The year has got off to a great start as I have been invited to join the executive team of the National Fertility Society. I met the team at an event in Birmingham and they are real experts, supporting people by providing information on fertility subjects.

Of course Iā€™m not an expert but being around so many people in the fertility business all my life I hope I can add something to the pool of knowledge at the organisation in this voluntary role. My mum got very little help during her fertility treatment and she would be delighted to see how much support there is available today.

The society gives impartial information on choosing a clinic and receiving treatment in the UK or abroad. It also provides independent Specialist Fertility Counsellors throughout the UK. The counsellors do a great job and provide that human touch for those seeking help.
