When Alix Raven-Sarai and her husband Saran had been trying for a baby for 14 years without success they were at their wits end.
They had already had several unsuccessful attempts at IVF, had tried fertility drugs and had even had their hair strands analyzed for deficiencies in their diets.
As a last ditch attempt they decided to travel thousands of miles to Thailand for their fifth attempt at IVF - to see if the sun, sea and sand would help.
Amazingly being away from the stresses of life in the UK proved to be the answer - as Mrs Raven-Sarai fell pregnant with twins.
She gave birth to twins Tyler and Aliza in July - and says it was worth traveling thousands of miles to get her babies.
