Australian cricket fast bowler urges men to consider sperm donation after baby joy
- Megan Schutt is in India playing for Australia
- She and her wife had a baby using a sperm donation from the US
- They hope to raise awareness to increase sperm donations
Rylee was born three months premature, prompting Megan and her wife Jess to share their story — and join the call for more people to become sperm donors.
Rylee came into the world with the help of an Adelaide fertility specialist and a process called reciprocal IVF.
Megan's egg was fertilised using donor sperm and implanted into Jess's womb.
While the couple fell pregnant quickly, Jess had a complicated pregnancy — after several emergency hospitalisations and scans, doctors found that Rylee was not growing as she should have been.
