Fair and positive treatment

In June 2013 CRGW were invited to participate in the Stonewall “Different Families, Same Love” panel at the Cardiff “Want to be a Parent Show”. One of our Embryologists, Helen Priddle (herself a lesbian), presented and engaged with the questions of the audience. At this event it became clear that there are a number of ways in which alternative families do not receive the support, information and treatment they are entitled to. With this in mind we have begun a project designed to rectify these deficiencies through the following aims:

Documenting Lesbians’ Experiences of Fertility Treatment
Clarifying Relevant Criteria with the NHS & HFEA
Education of Treatment Providers
