At the tender age of 20, Allison Noyce was dealt a devastating blow by doctors when she was told that she would never become a mother having gone through early menopause just out of her teens.
15 years later, fitness instructor Allison gave birth to a baby girl named Sophie who she has described as a ‘perfect’ and ‘beautiful’.
Concerned after feeling a lump in her stomach and suffering pain, Allison attended a doctor who informed her that she was eight months pregnant and a mere twelve days later an astonished Allison and husband Richard welcomed into their lives the baby they never thought they’d meet.
Opening up about the wonderful event, a joyful Allison said: “We we overcome with emotion when the woman doing an ultrasound said I was eight months pregnant. Relief that it wasn’t cancer and sheer joy that we were having a baby.”
Having resigned themselves to the fact that they would never start a family, Richard and Allison fulfilled other interests and pursued hobbies in an attempt to soften the sadness Allison felt about never becoming a mum or “making Richard a dad.”
But little Sophie’s whirlwind arrival has changed everything for the couple and Allison, speaking about her now 16-month-old child said: “Doctors have no idea why so many years after going through the menopause I suddenly conceived. We are just enjoying our precious daughter- she is the miracle baby we never thought we’d have. We look at her and feel incredibly lucky.”
