Scots couple first in country to undergo new fertility screening


    A SCOTTISH couple have become the first in the country to undergo groundbreaking fertility screening to prevent their son being born with cystic fibrosis.

    Lee and Stephen Smith, from East Lothian, were one of three couples to take advantage of the IVF-style tests, which screen for single gene disorders.

    Baby Thomas was born on 14 November last year and after a final set of tests, doctors confirmed he does not have the condition.
