    Actress Melody Chen’s road to motherhood is nothing short of miraculous. After trying for a baby for nine years, experiencing a miscarriage in 2012 and a failed in vitro fertilisation (IVF) attempt, the One FM 91.3 DJ finally delivered twins naturally in November 2017.

    And although a miracle, it had been a delicate pregnancy for Melody, who was placed on strict bed rest at home since she was 20-weeks pregnant.
