Lytina Kaur was was told she may never be able to give birth after being diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia, an aggressive cancer of the white blood cells, at the age of 17 and receiving a bone marrow transplant a year later.
However 13 years and several miscarriages later, Lytina, 32, from Wollaton in Nottingham, found out she had fallen pregnant - and she is now a mother to four young daughters.
Lytina gave birth to her first daughter Kiran in September 2015. Her twins, Kajal and Kavita, were born via surrogate in India two months later.
And in June 2016, Lytina gave birth to Kiyara at the Queen's Medical Centre, Nottingham.
But before becoming a mother-of-four Lytina suffered 17 miscarriages in just five years, the first of which happened in 2010 after she conceived twins.
Lytina, who first started trying to get pregnant after her 2007 wedding, said: 'I had 17 miscarriages in total and they were all hard but that one was the most difficult because it was my first and I had been carrying them for a long time.'
