There are potentially hundreds of thousands of frozen embryos stored across Australia right now and while some will become a bouncing baby, many won't be needed.

So what do you do with them? We speak to Mel Greig who has gone through the destruction of her embryos and a councillor who helps people make the best decision for them when it comes time to let then go.
