A couple from Israel who went through 18 rounds of IVF have welcomed triplets, saying the babies were ‘worth the wait’
The couple, Shiran and Rani Hanan, had been having fertility treatment for three and a half years before the last treatment was successful, according to Israel National News
Despite the health risks, the couple decided to keep all three embryos, but Shiran, 30, was hospitalised at just 19 weeks due to complications.
The triplets, two boys and a girl, were born at just 32 weeks and recently returned to the Wolfson Hospital for a routine check-up.
In the UK, 18 rounds of IVF would cost in the region of £130,000.
