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:
Tracy aged 38, was told by another clinic that she would never have her own children. She was turned away from several fertility clinics because her FSH was very high and egg reserve was very low. She had been told her this meant she was approaching the menopause and wouldn’t be able to have a child with her own egg and donor eggs would be her only option. They weren’t ready to accept this and were absolutely devastated. Not only did she have very low egg reserve, but her husband suffered from infertility and no sperm as a result of carrying the Cystic Fibrosis gene. Despite this difficulty, she conceived with natural IVF/ICSI using her own egg and her husband’s testicular sperm. She became pregnant and had a daughter. She returned for further treatment 2 years later against all odds and conceived again with natural IVF/ICSI and had a son. She is convinced that staying away from fertility drugs helped her to have two children with Natural IVF/ICSI.
Harriet, 34 years old had PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome). She had tried conventional IVF elsewhere, got severe OHSS (Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome) and nearly died in intensive care unit. She was warned that further conventional IVF treatment would put her at risk again. She had given up hope of having her own baby. Two years later she was told about Natural Cycle IVF/IVM and came to us. Last year we successfully transferred one embryo following IVM with no drugs and now she is eight months pregnant! She believes that Natural IVF/IVM should be used widely to avoid risks of OHSS and other health risks to women with conventional, drug stimulated IVF.
My husband and I went for our initial consultation towards the end of last year. We had a history of two ICSIs without fresh transfer, and 3 frozen transfers, only one of which led to a clinical pregnancy followed by a miscarriage at 9 weeks.
We started our first Mild IVF cycle at St. Paul’s in the beginning of February and we have just had a fresh embryo transfer, so we do not yet know the outcome of this cycle. However, we wanted to pause and say thank you at this stage for designing an excellent protocol for us, and to express our appreciation of the whole clinical and nursing team. Our experience with all of the clinical staff has been excellent.
IVF is a horrible process but your team and the protocol you designed really worked for me. I had 10 mature eggs after 9 days of mild stimulation with 5 good embryos by day 5. I think you can see this as a real success for your mild strategy, and your focus on quality not quantity. My previous best cycle had about 18 mature eggs but that only led to about the same number of day 5 embryos, and that involved a freeze-all protocol to deal with the OHSS risk and nearly 8 months from start to finish for a single transfer.
Now we have all our fingers and toes crossed for a positive pregnancy test.
I’ve wanted children for as long as I can remember but unfortunately have never had much luck in relationships. I talked with my friends about doing it alone and gave myself a deadline of 35 years old. A friend of a friend said they could put me in touch with someone who’d had a child on their own. Meeting someone who had done it made a huge difference for me.
Claudia, 35, already had a child after aggressive, conventional IVF, and wanted another. However, because she had blocked tubes, she needed IVF. She was exhausted after her conventional IVF and said “never again”! It had been very aggressive IVF, had cost her nearly £9000 and she had lots of unpleasant side effects. She had never even heard of Natural Cycle IVF before coming to us; so two ultrasound scans, one follicle, no drugs and £2,000 resulting in another baby made her very happy!
Call backs are only made during our opening hours of 9am-5pm Mon-Fri.
