Travelling for IVF

When it comes to choosing your IVF provider, there are so many factors to consider. Do you just go to your nearest IVF clinic? Do you cast the net further afield? Or do you consider leaving your home country?

Veronica Montgomery, Clinic & Patient Liaison Consultant, here at The Fertility Hub discusses this topic in her presentation today. You can watch her speaking at 2pm at the Beat Infertility National Virtual summit.
