Decided to start your family through IVF this year? Although it’s hugely exciting, planning and preparing for IVF can be daunting.

Not only are there the financial considerations, but also the major decision about which fertility clinic to choose, which may influence your chances of success and likelihood of a baby.

So if you’re hoping to have IVF this year, here are the three key things that really matter:

1. IVF expertise

Experience and expertise counts when it comes to successful IVF. People can need IVF for all sorts of reasons – no two cases are exactly the same. What matters is the experience of the clinic and consultant team in understanding and treating cases like yours.

At Manchester Fertility our consultant team is made of fertility specialists who are leaders in their field, each with their own specialisms from male infertility to Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and recurrent miscarriage.

What this means for you is that we share our collective expertise to find the best solution. At Manchester Fertility it’s not just one consultant who helps you have a baby but a team of experts, bringing together their skills to create your personal treatment plan that’s focused on achieving successful IVF pregnancy and birth.

This individualised, bespoke approach is why we’re one of the most reputed names in fertility treatment and care in the UK, with over 30 years of helping people in all circumstances have a family.

2. Your own existing health

We’ll do everything we can to make IVF successful but it does rely on both of you too. Your own health and that of your partner can influence your chances of pregnancy. Obesity, smoking, excessive alcohol or being underweight can negatively impact fertility – which means poorer eggs and sperm for your cycle.

It’s why there are BMI limits in place for IVF at Manchester Fertility, and why we don’t accept women who smoke as egg donors.

We won’t let you start IVF if your health means it’s unlikely to be successful. We’ll give you support with the help of our IVF and fertility nutritionist if needs be, so you can get yourself in the best health possible before your treatment starts. 

3. Clinic operations and approach

Many people say they get a ‘feel’ for the right IVF clinic for them as soon as they walk in and at Manchester Fertility we’re proud to be known for our friendly, personal yet professional approach to your care.

Everything we do is delivered to the highest standards, with a ‘patients-first’ positive approach focused on ‘when’ and not ‘if’ you have a baby.

Although we’re at the forefront of innovative fertility care and treatment, through advanced techniques such as time-lapse embryo selection, preimplantation genetic screening and endometrial genetic testing, we don’t offer any treatment unless we believe it’s of benefit for the vast majority of our patients.

Our approach doesn’t just influence how you’ll have your baby but also how you fund your treatment. We were the very first clinic in the UK to offer IVF with a refund and discounted treatment plans, to help alleviate the financial risk and stress of private IVF.
