Encouraging expectant mothers to monitor their own health from home, alongside virtual consultations, is understood to help reduce stress – something that plays an important role during the IVF journey.
Stress can certainly affect the decision making process and ability to continue with treatment. Emotional wellbeing and support are crucial, and anything that can reduce the level of stress, whilst maintaining patient engagement and positivity is likely to offer an advantage and enhance the cumulative chances of IVF success.
High stress levels can be experienced any time from the early days of trying to conceive, to waiting for a pregnancy test after embryo transfer, so it’s important that clinics offer expert, professional support during and post treatment.
Both reassurance and information are central to the success of fertility treatment. Adequate, prompt and professional communication can help to mitigate anxiety and maintain reassurance during the assisted conception cycle.
The two-week wait post embryo transfer can be stressful, but knowing that somebody is only a phone call away, or available to answer questions at any time, 24/7, can give peace-of-mind.
Access to information in the patient’s own language, and reassurance from an expert, and sympathetic team, are also contributory factors to enhancing the overall chances of having a baby through IVF.
NOW-fertility’s ‘always-on’ approach via virtual IVF consultations, appointments, telephone, and online guidance will mean fewer clinic visits and less time spent travelling, but a much higher level of communication than they would receive via a traditional IVF clinic.
We will also offer guaranteed response times to patient queries, which will mean they are not waiting to hear back from their fertility expert; this approach makes for great peace-of-mind and fewer stressful situations.
