HeyReprotech is on hiatus, but here are some of my favourite stories from this year...
One of the reasons I started HeyReprotech was to tell important stories that general-interest publications might not go for. Not everyone cares what happens when an egg donor discovers she's passed on a genetic disease, for instance, or that the concoction an embryo is grown in is a trade secret. But some people — some of you — care deeply.
In case you missed them the first time round, here are a few of my favourite HeyReprotech stories from 2021:
When intended parents offer surrogates a post-birth relationship, do they mean it?
The stuff in the petri dish can affect your IVF baby
What does it tell us that so many doctors used their own sperm?
37-year-old single woman finds a sperm donor on Facebook
Is it okay to treat patients whose prospects are close to nil?
What's it like to find the donor after years of searching?
When an anonymous donor discovers a genetic disease
