Incredibly saddened to hear about the death of Steve Hewlett today. His frank, moving and brave accounts of his illness on Radio 4's PM programme have moved me to tears, made me laugh and most of all filled me with admiration. An exceptional man. My thoughts go to his family and friends. #bbcpm

It was a weird day yesterday, being in The Mail. We’re still not used to it all. Thank you to them for this picture though - my favourite. And thank you for the support. We have a week off PM, then we’re back exploring the use of #EggDonation on Monday 13th November. Meanwhile I’m off to make the piece!

It was great to be on @BBCJersey this afternoon, and talk to @cathylefeuvre about #ivf and our series on #BBCPM. I worked in Jersey for 3 months in 2015 and have such fond memories of the place. It’s kind of them to think of me! #ivf #TalkFertility #infertility #rovingreporter #instagram @bbcradio4

If you missed the latest part of our Fertility series, please do listen again (link in bio ☝🏼) This is Lucy. Lucy & her husband Al adopted their little girl when she was 3 years old. In the piece, Lucy explains what it took to find the child they so desperately wanted, as we try to work out if adoption is the path for us. I’ve been blown away by the strength and courage of the people we’ve met so far, and in awe of how they’ve overcome such adversity.

The first piece in Our Fertility Series for 2018 went out tonight on #BBCPM. In this episode we look into overseas adoption, with the focus on #India. We’ve learnt so much in the making of this series. Overseas adoption really appeals to us, but it’s certainly not an easy option. If you want to listen to this extended report, the link is in the bio above ☝🏼 Hear as we learn about the magic, and the challenges, of adopting from abroad. #fertility #infertility #Overseasadoption #BBCR4 #letsdothis

We have a section! A handy link to “Our Fertility Journey” can now be found on the @BBCPM Homepage. This means you can catch up on our series more easily, or listen to any of the pieces all over again 😝 And it’s all in one place!

It’s funny isn’t it? You talk about “going public” and think you’re ok with it. But as soon as it’s out there in black and white, you start to feel nervous. I just hope it helps others in this desperately difficult situation. You’re not alone. Our series starts tonight on @BBCPM - that’s @bbcradio4 from 5pm. #ivf #fertility #infertility #bbcpm #bbcradio4 #instagram

This isn’t just one of the hardest posts I’ve ever had to write, it is the hardest post I have ever had to write. And that’s because - despite over 50,000 women having IVF every year - there is still a stigma when talking about it openly. Hushed words and embarrassment shroud what is, in essence, an illness. Jonny and I have been dealing with this illness for 4 years. But after six failed IVF cycles we have decided to speak out, in the hope our situation can help others. So tomorrow on The PM Programme, on BBC Radio 4, we start the first in our series. Looking at the difficulties surrounding infertility and meeting some amazing people who, in the face of diversity, have found alternative ways to become parents. Because despite medical advances, nearly 70% of IVF cycles fail. Then what? This is what we’ll be exploring with Eddie Mair on PM from 5pm. It’s scary to go so public, but if it helps just one other person going through this, then it’s worth it 💫#IVF #fertility #infertility #bbcpm #BBCR4 #instagram

"12 of the best moments from PM in 2017"... and we’re in there. Wow. Thank you @BBCPM and @BBCRadio4 for your support with the series so far. When our first piece aired on October 23rd, mapping our last round of IVF, we had no idea of how people would react. But we’re glad to say the response has been incredible, and we feel grateful to be able to raise awareness of such an important issue. Who would have thought that from something so totally hideous would come something good... So thank you for listening. And see you for more in 2018 💫 #ivf #fertility #infertility #childlessnotbychoice #Raisingawarness #bbcpm #BBCR4 #stayingstrong 💪🏼

This morning I joined @tashajenningsnd for a live #webinar chat. Me from the UK, Natasha from Melbourne (I know where I’d rather be on this wet winter day!! #jealous) Anyway, we discussed our fertility series on #bbcpm #BBCR4 (they’ve been listening in Oz!) plus living with #infertility & we talked about how to cope with the festive season when you’re involuntarily #childless. If you missed it but want to watch it back I’ll post up a link as to how very soon xx #ivf #fertility #survivingchristmas 💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼

I could not be prouder of this man. He is my husband, and the man I have dragged through the media on my quest for greater understanding when it comes to #infertility. See unlike me, this isn’t his day job. Jonny is far more comfortable behind the glass and away from the spotlight. Yet every time I’ve thrust a mic in front of his face over the past few months he has spoken honestly, and beautifully, and has totally excelled. So much so that Radio 4’s PM asked him to make his own piece. And it was cracking. The men spoke candidly about the pain they have encountered when struggling to have a baby. Something very few men find easy to speak so openly about, so for that alone guys I salute you 🙌🏼 Link to the series in bio 👆🏼Well done boys xx #bbcpm #BBCR4 #fertility #ivf #Eggdonation #Childlessness #raisingawareness #breakingstigma #proud

Since our (rather brutal) piece went out, documenting our last #ivf cycle on @BBCPM, things have been (just a little) crazy. Part of this process is to be completely honest, and if I am being completely honest, the first few days of ‘bearing all’ were tough. I felt completely exposed and worried I’d made a huge mistake... However we’ve spent some time together looking through the many lovely messages we’ve received. From good friends, of course, but not just from friends... from people I’ve not spoken to in years. People who may have met me just the once. Friends of friends, and old colleagues. But also from people I’ve never met. People desperate to send their good thoughts or share their own experiences. It’s incredible. And overwhelming. And so lovely of people to reach out. I’ve started to reply to as many as I can (bear with me) but as I do, I realise just how many people are touched by the same issues, in one way or another. For this reason alone we are so glad we’ve started this series. Stay with us. And thank you. 💫 If you want to hear what it’s really like to live through an IVF cycle, the link to the first part of our series is in my bio☝🏼 #ivf #TalkFertility #infertility #instagram #Bearingall #bbcpm #BBCR4
