‘We weren’t going to fall pregnant naturally we were told… we had a couple of miscarriages in it, I look back at that time and I feel detached from it,’ Deborah explained. 

‘It was like a cloud of sadness was hanging over me at the time because it is that emotional rollercoaster, that cliché very much rings true with IVF.’

Deborah said she would put on a happy face at work at the time, but would go home and ‘crumble.’

I look back at myself then and I don’t relate to who that person was because I was just very sad,’ Deborah said. 

She added the once her first child was born, son Darcy, ‘it was like the cloud lifted.’

Weekend Today was the first to announce the birth of Audrey at the time, taking to both Instagram and Twitter to share the wonderful news. 

A statement from Deb read that she was ‘exhausted but over the moon.’

She previously told Woman’s Day about the shock of falling pregnant naturally, saying: ‘Audrey came about naturally, even though fertility doctors and experts said it would never happen.’
