Animation videos

The 2 animations below were produced by the Fertility Education Initiative (FEI), chaired by Professor Adam Balen.

The FEI is a multi-organisation collaboration which includes the British Fertility Society (BFS), the RCOG and the FSRH, amongst many others.

They were written by Grace Dugdale, with contributions by Adam Balen, and draw on some of the research on fertility awareness amongst teenagers by Jacky Boivin.
