The Whittington Hospital infertility service provides advice, investigation, treatment and counselling for those suffering with fertility problems.
Our clinic sees and advises women and their partners experiencing difficulties conceiving a child and has a dedicated team to complete their necessary fertility tests.
Our team consists of three consultant gynaecologists specialising in infertility and reproductive medicine, a consultant andrologist who specialises in male infertility, three fertility nurse specialists and a fertility counsellor. The fertility nurse specialists consult and advise couples on sub-fertility ensuring any necessary tests are carried out promptly and efficiently. Their aim is to guide you through your investigations and help you through an often difficult journey.
The fertility service includes:
The psychology service works with women and their partners to help them manage any stress and/or distress linked to their fertility difficulties. Individual, couple and/or group work is offered using Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy, Systemic Psychotherapy and Mindfulness-Based approaches. Primarily the work focuses upon exploring the impact of fertility difficulties and developing more helpful ways of coping with this challenging period of life.
