And so, it was such an emotional and joyful experience to be at our beautiful Maman’s wedding to the gorgeous Brian. This picture is team Morgan-Vaughan Jones-Martin in all its glory. I got to hold my sister-in-law for the first time in two years and I’m not sure it’s sunk in yet just how hard it was being separated from her through Covid & my first foray into motherhood.
Summer’s not out just yet and the good times keep on rolling with my sister’s wedding next month!
Here’s to family and reunions and laughter and tears and sweaty dance floors and bubbles… ALL the bubbles!”

Hannah Vaughan Jones IVF
Prior to welcoming her son, Matheson Calon Tallett Vaughan Jones or “Sonny,” Hannah and her husband, Lewis spent years trying to conceive and even documented the stark realities of their IVF journey on YouTube. They had gone through 15 rounds of IVF. But in 2019, just before Christmas the couple announced the arrival of Sonny.
“We’ve been through many years of heartache, but we’ve got the best Christmas present at the end of it all,” said Hannah.
“We have been very public about it for the past three years or so, but in the years before that it was very private and painful – and there was a lot of shame involved which anyone going through infertility will be familiar with.”
“But we have been lucky. We are the very, very lucky ones.”
Lewis also said it was harrowing watching his wife going through round after round of IVF which involved frequent injections and hormone treatment.
“We wanted a family, but frankly we didn’t think it was going to happen for us,” said Lewis.
“In fact, I think we’d already emotionally moved on. We said to each other that this was going to be our last round [of IVF].”
“And it was the last little embryo that we had left. We’d sent it off for testing and the results came back inconclusive, so we didn’t think it was going to work at all.”
“But we’d come this far, so we made the decision to put the embryo back in and, unbelievably, it grew to become Sonny.”
The couple said they spent around £80,000 on private IVF treatment after being given one round for free on the NHS in England.
Hannah Vaughan Jones Miscarriage
After seven rounds of IVF, Hannah suffered a miscarriage.
“I’m turning into a geneticist. Just like that. Having spent years worrying about every hurdle on the way to getting pregnant, I’m now obsessed with the new (new to me, at least) obstacles to actually having a baby,” she said.
“I’m also a little cross with myself for having never considered the cause of miscarriages, chromosomal abnormalities and genetic defects before.”
“Towards the end of last year, a friend I met through the #TTC community told me that I should focus not on the pregnancy bit but on the actual baby. Visualize your child, she said. It made me cry just thinking about it, but also made me realize just how naïve many of us are on our fertility paths. Maybe that’s unfair.”
“Perhaps “many of us” is too strong a term. I’m fully aware that a lot of people struggling with infertility, especially over a marathon term, will be able to get pregnant but can’t seem to hold on to their little bean. In my case, I’m just one miscarriage down (just one, she says rolling her eyes) and so it has been a very steep – and at times crushing – learning curve to discover that it’s not just about getting pregnant. The next hurdle is having an actual baby. And an actual healthy baby at that.”
She added, “We recently found out that our embryo was chromosomally abnormal and therefore destined to fail. I genuinely didn’t know whether to be relieved or destroyed by this news. On the one hand, we now have a plausible explanation for the miscarriage. I can get pregnant and my body knows what to do with a foreign cell mass inside.”
