About the Author

Jessica Hepburn is one of the UK's leading voices on fertility, infertility and IVF. She is the author of the book The Pursuit of Motherhood and writes and speaks widely in the press and media on the subject of assisted conception and alternative routes to parenthood. In 2016, following her ten-year tenure as executive director of the Lyric Theatre Hammersmith, she founded Fertility Fest, the world's first arts festival dedicated to the science of making babies and modern families. In 2018 she was nominated as one of Amnesty International's Women of Suffragette Spirit and won the Fertility Foundation's inaugural Fertility Hero Award for her campaigning work.
