IVF: a journey of hope

IVF is a journey I’m passionate about because of its impressive success in overcoming infertility. It’s a finely-tuned process, spanning roughly three weeks. During an IVF cycle, I administer follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) injections to boost your chances of producing viable eggs. These eggs are then carefully harvested and fertilised with sperm in a meticulously controlled lab setting.

In the days that follow, your embryos are under my vigilant care. I choose the strongest candidates for transfer to your womb, and should there be additional embryos, I can freeze them for future use.

What causes infertility

Infertility doesn’t discriminate, affecting both men and women almost equally. About 40% of cases are due to male factors, another 40% are female issues, and the remaining 20% are unidentified. Male infertility is complex, with low sperm count or function being the most common causes. Damage to the vas deferens from past surgeries or infections can disrupt the sperm’s journey. Sometimes, the solution may lie in artificial insemination through IVF. Whatever the cause, my diagnostic evaluations are thorough, providing you with bespoke insights, and guiding you to informed decisions about your treatment options.

Ovulation disorders: help is at hand

Happily, hope shines brightly for ovulation disorders, with numerous treatments available. Ovulation induction, for example, uses medications to prompt egg development and release, propelling you forward on your fertility path with a renewed sense of possibility.

“Fertility is so inspiring and exciting. It has a little bit of everything: deadlines, all walks of life; and I get to work with couples, which other specialists don’t — I love that.”

Female fertility assessments

In your journey towards parenthood, knowledge is power, and I’m here to empower you every step of the way.

Fertility assessments are your gateway to understanding your reproductive health, empowering you to make informed decisions.

Here’s how I can help:

In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF):

Here’s where the magic of science meets the miracle of life. I extract eggs from your ovaries and bring them together with sperm in a lab setting. The embryos we create are the seeds of potential life, carefully nurtured before being transferred into the uterus.

Donor Egg IVF:

There’s immense generosity in using donor eggs, which I fertilise with either the intended father’s sperm or a donor’s. I then place these embryos into the uterus of the future mother or a gestational carrier, paving the path to a family.

Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis & Screening (PGD & PGS):

With precision and foresight, I employ PGD and PGS to assess embryos for genetic health, selecting the best for a future free of inherited genetic conditions.

Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI):

When sperm face challenges, ICSI is a powerful tool. I inject a single sperm into an egg, overcoming obstacles that may have previously seemed insurmountable.

Donor Sperm Insemination:

In instances where the male partner’s sperm may not be an option, I turn to donor sperm insemination. This adaptable approach can be integrated with IUI or IVF to chart a course towards parenthood.


I am deeply moved every time I facilitate the surrogacy journey. Together, we create an embryo with either your own genetic material or a donor’s, which I then transfer to a gestational carrier, expanding the ways a family can grow.

Egg Freezing:

As a preserver of future hope, I can freeze your eggs at the peak of their potential, so that your dreams of a family can be pursued now — or preserved for when the time is right.

Assisted Hatching:

I help your embryos implant by making their ‘shell’ easier to emerge from. This subtle, but powerful intervention can significantly enhance the implantation process.

Ovulation Induction:

If natural ovulation proves elusive, I stimulate the ovaries with fertility drugs, carefully timing the release of eggs for optimal fertility outcomes.

Gonadotropin-Releasing Hormone (GnRH) Analogue Therapy:

With this strategy, I help you orchestrate the timing of your ovulation, synchronising your cycle with precision.
