Reflects on the contractual approach adopted by the court in ARB v IVF Hammersmith (CA) when considering whether the costs of raising a wrongfully conceived child were recoverable. Discusses claims that a clinic breached an express or implied contractual term to obtain consent to the thawing and implanting of frozen embryos, and criticises the court's extension of tortious principles from earlier case law into a contractual context.
