A woman with just half an ovary, who had all but given up on having a baby, has given birth to a baby boy, according to Britain's Daily Mail.

Trudi Siviter, who was left with just part of her left ovary after suffering cancer of the cervix as a teen, had two ectopic pregnancies as an adult and three failed attempts at in-vitro fertilization.

Doctors said what was left of her ovary was not functioning properly and believed her womb was not strong enough to carry a child. But three months before having a complete hysterectomy, the 39-year-old discovered she was pregnant.

She gave birth naturally to a son at Staffordshire General Hospital in the United Kingdom on Dec. 7. Alfie was born eight months into the pregnancy and weighed just 3 pounds, 8 ounces, but doctors say he is healthy.

"It's one of God's little miracles that she has given birth to baby Alfie — he has found his way around so many obstacles," obstetrician Karen Powell, who has been treating Siviter for three years, told the Daily Mail. "It just goes to show we can never say never."
