1. Use this time to make sure your body is ready for treatment and pregnancy
Make sure you're maintaining a healthy weight, getting regular exercise and following a balanced diet. While it may be difficult during this time, trying to stay relaxed and giving up vices such as smoking will all help to optimise your fertility status. You should also be taking folic acid with vitamin D. For more information of lifestyle changes you can make to optimise your fertility click here.
2. Do your research
We have lots of information on our website as well as useful blogs, and stories from previous patients. I also host weekly webinars and Q&A sessions where you can find out more about our services, as well as ask me any of your IVF questions. Register for my next webinar here.
3. Begin your journey now with our Virtual Initial Consultation
We are conducting virtual consultations where you can discuss your fertility with a highly experienced fertility nurse who will put together your tailored treatment plan for you. Find out more about our virtual consultations here.
