Alternative Family Week is a week-long series of UK events held from September 13-19, each aimed at raising awareness about modern families and giving advice to would-be mums and dads.
The seeds of a fertility exhibition series were sewn in 2013 after they adopted their first child – Olivia and Andrew started Routes to Parenthood
This month I’ve been asked to speak at the annual Fertility Show which is held every year at Olympia. Now in its sixth year, more than 3,000 visitors are expected to attend and there is no better forum for hearing about the latest thinking in the world of fertility and for finding out about the huge number of clinics and complementary therapies that are available to help you make your baby dreams come true.
There’s a great line from a song by the band Pulp which has been playing in my head all week – “Let’s all meet up in the year 2000, won’t it be strange when we’re all fully grown.” Nowadays the Millennium seems a distant memory. I am definitely fully grown and can hardly believe it’s already 2015. It makes me wonder what would happen if we fast-forwarded to the future and met up in 2050 instead. What would the world of fertility look like then?
