The Fertility Show opens THIS weekend and we just can’t wait. Returning for its 12th year, the Show will take place on 7th – 8th May at London Olympia.
We asked the wonderful Sophie Sulehria from the team at The Fertility Show, what’s different from this Show to previous years? Here’s what she said…
Aside from the fact I am on the team for this one (need I go on??), there are so many things we are proud of. Here are just a few…
THE ONLINE ELEMENTFor the first time ever, you can watch our seminars all over again online. In what we’re calling our ‘hybrid’ element of the Show, your ticket will give you access to our online platform after the event.
So, if you weren’t able to digest all the fantastic information while you were there, or you missed something, you can catch up later. And it’s all part of your ticket price!
THE Q&A SEMINARSI am so excited that, this year, instead of the seminars being led by the experts with power point presentations, all three seminar rooms will be manned by a host. This host will have a conversation with the expert, asking them five important questions, and will then conduct a Q&A with audience questions too. It’s going to be focused, fresh and easy to follow.Plus, there’s another reason I am so excited about this… I’m one of the hosts! I am officially manning Seminar Room 3, so do come and see me! Myself and my two other colleagues are ready to say hello and this is where the hybrid element of the show is really going to make a difference. We have such great content that I know it’s going to be a struggle to choose which seminars to attend.
Fear not, you can watch any you missed later! I have no doubt you’ll want to because the experts and the content are going to be exceptional – you honestly won’t get this level of knowledge in one place, at one time, anywhere else. Do go check out the timetable to see what the seminars have to offer HERE [LINK TO https://www.fertilityshow.co.uk/london/seminars]
THE LET’S ALL TALK HUBFor want of a better analogy, this is my baby! After taking over the running of The Fertility Show’s social media accounts, I was overwhelmed by the amazing people I met behind those squares, within our community. People who have lived, or are living through, their own infertility experiences and have used it to help others. We therefore wanted to invite these wonderful patients / advocates / ambassadors to The Fertility Show this year, to hear their experiences and gain access to their advice and support. Its advice that you won’t necessarily hear from a doctor. I am talking about the sort of peer to peer support that only a patient can share.I can’t wait to grab a coffee with these guys, and hear about all the incredible things they have to offer. So come and meet them all with me. Click here for more info.
And if you need other reasons to come to this year’s Fertility Show, here are three more…
FACE TO FACE CONTACT
Human connection, support and understanding go a long way when dealing with a fertility issue. Plus, choosing the right clinic and clinician is imperative, and a lot of that decision comes down to trust – something that can really only ever be judged by rapport, eye contact and dynamics – very hard to completely gauge over a computer screen. So it’s just as well we have all the top experts in their field under one roof!
If you get to a point in your fertility journey where donor conception becomes an option, we have a host of wonderful clinics, both in the UK and overseas, ready to help you. We also understand this is an emotionally difficult process, so we are delighted The Donor Conception Network will be on hand to discuss what donor conception means both physically and psychologically. They will also take to the stage, to give a full introduction and overview to egg and sperm donation, to help you understand further what your future may look and feel like if you decide to choose an egg or a sperm donor for your fertility treatment.
To discuss egg donation here in the UK we have The Lister Fertility Clinic, who are taking a lead in this area across the UK and opening of their own egg bank very shortly – watch this space!
Or if you’d prefer to take your treatment abroad, then both IVF Spain and Newlife Greece will be talking to you about what that option would look like. As is the case in all our seminars, the speakers will take their time to answer audience questions.
LOW OVARIAN RESERVE AND SECONDARY INFERTILITY
The Fertility Show is not just for first children, but for those struggling for a second, or who are considered a little older. There is a lot you can do in these situations, and our experts will be there to help with your options. We are delighted that Clinic Tambre in Spain will be there, discussing premature & low ovarian reserve and how to treat it. Plus IVF Mitera in Greece will be giving options for older women or those struggling with secondary infertility. Two fantastic clinics with a lot of knowledge.
