We support you across every step of your journey

Fertility treatment can equate to the cost of a 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 £8,000 for a single cycle of IVF – which may/not include costs of medication. The government’s funding for NHS fertility treatment is constrained (and not inclusive of all demographics) and most private medical insurers do not cover fertility treatment.

Fertility treatment can be physically draining and very demanding. And that’s before factoring in not just due to the countless many appointments, the worrying and the trying to figure out complicated terms and difficult parts of the process.​
We’ve been there.

Hours on Google looking at treatment options, days of injecting hormones, weeks spent running back and forth between the office and home and fertility clinics. All of these factors place a huge physical burden on employees, all whilst compounding the issue of ‘presenteeism’.

When faced with infertility, 90% of individuals feel depressed.​

​No one prepares you for reproductive health challenges and every fertility journey is uniquely stressful. People can feel overwhelmed, inadequate, guilty and isolated. These feelings are exacerbated with conflicting work demands and a lack of support within the workplace.​

​We are an advocate for every individual who wants to take control of their reproductive health.​

​Every employee has a dedicated Care Advisor who will guide and mentor them, and supporting them physically, emotionally and mentally to encourage the best and most deserved outcome.

Because everyone’s story is different.

Abdul & Meera​

  • Married for 3 years and ready to start their family​
  • Weren’t in any rush before but now their friends are all starting families so they think the time is right

Needs

  • Meera is wondering if she waited too long to stop her contraception​
  • Abdul assumes that Meera simply needed a few months for her system to adjust

Worries

  • How can they not put pressure on making a baby
  • How to help Abdul realise that by taking an at-home sperm test it will put Meera’s mind at ease?​
  • Do they qualify for NHS IVF cycles? Will they be able to afford a private fertility clinic?​

  • Keen to be parents​
  • Would be happy to adopt but considering surrogacy so that the child would be biologically theirs

Needs

  • If they pursue surrogacy they’re considering using either one of their sperm, so they should test both

Worries

  • What’s the process for surrogacy in the UK since commercial surrogacy isn’t permitted?​
  • What other countries should they consider?​

Isabel​

  • In her late 30’s Isabel hasn’t met her life partner yet but feels ready and keen to have a child

Needs

  • Isabel isn’t sure of her fertility baseline or if she’d conceive quickly​

Worries

  • What support system should Isabel have around her?​
