footer_peopleFees and Fertility

I’m very conscious of the financial burden fertility treatment can place on you and that’s why I don’t believe in charging unrealistic amounts for the fertility support I offer. As we all know it’s possible to get some excellent free support through fertility charities, online forums and Great Aunt Carol’s next door neighbour’s daughter but…

…I have a wealth of knowledge, skills and experience to share specifically with you as and when you actually want and need it. For those reasons I do not undervalue our time and the work undertaken for me to be there for you as my absolute priority. It’s all about you.

My promises to you:

  • I am 100% committed to you as my client.
  • I will provide you with the very best of my skills, qualifications and life experiences.
  • I will endeavour to ensure that any support you need is delivered in the most efficient and cost-effective way for your personal circumstances.
  • I will offer you a transparent pricing policy.

Starting Out

Women and men at any stage of their fertility investigations and treatments who know that they need some kind of support but aren’t sure what it might be.

We can discuss your needs as you see, feel and believe them to be. We can agree on the ideal level of support for you at this time in your life.

How long will it take?

30 minutes.

It’s totally free!

Infertility Sherpa Packages

I understand that you may need different levels and types of practical and emotional support and companionship at different times during your fertility journey. With that in mind I’ve devised a simple ‘package’ system which I’m confident is flexible enough to meet your needs every step of the way.

Iris 5

What is it?

Five hours of responsive and nurturing fertility support each month over the phone, by text, email or online.

Who’s it for?

Ideal for individuals starting out with fertility tests and investigations who need that little extra something from someone who gets what they’re going through and can offer some support and guidance navigating the fertility rabbit hole. Also suitable for individuals who are perhaps between fertility treatments and are looking for someone to give them a boost and moral support.

Why do it?

The unknown can be a lonely and frightening place whether you’re at the outset of trying to create your family or whether you’re between treatment cycles. Having someone with personal experience of fertility investigations and treatment who’s by your side yet outside your everyday friends and family can be reassuring and refreshing. It will also save you a huge amount of time and energy as I can fill in some of the gaps in knowledge, information and practicals that can get overlooked in traditional clinic appointments.

How many hours’ support will you receive?

You will be my priority for up to five hours every month. That time can be used however we mutually agree.

How much does it cost?

£175 per month

Iris 10

Ten hours of caring fertility support each month including:

  • five hours of phone, text, email and online support; and
  • five hours of in-person support.

You’ll also have the option of rolling 1 unused hour forward to the next month

Who’s it for?

Any male or female who’s in need of some more intensive support. Perhaps, you’re undergoing a treatment cycle and want to know that you have someone walking alongside you and who can come to the occasional appointment with you. Also suited to anyone who’s looking for some research or further input into the nature of treatment to opt for or is looking for a sounding board.

Why do it?

The Iris 10 package will give you personalised support as and when you need it before, during and after your treatment cycles.

How many hours’ support will you receive?

You will be my priority for up to 10 hours every month. That time can be used however we mutually agree.

Iris 15

What is it?

15 hours of empathic and dynamic fertility support each month including:

  • phone, text, email, online and in-person support to use as you wish
  • option of rolling 1.5 unused hours forward to the next month.

Who’s it for?

Women and men at any stage of fertility investigations and treatment.

Why do it?

Perhaps you’re feeling frazzled and run down from treatment cycles and want someone objective by your side who’s there just for you. Maybe you need an advocate or a researcher. Perhaps you want to talk or vent, rant and cry. This additional level of monthly support will give you more regular empathic, nurturing, dynamic, honest and very, very human contact with me.

How many hours’ support will you receive?

You will be my priority for up to 15 hours every month. That time can be used however we mutually agree.

How much does it cost?

£500 per month

Meet-ups

I run a series of separate events for: (1) individuals trying to conceive with medical assistance; and (2) people whose children are trying to conceive in this way. I do not wish finances to be a barrier to anyone who would like to come along to these groups, however I do need to cover the cost of venue hire and refreshments. For that reason, please pay what you can.

Space to be Me: Suggested donation £5 per person

Grandparent in Waiting: Suggested donation £5 per person
