I’m a grown-up IVF baby – here’s what I want IVF parents to know
Loren was born in 1994, she was one of the first babies in Australia conceived through embryo donation and IVF, she has an important message all IVF parents need to hear.
One night, when I was thirteen, my parents sat me down. Being the kind of child I was, I assumed I was in trouble.
