100s tell IVF Prof ‘you got me pregnant’

Daily Mirror - - NEWS - EX­CLU­SIVE BY ASH­LEY RAIN­BIRD Deputy Show­biz Ed­i­tor

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
