Making Babies

Documentary following three couples as they each undergo a round of IVF. We find out what it is really like to put your hopes of having a baby in the hands of the medical profession.

For all our advances in medical science, the number of people suffering from fertility issues remains stubbornly high. Across the UK, one in seven couples - around three and a half million people - will experience difficulty starting a family. Of those, a third have what is known as unexplained infertility - both partners are apparently fertile, and yet together cannot conceive a child.

In this powerful documentary, we follow three couples as they each undergo a round of IVF treatment, in the hope of beating this maddening diagnosis. With frank testimony, we see what it’s really like to put your hopes of starting a family in the hands of the medical profession.
