As part of my Taking Control series I have interviewed the lovely Rachel Cutting, an embryologist and the Director of Compliance and Information for the HFEA, the UK’s independent regulator of fertility treatment and the first statutory body of this type in the world.
Rachel talks about how the HFEA can support you making decisions about which clinic to use, comparing success rates and understanding add ons.
The HFEA offers a lot of support and is responsible for setting policies and auditing all UK clinics to keep them safe and accountable.
You can access their information and support on the below website...https://www.hfea.gov.uk/
The taking control series has been developed to give you lots of ways you can start to feel more in control, whatever your journey looks like, and to highlight the different support available to you.

Mother’s day (along with every other special date) is often a really tough day when you are still desperately trying to have your longed for baby. This blog features some tips to help you get through Mother’s Day.
