Default Funding for 2nd child using PGD

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone had any experience of having a 2nd child using PGD? I have a beautiful HD free baby boy through PGD, we got NHS funding for 3 cycles and the 2nd was successful. We would now like another baby to complete our family but I don't think the NHS will fund this and it os £10,500 per cycle.
