MIRACLE twins Logan and Lottie Humphreys were born after a pioneering fertility treatment using a hen’s egg yolk.

Mum Janet had almost given up hope of having a baby after four failed IVF attempts in five years.

Janet Humphreys almost gave up hope of having a baby, but now has cute 18-month-old twins Lottie and Logan

But then she and husband Neil heard about a unique procedure being carried out at a clinic in Greece and decided to give it one last shot.

Experts believe fatty acids in the egg can reduce the number of “killer cells” that occur in the immune system of some women and stop them falling pregnant.

The procedure was a success and the twins, born in January 2015, are now 18 months old.

Then in an incredible twist, Janet fell pregnant naturally and has since given birth to baby Olivia, six months.

Incredibly, after a pioneering egg yolk treatment she also fell pregnant naturally and had baby Olivia, who is now six months old

Account manager Janet, 38, said: “I can’t believe I finally have my twins. It really does seem like a miracle.

“It has taken so many years of devastation and anguish but now I can finally hold them in my arms.

“And it’s all thanks to the yolk of a hen’s egg. It seems unbelievable.

“Then I had Olivia. I fell pregnant only a few months after giving birth so the egg must have still been in my system.”

Janet and Neil, 35, a police officer, started trying for a family in 2010.

But Janet suffered from endometriosis — a condition where scar tissue sticks to the fallopian tubes making it difficult to conceive.

After a year of trying, the couple were referred to the Liverpool Women’s Hospital for a course of IVF. It failed, leaving the couple devastated.

Janet said: “We had pinned our hopes on the treatment working so to have found out it failed was heartbreaking.

“But we refused to give up hope. We were desperate to become parents so we knew we would just keep trying.”

The couple had another cycle of IVF in March 2012, and another a year later, but both attempts failed.

Janet said: “It was so heartbreaking. Each time, the doctors managed to extract lots of eggs so we thought there was so much hope. But then nothing happened.”
