An introduction to an inclusive and cost effective way to improve employee health and wellbeing.

Did you know?

1 in every 6 (3.5 million) couples in the UK have difficulties conceiving. Single women are increasingly worried about their reproductive health as they approach their 40’s. Every LGBT+ employee needs support to start a family.

Every employee deserves affordable access to quality fertility treatment and reproductive health support.

By ignoring fertility wellbeing in the workplace, there’s a significant impact on employee productivity, absenteeism and eventually retention.

Reproductive health has been ignored in the workplace due to the private and sensitive nature of the issue, leaving employers unsure of how to support their employees

Financial wellbeing

Fertility treatment can equate to the cost of a significant deposit on a house.

Employer-funded fertility support improves financial wellbeing and reduces the stress of how to afford treatment.

What’s the alternative?

Private clinics can charge upwards of £4,500 for every single cycle of IVF – and that’s excluding medication costs which can also reach into the thousands. The government’s funding for NHS fertility treatment is dwindling (and not inclusive of all demographics) and most private medical insurers do not cover fertility treatment.
