Thank you for the feedback about the new website.  The re-design is proving very popular with more unique visitors who are staying on the site for longer – the ‘most visited’ pages being the Forum, treatment costs and success rates.  But also in the top 5 is the staff profiles page . . it seems that knowing who is part of the MFS team is as important to many potential patients as the costs and success rates of treatment.

More staff news is included in this edition, as well as the latest news from MFS and details of events connected in many ways to fertility, whether you’re a patient or healthcare professional.

In this edition, Made in Aldridge also features some extremely happy staff news, with the story of Beth Elton’s own ‘fertility journey’, and how she combined the roles of MFS clinical midwife and fertility patient for a year while she and her husband Thomas received ICSI treatment – and eventually became the parents they had dreamed of being.

Today’s the Day celebrates the summer birthdays and the first day of school of five MFS babies.  But with the first days of autumn upon us, we’re already looking ahead to the next e-news in December and welcome your Christmas dedications before then.  For this, or if you would like to mark a milestone or other achievement in the life of your MFS baby, complete the Today’s the Day form.

The next newsletter will be out in December 2009 and if you don’t yet subscribe, complete the form to make sure it pops into your inbox on the day it’s issued.

We hope you enjoy the enewsletter and the new-style website and welcome your feedback.  And if you’ve found it a good read, why not tell a friend?
