She had to be cleared for sexually transmitted diseases before the clinic would agree to treat her, and underwent an hour-long phone interview with a nurse to discuss her motivation for having a child.A 60-minute chat, not even conducted in person, might seem paltry considering the magnitude of the exchange.But beyond those few physical characteristics, neither Jessica nor Freya will know any more.This is because last June, Jessica, 36, flew to Copenhagen and was artificially inseminated with the sperm of an anonymous Danish donor — and more and more British women are doing exactly the same thing.And Jessica, who has a brother and three sisters, feels confident she has made the right choice for her.‘I don’t have a single regret.I have loved being pregnant and I am looking forward to meeting my daughter. By my late 20s, I was in a relationship and I thought I would get married and have them the usual way. It would have been nice to have met someone to share my life with, but it hasn’t happened.

The more sperm the clinic sells, the more money it makes.
