Waterford Fertility, one of Ireland's leading fertility and IVF clinics, is to host a free information seminar on Tuesday, June 27th at 6pm. The event will be held at its clinic at Maritana Gate, Canada Street.

Waterford Fertility, one of Waterstone Clinic's four centres nationwide, has seen a 52% increase in the number of couples in Waterford availing of fertility services.

A team of consultant gynaecologists, scientists and fertility nurse specialists will talk at the seminar about maximising chances of conception and explain different treatment options available.

Dr Moya McMenamin, Consultant in Reproductive Medicine, will give an overview of diagnostic tests and treatment options. Speaking ahead of the free seminar, Dr McMenamin said: "We understand how intimidating it can be to seek fertility advice. Our hope, is that through this informal fertility seminar, men and women will be better informed and feel more comfortable about taking the next step.

"Sometimes difficulties with conceiving can relate to something as simple as lifestyle, which can be addressed and resolved easily. Other couples may need IVF and we will explain the treatment options and processes, answering any questions couples may have."

Dr McMenamin added: "Treatments and techniques are continually improving and evolving, and these scientific innovations, combined with excellent medical and patient care, can result in successful and happy outcomes for people."

Male fertility factors and the latest scientific developments will also be discussed.

Established 15 years ago, Waterstone Clinic is a leader in reproductive medicine in Ireland, with an established reputation for pioneering new treatments and delivering exceptional care at its clinics in Cork, Dublin, Limerick and Waterford. It recently opened a state-of-the-art national centre of fertility excellence at Lotamore House in Cork.
