Wimbledon Open Evenings
Clinic open evenings postponed
The safety and well-being of both our patients and staff is our main priority, and based on the latest Government and Public Health England guidelines around social gatherings, we have made the decision to cancel our current diary of open evenings. We apologise for any inconvenience caused but we're sure you can appreciate and understand this decision.
However, we still want to share with you the benefits of treatment with CREATE Fertility and our approach to Mild and Natural IVF, so we have organised weekly webinars hosted by our Founder and Medical Director, Professor Nargund. These will take place at 6pm on Tuesdays, and will allow you to learn about CREATE Fertility and ask any questions from the comfort of your home.
Why join our webinar?
Our webinars are designed to give you all the information you need, that's why they're always led by a fertility consultant. You'll learn more about:
- Our Natural, Safe and Ethical approach to fertility treatment
- Why Mild & Natural IVF should be your first choice
- The different types of fertility services we offer
- What your treatment journey with us looks like
- Our success rates
- What happens at an Initial Consultation
- Your next steps
After the event you will have the opportunity to book your virtual consultation with one of our experienced fertility consultants to discuss your individual circumstances and how we can help you.
