In 1978, by chance, and chance alone, from dozens of women in the first trials of IVF, the first IVF child was born in Bristol, and the possibilities for women and men hoping to have children changed forever. Nearly thirty years later an estimated eighty million people now suffer from infertility worldwide, and the technology that can help them increases all the time.

In Everything Conceivable Liza Mundy explores the meanings and ramifications of the changes in the way we make babies. The first journalist to explore this subject in depth, she explores the workings of the fertility drugs industry, gay families, surrogate mothers, egg donors, the increasing number of twins and much more through the stories of those intimately involved.

Everything Conceivable also brings into focus a new truth- for the first time in human history we are now able to cheat evolution.
