Why my baby really is magic: Woman claims fertility spell helped her conceive after six years of trying
Hayley Byrne, 25, had been on an NHS waiting list for a treatment similar to IVF when her mother, Karen Tomlinson, offered to help out.
She agreed to don a fertility bracelet, specially woven in the red and white May-pole colours while Karen recited a white witch's chant.
Just four weeks later Hayley was amazed to discover she was pregnant.
Now she and bricklayer boyfriend Daniel Shaw, 28, are the proud parents of baby boy, Daniel.
The happy couple even believe they will be able to fulfil their dreams of having a large family with the help of Karen's neo-pagan 'interventions'.
Hayley, of Burnage, Greater Manchester, said: 'I've always been desperate for a child and so has Daniel. We were devastated to think we may not be able to have any of our own.
'Still, I only put the bracelet on to humour my mum - I didn't really put much stock into it.
'Then four weeks later I found out I was pregnant. We were over the moon.'
Hayley added: 'I had tried everything under the sun - we'd undergone all the tests, some of which were quite painful.'
After seeking medical advice, the couple were advised to sign up for intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) treatment, where Hayley's eggs would be taken and fertilised with Daniel's sperm before being reinserted to grow in the womb.
Unable to afford to go private, the couple faced a wait of several years on the NHS waiting list for their one chance at ICSI, which only has a 30 per cent success rate.
In May last year, Ms Tomlinson presented her daughter with a unique gift - a fertility bracelet which she had spent weeks preparing and had left 'charging' in the sun on her pentagram for over a month.
