Meet Lisa – a single LGBTQ person, who is sharing their fertility journey at the Agora Clinic.
This is a lovely story of one person’s journey to solo parenthood in the midst of a global pandemic. In this beautifully open and honest video, Lisa talks us through some of the highs and lows of their IVF journey.
Despite several setbacks and continuous support from the ‘amazing’ Agora team, Lisa is happily pregnant.
