Festive times are milestones that can be difficult for many reasons. Stress comes when our thoughts and feelings are out of synch with the actions we are taking. This can be particularly true over the festive season when there is considerable pressure to appear outwardly happy despite inner turmoil. We have created a series of blogs giving various coping strategies.

“I am a really positive person and I was genuinely happy for my friends when they conceived but I think the crunch time for me was when I had five close friends who all announced they were pregnant in the same month our second round had failed,” admits Natalie - who tells the ups and downs of the couple's fertility journey in our Fertility Blog.
A fresh cycle of IVF takes about 6 weeks from starting the medication through to embryo transfer and it can feel quite intensive with appointments for scans etc. We offer flexibility over appointments and having a clinic not too far from home means that you can fit treatment in around other commitments.
The times when you might not want to travel far are after egg collection and embryo transfer. Knowing this, Bourn Hall has opened clinics across the East of England so that there will be one close to you.
Our blog features the Norwich clinic which is proud of its excellent success rates, patient-centric approach and friendly and committed staff.
If you want to know more about any aspect of fertility treatment we have an event coming up in Norfolk Fertility Awareness Event Norwich
