Babymaking exists to help the estimated 50,000,000 people worldwide who are affected by infertility. It includes test-tube conception; surrogacy; swapping eggs, sperm and embryos; and freezing, dissecting and transferring embryos. Some of the projects for the next ten years in this field are egg freezing, sex selection in embryos, the detection of genetic diseases before and embryo implants in the womb, egg and embryo surgery, the "fusing" of embryos and splitting embryos to make identical twins. Scientists predict that in the next 25 years "pregnancy" could be entirely in the laboratory and male pregnancy may be a reality. This book is designed to help people understand what is going on in laboratories around the world, how the ethical and legal dilemmas are being tackled and who is attempting to control the new reproductive technologies. Susan Downie, a medical writer, travelled to four continents and inter viewed more than 230 people from 27 countries before writing "Babymaking".
