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
