IVF

Figures show an increasing number of same sex female couples seeking fertility treatment. We speak to Dr Hemlata Thackare, Consultant Gynaecologist and Fertility Specialist about her experience treating same sex couples. 

Heather and her wife Jacey had intra-partner egg donation treatment at the LWC Bristol and now have a baby son.

With three events taking place in Wales and the South West in the next month, we take a closer look at what happens during our open days and why people should come along.

Georgina and her husband Chris had IVF Lite treatment at the LWC Cardiff and now have two children Francesca and Harri.

We spent some time with the Deputy Manager in Embryology, Elena Linara-Demakakou, to find out more about what her job entails and to hear what  exciting new developments are coming up in the LWC Harley Street laboratory.

Natalie had IVF as part of the LWC's egg-sharing programme in Harley Street and now has her son Oliver.

The latest figures from the HFEA show that same-sex female couples seeking IVF has risen eight-fold in the last decade and the number of single women having fertility treatment has more than doubled. 

Woman’s Hour featured two women who had opted to start a family as solo mothers:  Genevieve Roberts who used donor sperm to have her children and Beth who used donor sperm and donor eggs from the London Egg Bank
