Care and support
There is no doubt that undergoing fertility treatment can be a demanding and stressful experience both physically and emotionally.
There are organisations available to help and support you through what can be a difficult time. The Regional Fertility Centre has an independent fertility counselling service which is available free of charge for all our patients. This service is confidential and can be accessed before, during and after treatment. There is also access to a clinical psychology service either by consultant or self referral.
Research has shown that it is beneficial to prepare your body physically for the treatment that lies ahead. If you’ve been trying for a baby for a while, the chances are you’ll already have put some methods into action, such as maintaining a healthy weight, eating healthily, not smoking and taking plenty of exercise.
