Testimonials

“Many thanks for all your care and support over the last couple of years. We cannot thank you enough for everything you have done for us and we are super excited about the birth of our baby due next month. The work you do is fantastic and we can never thank you enough.”

“To say we are grateful to Professor Balen for identifying our problems and assisting us is an understatement. The fact that he listened so carefully to my concerns was notable. Everyone I had spoken to before ignored the issues that I raised and I cannot thank Professor Balen enough.”

“We would like to thank you so much for the wonderful care and support given to us whilst seeking treatment with you. We are so happy that you gave us the chance to be parents and welcomed our wonderful son into the world.”

“I had my NHS scan last week and confirmed my due date, it feels like a dream come true! For us, Grace became our only hope, as you know to go again with another round of IVF as it stood would have been pointless.  Meeting Grace was fascinating, even if we did not come out with a fertility success we knew it would be hugely beneficial for our health. Grace gave us hope by not only highlighting the fact that we already had a child and my multiple miscarriage proving I can conceive.  We opted to have every test and analysis done which came out highlighting deficiency in vitamin D and various other vitamins and minerals. Grace is very supportive and it is so important that fertility is her speciality as she has so much experience in the emotional side of this very delicate area.”

Note: This patient conceived naturally after failed IVF cycles and multiple miscarriages.

 

“Dear Grace
Thank you so much for seeing us on Wednesday.
It was an absolute pleasure to meet you and we are so grateful for your time. We felt very positive about the whole experience and look forward to the next steps.
We found the appointment very useful and informative. We have been on this journey for quite a while now and we were beginning to lose hope but for the first time in a good while we are excited by the prospect of getting to the bottom of this little mystery! It was so nice to finally be listened to and for that we are extremely grateful.”

Hi Grace

I wanted to provide some feedback from the recent course and also to express an interest in the consultations please.

I want to say a huge thank you, the course has been a real eye opener and has really made me think about what we eat and what nutritional value the food we eat has. I cannot say thank you enough for the benefit that this will have (hopefully) on our reproductive health and certainly on our overall health and well being. As I shared with you tonight your course has changed my husband’s food choices so significantly. Even though he hasn’t been able to attend the course he has read the slides weekly and has gone from McDonald’s or a ready meal when working away to home cooked beef Ragu with a large portion of veg (as picture attached). I think my quote when I showed you this at the cooking class was something like “thank you so much you have changed my husband’s life”. 

In regards to the course content it was extremely useful and very thorough. It was enough information to make you think but not too much as to feel bombarded.

As for the cookery class I am so so pleased I attended it was fantastic and the food was great!! I especially enjoyed being able to sit with the others and talk as we have then all shared numbers which is really lovely. My husband and I have found that the process can feel very isolated and being able to meet and speak to others in similar situations to yourself feels like a huge relief.

We have found the process of fertility testing to be so challenging at times and the clear progression from being advised in January that my bmi is normal and that’s all to focus on to then attend the amazingly in depth course you have facilitated is world’s apart. I hope that one day everyone going through fertility issues has this information available to them as I feel like I have regained some control in a situation that I have felt has been very much out of my control. Thank you.

Thank you again and look forward to hearing about the consultations.

Many thanks”

“Dear Grace and Adam,

My partner and I attended your 3 week support group this month. I wanted to send a quick note to thank you for running this. 

A great deal of the information was absolutely new to me. I wrote this on the feedback forms but I’m staggered to only now find out these details when they would have been enormously valuable way back as a teenager and throughout my life. 

My partner and I have both made huge changes to how we eat, drink and exercise. We know there are no guarantees but at the very least we’ll be healthier for it. I appreciate the time you took to answer personal questions. I have always been hugely impressed at the quality of service offered at Leeds Fertility and your support group only goes to add to this. I hope you can continue to make it available for free. 

Once again, huge thanks to you both! 

Kind regards”

“Thank you so much for all your help over the last 3 ½ years. I can’t tell you how nice it has been having someone patient and kind answering all my questions.”

“We would like to thank you so much for the wonderful care and support given to us whilst seeking treatment with you. We are so happy that you gave us the chance to be parents and welcomed our wonderful son into the world.”

“We will never forgot what you have done to help us achieve our family, so THANK YOU.”

“Words cannot say how thankful we are to you because if it hadn’t have been for your kindness, skill and effort we would never have been blessed with our daughter.”

“We are overjoyed to be able to share with you the happy news of the safe arrival of our precious daughter. Once again we would like to thank you for your caring and kindness in accommodating our needs, which together with your professionalism brought us to this happy ending.”

“I wanted to thank you for your care and help since I approached you with my concerns. As you know I have had an increasingly difficult few years and felt this has been pretty much ignored by the medical staff I have seen. I cannot describe the relief at being listened to and finally diagnosed after all this time. I know that you are extremely busy and have shown a great kindess by taking over my care in this matter. It makes a big difference to see a friendly face when you feel vulnerable and the reassurance of your expertise. I appreciate your discretion and support. Thank you for all you have done.”
