Patient testimonials

CREATE Fertility’s vision is to promote an approach to fertility treatment which offers the best chance of success and reduces the emotional, physical and financial burden associated with IVF. We are the only clinic in the UK which specialises in drug-free (Natural Cycle IVF and IVM) and low drug approaches (Mild IVF) and it gives us immense satisfaction to have helped thousands of women and families in their fertility journey.

We are very proud of giving a chance to women in all circumstances and that we do not select patients based on criteria such as ovarian reserve. We are experts at dealing with complex and difficult fertility problems and we have helped many women who have been turned away from other IVF clinics.

Here is a selection of fertility treatment testimonials and case studies from our patients.

'This gentle and natural approach worked brilliantly for us.'

We have been very pleased with CREATE Fertility in Bristol and in St. Paul’s in London. We now have a beautiful and healthy one year old girl, thanks to the gentle approach advocated by CREATE Fertility.

'CREATE gave us hope!'

Having the high stimulation experience to compare against really makes me realise that CREATE is simply the best clinic.

'CREATE Fertility were definitely an eye opener.'

Both my husband and I felt that we had learned more in the 2 hours we were at CREATE, than in the 2 years that we’ve been having treatment elsewhere. We decided straight away that CREATE is the clinic for us.

'My whole journey was just so perfect.'

I cannot recommend CREATE Fertility enough, they made everyday an experience I will never forget. My whole journey was just so perfect. It worries me to think where or how i would be if I had gone to one of the more commercialised IVF clinics.

We got our first ever BFP in 6 years with our very first IVF cycle with Create! We will forever be grateful to the amazing team at Create Wilmslow for this result! Only wish we had transferred to them sooner!

'The way I was treated by the doctors and nurses at CREATE was just incredible'

I think if we’d continued at a clinic which offers high stimulation protocols, it wouldn’t have worked for us. It would not have been as relaxed and as easy as it was at CREATE. They were just incredible and we couldn’t ask for anything more.

'We were told that IVF wasn’t going to work for us; I now have an amazing little girl'

After hearing more about how natural and modified IVF can be more beneficial to older women we decided to give it a go....In February 2016 we finally got to meet our ‘one’ little ‘last chance’ egg that developed into this amazing little girl that we now have and adore – Pippa.

'We will definitely be coming back to CREATE!'

In January 2014, I started on Mild IVF treatment which worked within my cycle and involved 8-11 days of stimulating drugs. Our beautiful daughter Lila was born in October. My road through IVF was the most emotional experience of my life, but ultimately the most rewarding. We would love another child, and will definitely be coming back to CREATE!

'Thank you for designing an excellent protocol for us'

IVF is a horrible process but your team and the protocol you designed really worked for me. I had 10 mature eggs after 9 days of Mild Stimulation IVF with 5 good embryos by day 5. My previous best cycle (of high stimulation IVF) had about 18 mature eggs but that only led to about the same number of day 5 embryos, and that involved a freeze-all protocol to deal with the OHSS risk. I think you can see this as a real success for your mild strategy, and your focus on quality not quantity.

'I was very pleased with the treatment I received at CREATE'

A combination of three things attracted me to CREATE. The first one was their more natural and less invasive approach to IVF with reduced amount of drugs. Number two was the quality of their internationally renowned consultants, and number three was their treatment cost. Whilst success rates was also a factor of choice, it was not as important a criteria to me as I first anticipated when I found out the reported figures were often reflective of the clinics’ unwillingness to accept patients with very low chance of success and therefore could not be compared on a like-for-like basis.

'It’s such a gift we’ve been given. It’s amazing what CREATE does'

It was definitely the emphasis on Natural and Mild IVF that attracted me immediately to CREATE. It’s not just a scientific procedure, it’s completely life changing for so many people and our lives have, of course, changed in every possible way. There’s not a day that goes by when I’m not unbelievably thankful.

'For us, the best parts of our treatment with CREATE were the genuine care that the staff have for you'

Also our treatment was very smooth and it was all very well explained; we were never unsure of the next step. We were very well informed and no question was a silly question. Our advice to other same sex couples would be to enjoy your journey; whether your journey goes well or you encounter problems. Try and embrace the roller coaster, it is hard but in the end, it’s your journey.

'Being able to start our own family has taken our relationship to the new level and has opened up a new chapter in our lives'

Everyone at CREATE was very warm and supportive every step of the way. They made our whole experience really lovely. We are on a wonderful journey and if you’re in a same sex relationship and considering starting a family, there are so many options that will allow you to do that. We are now planning to give our daughter a blood sibling using the same sperm donor.

'I was looked at as a whole person and the suggested treatment tailored to me and my body'

When I came in for my first consultation the difference from the last clinic was incredible. During the scan and consultation I had total belief in the doctor, which was particularly important, having been let down and misinformed at my previous clinic.

'CREATE have enabled me to achieve success despite the probability being so low due to my ovarian reserve'

A three cycle package is very affordable in comparison to my previous experiences and I froze the embryo from each cycle. Then the exciting time came when two of my embryos were implanted and I had great confidence knowing we went for an approach that advocates quality not quantity.

'I liked CREATE’s approach from the very start'

When I came in to CREATE for my first consultation and scan with the doctor, I could tell straight away he knew what he was talking about. He had done research into my cancer prior to seeing me and created a protocol for Natural Modified IVF with minimal drugs so that the treatment affected my hormones as little as possible. I honestly do not think any other clinic would have paid that level of attention to my specific needs. I was filled with feelings of security and hope. I knew I was in good hands.

'The protocol I was given was straight forward and came with a good step by step guide.'

If you are considering egg freezing or are already in the process, I would encourage you to keep calm and know it is okay to be emotional. It isn’t an easy process and it is okay to take some time out, once it’s done, to recover. I would definitely recommend CREATE.

'Successful treatment after OHSS at another clinic'

Our experience with CREATE was of a much calmer process, and I was able to fit the treatment in around my work. I was incredibly relieved to deliver my healthy baby boy in October. He has made everything worthwhile and I’m so glad I didn’t give up.

'All the staff at CREATE strike the tricky balance of being professional, yet approachable and relaxed'

'A baby with CREATE after 10 unsuccessful cycles elsewhere'

CREATE made us realise that as I had low ovarian reserve, the quality of the eggs was likely to compromised by heavy ovarian stimulation and hence reduce chances of success. We were lucky to have a positive pregnancy and a beautiful baby daughter born in December 2012. We would recommend the natural approach to anyone in a similar situation.

'The staff at CREATE were quite simply fantastic- professional, empathetic and positive.'

CREATE’s vigilance also allayed any worries I had about ovarian hyperstimulation. As CREATE rightly state, all that is needed is one viable sperm and a healthy egg. The wonderful ethos of this clinic is woman centred prioritising Gynaecological health not statistics.

Our daughter had egg collections over a few months and although she had a failed first attempt at CREATE and was devastated, the Consultant was truly amazing. His gentle, wonderful, caring approach was exactly the care that was needed. Amazingly the second attempt worked and our daughter and son-in-law are the proud parents of a beautiful 7 1/2lb healthy baby boy.
