Sell My Story features editor Helen O'Brien

Siobhon, 27, longed to be a mum but at 30st was too fat to conceive. So she had a gastric bypass — but quickly developed stomach pains. In a shocking twist, doctors revealed she was already three months pregnant — and surgeons had operated while she was expecting. Unable to nourish her baby, Kian was born premature at just 3lb 7oz. Thankfully he made a full recovery and Siobhon is now a svelte 12st.
