The birth of any baby is worth celebrating, but Australian couple Krystal and Luke Findlay are both delighted and amazed with their new twins.
These twins have been hailed as ‘one-in-a-million’ and ‘miraculous’ – why? Because one was conceived naturally, while the other was conceived by IVF.
The Findlays spent two years trying to conceive via IVF, producing three embryos in the process. With the first two attempts ending in heartbreak, the couple pinned all of their hopes on their last remaining embryo.
They were, naturally, delighted to discover shortly after implantation that they were pregnant, and initially thought the embryo had split when they found out they were expecting twins.
However, further examination showed that while their daughter had been conceived by IVF, their son had been conceived in the natural way.
The pair went on to welcome Ava-Rose and Ethan into the world, and shared their heartwarming story with local newspaper The Advertiser this week.
In an interview, proud father Luke said: “Just to be able to conceive naturally after all that we have been through is amazing, but to have it occur in that small window when an embryo was successfully implanted is unbelievable.”
Congratulations to the Findlay family on their wonderful news.
