Partners with UAE's only IVF and Fertility Support Group to eliminate social stigma attached with infertility 

April 28, 2017, Dubai, UAE:  With the aim to provide education, raise awareness, support and encourage women and couples struggling with infertility, Bourn Hall Fertility Centre, Dubai,  collaborates with the ‘IVF & Fertility Support Group – UAE', the country's exclusive forum for voicing out all issues related to infertility. Bourn Hall Fertility Centre will support the group's growing membership by offering expert advice, free consultations and fertility checks besides offering counseling and continuous education.
With the region having some of the highest levels of obesity and Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) cases in the world – the two key factors for infertility – it is easy to understand why one in six couples in the UAE is facing fertility issues. Bourn Hall Fertility Centre recognized the need for awareness and education, and therefore, has been actively running fertility awareness campaigns on its own and also continues to conduct regular seminars, talks, workshops and counseling to impart knowledge within the medical fraternity as well as to educate community at large. As part of their commitment to offer continuing education in assisted reproduction techniques, Bourn Hall Fertility Centre is now partnering with UAE's only ‘IVF and Fertility Support Group' to join forces and work together on educational aspects of fertility issues so that any couple facing difficulties on their journey to parenthood can seek qualified information and support.
“Attitudes are slowly changing but there is a long way to go until couples can come out and talk about fertility issues with a greater acceptance and our alliance with the IVF and Fertility Support Group is a great step in this direction. We are happy to support the initiative and help impart the knowledge and guidance on various issues concerning fertility”, said Hoda Abou Jamra, Group CEO of Bourn Hall International, the holding company of Bourn Hall Fertility Centre, Dubai.
“We are so excited about the opportunity Bourn Hall Fertility Centre is offering the members of 'IVF and Fertility Support – UAE'. Since so many of us are away from home and our support network of friends and family, it is vital that we have each other for comfort and encouragement and the people at Bourn Hall Fertility Centre to turn to for expert medical advice. We are a diverse group of women with many different backgrounds trying to conceive and we are very grateful for the support being offered. A community of people with the same objective, facing the same difficulties, can prove to be very important. We feel privileged to have each other and lucky to have Bourn Hall Fertility Centre at our sides,” said Cassie Destino, the founder of the ‘IVF and Fertility Support Group- UAE'.

Bourn Hall Fertility Centre conducts regular seminars with the vision to impart knowledge within the medical fraternity as well as to educate community at large. In a recently concluded workshop on the latest advances in ultrasound in fertility conducted for the obstetricians and gynaecologists, the Centre provided the knowledge, basic principles and hands-on experience to delegates on the tools and techniques. As part of their commitment to offer continuing education in assisted reproduction techniques, the Bourn Hall Fertility Centre aims to conduct further workshops on new advancements and various aspects of fertility.
“Education is key and crucial in this matter. There are many couples out there who have very little information regarding the causes of infertility, be it primary or secondary and its treatment. Often they also have no idea at what time they should seek treatment. At times they approach us too early, while in other cases they inadvertently leave it for too late and this can create a number of complications. While there are several reasons why couples are unable to conceive, technically, a normal, healthy couple should start getting worried if they have been trying for more than a year without using contraceptives since this could potentially be a case of infertility,” said Dr David Robertson, Group Medical Director at Bourn Hall Fertility Centre, Dubai.
