Taking the step to becoming a solo mum by choice and having a baby on your own, is empowering but can also leave a lot of questions. Our team are here to support single women who decide to start their own families, taking the time to ensure they are fully supported throughout their journey.
There are a few options available for single women wishing to become solo mums by choice, from preserving future fertility with either egg freezing or embryo banking, or IVF or IUI using donor sperm.
Our consultants and nursing team are fully trained to help advise on the best options, working with you to consider your fertility and current circumstances, and creating an individualised plan.
Starting with a fertility review allows you to make the best decision to not only get pregnant, but preserve your fertility and create a future family. Our Female Fertility Review includes an initial consultation, an ultrasound scan, an AMH (ovarian reserve) blood test and a TSH (thyroid function) blood test.
Depending on your medical history, you may be able to start with IUI, a minimally invasive fertility treatment. IUI cycles can either work around your natural cycle, or can be medicated. A typical IUI cycle can take around 2-3 weeks. We do everything we can to work around your life and your cycle. Only when you’re ready, your IUI treatment will start.
We don’t want you to go through extensive unnecessary tests or treatment, and this is especially important when you’re undergoing IVF on your own. We consider every patient individually, and design optimised treatment plans around your specific fertility history and current situation, giving you the options and choices to build your own family.
Our team have been trained to support women wishing to undergo fertility treatment on their own, ensuring sensitivity and individual circumstances are considered during appointments.
We offer slightly longer appointment times, to ensure you’ve been able to ask all the questions you may have, and our team will always make sure no reference to a partner is made throughout your appointments.
We have a preferred network of providers, including:
For those wishing to preserve their fertility, you can freeze your eggs or use donor sperm to create embryos for freezing. This process takes around two weeks from starting the medication to stimulate your ovaries, through to egg collection. From there, your eggs or embryos will be cryopreserved until you’re ready to use them.
Our West London Lab Manager, Emma Whitney (aka @emmatheembryologist) looks at the facts behind freezing embryos.
We’ve created a knowledge hub, where you can find authentic, truthful and honest advice from our consultants and external experts, such as nutritionists and complementary therapists, as well as real-life stories from patients.
