Is there anyway to have a certain sex baby from eating food or sex position?

    @pollypower that's a great question. I have been seeing a lot of things lately around this topic too

    Hi @pollypower and @Caiti, there are many traditions and beliefs surrounding this, however I don't have any evidence to support this notion. New technologies in artificial insemination and in vitro fertilisation provide opportunities for sex-selection, however its only performed in certain situations such as reducing the risk of sex-linked genetic disorders.

    Do you know if the National Health and Medical Research Council have responded to their public information and opinion call (from July-September 2015) on the idea of lifting the ban on IVF gender selection for reasons other than medical ones?

    Hi @MsBlueStreak, as far as I'm aware in Australia -the indications for this currently remain the same. Click here for more info.
