We also offer corporate membership options designed to assist businesses in supporting their employees’ fertility challenges while navigating work responsibilities. We provide guidance for HR professionals and line managers on how to incorporate fertility support into their diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) policies.

As the UK’s fastest-expanding fertility community, we offer global content tailored to anyone seeking information or support regarding fertility health. Our membership has been curated by individuals who have personally experienced various fertility challenges. Ensuring that our resources address the essential elements for achieving family success and understanding fertility prognoses.

At The IVF Network, we prioritise patient-centred care and emotional support. While we do not provide medical recommendations, testing, or financial support, we offer something of greater significance. A strong sense of community, access to comprehensive and topical content, and opportunities to engage with leading global experts through monthly events.

Our corporate membership includes a fertility policy toolkit, customized content, workshops, and training for line managers to effectively support their teams while implementing DE&I policies.
