How far would you have gone to have your baby? 

Natalie Lovett tried for seven years to fall pregnant in Australia, and when that didn’t work, she travelled to the United States where she bought anonymous donor eggs and sperm.  

The end result was Lexie, now 19 months, and a very happy and besotted mother.  

Natalie Lovett is the feature of tonight’s Australian Story on the ABC. Hear her talk about her experience in the lead up to her journey to the US.
