Huge congratulations are in order for Rosanna Davison and Wes Quirke who are expecting their first child together. The couple revealed that they are set to welcome a baby girl in November.
The couple are expecting their daughter via gestational surrogate.
Rosanna revealed the joyous news in an honest and moving Instagram post where she opened up about her difficult journey to parenthood.
She wrote, “As our families & close friends know, this has been a long & very tough journey for us, sadly with multiple miscarriages along the way. We’ve dreamed of being parents for many years and I would have loved to carry my own baby, but for reasons unknown (most likely embryo rejection due to an overactive immune system) & although tests show excellent fertility, I’ve been unable to sustain any of my pregnancies, despite the best efforts of reproductive immunology experts & a lot of immune-suppressant medication, injections, intravenous infusions & surgery.”
Rosanna decided that gestational surrogacy was the best option for her after seeking advice from medical professionals, “Gestational surrogacy abroad became our only viable option for a biological child & we’re so thankful for the wonders of modern medicine & reproductive science."
The mum-to-be thanked all of the medical staff who are “making our family dream come true.” She also gushed about their surrogate, “Thanks to our amazing surrogate for keeping our little daughter healthy and safe… We already love her so much & can’t wait to finally hold her!”
Rosanna offered a message of support to those who are dealing with pregnancy loss and facing fertility struggles.
“If you’re going through this, I send you all of my love and support. As painful as it is, I’ve found that talking about it openly with trusted family & friends is deeply healing & greatly helps to reduce the stigma & sense of helplessness.
“Proper awareness, support & understanding is crucial to the challenging physical & emotional recovery process, especially when all you want to do is blame yourself. Most of all, stay strong, positive & don’t give up on your family dreams… miracles really do happen,” she concluded.
Rosanna’s pregnancy announcement will certainly help women in similar situations feel a lot better. We couldn’t be happier for her.
