Our free to watch fertility webinar on 31/03/2020, hosted by Professor Luciano Nardo covered a range of topics, from fertility assessments and treatments, to how we work at RHG. Viewers also heard from former patients who spoke about what it’s really like to go through treatment at RHG.

This weeks ‘Patients For Patients’ event was a great success, with 30 attendees, four families of previous patients and three beautiful bundles of joy bringing a bit of cuteness to our informal evening.

This ‘Patients For Patients’ evening was an opportunity for attendees to relax, ask questions both to previous patients and Professor Luciano Nardo and also gain some information on IVF and other treatments offered by our specialists.

Here’s a rundown of how the evening went:

With the murmurs of three tiny ones in the room, laboratory director Karen Schnauffer opened the event, introducing the clinic, discussing the IVF process, state of the art facilities and the services offered to both men and women at Reproductive Health Group, whilst answering questions that some of the attendees had.

 

Our previous patients were then asked if they were happy to discuss their experiences of treatment with us. Lee and Naomi, with their beautiful seven week old Nina, discussed their journey with Reproductive Health Group, going into detail about the cutting edge tests they were given which were not offered on the NHS. 

Lee spoke about their journey, commenting “Sometimes it’s better knowing the problem even if it’s scary, then you can approach it and put a plan in place. The consultations here were so relaxed and worked around our free time. We didn’t have to wait long for anything, the team at Reproductive Health Group and Dr Luciano took out the frustration during an emotional process. A process, that without, we wouldn’t have our Nina.”

Following this Natalie Silverman of the Fertility Podcast and Freedom Fertility Specialist Claire Caldow spoke,  discussing the outlets and coping strategies that they offer whilst also discussing their own fertility struggles and IVF journeys. Both talks were insightful and brought to light that others who have been through this journey are willing to talk about it and help you at any point along the way.

Luciano then offered a Q&A session, answering questions previously sent into him and others brought up during the evening’s talk. At this point, Louise and Adriano, who had their daughter Indiana just 19 days ago, spoke up about their experience with RHG.

Louise commented “I must say thank you to Luciano, Karen and all the team. We had such a massive level of care here. Everything was done timely, unlike we’d found with the NHS and all the team were so friendly. We’re so lucky to have come to RHG and now have Indiana.”

Following that, Ben and Hannah, who had with them their four-week-old baby boy Theodore, discussed their IVF journey with us.

Hannah spoke saying “We were recommended Reproductive Health Group by someone I worked with. We’d been trying for two and a half years with no luck, so we contacted Luciano and the team. Luciano was great and we were in to see him straight away, no waiting time, which was a lot quicker than we’d had before. 

“We could straight away tell Luciano really cared. He ran some tests on us both and quickly found out what was stopping us from being successful. We started getting treatment and medication for it, the team were always on hand about any questions I had, whatever time in the day or evening it was. We had our first cycle of IVF and it worked! We’ve now got our boy Theodore and we’re so happy with him. The only thing is, we wish we could’ve given birth here – it would’ve been a lot more relaxing than with the NHS, but at the end of the day we got Theodore.”

 

After those inspiring stories, Luciano thanked not only the attendees and previous patients but the amazing team at RHG including the hardworking members of the team behind running these events.

 

Tuesday was a great event and everyone at RHG enjoyed meeting not only the attendees but also the babies brought into this world with the help of our whole team. 

We’re so thankful to be able to run events like this, so if you’re interested in attending our next event or would like to speak to a member of our team, get in touch today!

December might be the month of last minute Christmas shopping and decorating the tree, but it’s also a month to forward plan for the new year, which is exactly why we held our first December patient to patient event.

This year, unlike the previous five years, our relaxed and informative patient to patient event took place the evening of Wednesday, December 11th at our head office at Daresbury Park and proved to be a success for all who attended.

   

The event offered the perfect opportunity for people to meet with previous patients of Reproductive Health Group. It gave attendees the chance to ask their burning questions that only people who have gone through the IVF process and experience with us could answer.

With seven previous patients and 25 attendees, the event had a relaxed atmosphere, full with chatter and advice being offered, which is exactly what we wanted to achieve! 

The event also provided the opportunity for attendees to meet with our renowned Clinical Director, Luciano Nardo. With over 20 years of experience in the fertility world, he was able to answer questions attendees had and offer them a tour of our on site world class facilities.

The event also gave attendees and staff the chance to meet a few of the beautiful babies born with Reproductive Health Groups helping hand.

Attendee Rachel Harrison commented: “It has been great to get information from the staff, but also find out about the different experiences of people who had been in the position we are now.

“It has been so chilled and relaxed with no added pressure that we’re going to go away and discuss things and come back in the new year, ready!”

 

If you weren’t able to attend our patient to patient event this time, we will be holding more in the new year.

Keep your eyes peeled for information on our up and coming events, or if you’d prefer, why not contact one of our team members for more information.
