Bourn Hall Fertility Fair: Support for your fertility journey

Our Fertility Fair (  offers live chat with health professionals on Saturday 6 November from 11am to 1pm and you can begin browsing during National Fertility Awareness Week from 1 to 5 November.

For many couples who struggle to conceive it can come as a complete shock and they want to understand why they are not able to get pregnant when it seems so easy for those around them.

Others may already have had a reason to suspect they might struggle to conceive – irregular or painful periods, a sports injury, chlamydia infection in their teens, a family history of premature menopause – and would appreciate some advice.

Accessing the right information can play a key part in making the fertility journey a less lonely and daunting experience and support people in moving forward.

To help answer your questions, Bourn Hall is hosting a virtual Fertility Fair which is taking place throughout National Fertility Awareness Week starting on 1st November.

During the week we are inviting you to browse Bourn Hall’s virtual Fertility Fair to explore the different information booths and find out more about the main causes of infertility, as well as what you can do to boost your chances of a successful pregnancy.

Everyone’s fertility journey is unique and different, so on Saturday 6th November there will be the opportunity to ask your own questions in a live one-on-one confidential chat with specialist fertility nurses, fertility consultants, a nutritionist and patient support advisers.
