After years of trying, with no success, and heartbreaking miscarriages, Yvonne and her husband were blessed with a healthy daughter.
Read on to learn more about Yvonne’s TTC (trying to conceive) story and how she was able to get pregnant three times within three years using Mira’s products.
Heartache and loss
Yvonne and her husband had been trying to conceive for five years with no success. They were convinced it was never going to happen but in 2018 they decided to make their health a priority to increase their chances and it worked! Yvonne fell pregnant quickly, so she knew it could happen, but her hopes were dashed when she suffered a miscarriage at 9 weeks.
They knew they wanted to try again, but after years of trying and the heartache of loss, they needed to eliminate the guesswork. Yvonne began tracking her cycle and with Mira guiding their efforts, she was pregnant again after only 6 months. They were over the moon! The first trimester passed like a dream, and they were ecstatic. Unfortunately at 19 weeks misfortune struck again. Yvonne’s water broke spontaneously and she was forced to deliver her baby girl knowing she would never make it. Their world was turned upside down and they were heartbroken and confused.
After taking some time off to process everything, they were ready to try again. With Mira’s help, Yvonne and her husband were able to conceive a baby boy this time. Doctor’s suspected Yvonne had an incompetent cervix, but other than keeping a watchful eye on everything, there wasn’t much they could do. At 16 weeks her cervix was starting to funnel open and the all too familiar pain and heartbreak of pregnancy loss loomed large. Specialist intervention proved unsuccessful and once again, Yvonne had to deliver her son, knowing he would not make it either. Her son was born a week before Christmas and the loss was devastating.
Complications and diagnosis
To make matters worse, Yvonne’s father was diagnosed with a devastating cancer diagnosis during this time. It felt like heartache was all around as she tried to heal emotionally and physically from her loss, while also trying to be there for her father. Adding insult to injury, doctor’s discovered a sizable cyst that required one of Yvonne’s ovaries to be surgically removed. She was sure she’d never be able to conceive again, even though doctors told her otherwise. The losses were starting to add up and the couple needed time to process everything that had happened. They took a long break from trying, knowing Mira would be there to help them when they were ready again.
A happy ending
When they were finally ready, Mira was there to guide them and before long Yvonne was pregnant again. After what had happened with her last two pregnancies, the doctor’s had a plan this time. Yvonne was diagnosed with an incompetent cervix, or cervical insufficiency – weak cervical tissue that contributes to premature birth or the loss of an otherwise healthy pregnancy. It can be hard to diagnose, but Yvonne’s previous pregnancy experiences all but confirmed it. The fix? This time doctor’s put in what’s known as a cervical cerclage which is a procedure to close the cervix with strong sutures so it doesn’t open too soon and cause you to give birth too early.
Although the pregnancy was stressful and high risk, the fix worked and held the pregnancy. Unfortunately Yvonne lost her father to colon cancer during this time adding to the stress, but at the end of it all she got her miracle and was blessed with a happy healthy daughter.
How Mira helped

Mira’s scientific approach and concrete numbers were exactly what they needed and in the end it helped Yvonne finally get her miracle baby.
