and her 40-year-old boyfriend Stuart Reynolds (right) spent £23,000 on private IVF treatments — £15,000 of the money provided by loans Actually, that’s not true. Instead of embarking on this route they could have counted their blessings, agreed that time was against them and found simple joy and happiness in each other instead.
Nature has already said ‘No’ — for a very good reason.
Her body has said ‘No’; her ovaries have said ‘No’; her mammary glands have said ‘No’; her entire hormonal system has shut down and put out a sign saying ‘Closed For Business’.The babies were conceived after twice-married Sharon and her 40-year-old boyfriend Stuart Reynolds spent £23,000 on private IVF treatments — £15,000 of the money provided by loans.Wouldn’t you just love to know what they wrote in the ‘Purpose For Loan’ box?Not that I blame Mrs Cutts for any of this, of course.However, her insouciant belief that once she got her 55- year-old bod pregnant, the dear old NHS would sort her out no matter what the expense is symptomatic of a far deeper problem.To be fair, health experts don’t know for sure if Botox harms babies in the womb, but why take the gamble?
