I was working in a London hospital and on the ward was an older nursing auxiliary, unable to have children, who firmly rejected the former story as a scam "all done with mirrors" and ardently believed in the latter, as it gave her hope. We nurses, who knew better, scoffed.
Ironic, that since then, doubt has been cast on those pictures (letters, 7, 13 March) and a woman in her 60s has had a baby. All these years later, I feel I owe her an apology.
