About this podcast

While there are few robust data, it appears that crossing borders to access fertility treatment is a growing phenomenon. In this podcast Professor Culley discusses the driving forces for this growth in assisted reproductive travel. She presents some of the findings of a recent qualitative research project that explores the motivations, destinations and experiences of UK residents who have decided to travel abroad in their quest for conception.
