Julia Bradbury was so desperate to “provide a playmate” for her son Zephyr she underwent 5 rounds of IVF and at age 44 is now expecting two playmates, twins! “It’s a lovely thing to be able to give that gift of a sibling, Zeph’s very excited about becoming a big brother.”
Enjoying, loving and watching your child grow can be such a huge motivator to have another baby. Your desire to provide a full and happy life for that first child leads you to want to provide a larger, loving family, a buddy, a sibling. It’s a different desire to wanting a first but it’s an instinctive drive all the same.
That feeling is no less painful, but it’s a lot less understood. Let’s hope little Zephyr is thrilled with his new playmates and Julia’s desire is finally fulfilled.
