Baby joy for woman who suffered 14 miscarriages, a stillbirth and the death of her two-week old son | Mail Online

A mother who suffered 14 miscarriages, a stillbirth and the death of her two-week old son has given birth to a bouncing baby girl.

Maria Pridmore, 32, endured the heartbreaking loss of 16 babies over a 13-year period including the stillbirth of daughter Shannon and son Kia, who died when he was just two weeks old.

But Maria and long-term partner John Foran, 35, have been celebrating since their daughter Mia Shannon was born on January 16, weighing 4lb 12oz.

Maria, from Moulton Seas End, Lincolnshire, yesterday described her daughter’s birth as ‘a dream come true’.

She said: ‘It really is out of this world. After everything we have gone through this is like a dream come true. I didn’t think it would ever happen.

‘After losing the two I lost and all the miscarriages I never thought I would be gifted with one. She is so precious to us.’

Maria suffered her first miscarriage when she was 19 and had endured 13 years of heartache before Mia’s birth.

She and John, a logistic supervisor at a garden nursery, gave up on their dream of having a family after son Shannon was stillborn and son Kia died aged two weeks in 2009.

Maria, a cancer nurse, added: ‘We didn’t think it would happen. We’d given up on the idea of having children, we had just decided not to try anymore so she was a bit of a surprise.

‘I was too scared to tell John I was pregnant again for a week because I wasn’t sure how he’d react.’
