Free fertility and IVF open days at our world-class central London fertility clinic. See our upcoming events:
Purpose built to deliver the best experience for patients, our St. Paul’s clinic is a Centre of Excellence for Natural and Mild IVF treatments.
If you would like to find out more about Natural and Mild IVF and the benefits this provides for the health of mother and baby, we offer free open days and evenings at our St. Paul’s clinic in central London.
Usually our Medical Director and Founder Professor Geeta Nargund runs these events so it’s a great opportunity to meet with her during your mini-consultations and find out more about the service we provide. If Professor Nargund is unavailable Professor Campbell, or one of our lead consultants, will run the session.
Tickets are free but numbers are limited to enable us to give you the best possible attention, so please book to reserve your place through the reservation system below.
If there isn’t an event at a convenient time for you please contact us to arrange an initial consultation.
A sample agenda for an open day is as follows:
On open evenings we only offer 10 couples the opportunity to have a personal 10-minute one-on-one chat with one of the Professors or Lead Consultants. These will be offered one a 'first-come first-served' basis so please ask when you arrive if you are interested.
Our next open day/evening in St. Paul’s is:
This testimonial is long overdue. A healthy bundle of joy keeps you very busy! I cannot thank Prof Nargund enough for giving me the chance of having a baby with my own eggs.
With an AMH of 0.44, no other clinic would have considered this. What horrid thoughts of my baby girl not being here and how empty life was before her. However, with the friendly approach and clinical skills of the doctors, nurses and embryologists, the third natural modified cycle achieved two good quality eggs from my three remaining follicles, both fertilised and were put "back where they belong" with me. I'll never forget those words the doctor said during the embryo transfer. After 14 years of a strong desire to have a baby, with no partner in sight, it felt completely natural to have two tiny embryos inside me. How important it is for the woman and child that women with critically low ovarian reserve are given a chance to use their own eggs by Create, especially when there is already a need for a sperm donor. All the staff at Create Health strike the tricky balance of being professional, yet approachable and relaxed and also what we patients have to learn - the balance between being realistic but positive. We have also had some laughs along the way. I will never forget the tiny being that didn't grow, but for the sake of my daughter, I will be visiting Create again soon to try for a sibling for her. I'm not phased by doing IVF Create's way, the more natural way again - knowing many friends who haven't shared such positive experiences with their clinic, there's no greater recommendation than that!'
Jennifer’s story: successful treatment after OHSS at another clinic
One of the main reasons that CREATE specialises in natural and mild treatment is that the high stimulation given in conventional IVF treatment can lead to significant side effects. Here one of our patients Jennifer tells her story:
‘I turned to CREATE following some horrible experiences at another clinic. After struggling to conceive for a while, my husband Daniel and I first sought treatment at a leading fertility clinic around 4 years ago. We had two full rounds of treatment with them as well as 2 frozen rounds with some of the embryos that we had frozen. During the first round of treatment, lots of eggs were collected, but the high doses of stimulation meant that I developed severe Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome (OHSS). This is a medical condition resulting from over-stimulation of the ovaries which causes the ovaries to enlarge, retention of fluid which can cause severe abdominal discomfort and, in my case, a drain. The OHSS meant that I suffered discomfort throughout my first round of treatment. This first attempt worked and I became pregnant, but sadly miscarried quite late on.
My husband and I had been trying to have children for 18 months. When nothing had happened, I went to my GP and was advised to keep trying naturally for a while longer. We did but still nothing happened. I had some basic tests and we were quite quickly put into the category of ‘unexplained infertility.’ That was the moment when we realised we had an issue.
I went to CREATE and further tests showed I had polycystic ovaries. I wasn’t surprised because my sister has it and I had some of the associated symptoms. However, because the scans through the GP hadn’t discovered it, I thought it had been ruled out. So when CREATE identified the issue very clearly we had an explanation for our problems. Further scans also showed that I had issues with the blood circulation around my uterus.
CREATE Fertility completely took the stress out of IVF and made the experience a joyful one rather than like the "hell" which I experienced at other IVF clinics, prior to coming to you. The other clinics I went to were selling me far too many expensive drugs that all did the same thing. Having too many unnecessary drugs did not benefit me and I suspect might have caused me to have a missed miscarriage by interfering with my egg quality.
At CREATE, the drug content is kept to the most minimal levels possible. The clinic is completely genuine, honest and does not take advantage of people. Other clinics make you want to give up on IVF, but not at CREATE Fertility. The clinic is superb, the professionalism and advise is faultless and staff exceptionally friendly (especially Maria Mattia). I have been thoroughly recommending you to everyone and cannot sing your praises enough. You are the only IVF clinic I would recommend.
I am delighted to announce that with the fantastic assistance of CREATE, two of the most beautiful little treasures were born on 4th December. Our son Xavier weighed 5lbs 13oz and our little girl Rennie was born at 5lb 1oz. There were no complications with the pregnancy or birth, and both babies are absolutely perfect and thriving very well. They join their older sister Imogen who was also born through IVF with the help of Dr Melina Stasinou.
We would like to express our deepest gratitude to all at CREATE Fertility for making our dreams become a reality. The overwhelming feeling of love and happiness is mighty, words cannot describe how thankful we are. God bless.
Dear CREATE Fertility Professors & Team,
After 3 unsuccessful NHS IVF treatments due to unexplained infertility (2 long and 1 short protocol) my first treatment with CREATE Fertility was a surprising success.
Thank you all so much for the mild and less intensive approach which my body seemed to appreciate. You were all compassionate and informative throughout the process which made the whole experience less stressful both emotionally and physically.
I really couldn’t believe it when I had a positive result and even after the 4 week scan I was still sceptical that the pregnancy (my first ever after 4 years of trying) would be fruitful. However, 40 weeks and 3 days later on 6 February 2014 our little girl was born and she is such a cutie.
With kind regards and best wishes.
Call backs are only made during our opening hours of 9am-5pm Mon-Fri.
