Embryo adoption: Lisa and Jamie's story

After years of fertility problems, Lisa and Jamie decided to adopt an embryo in Barcelona. This form of adoption still allows you to experience a pregnancy.

“I wanted so much to be able to carry my child” says Lisa.

“I think had I not ever experienced being pregnant there would have been a massive void in my life.”
