A woman told she had a one in a billion chance of having a baby naturally has become a proud mother-of-two - after seeking help from a white witch.
Finance worker Claire Anderson, 28, had always dreamed of having a family with husband Stephen, 41, but after two years of trying the couple underwent fertility tests and were devastated to be told that there was little hope.
Claire had suffered from polycystic ovaries and combined with her partner's low motility, the couple were informed their chances of conceiving naturally were virtually nil.
Desperate for a family: Claire Anderson, who thought she would never conceive, had two babies within 15 months of each other after being given fertility spells by a white witch (pictured with husband Stephen and children Ellie and Stephen Junior)
As Steven already had a child from a previous relationship, the couple didn't qualify for NHS assistance, and so faced a long struggle of trying to save or borrow enough money to pay for the expensive ICSI treatment which they required to give them any chance of conceiving.
But then she met white witch Wendy Binks, 41, in a chance meeting that was to change her life as she offered an alternative solution to her hopes of starting a family using Chakra Cleansing and special fertility spells.
Sceptic Claire and her husband Stephen, who are both Catholics, initially dismissed the suggestion, but desperate to have a child together they agreed to try it and keep an open mind as they began Wendy's 'magical' process, as well as leading a healthier lifestyle with Claire working hard to lose 2st in weight and Stephen stopping smoking.
Helping hand: Wendy Anderson and her coven helped Claire to conceive after just three sessions of fertility spells
They visited Wendy several times as the high priestess performed various chants, cleansing their energies and performing fertility spells before giving the couple a specially designed lunar sex schedule, and continuing to cast spells for them with her coven in their absence.
Just six months later, Claire was amazed to discover she was pregnant. Baby Eleanor Marie was born in September 2009, but the couple were stunned to discover that Claire was expecting again just six months later and baby Stephen was born in November 2010.
Now a happy mum-of-two, Claire is grateful for the magical assistance of her new best friend, Wendy, and is bracing herself for the possibility of adding to her brood with her latest psychic prediction that a third baby could be on the way soon.
Could it be magic? Claire and Stephen were overjoyed when they found out she was pregnant just six months after their first child was born
Claire, of Ellesmere Port, Cheshire said, 'Being a mum is even better than I could ever have imagined. This is all I could have even dreamed about back then.
'I don't know if it was magic, or just the fact that we were finally allowing ourselves to relax, but whatever it was Wendy certainly helped us to realise our dream and I can't thank her enough!'
Claire had always wanted to be a mum and when she married office worker Stephen in October 2006 the couple had already begun trying for a family.
When they discovered they wouldn't be able to conceive a child naturally, with Claire's polycystic ovaries and life-long smoker Stephen's motility down to just 5%, they were devastated.
Stephen already had a daughter, now aged 14, from a previous relationship the couple didn't qualify for IVF on the NHS.
Claire said, 'I always knew I wanted to be a mum, I've just always been a very maternal person. So to have that taken away from me was awful, there was nothing Stephen or anyone could have said to me to make a difference.'
The couple overhauled their diet, swapping all junk food for healthier meals and going on long walks with their dog, which saw Claire lose 2st in weight, and Stephen stopped smoking and also stopped carrying his mobile phone in his pocket as an extra precaution.
Then Claire met Wendy, aka Ladysnake, during a shopping trip with her sister who was going to get her belly-button pierced at her Enchanted store.
Claire said, 'I went with my sister to Wendy's shop one day and we just got talking because she was so lovely.
'She mentioned she had time to do a reading and within minutes she said she knew I was having problems, but that she kept getting the image of baby blue ribbons.
'I was astounded at some of the things she was able to tell me, so when she suggested fertility spells and Chakra cleansing I thought why not.
'Stephen took a little persuading and was quite sceptical but I told him it could even help his bad back and I think he just knew how desperate I was.'
The couple embarked on a series of sessions with Wendy's coven, beginning in June 2008, where they had their Chakras cleansed before Claire was asked to lay down on a piece of paper as her outline was sketched and surrounded with positive phrases, which they performed spells with.
They were given romantic homework, and details of how, when and where to best make love to increase their chances of conception, in line with the moon's monthly cycle.
Then six months later they discovered it had worked.
Claire said, 'That December before I found out I was pregnant was one of the worst lows that Stephen and I have been through and that was after Wendy's involvement.
'It got to New Year and we decided to try and move on and focus on nice things like going on lots of holidays.
'We had a year of crying and stress but little did we know that at that point I was already pregnant!'
Now eighteen months on, and a mum to two young children, Claire is delighted that she opened her mind to the possibility of asking a white witch for help, and recommends other would-be mums: 'don't rule anything out, or give up hope and keep an open mind.'
High priestess of her coven, Wendy, said: 'Claire's not the only one I've had success with, but she's the only one that's admitted that Paganism or magic has helped her.
'We did various rituals and spells to help Claire and Stephen, but a lot of the initial stuff was to do with building up trust and talking.
'We use lots of symbolism such as eggs, almost as an old midwife would. The rituals in total took place over eight or nine months and involved the whole coven.
'We drew around Claire and added hopes and wishes to the drawing so that when she wasn't there we could continue working.
'We gave the couple strict instructions on how and when to do it and the coven even went out into open places such as the beach and forest.
'When she first came in she's just come in for a reading and then the next minute I picked up that she was having problems and said they should both come in.
'I think they realised it was worth a go and I think Stephen saw that his wife was desperate. But things like this only work if you've built up trust together.
'I'm just really pleased for Claire and we've become great friends through this. And I've even just predicted her third, so watch out!'
