CREATE was also the first fertility clinic to make a commitment to Natural and Mild IVF in the world. Today, IVF success rates with Mild IVF at CREATE are excellent and with Natural Cycle IVF, we give options to those who would be turned away elsewhere.
Our fertility treatments offer women the chance to have a baby using their own eggs, without the need for long and intense courses of stimulating drugs. Natural and Mild IVF work within a woman's natural cycle and focus on the quality of eggs and embryos, not the quantity.
By using a tailored approach that focuses on quality and not quantity, Natural and Mild IVF offer an IVF experience that is aimed at protecting both the short and long-term health of mother and child.
Medical Director, Professor Geeta Nargund
At CREATE Fertility, we advocate Natural and Mild IVF because they focus on the quality of eggs/embryos, not the quantity. There is considerable scientific evidence to show that embryos created from IVF cycles with lower doses of stimulating drugs are of higher quality than those produced in conventional IVF.
In the study by Baart et al. embryos were created from Conventional and Mild IVF cycles. So on first glance, in terms of number of embryos, it appears that Conventional IVF is the better option. However, when the embryos are examined in more details for chromosomal problems (aneuploidy), a significantly higher percentage in a conventional, high stimulation IVF cycle are found to be chromosomally abnormal.
All of the additional drugs, stress and costs were unnecessary; the same result could be achieved with Mild IVF.
Our consultants are at the heart of everything we do. We take pride in recruiting some of the top fertility experts. Our practice is based on scientific expertise and led by Professors Nargund, Campbell and Chian, who have pioneered many new innovations in fertility and IVF. These medical leaders train our team of doctors, who are highly experienced. Your treatment will be led throughout by our doctors, which differs from other clinics, where care is often led by the nursing team.
At CREATE, we have spearheaded Natural and Mild IVF in the UK and we are very proud of the success rates we have achieved. We understand how important success rates can be when choosing a fertility clinic so it’s vitally important these are as accurate as possible.
We strive to be open, transparent and honest about our results, for this reason we’ve included the latest HFEA verified data so you can be confident in our figures.

Our Medical Director, Professor Geeta Nargund, has long been committed to finding ways to make IVF more affordable. From her early academic work studying how to improve the success of Natural Cycle IVF, she realised that the fertility drugs in conventional IVF contribute significantly to the cost of each treatment. Her work has therefore focused on making Natural and Mild IVF more successful, so that the cost would be more affordable.
One of the major benefits of coming to CREATE Fertility for treatment is that there are no waiting lists. With treatment on the NHS involving long waiting lists, private treatment is often a more suitable option for those for whom time is running out. Typically patients on the NHS have to wait around 2 years after being approved for funding. At our clinics you do not have to wait at all, we will simply work within your natural cycle.
