Gabbi is a mum to three gorgeous boys. She had her first son in her early twenties and it wasn’t until she remarried in her mid-thirties and began trying to conceive that she had difficulties.
After two years of IVF (8 fresh and 2 frozen cycles, 19 embryos transferred), she finally gave birth to another son. With a surprise pregnancy 8 months later, Gabbi experienced her first miscarriage at 9 weeks which devastated both she and her husband. The subsequent transfer of one her remaining frozen embryos saw her become pregnant again a few months later, and she went on to give birth to another son. Over the following two years, Gabbi had a further 5 miscarriages before she and her husband made the decision to stop trying.
Given her experiences in both IVF and miscarriage, Gabbi has always felt she wanted to be able to help other women who were going through these things too. Creating not-for-profit organisation The Pink Elephants Support Network with co-founders Sam and Rachel, has given Gabbi the platform she needs to reach and support as many women as she can.
