Sylvia was speaking to mother Brooke Campbell about IVF treatment and the ‘daunting and overwhelming’ decision of what to do with leftover frozen embryos once a family no longer wants to use them.

As Brooke discussed the options available, a clearly-emotional Sylvia said: ‘Brooke, I know from my personal experience with IVF that so much goes into having a successful embryo.’

As she fought through tears, she continued: ‘…and having something sitting there that gives you the opportunity to make life for your family. How are you and your husband coping?’
