London, May 02 (ANI): A UK couple, who struggled to have a baby after three miscarriages and failed IVF treatments, are now proud parents of twins — thanks to a mix of soya and egg yolk.

According to Stacy and James Bodle, an experimental fertility treatment using egg yolks and soya oil cured the condition causing the miscarriages and they are now celebrating the arrival of twins Libby and Harry.

“I’ve hardly slept for the 13 weeks since they were born but I’m not complaining,” the Daily Mail quoted Stacy, as saying.

“They have been the happiest weeks of our lives. We were trying for three years for a family and we started to think this day would never come. There were so many awful times and to sit here and see our lovely twins staring back at us is wonderful,” she added.

The treatment involved a combination of natural fats made up from egg yolks and soya oil.

Doctors believe this intralipid liquid, a calorie-rich potion normally used in tube-feeding sick patients, could help more women achieve their dream of motherhood.

Studies show a remarkable success rate at overcoming an immune system problem in which “killer cells” attack a fertilised embryo.

“It’s basically just a lot of calories, but research suggests that it can suppress the natural killer cells,” said Dr Adel Shaker, medical director at CARE fertility clinic in Sheffield. (ANI)
