Ice Babies [electronic resource]

Freezing embryos gives people a chance to have children even though they may be faced with a catastrophic illness. This episode introduces Hilary Spanswick, who is in fear for her life because of breast cancer, which signals the end of her hopes of motherhood. There's one option: freezing embryos. It's a risk, as the fertility drugs could encourage her cancer. If it works, it will be her only chance of having a baby. Frozen embryos, however, can lead to problems. Natallie Evans, for example, froze six embryos with her partner, but when they split up, he demanded that the embryos be destroyed. Professor Robert Winston meets Natallie to explore the question of who should own the ice babies.
