Barbados Fertility Centre (BFC) families come together to celebrate 10 years of success!
At the end of April, the entire medical team at Barbados Fertility Centre and over 350 babies born to Barbadian families gathered to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the clinic’s inception, the lives created and the immense joy these children have brought to their parents.
The very first BFC baby who is now 10, ran around with all the other children who ranged in age right down to new bundles who were only weeks old. The children enjoyed whizzing up and down the zip slide with the nurses from BFC, face painting, and many adventures in the activity playground where the party was held.
The state of the art unit was opened in 2002 by colleagues Dr. Juliet Skinner & IVF Nurse Specialist Anna Hosford, they shared a vision to create a centre of excellence for fertility with affordable treatment in a relaxing environment.
The ethos at Barbados Fertility Centre has always been is to look at the entire medical history and even if they can only increase a couple’s chance by 1%, that 1% is a baby for someone. They increase a couples chances by offering cutting edge techniques and procedures that may be not be offered as standard in many countries.
They also offer a Healthy Mind Body Program, which cements the whole IVF procedure where they combine the traditional medicine around holistic treatments such as acupuncture, reflexology, massage and sessions to cope with the emotion associated with IVF.
It is well documented that as stress levels go up, pregnancy rates go down, and in the last 10 years the team at BFC have perfected getting couples to unwind whilst undergoing treatment with them and this is reflected in their excellent success rates.
