Couple Wins Baby in Contest With Online Fertility Magazine

by | May 30, 2019

There are many things that one could expect to win from a contest brought to you by a magazine. From product samples to gift cards to even luxurious vacations, there is usually a rotation of commonly acceptable items that one could expect to win in a contest. However, thanks to a contest that was run by an online fertility magazine, a couple won a baby.

You read that right, a baby.

Della McGill, 36, and Ryan Cunningham, 39, have been actively trying to have a baby for quite a while, but unfortunately, it was without any luck. After two ectopic pregnancies occurring in 2016 and 2017, the first which had resulted in one of Della’s fallopian tubes needing to be removed, the couple tried with NHS in Scotland to get pregnant. Unfortunately, 15,000 pounds later, it wasn’t successful either.

Luckily, Della ran in a competition to win a free round of IVF treatment that was being hosted by the online fertility magazine, IVF Babble. After she, herself, entered, she also had her husband enter as the rules allowed one entry per person rather than one per couple, which doubled their chances of winning.

In an interview with BBC Radio Scotland’s Mornings with Stephen Jardine, Della shared everything that happened next.

Out of 6,000 entries of yearning parents-to-be entering for a chance to win a round of IVF to be completed in one of 15 clinics around the world that are valued at 6-7,000 pounds, the couple got the news that Ryan had won the contest for the both of them.

Following the IVF process, Della got some amazing news. She shares, “I was feeling nauseous and thought I had some pregnancy symptoms. I didn’t tell anyone and I sneakily did a test- which they don’t advise. It was positive. I did another and the lines were even darker.”

Since finding out that they were pregnant, the happy couple has been eagerly waiting for the arrival of their baby, who is due to arrive on July 26 of this year. Although there is still a possible risk of complications, everything has been looking good thus far.

Congratulations to the happy couple!
