“IVF treatment is a unique experience, which is why we will always ensure that the treatments our patients go through are suited to their individual, personal, and medical circumstances. We strive to ensure that every one of our patients feels calm, comfortable and confident in our care, no matter what treatment we are carrying out with them.” – Kathryn Berrisford
