Dr Zeynep Gurtin, Venessa Smith and Dr Kamal Ahuja of the London Women's Clinic discuss the ethical and social aspects of egg freezing and the concerns regarding the 10 year storage limit for frozen eggs. 

Alison and her husband had treatment at the Bridge Centre - now LWC London Bridge - in 2005 using a surrogate (her sister-in-law) and donor eggs. Her twins Annie and Jake are now 11. 

 

Forty years ago on 25th July 1978, Louise Brown, the first baby in the world was born as a result of IVF. Advances in both science and technology mean that we can help more people achieve their dream of having a child. 

"IVF has made us become the family we had always wanted.  Even though it was a tough and grueling process we would do it again in a heartbeat."

"We have our final piece to our jigsaw and life now is truly complete."

"Having  a  child  on  my  own  is  without  a  doubt  the  most  challenging,  craziest  and  happiest  thing  I  have  ever  done."

"Parenthood has been the best challenge and the most amazing experience either of us have had the pleasure."

The findings from a study by Yale University presented at the ESHRE conference in Barcelona reveal that women freeze their eggs due to a "lack of stable partners". 

Professor Nick Macklon, Medical Director of the London Women's Clinic comments on the development of an "artificial ovary" to help women have children after cancer treatment and related fertility issues.
