The London Fertility Show has some exciting new additions to its line-up this year and IVF babble will be right there with you to help guide you along your weekend
This November the show will incorporate the fantastic Fertility Fest, an arts collaboration dedicated to the world of fertility, reproductive science and the creation of the modern family through dance, music, art, literature and discussion.
In its fourth year, the arts festival is the brainchild of Gabby Vautier and Jessica Hepburn and is the first of its kind in the UK. This year has been the show’s most successful to date, with a month residency at the Barbican Centre and the creation of the satellite festivals for the Fertility Show and the European Society for Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE), the world’s largest fertility conference.
Just some of the sessions include the ultimate survivors guide to IVF, hosted by show co-founder, Jessica Hepburn, who will be joined by fertility podcaster Cat Strawbridge and chairwoman of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, Angela Pericleous-Smith, actress and chef, Lisa Faulkner will host When Plan B is meant to be, a talk on her IVF journey, recently documented in her book Meant To Be, along with Professor Jacky Boivin, head of psychology at Cardiff University and Mohamed Taranissi is the founder and medical director of The Assisted Reproduction and Gynaecology Centre (ARGC).
Discussions will also take place on the male fertility journey, miscarriage and pregnancy loss, LGBTQ families and single parenthood
The Friday evening slot is also a new addition to the show for anyone who can’t make the weekend event and will host three seminars with leading fertility experts, professor Geeta Nargund, Dr Tarek El-Toukhy and holistic therapist, Emma Cannon.
Laura Biggs, said: “We are opening for the first time on a Friday to help even more people come to the show. Friday will have a fantastic line up of talks and seminars as well as exciting Fertility Fest content , our aim is to make the show as accessible and helpful as possible to anyone who is seeking help with their individual Fertility journey.”
The event will take place on November 1 to 3 and will bring together more than 100 clinics, experts, doctors and specialists from across the UK and overseas, offering advice, support and options for anyone on their personal fertility journey
