EXPERTS who help childless families to have babies will be meeting in Hartlepool later this week.
Professors, doctors and counsellors from the University Hospital of Hartlepool’s assisted reproduction unit will be holding a seminar on Friday.
They are the team who help couples who are having difficulties conceiving to become parents. The event will be held at Hartlepool College of Further Education.
The annual conference, which is titled management of reduced ovarian reserve, will cover topics including IVF treatment and the challenge of a low ovarian reserve in treating infertility.
Principal embryologist David Gibbon said: “Events like this are a great way for experts to share the huge amount of knowledge and experience they have.”
The event will include presentations from internationally renowned speakers, professors Richard Fleming, Geeta Nargund and Steven Fleming and doctor Stephen Troup.
Clinical lead for the unit Hany Mostafa said: “We are offering the most up to date knowledge and technology in the assisted reproduction unit at Hartlepool in order to help patients achieve their dream of having a child.”.
