View Full Version : Anyone with Fertility First at Hurstville, Dr Ann Clark
I'm in NSW and need donor sperm for my next ICSI cycle, my clinic has run out. It will be quite a few months before I can access any and at 43 am in a panic :eek:
I've heard Fertility First at Hurstville has plenty and am wondering if anyone else here has cycled with them. Or, have had Ann Clark as their specialist.
Any information will help. Hurstville is around 2 and a half hours from my home and I don't want to change clinics and find out that FF is not all that good.
I went to FF but for Ovulation induction (4 cycles) and IUI (was waiting to start first cycle when we found I got preggie by myself- with a little help from DH). They are good in that they will probably get things moving pretty quickly (after the wait for the initial appointment- was 2 months for me, 3 weeks for a subsequent appointment). The Nursing staff are excellent and I dealt mainly with them. Only saw Anne for initial appointments and on the odd scan when the 'scan' lady was away. Leave lots of time for your appointments as she is ALWAYS running late, even for a 7:15am appointment!
Scan mornings feel like a cattle call but have to be done. The clinic is beautiful. I always felt underdressed when I went because everything was so pretty! Fish tanks in the blood rooms were exciting (even the fish were pregnant!) but does make me wonder where my money is going sometimes :laughing: but I guess that is testimony to her success perhaps. They looked after me and confirmed my pregnancy and gave me a dating scan even though I fell pregnant naturally and made sre I was set up with an Obstetrician. Lots of women in the waiting rooms with babies and know another lady that was successful with IUI after three cycles. I have no experience with other clinics so cannot compare.
I think Anne's husband works at the Private hospital and deals with IVF too. I know they have a website too.
