“It’s vital for me to protect the mental well-being of my patients through education and awareness.”
Heading up our new West London lab is Emma Whitney, aka @emmatheembryologist, is a HCPC registered clinical scientist in the speciality of reproductive medicine.
With nearly 20 years of practical IVF laboratory experience, Emma specialises in pre-implantation genetic testing of embryos with a passion to prevent the transmission of inherited genetic disease and enhancing the capabilities of embryo selection.
Emma’s commitment to genetics, coupled with her multitude of experiences allows for a pragmatic and honest approach when discussing embryology.
Emma believes IVF patients should have the opportunity to understand what goes on in an IVF lab. Her commitment to genetics, coupled with her multitude of experience, helps patients alleviate some of the stress and anxiety caused by so many unknowns.
“IVF is as much an emotional journey as it is a scientific one. I endeavour to protect the mental well-being of my patients through education and awareness. So no matter what science has to offer, every patient is in a better position to deal with the outcomes.”
