“Nowhere compares to The Lister Fertility Clinic!”
Mrs Amy Olson gave birth to her daughter on 17 February 2014 as a result of her successful IVF cycle.
“The doctors at The Lister Fertility Clinic are experts in their field and I trusted them implicitly, which is not what I experienced at other fertility clinics. I spoke to several happy patients via online fertility forums and everyone spoke so highly of The Lister Fertility Clinic. Then when I popped in for an initial chat I was very impressed by all the staff I spoke with: it was my first-choice clinic by a mile. I had known for a long time that I would need fertility treatment to conceive. I have severe PCOS and stopped ovulating naturally about ten years ago. My first daughter was conceived thanks to ovulation stimulation (Clomid) at my local NHS hospital.
When my husband and I started discussing the possibility of having another child, I underwent ovulation stimulation as a private patient at an NHS fertility clinic, assuming that Clomid would again be sufficient. We managed to fall pregnant quickly but sadly experienced a pregnancy loss at about nine weeks. After that, we had several unsuccessful attempts with Clomid. It was at this point I started researching clinics with a view to trying IVF.
I was beginning to feel pretty desperate and low, especially after my pregnancy loss, but as soon as I became a patient at The Lister Fertility Clinic I felt very positive about my chances of achieving another pregnancy. And I was fortunate enough to fall pregnant on my first, and only, cycle of IVF!
From my very first consultation to the final scan and blood test I received nothing but the best, attentive care from every member of staff I came into contact with.
Although it was a very stressful time, especially so because my PCOS required extra monitoring, I felt that I was in the best hands.The support was also very much in place, not just from a clinical point of view, but a psychological one: counselling was readily accessible, and although the clinic was very busy, someone was always available when I needed them. In addition to this, the doctors, nurses and embryologists were on hand at all times via phone and email. This, for me, was invaluable.”
