What participants have said

This was the best workshop I’ve ever done.

Great to have such exposure to up-to-date research on how lifestyles and can impact fertility.

Thoroughly enjoyable. The content was excellent, detailed, and perfectly aimed for my needs.

So helpful. Loved the way the information was presented.

Great workshop – has given me a lot of direction on how to structure fertility consultations.

I particularly loved learning about motivational interviewing so patients can take more responsibility for their decisions.
