The 2018 London Fertility Show has a whole host of big names on its rostrum to mark its tenth birthday and 40 years of IVF and IVF babble will be right alongside to help celebrate
The show, being held at London Olympia on Saturday, November 3 and 4 and will welcome author Izzy Judd, who, along with husband, McFly’s Harry, went through their own fertility journey and television presenter Hannah Vaughan Jones, who has been documenting her fertility battle with husband, Lewis.
Other big names among the 50-strong list include Dr Zoe Williams, This Morning’s resident doctor and the world’s first IVF baby, Louise Brown, who is celebrating her 40th birthday.
The show’s managing director, Laura Biggs, said: “We are thrilled that this year we have more than 50 speakers, including top clinicians, therapists, counsellors, experts and patients. We pride ourselves on providing our visitors with a wide range of seminars and discussions throughout the weekend and we hope that from these talks and discussions our visitors will leave The Fertility Show better equipped to continue on their fertility journey.”
This year’s show sees a brand new and exciting collaboration between The Fertility Show, the UK’s largest event of its kind, IVF babble – the world’s leading online fertility magazine and Fertility Network UK, the nation’s leading patient-focused fertility charity, who provide invaluable information, support and advice to all those struggling to conceive.
These three parties have joined forces to offer a more approachable voice and features to this year’s show.
This includes the ‘Let’s Talk Fertility’ Stage, a re-brand of the Q&A Stage, bringing a softer feel with more patient stories, up-to-the-minute information and advice. Informal discussions with the visitors and conversations with top names in the world of fertility and celebrity stories too.
New to the show this year will be the IVF babble lounge
Offering an oasis of calm – hosting counsellors, therapists, some public faces and other IVF babble supporters going through their own fertility journeys, sharing experiences and advice from a patients perspective.
The lounge will have a number of fertility ambassadors who will be on hand to offer a warm welcome and an ear to listen because they have been there, understand and can share their stories too
IVF babble co-founders, Tracey Bambrough and Sara Marshall-Page, have both been working hard to make sure the lounge has exactly the right vibe
Tracey said: “We are really looking forward to hosting the IVF babble lounge at this year’s show. We want it to be a place where visitors can come, sit and chill. It is a very emotional journey and can sometimes feel overwhelming, especially when you’re trying to take in as much information as possible. A friendly ear and a warm welcome awaits from people who have been there, or are going through the process, and can share their stories too.”
