BEAMING three-month-old Scarlett Khan has brought more joy to her parents than she could ever imagine.

And for her mum Jodene Khan, tomorrow will finally be a day worth celebrating.

For the first time, and after a seven year wait, the 33-year-old who lives in Littlemore, will be enjoying the first Mother's Day as a mum.

Mrs Khan said she and her husband Arnold, 37, were left devastated after their first round of IVF treatment did not work.

The couple had been referred to Oxford Fertility Clinic after they struggled to conceive naturally.

She said: "We have been trying for years and years.

"We always wanted children but after we were married we took it more seriously.

"It was devastating, I just convinced myself it was going to work, nothing could have prepared me for it not working.

"I wanted to experience pregnancy."

Fortunately the couple had several embryos frozen and were able to pay for further IVF treatment, costing around £3,000.

Mrs Khan added: "I remember doing a pregnancy test and I remember doing it at like 4am. I was crying and laughing.

"It still does not feel real some times, it really is amazing.

"We were very lucky to be in a financial situation where we could pay to have this further treatment.

"And this is why it is so important that we end the postcode lottery because everyone deserves that chance to become a parent."

The couple plan to celebrate Mother's Day 'in a big way' and will be spending it with Mrs Khan's mum.

She added: "It is going to be a lovely weekend for us.

"For my mum I'm her baby so she was just delighted when I finally got to have my own baby.

"Scarlett is now at that age where she is beginning to giggle.

"She loves her own reflection, she always laughs at her self in the mirror."

Mr and Mrs Khan hope to go back to the clinic this summer and have their fingers crossed they will be able to have a sibling for Scarlett.

Oxfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) offers couples one cycle of IVF before the woman's 35th birthday.

Although the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence advises CCGs should give couples three cycles of IVF, it is up to the discretion of the CCG how many cycles it offers.

Professor Tim Child, medical director at Oxford Fertility said: "It is not just the parents that affected by bringing a new baby into the world.

"You create a whole family, there are grandparents, aunties and uncles, so the impact IVF can have is fantastic."
