After a long struggle with infertility, Amber gave birth to a baby boy, Joey, in October

Women undergoing IVF and fertility treatment need more support for their mental health, a charity has said, after it found many women suffering from depression and suicidal thoughts.

Amber and Marco Izzo spent seven years and £20,000 trying for a baby when they realized they were on the verge of a nervous breakdown.

“Partly because we couldn’t afford it and partly because of our mental health, we decided to do one more IVF cycle,” says Amber.

Amber, 28, who lives in Peterborough, England, discovered she was infertile five years ago after being told she had two fallopian tubes, which she later had removed.
