100s tell IVF Prof ‘you got me pregnant’
FERTILITY expert and IVF pioneer Lord Robert Winston says he gets “embarrassed daily” by women thanking him for helping them conceive.
Prof Winston said women shower him with gratitude in the street “pretty much every day”.
He added: “It’s lovely, but it’s always embarrassing.”
He said: “A woman came up to me at a busy station in Paris, grasped me by the shoulders and shouted at the top of her voice, ‘ you got me pregnant’.
The Labour Peer, 77, is working on new IVF technology. At the NHS Heroes awards on Monday, he told the Mirror: “I’m looking at a piece of science that may make IVF much cheaper and more successful.”
THANKED Prof Winston
