“I Will Be A Mum On This Earth” – Woman Who Has Lost 22 Babies Says She Won’t Give Up

A heartbroken woman who has lost 22 babies – including one at just 12 hours old – has refused to give up her fight for a child, vowing: “I will be a mum on this Earth one way or another.”  Kerry Hutchinson, from Rugeley, Staffordshire, has gone through the devastation of burying three of her beloved babies, holding funerals for two and miscarrying 16, Birmingham Live reports. She has tragically recently lost her 22nd child. However, she claims doctors have told her she is healthy but just “unlucky”. “I will never give up trying. I need answers to why all my babies have died,” Kerry said. She added: “I grew up in care myself so family is very important to me. It’s something I’ve always wanted to have.”The brave 35-year-old, who is now planning her fourth baby burial, has dreamed of becoming a mum her entire life. But she has repeatedly endured grief and heartache while trying for a child. To her fury, she claims one doctor wrote in a letter to her: “I note you have been unlucky.” However, having held her first-born girl in her arms for 12 difficult hours before she died, the hope of what may seem to be an unreachable dream has never left Kerry. The ex-model and cleaner says she has always longed for a family of her own – and losing her tiny daughter, Paige, only made her need for a child grow stronger. “She was a little dot, just 2lb 2oz,” she recalled, in a tear-jerking interview with Birmingham Live. My little Paige was born prematurely and passed away at 12 hours old.” At a post-natal check, doctors investigating the death of Paige found that Kerry had cervical cancer. “They tried to laser the cancer away, they tried drugs but nothing was working,” she said. “So they removed most of my cervix.” She added that doctors told her to keep trying for another baby. They reportedly said her reduced cervix wouldn’t cause issues with her carrying babies but warned it would start her dilating early as the foetus grew to a certain weight. They told her any babies would be born prematurely. To her devastation, Kerry suffered several miscarriages while trying for another baby. However, she says she was told by doctors that there was nothing wrong. “We kept trying for a baby but I just kept losing them early on,” she said. “There was a little boy next, but he died in her womb in the second trimester. I refused to give birth to him, knowing he was already gone. It’s different to giving birth to the babies who had been alive and who I’d held in my arms.” Fertility treatment was the next option, and proved successful at first. Kerry became pregnant in just two months.But when baby Lucas was born at just 22 weeks, doctors could do nothing to save him. “He took a few breaths and then he passed away,” Kerry sighed. “It broke my heart. I was devastated. I had a nervous breakdown when I lost Lucas. I didn’t expect to bury a third child.” She added: “Losing Lucas is what finished us. In eight weeks I’d lost my son, my relationship, my house, my mortgage, my job, my mind – everything just completely fell apart. I sat in my room for weeks and nobody asked me if I was OK. I literally got up one day and I walked out of the house with just the clothes on my back, and I never looked back, as sad as it is.”Due to the fact that Kerry had suffered three losses in the second trimester, she was given a trans-abdominal stitch to help prevent pregnancy loss. “I was only the sixteenth person in the country to have one,” she explained. “I hadn’t been getting pregnant for a while because my body was doing lots of different crazy things. But me and my fiancé went to the IVF clinic, and by some miracle I’d managed to get pregnant.” At first, everything was going “brilliantly” according to midwives and doctors. They reportedly told Kerry they’d seen the baby’s heartbeat on four different scans. But before long, this sadly changed. Kerry said: “I’d gone in on Monday March 5, as a normal scan date, to be signed off to a different hospital”. Her close pal has set up a JustGiving page, with a post describing how Kerry has lost more than 20 “beautiful angels” and lived a life of heartache that “most will never understand”. The post reads: “Losing one beautiful angel may be unlucky but over 20 needs answers. It adds: “Let’s raise enough money to fund appointments, and possibly the need for IVF, so that Kerry and Connell can get the answers they deserve.”Photo Credit: Getty
