After a week in hospital, Baby Jenson was safely delivered and is now healthy at home.

But she and partner John Tuck, 30, were stunned to be told she was pregnant after spending £12,000 on a pioneering treatment.

She was pregnant with many complications, and needed to have a caesarean four weeks before due date.

After a week in the hospital, baby Jenson was delivered safe and is now at home.

Leanda, 30, said: “Jenson is our miracle and is everything and more we hoped he’d be.

“We lost five babies so finally welcoming Jenson into the world was the most wonderful thing after so much pain and grief.

“It’s been a long and difficult road but to be where we are now is so magical and special.”

Rainbow baby refers to a child who was born to a stillbirth, miscarriage or neonatal death family.

After five miscarriages between 2018 and 2021, Leanda, of Derby, paid £12,000 for specialist autoimmune treatment.

Leanda was diagnosed with polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, which is characterized by a thin womb line as well as a mal-shaped and irregularly shaped uterus.

But she said: “I wasn’t prepared to give up on being a mum and I always had faith. He’s our miracle and hero.”
