Sophie Sulheria and Jonny Baker
Sophie Sulehria is a BBC reporter. She and her husband Jonny Baker started IVF after being told they would not be able to conceive naturally due to Sophie's endometriosis and low ovarian reserve. But six failed rounds and forty thousand pounds later, the couple came to realise the treatment wasn’t working for them. They knew they would need to consider other options if they want to have a family.
Sophie and Jonny since decided to share their journey with a series of reports for Radio 4's PM Programme. “Our Fertility Journey” followed the couple as they met people had found alternative ways to have a child. The series is now being made into a podcast for Radio 4.

Now Sophie is spending her time, doing as much as she can in the world of fertility. She is regularly asked to appear and speak at events, appeared on programmes such as The Wright Stuff, BBC London, and Jeremy Vine on Radio 2 talking about the pain that involuntary childlessness brings. She has also been asked by The Fertility Network to be their ‘workplace ambassador’ after her work visiting big companies and offering lunch talks and employee support.
