Pargeter has been open about her struggle to conceive
previously, revealing she fell pregnant on her second round
The mum said she
hid her first IVF attempt from her bosses at ITV,
saying on ‘This Morning’ on 2 March: “I was keeping it a
secret from work the first time around.
“You don’t want to give them the indication you could be off
in nine months so you have to be careful.”
Pargeter advised mums to “do their research”
before and to “think about how you treat your body.”
“Have good friends and family around you,” she wrote. “If you
are lucky enough to have support around you, use it, talk to
people about it and be open.”
