London Women’s Clinic – Cardiff
Another day, and another clinic – this time I went to Cardiff. I have a friend who lives in Caerphilly so along with being able to use one of my favourite cheese jokes (How to you handle a welsh cheese… ) I got to see my friend, ad have a little trip into Cardiff centre, which is where my Dad went to University, so I had to take the above picture! We had a lovely brunch, before I headed to Cardiff’s London Women’s clinic. In my season working Access Fertility, I’m getting to do a great UK tour and it was an easy train journey from London. LWC’s clinics in Cardiff and Swansea have been providing expert fertility treatment and support to the community in Wales for over 25 years.
You will be hearing from Hemlata Thackare, Consultant Gynaecologist and Fertility Specialist, Jeanette MacKenzie, Senior embryologist and lab manager and Louise Mitchell, Deputy Nurse Manager.
If you don’t know anything about me – I’m Natalie and I host The Fertility Podcast which I created in September 2014, once pregnant with my first child having had fertility treatment. I’m not an expert in fertility – my background is in radio (hence making podcasts) so I’ve combined my life experience with my work experience to put a voice out there for infertility issues.
Finding out you need to have fertility treatment is massive, it’s overwhelming. So when it comes to choosing a clinic it can feel like another stress, will it be the best place for you. Of course you can look at the HFEA website for success rates – that’s what we did. If there had been a podcast about the different clinics when I was choosing I would have definitely listened to it. The world of fertility is fascinating and the people in it are truly remarkable and I hope you find my chats with these experts as interesting as I did.
