Attend virtual patient information evenings and tours
The best way to learn about a fertility clinic and fertility treatments is to attend an information evening. These are still happening, just virtually. These information evenings allow you the opportunity to meet clinic staff, tour the facilities, as well as learn about specific treatments. There is always the opportunity to ask questions as well, so there is no need to feel alone. Each of our TFP fertility clinics offers these on a regular basis, so why not sign up to your local clinics?
Taking just one of the steps above will help you to start your fertility journey and help you on your journey to becoming a parent.
