What this allusion to the strangeness of assisted reproduction suggests is that, while this form of family building challenges the nuclear family norm, the ideology of biological relatedness remains deeply engrained. In deviating from internalised norms and cultural ideals about what is ‘normal’ and ‘natural’, people seek to negotiate new reproductive pathways and kinship formations as best as they can. While much has been said about the ways that assisted reproduction confronts the cultural significance attributed to gender difference – to the father who provides the sperm and the mother who gives birth – one lasting message from the experiences of those involved in assisted reproduction 18 Tabitha Freeman is that of the interdependency between the sexes and between individuals in creating families.

Their report focussed on infertility and its alleviation and research on human embryos. Following the development of IVF, egg and embryo donation were now possible and there was also a new form of gestational surrogacy to consider in which an embryo created by IVF using a couple’s egg and sperm could be carried to birth by another woman.
