Bristol couple’s 14-year dream for a baby ends in tragedy as child is stillborn | Bristol News

Such a tragic story. My heart goes out to Deborah and Stephen Harris.

 

For 14 long years, Deborah Harris and her husband Stephen have been trying to start a family.

In that time, Mrs Harris has suffered nine miscarriages and two ectopic pregnancies.

But up until a few weeks ago, it seemed as though she and her husband would finally have the child for which they had longed.

Mrs Harris, 38, had undergone IVF treatment and successfully became pregnant. All seemed well. Her baby was due on October 23.

Mrs Harris said: “He was such an active baby. I went for a scan the week before and was told the head was in place for labour.”

She went into labour 12 days early and went to hospital still believing everything was fine.

But she said: “When I got to the hospital they said they were really sorry but there was no heartbeat.”

Later that day she gave birth to a baby boy, who the couple named Charlie. He was stillborn.
