We have come a long way since 1978 when the first test tube baby was born. In Australia today IVF accounts for close to close 3% of all births. Other developed countries show similar figures.

This broadcast features two women - an Australian and an American - both studying closely our brave new world of making babies, and its impact on men, women and the world.
