What is the Familymakers Fair?

Society continues to change, and it is important that we keep up with the ever-evolving structure of families. At London Women’s Clinic, London Sperm Bank and London Egg Bank, we are coming together at the Familymakers Fair to explain what fertility options are available for all those who we welcome through our doors.

Our London Bridge Clinic will host our partners who have been Familymakers since 1985 and together, we will share our fertility expertise. Regardless of where you are in you fertility journey, or where you are from, we’re here to help.

Event Programme

We will be opening our doors from 10am so you can explore our clinic, meet our staff and find out how we achieve our industry leading results. We will be bringing together our experts from Bristol to Harley Street to present on a range of topics specifically curated for heterosexual couples such as fertility testing, importance of nutrition and wellbeing, surrogacy and fertility treatments from IVF to IUI.

Entering the realm of fertility treatment can be daunting, but London Women’s Clinic are here for you, providing all the information you need to maximise your chances of success. A clear step-by-step presentation explaining the relatively simpler IUI and the more complicated IVF and ICSI as well as a safe space to ask your questions, ensures that you will come away with all the information to pave your way to parenthood.

During fertility treatment, your mind and body go through a wide range of changes. In this talk, you’ll hear from a panel of experts about why looking after your mental health during your fertility journey is so important, the role nutrition can play, and where to find the different support groups provided by London Women’s Clinic.
