What do you know about fertility? What about infertility? What are your options if you want to become pregnant or be a parent?

In the UK, access to IVF and assisted reproduction isn’t the same for everyone. Age, circumstance, relationship status, and income will all play a part. Additionally, but perhaps unsurprisingly, Northern Irish provision is far below that of the rest of the UK.

Join writer, actor and comedian, Diona Doherty, Clare Murphy, Director of the British Pregnancy Advisory Service, Jessica Hepburn, one of the UK's leading voices on fertility, and Ciaran Moynagh, human rights and family lawyer, as they combine lived experience and expertise to discuss fertility, infertility and assisted reproduction, looking beyond the clickbait headlines and confusing statistics at the reality, politics and economics of IVF, surrogacy, and routes to parenthood.

Lynette Fay, award-winning presenter and producer, will chair this discussion.

There will be time for questions which can be submitted live through Zoom’s chat function.
