At Bourn Hall we recognise that your physical, mental and emotional wellbeing all play an important role in boosting fertility and the success of treatments. The new Wickford clinic was designed to offer a holistic approach to fertility and we have an event coming up to introduce this approach.

A holistic approach to fertility recognises importance of wellbeing
Have you read our latest patient story? Hannah and Jemma talk about their fertility journey to complete their family and the twists and turns on the way.
They both wanted to have treatment to share the experience of carrying a baby, even after Hannah was diagnosed with some fertility issues.
“When we first discussed becoming parents using a sperm donor it was so exciting,” says Hannah. “I proposed to my partner Jemma on New Year’s Eve four years ago and presented her with an engagement ring and the date of our first appointment at Bourn Hall. We both wanted to have treatment so that we could have the shared experience of carrying a baby and had no reason to suspect that one of us would have fertility issues.”
In our latest blog, we spoke to Bourn Hall counsellor, Jackie, about how difficult this decision can be for patients and couples.
“If you are emotionally attached to an embryo, you may see it as a potential child, and that can affect a person on a very, very, deep psychological and emotional level,” says Jackie
“For some people it’s a real dilemma whether to return for treatment with their frozen embryos and how they will feel if they don’t use the embryos themselves. Sometimes this can be a matter of timing and talking to a counsellor can help you decide what is right for you.”
