Richard Mackney is a journalist and broadcaster, and was a reporter on ITV's GMTV. He is now a freelance writer and producer. He and his wife Rosie Bray - a TV producer - started trying to conceive after five years of being together but, two and a half years and countless prenatal vitamins and ovulation kits later, there hadn't been even a phantom pregnancy. As difficult as it was to face, they knew something was wrong and they needed to get help. So began their adventure into IVF, via blood tests, sperm tests, injections and probes, becoming involuntary experts on embryology through failure, despair, persistence and success. They now have a daughter, Molly.
