Sunday Herald Sun - Body and Soul - - NEWS -

We come across a lot of sur­pris­ing facts at body+soul, but I was blown away by this statis­tic from an Aus­tralian IVF clinic: only five per cent of women over the age of 40

who use IVF will con­ceive with their own eggs. The vast ma­jor­ity will use donor eggs.

It’s a re­al­ity that’s at odds with the im­age pro­jected by celebrity mums. On page 4 you can find out more about this tech­nique and why it’s still a ta­boo topic in Hol­ly­wood. In­side, you’ll also learn how to hit the ground

run­ning on a chilly win­ter morn­ing (page 6) and find out what’s re­ally in your favourite beauty prod­uct (page 16) – it’s not as scary as you think! Have a great week. Gemma
