4 cycles of IVF
"Without The Lister Fertility Clinic we would not have our precious little girl"
“We started trying for a baby back in 2009. Living in Lancashire, we had been referred to a clinic in Liverpool to commence IVF; I had been trying to conceive for 12 months without success and was initially started on Clomid by an NHS consultant. It had become clear that I was ovulating irregularly as my cycles were very long and erratic but Clomid was unsuccessful and after another year of trying to conceive, we commenced IVF. I didn’t establish a clear reason as to why I was failing to become pregnant. I found it frustrating that we were treated in a generic manner which lacked the personal touch. I embarked on two rounds of IVF in Liverpool which both came to nothing.
It was at this point that we decided to change direction, quite literally; we chose to travel from Lancashire to London to begin treatment at The Lister Fertility Clinic. After carrying out some online research we read great reviews and discovered the Clinic’s impressive success rates. Travelling down from Lancashire we opted to make the most of the Chelsea location by exploring the local area. Our initial consultation was with Dr Wren who put us at ease and implemented a plan of treatment. And so I began my first cycle of IVF at the Lister. Unfortunately this cycle failed but we would never have given up: we had the mindset that we would do whatever it would take to have a baby. We forged on with our second cycle, which resulted in pregnancy and the birth of our beautiful daughter.
Our time at The Lister Fertility Clinic was a very positive one, not only because our treatment was successful but because we both felt very much supported on our journey, and it was reassuring that we saw the same faces with each appointment, from the lovely sonographer Liz to all the nurses who were wonderful with us. I also felt at the Lister we were treated as individuals with an independent treatment plan, which was infinitely preferable to the anonymity of the previous clinic. I would recommend The Lister Fertility Clinic to anyone who is on a fertility journey as without them we would not have our very precious little girl. We can’t thank you all enough.”
