The Morris family is celebrating their first Christmas as a family after welcoming a baby boy on December 17 this year. Clarrisa, 33, had suffered 13 miscarriages and a stillbirth before giving birth to her son which was nothing short of a miracle. She tells Metro UK, "We tried for years and years naturally to have a baby. We did originally conceive quite a few times, but we just had multiple miscarriages and never got past six weeks." Clarissa and her husband, Dave, are residents of Wickham, Australia, have named their son Oliver and are extremely happy as they got the Christmas gift they have always wanted in the form of their own child. Their son was born after only one round of ICSI IVF, at St John of God Murdoch Hospital and weighed 6lb 7oz, per Daily Mail.

Morris told about the procedure, "We eventually had tests done and worked out that one of my tubes was blocked and the fluids were coming back into my uterus, and it was basically like poison." She added, "I had my tube removed, and then we found out that we also had male factor fertility issues." She specified that her husband's fertility might have been affected by the profession he pursues as it involved prolonged exposure to excess heat. Morris was then advised to go forwards with ICSI IVF which involved directly injecting the sperm into her embryo. However, this procedure too wasn't free of complications for the couple.
