The 2017 Fertility Show

Reading the advanced information about this year’s Fertility Show, we were struck about how little information there was about finding an egg donor in the UK. It appeared that the majority of the stands were taken by clinics from overseas promoting egg donation in their country, but almost nothing at all from the UK. We […]
