    Maddison Sullivan-Thorpe shared a heartfelt Instagram post on Thursday, detailing her struggle to fall pregnant after five rounds of IVF

    ‘Motherhood sounds so f**king magical – I’m sure it is every bit as lovely and brilliant as everyone describes.

    ‘But… I’ve also met and spoken with some pretty happy, loved-up women who for a variety of reasons have not had children; and you know what they seem to have found some pretty darn special magic in their lives too.’

    Ms Sullivan-Thorpe said the past two years had drained her ‘energy and emotional capability’ while leaving her feeling ‘helplessly out of control’.

     ‘To the women and men who walk this path, I feel so deeply for you’

    ‘But man it’s made me tough and emotionally I know now nothing can break me,’ she wrote.

    ‘Two years since all this began and I am finally at peace with whatever the future holds for me.

    ‘Kids don’t equal happiness and it’s so damn comforting for people like me, crippled by uncertainty to know that.’ 

    Ms Sullivan-Thorpe has been open about her struggles to fall pregnant and last December shared a video montage of her administering her hormone injections.

    ‘To the women and men who walk this path, I feel so deeply for you – it’s one hell of a fight, physically, emotionally and financially,’ she wrote last year.

    The emotional post comes after a tumultuous year for her fiance. 

    Just weeks ago he pleaded guilty to drink driving after smashing his car into four parked cars in Melbourne in April.
