This is the second episode in my season of clinic visits, working with Access Fertility. Bourn Hall Clinic, the world’s first IVF clinic and actually where we had successful treatment, so a very special place for our family. Based in a lovely little village called Bourn, in Cambridge – this clinic almost makes you speechless when you first drive up the long drive. Once again, I will let the podcast speak for itself however to give you a quick overview of what you’ll hear I set out to give you a really clear insight into what it would be like choosing this clinic for your treatment.
You will be hearing from Dr Mike Macnamee, Chief Executive, Martyn Blayney, Head of Science and Tanya Turner, Patient Services Manager. IVF pioneers Patrick Steptoe and Bob Edwards established the world’s first IVF clinic at Bourn Hall to provide a calm and supportive environment where patients receive the best possible treatment and care.
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.
