New online FertilityFORUM for IVFAustralia Patients

IVFAustralia has launched an online Fertility Forum for patients to communicate with other patients about their IVF journey.

IVFAustralia is the first Australian IVF Clinic to introduce an online FertilityFORUM for its patients to help them share their knowledge, insights and experiences with others.

The Forum comes in response to patient research which identified that patients want to communicate with other patients while retaining their anonymity. 

Located on the IVFAustralia website, www.ivf.com.au, the forum is password protected for use only by IVF patients.  It aims to provide a safe, secure, caring environment for patients to be able to ask questions and gain insights from others who are going through a similar journey in their efforts to have a baby.

“While we have trained and experienced counsellors at all our clinics, which most patients avail of, there will be times when our patients just want to talk to other women or men who have gone through or are going through the same experience. The forum is there to facilitate that communication,” explained IVFAustralia’s Director of Nursing, Jane Early.

“The forum also means patients can talk to each other late at night or at times to suit them.  If there is something on their mind, there is a place for them to get in touch with other patients, and we think they will find that really helpful.”

“The Forum will not be offering any medical advice or replace medical consults in any way, but it will offer our patients social support, and we know how important that is for our patients,” Ms Early added.

The forum will be moderated by people who have experienced IVF first hand.  Moderator and former IVFAustralia patient, Natasha Lovrich, believes the forum will be a major benefit to patients.

“Going through IVF is such a unique and personal experience.  It can be hard for those who have not experienced it to understand all the anxiety and emotional turmoil you go through.  To be able to have advice, comfort or encouragement from other patients on tap, as it were, is going to be so helpful,” Natasha said.

Existing threads on the site include first time treatment, treatment again, PCOS, single mums, men’s corner, donors, and pregnancy loss.
