Women will be able to delay motherhood by freezing parts of their ovaries at the first specialist fertility clinic to be opened in Britain.
Those in their twenties and early thirties will be able to “bank” their ovarian tissue when it is most fertile, and have it re-implanted years later.
The procedure, which could cost as much as £16,000, is expected to be available within the next six months. At present only a few countries, including the United States, Denmark and Belgium, offer the option. To date, 19 babies have been born as a result.
