Queensland Opposition Leader Annastacia Palaszczuk has revealed her regrets at not being a mother, her loss of a baby and struggles to conceive through IVF
Queensland Opposition Leader Annastacia Palaszczuk has revealed her heartache at not having children.
She suffered a heartbreaking loss of a baby at age 34 and has struggled to conceive through IVF, the Courier-Mail reports.
“I never really believe people when they say they have no regrets – mine is not being a mother,” Ms Palaszczuk told the newspaper.
“I wish with all my heart I had children and I think I would’ve been a good mum.”
In a candid interview, Ms Palaszczuk said she had endometriosis, a condition which can affect fertility, and a doctor once told her the baby she lost at 11 weeks could have been her only chance to have a child.
The Labor leader, now 45, also opened up about her marriages to journalist George Megalogenis and Senator Joe Ludwig’s former chief of staff, Simon Every.
