Pirate FM has learnt some Cornish couples could be forced abroad if they want to have children.

 

It is because the amount of IVF couples in the Duchy can have is limited.

 

Now charities say they could be forced as far away as Barcelona for a baby.

 

Kate Brown is from Infertility Network UK:

 

“I think it’s partly to do with our attitude to infertility here in general. I don’t think we’re always very supportive of it. A recent study’s shown that GPs are not always very good at helping patients, are not always very good at informing patients. More than half of them don’t feel that their GP knew enough or was helpful enough.

 

“We do have a postcode lottery in this country. Whether you get treatment depends on where you live and it’s exactly the same with egg donation here. There are some places where the situation is alright and you wouldn’t have to wait too long. But, there are a lot of places where there simply is no access to a donor egg if you need one at all, which is often the case with older women”
