Our 2018 Cambridge Fertility Fayre offered a relaxed, informal environment for people to find out more about different aspects of fertility. We were delighted that so many took the opportunity to drop-in and have a chat to the various health professionals and therapists.
Our next open event is the Fertility Awareness Roadshow in Chelmsford. By reserving a place you can have a free fertility consultation.
“The fertility journey is very personal and the Fayre created a supportive environment to share those stories and get advice .”
– Laura Carter, Lead Fertility Nurse at Bourn Hall
“Although infertility impacts both men and women, the good news is that with some easy diet and lifestyle changes, your reproductive health and chance of conceiving can be significantly increased in a relatively short space of time.”
– Amy Huggins, Nutritionist
Amy Huggins wrote a guest blog for us about how to manage PCOS with nutrition.
“It’s not all about IVF, it’s about general health, understanding the medical conditions and the risk factors that can lead to sub-fertility issues. It’s about having access to the best diagnostics and treatments the world can offer to provide hope and fulfil dreams.”
– Michael Close, Proxceed
Michael knows first-hand what it means to struggle with infertility and he shared his story with us.
“It is really important that people get the right advice about fertility sooner rather than later and that is why we had the idea of hosting our Fertility Fayres.”
– Tanya Turner, Bourn Hall’s Head of Patient Services
For those who missed the fayre there is still an opportunity to get free fertility advice.
Carole Bowen provides fertility acupuncture, which can help in releasing buried emotions and coping with stress on the fertility journey.
Carole works in Cambridge. Patients at our Wickford clinic have the opportunity of acupuncture from Alison Williamson, who explains how it can help in a guest blog.
“There are no ‘silly questions’ in fertility treatment, everyone’s experience is different.”
– Rebecca Ward, part of Bourn Hall’s Patient Services team
Knowing how you get pregnant naturally can help you to understand what might have gone wrong. This Fertility Blog post explains.
