IVF Support Buddy

IVF Buddy Logo




At RHG we recognise that emotional support can be as important as clinical support during fertility treatment and we are committed to ensuring that we offer our patients as much reassurance as possible.

Our IVF Buddy scheme allows you to connect with our former patients who have first hand experience of undergoing treatment with us. For anyone who feels they would like any additional advice and support from a patient’s perspective before beginning, or during, fertility treatment, you can submit your queries and our patient services team will connect you.

Our clinical team provide all medical advice and our patient services team look after all logistical aspects of your care but our IVF Buddy offers an opportunity to share any concerns or questions with someone who may have been through similar experiences.

Peer to peer support of this kind can be extremely beneficial at what is undoubtedly a daunting time, helping you to feel less alone and providing support and encouragement as you embark on your journey.

IVF Buddy

My name is Katie, I am a former patient of RHG. My IVF journey with the clinic began in 2018 which resulted in me having my amazing daughter Lilah who is now 14 months old.

Myself and my partner embarked on having ‘ICSI’ after numerous test results showed this was the best way forward for us to achieve a pregnancy.

Our experience during our IVF journey was not just about feeling worried and stressed but it was also exciting, happy and fascinating. We never had to wait long periods of time for appointments with the clinic nor did we feel pressured to go ahead unless we were certain. We always felt at ease when visiting the clinic and found that our needs were always catered to.

Throughout my time as a patient I felt a whirlwind of emotions, but I always received the reassurance and support needed. I felt confident and positive that the team at RHG were striving to help me achieve my goal.
