What to do if you’re not happy with your fertility clinic or doctor?

 

Some fertility clinics and doctors are fantastic – so caring, you feel listened to and you couldn’t fault their treatment.

Unfortunately, not all of them are. This week for the umpteenth time, I listened to a client telling me she feels like she’s just a number at her fertility clinic and I decided to podcast some ideas of what you can do about it and importantly to give yourself the permission to do something about it.

Is your fertility clinic or doctor providing personalised care?

It’s such an emotional experience every time you visit your RE / FS/doctor or fertility clinic. Often you’ve been building up to appointments and treatments for weeks or even months. When you feel like the doctor is not really listening, like you’re just one of many couples on their treadmill and importantly you don’t feel ‘connected’ – it’s time for a change.

It’s hard to change, it’s scary, but so important.

This is too important an issue to stay and stay silent.

So what can you do about it? In episode 14, we talk through how to approach it and what to do if you want to change doctors or fertility clinics.

The main takeaway is that you deserve the best! Your goal of becoming parents is too important to be getting second best and hopefully, if you’re in this situation, this podcast gives you the motivation to make a change.
