Lauren McGregor, 33, fell pregnant with late husband’s baby in September 2021
A widow who is pregnant with her late husband’s baby revealed how she underwent a round of IVF with his frozen sperm.
Lauren McGregor, 33, from Merseyside, Liverpool, fell pregnant with her late husband’s baby in September 2021 and is due to give birth this month.
Her husband, Chris McGregor, 37, froze his sperm in 2017, after after being diagnosed with a brain tumour in December 2013.
Chris’ symptoms and treatment spanned from 2013 to 2020, including periods he was in remission, before he passed away in July 2020.
Lauren, who runs a party planning business in her hometown, said: ‘Looking back, I do kind of regret us not trying for a baby while he was still alive’.
‘With his health it just always took a back seat, it felt like there was always something stopping us. But people always say there’s never a good time to have a baby.
‘I started this journey to have a piece of Chris, I don’t want pity or anything, just raise awareness to say it can be done.’
Lauren said that while she can’t wait to become a mum, it’s difficult knowing her child will never be able to meet Chris.
