Find out more about Fertility Fest 2018 at Bush Theatre London - Tuesday 8th to Sunday 13th May 2018.
I will be talking about – SEED –along with the project's liaison from Newcastle Fertility Centre at Life, Dr Jane Stewart at:
'The Doctor in the Bedroom' session on Friday 11 May, 11.45
No one would chose to make a baby in a laboratory. Would they? It’s hardly roses and candles. Is it? So what does it really feel like to have the doctor in your bedroom?
We will be joined by Izzy Judd – author of the best-selling memoir Dare To Dream and Dr James Nicopoullos, Senior Consultant at Lister Fertility Clinic. We will be discussing what it feels like on the other side too – i.e. to be that doctor in the bedroom! Chaired by Sophie Sulehria.
SEED has given me the opportunity of hearing so many inspirational stories. One of which is Jessica Hepburn's - having been through eleven rounds of IVF, she has become a pioneer in raising awareness of what it means to struggle to create the family you long for. In 2016, Jessica Hepburn with Gabby Vautier, founded Fertility Fest. Fertility Fest is dedicated to exploring the personal and political issues related to fertility, infertility and assisted conception, through the power of the arts.
