My final visit of this season of clinic visits with Access Fertility took me to Epsom. A little fact for you – I used to present a weekly radio show at Epsom Hospital Radio (if you’ve not read anything about me I was a radio presenter for 15 years until having my son). It’s been about that long since I visited Epsom and it was a very short stroll from the train to Newlife, a lovely building as you’ll see above. Newlife Fertility Centre brings together a highly qualified, caring and professional team under the auspices of medical director, Mr Amin Gafar an internationally respected expert in assisted conception, with over 20 years’ experience at the forefront of fertility medicine. He has gathered around him a team of highly qualified professionals, who bring their own expertise and dedication to patient care to Newlife.
In my chat, you will be hearing from Mr Amin Gafar and Blair Sowry, Lead Embryologist. Newlife has it’s own holistic centre, including a yoga room and acupunture suite which I thought was a lovely touch
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.
