Welcome to my next clinic visit, this time I was in central London at Boston Place, which is a stones throw from Marylebone Station. Definitely the closest clinic to a station I’ve visited yet. It’s very discreet and the decor is plush and somewhat boutique hotel like, as you can see from the pictures. Plus you can see a very excited me, stood in my scrubs in a lab which was a real treat as I’ve never been into one before. You can hear all about it from Dr Cristina Hickman who was responsible for building the lab and has worked all over the world. I also spoke to Dr Anna Carby and Nurse Mary Kennedy.
A bit about me, if this is your first listen and viewing of The Fertility Podcast, I’m Natalie your host and I had successful treatment in 2014. You can read more about me here. For now all you need to know, is I’ve been working with Access Fertility who work with clinics around the UK, offering finance plans for you if you have to self fund your treatment. What I am doing is giving you an insight in the clinic, as someone who has been through treatment, to hopefully help you with your decision. 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? The HFEA have just relaunched their website ( in beta version) which you can view here that’s what we did. If there had a been a podcast about the different clinics and what they are like, when we had to choose I would definitely have listened to it. The world of fertility is fascinating and the people in it are truly remarkable. I hope you find this clinic visit useful and as interesting as I did.
