Personal statement 

My pathway to IVF began helping women with complications during and after pregnancy. Since the beginning of my career, I have specialised in the surgical management of intrauterine pathologies (advanced hysteroscopy). I have also been involved with patients with intrauterine complications after delivery, such as Asherman’s syndrome.

I then progressed along a logical path that led me to continue caring for couples seeking to conceive. IVF is often a long and challenging journey, but when nature and us finally seal a deal’ and the result is a healthy family, it gives me great joy and satisfaction. What is important to me in this process is a personalised, empathetic approach. Respect for a couple’s wishes is foremost throughout the process, as is maintaining open communication based on detailed information. At PFC, we offer couples a comprehensive support network — from IVF coordinators to the embryologists. We are a close-knit team that truly cares about each and every couple we treat.
