At the Shropshire and Mid Wales Fertility Centre we pride ourselves on having caring, empathetic staff who understand how you could be feeling and are well placed to offer support if necessary. There are many ways you can access emotional support during your fertility journey.
Shropshire and Mid Wales Fertility Centre are working together with national charity Fertility Network UK to launch a new patient-led support group. This will be held on the third Wednesday of every month, starting on 17th April 2019. It will be held in the Fertility Centre from 6.30-8.30pm (see flyer on link below for more information). As a clinic we will provide expert speakers at the meetings covering the topics you request, but as a patient led group other sessions are independent of our staff. This group is open to all affected by fertility issues, you do not have to be a patient registered with us and you are assured a warm welcome.
We employ a qualified counsellor who specialises in fertility counselling and her appointments are open to both NHS and private patients. NHS patients can be referred to the counsellor by their clinician/nurse. There is currently a charge of £44 per session for Private patients. Please call the unit on 01743 261199 to book an appointment.
We also run a monthly open evening where people have the opportunity to call in and have a short, private discussion with a fertility expert. These are held on the first Wednesday of every month, starting on 3rd April 2019.
