2020 has been declared International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife, by the World Health Organisation (WHO) to mark the bicentenary of the birth of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing.
Our fertility nurses make a huge contribution to the success of treatment and also to the experiences of patients on their journey with us.
To recognise the key roles they play and give a ‘behind the scenes’ view of the work of the clinic, we are profiling a number of our nursing team over the year.

Bourn Hall embraces International Year of the Nurse and Midwife
“I was like ‘no, I’m absolutely fine’, when I knew I wasn’t…”
Previous patient, Matt O’Malley, will open up about the issue of male infertility, in our upcoming free webinar: It’s a game of two halves – tackling male infertility on 11 February at 7pm.
He will also be joined by Oliver Wiseman, Urologist and male infertility specialist at Bourn Hall, who will explain what a semen analysis reveals, how to improve poor sperm quality and the treatment options available.
Fertility education campaigner, Rebecca Featherstone was 12 when her parents told her she was a ‘miracle baby’, one of the first in the world to be conceived through the breakthrough with IVF.
Her parents had treatment at our Cambridge clinic, before starting a new life in Australia.
Rebecca has since gone onto educate others on IVF and fertility treatment. For example, at just 18 she was asked to be part of a media campaign to persuade the Australian Government to part-fund IVF treatment.
Today we’re busting a common myth around secondary infertility. This is where despite having a child before, a person is unable to conceive naturally again. Treatment for secondary infertility is actually no different than treatment for primary infertility. People also often think that secondary infertility is uncommon, but this is, again, a myth. It’s been suggested that secondary infertility may even be as common as primary infertility.
If you’re currently struggling with secondary infertility, you can talk to one of our health professionals virtually. There’s no waiting list for this service and you can find out more here: moredetails.uk/consultation... See MoreSee Less
