Welcome to Nottingham, once again. My second clinic visit to the East Midlands. This time to Nuture. I was keen to have a chat with these guys as one of my best friends now has twins as a result of treatment at Nuture and another friend is going through treatment there . I’m originally from Nottingham so I still have a good number of friends there. I met with Nick Raine-Fenning and James Hopkisson who are the Medical Directors and were very passionate about the treatments they offer. Nurture was established in 1991 by the University of Nottingham to study the science behind IVF and develop new techniques and treatments. In 2014 we joined The Fertility Partnership, the largest provider of assisted conception cycles in the UK.
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.
