Scott Morrison's wife has her desperate struggle to conceive and the & # 39; isolation & # 39; that she felt after a series of failed IVF treatments.
Jenny Morrison spoke Wednesday evening at an event organized by the Australian Jewish Fertility Network in Paddington, Sydney, where she revealed that she had been trying for a baby for 14 years.
The couple underwent 10 rounds of IVF, and although it was clear to her that her childhood love was desperate to become a father, she told the crowd that Mr. Morrison always remained positive.

& # 39; I felt on some points that it was much more important to me than to him and he was so beautiful, he said to me: & # 39; You're enough, we don't need the kids, but of course he wanted kids, & Mrs. Morrison said The Daily Telegraph.
WHAT IS ENDOMETRIOSIS?
Endometriosis occurs when cells in the womb lining are found elsewhere in the body.
Every month these cells react in the same way as those in the womb; build up, break down and bleed. Yet the blood cannot escape from the body.
Symptoms include pain, heavy menstruation and fatigue, as well as a higher risk of infertility and bowel and bladder problems.

Mrs. Morrison said it was much harder for her to accept the prospect of never becoming a mother.
The whole situation, she said, was & # 39; insulating & # 39 ;.
& # 39; Scott would be much easier to handle because he is just a very hard worker and obsessive at work – he could throw himself in, still sad inside, but he'd be much better off, & # 39; she said.
& # 39; But for me it was the holy grail. Everything for me was about wanting a baby and when you can't get it … it's like something natural that anyone can do, but you can't. & # 39;
When the couple was desperately looking for a baby, Mr. Morrison said to his wife: "You are enough … I don't need you to have children."
Mr and Mrs Morrison now have two daughters, 12-year-old Abbey Rose and 10-year-old Lily.
After the 10 failed IVF rounds, Ms. Morrison was diagnosed with endometriosis, a condition that leads to a higher risk of infertility.

As a result of the diagnosis, Ms. Morrison opted for surgery to remove scar tissue from her fallopian tubes, liver and intestine.
After the operation was restored, the couple moved to Cronulla, which has since given them the nickname & # 39; God's land & # 39; have given.
Three weeks later, at the age of 39, Mrs. Morrison discovered that she had naturally become pregnant with Abbey Rose.
Lily was born two years later, of course.
Mrs. Morrison was accompanied on stage by Peter Overton, who talked about Jessica and Jessica's own struggle to start a family, and the Greco-Australian comedian Mary Coustas, who spoke about her own 23 failed IVF attempts.
