9now: ‘This could be the difference between me having a child and not having a child’

The dream of having a child has been put on hold for thousands of Victorians after the state government put a pause on non-urgent elective surgeries including IVF.

But for Melanie Swieconek, and many others like her, who is desperate to become a mum, this delay in treatment is heartbreaking.

Melanie was distraught when she heard IVF treatments had been put on hold and took to social media to deliver an emotionally-charged video message to Victoria Premier Daniel Andrews and Health Minister Martin Foley.
