Welcoe to Midland Fertility
It’s a new-look website and new branding for the Midlands’ longest established independent fertility clinic, which continues to provide fertility treatment for both private and NHS patients and is dedicated to ‘building futures, transforming lives’.
In more than 27 years, Midland Fertility has achieved many ‘firsts‘ in the Midlands, the UK and the world, and, since it opened in 1987, nearly 6,000 babies have been born after treatment at the clinic in Aldridge, near Walsall.
And from 15 September 2014, Midland Fertility will be open for business at its new ‘super-clinic’ in Tamworth. Read Our Blog for more information on the planned move – but be reassured that patients’ treatment will transfer seamlessly to the new site.
In vitro fertilisation (IVF) literally means fertilisation ‘in glass’. Instead of the sperm fertilising the egg within the body (in vivo), fertilisation takes place in a sterile dish (in vitro) in a laboratory. IVF has been available in the UK since 1978 and since then, more than two million babies have been born worldwide following IVF treatment.
Midland Fertility offers a range of services for men and women who wish to ‘preserve’ their fertility by freezing and storing sperm, eggs or embryos for possible future use.
Midland Fertility has an open door policy and offers advice and fertility treatment options single women, lesbian women and gay men who want to preserve their fertility or to start a family.
Recent advances in understanding the causes for recurrent miscarriages enable Midland Fertility to offer advanced treatment options and support for patients to improve the outcome of pregnancies.
Midland Fertility offers pregnancy scanning for all pregnant women following fertility treatment or after natural conception
Midland Fertility is open seven days a week, 51 weeks of the year to offer patients the best possible care and service. An on-call service provides urgent clinical advice out of hours, the telephone counselling advice line is available to patients 365 days a year and the Midland Fertility Forum – a free, on-line community of potential, current and former patients – offers peer support, 24/7.
Short notice appointments are sometimes available for initial consultations. For people who are trying to conceive, or who have experienced recurrent miscarriage, or who want pregnancy scanning from eight to 32 weeks, please contact us to make an appointment.
Good luck, and remember that a warm welcome awaits you at Midland Fertility.
