WOMAN REJECTED BY ADOPTION AGENCY DUE TO PREGNANCY PHOBIA

A woman has spoken of her heartbreak after she was rejected by an adoption agency because of her pregnancy phobia.

Her condition means that she is unable to conceive a child of her own as she is too terrified of pregnancy and the associated pain.

But the couple, from Elland, West Yorkshire, were rejected partly due to Kayleigh’s unusual phobia.
