In my opi­nion, there is still far too little trans­pa­rency on the topic of unful­filled child wishes – even though the topic is highly re­le­vant to so­ciety. With our portal, we want to edu­cate and help de­stig­ma­tize this dis­cus­sion.

To that, in­fer­ti­lity is often per­ceived as a “wo­men’s issue”, alt­hough the causes of child­less­ness are roughly equally dis­tri­buted bet­ween the sexes. Espe­ci­ally among men, awa­re­ness of this is still ex­tre­mely low.

At Fer­tilly, I am re­spon­sible for pa­tient care, the ma­nage­ment of our partner cli­nics and ever­y­thing con­nected to the ex­pe­ri­ence pa­ti­ents have with us and our part­ners on the path to a ful­filled child wish.

Today, the path to a de­sired child is paved with forms. The coor­di­na­tion ef­fort bet­ween pa­ti­ents, fer­ti­lity cen­ters, doc­tors and la­bo­ra­to­ries un­neces­s­a­rily bur­dens ex­pec­tant par­ents.

A fer­ti­lity journey does not have to be as com­plex as buil­ding a house. With tar­geted di­gital net­wor­king and smart dia­gno­stics, we can make the journey smoother for ever­yone in­volved. And create more space for what’s im­portant.

At Fer­tilly, I take care of exactly these is­sues: The de­ve­lo­p­ment of our di­gital so­lu­tions and the in­te­gra­tion of me­dical part­ners into our of­fe­ring.

The pro­blem of in­fer­ti­lity is more pr­e­va­lent than ever be­fore, ho­wever it is still in­suf­fi­ci­ently un­ders­tood and in­fre­quently dis­cussed. Alt­hough the dif­fi­cul­ties of fal­ling pregnant na­tu­rally are wi­de­spread, it is still ra­rely talked about.

At Fer­tilly, I have ac­com­pa­nied many pa­ti­ents on their very ex­ci­ting path to pa­ren­thood, and con­tinue to do this with as much sen­si­ti­vity and pro­fes­sio­na­lism as the first pa­tient I sup­ported.

As a coun­sellor for Ita­lian pa­ti­ents, I am your point of re­fe­rence th­roug­hout the en­tire pro­cess: from first coun­sel­ling contact, where I can answer your ques­tions, cla­rify any doubts and guide you towards the path that best suits your needs. Up until hop­efully the ful­filment of your wish to have a child.

In my per­sonal en­vi­ron­ment, I have dealt with the topic of “wan­ting a child” a lot and a few years ago I had the great for­tune to be­come a mom myself. I know the emo­tional ups and downs of a child­bea­ring journey very well. Alt­hough fer­ti­lity tre­at­ments are wi­dely available, it is still a stig­ma­tised sub­ject that is often kept quiet about — un­fort­u­na­tely.

At Fer­tilly, I want to sup­port you in clea­ring the jungle of in­for­ma­tion, gi­ving you a space for ques­tions and thoughts, and fin­ding the right path for you. I look for­ward to hea­ring from you!

The de­sire to have children is one of the most na­tural wishes of all — which is why trans­pa­rent and ho­li­stic ad­vice is par­ti­cu­larly im­portant. I have dealt with this topic myself, as it came up again and again in my pri­vate life. As a so­cial pe­dagogue and sup­ported by my trai­ning as a phar­maceu­tical tech­ni­cian, I hope to pro­vide you with all the in­for­ma­tion you need to make a de­cision that is right for you.

As your pa­tient care ad­visor, I will not only com­pre­hen­si­vely ad­vise you about all pos­sible op­tions, but I will also stand by your side in dif­fi­cult si­tua­tions and can be an emo­tional sup­port th­roug­hout your journey — this is our main goal at Fer­tilly. I am very happy to give you my full at­ten­tion th­rough my work at Fer­tilly, and th­rough this be a part of edu­ca­ting and en­su­ring trans­pa­rency when it comes to wan­ting a child.

There are wishes that are com­ple­tely wi­thin our power and, un­fort­u­na­tely, many others that are more dif­fi­cult to rea­lise than hoped. Often, sadly, the de­sire to have children is one of the latter. For me, Fer­til­ly’s mis­sion to ac­com­pany you in ful­fil­ling your de­sire to have a child and to sim­plify the path to this goal is of great im­portance.

As a pa­tient care ad­visor, I re­spond to your wishes and ques­tions with a great deal of em­pathy and un­der­stan­ding, so that you don’t feel left alone in the over­load of in­for­ma­tion. With an open ear, a lot of heart and the right in­for­ma­tion, I would like to ad­vise you on your fer­ti­lity journey, in­form you about your op­tions and sup­port you from start to fi­nish.

Th­roug­hout my pro­fes­sional career I have had the pri­vi­lege of ad­vi­sing on se­veral of life’s most im­portant to­pics. But none as im­portant as per­sonal fa­mily plan­ning.

As a mo­ther of two sons, I can com­ple­tely em­pa­thise with the de­sire to have children of ones own — whe­ther that be now or in the fu­ture. More than this, I also un­der­stand what great hap­pi­ness is in­volved in this journey.  Alt­hough, th­rough my circle of fri­ends, I have also clo­sely ex­pe­ri­enced that this path, and its ti­ming, can be a very dif­fi­cult one. Th­rough this I came to un­der­stand the great re­lief and im­portance the right sup­port can play.

At Fer­tilly, I hope to guide you th­rough the maze of in­for­ma­tion on this im­portant topic. By sim­pli­fying the pro­cess for you, tog­e­ther we can plan the next steps in your journey, en­su­ring focus is kept on your per­sonal si­tua­tion. For me, there is not­hing better than kno­wing you are in good hands — whe­ther this be starting an in­fer­ti­lity tre­at­ment or ta­king cer­tain time-pres­sures off you th­rough so­cial free­zing. I am very much loo­king for­ward to get­ting to know you!

For every woman, the de­sire to have children is a journey, and a very in­di­vi­dual one at that. A few years ago, I had my own eggs frozen as a pre­cau­tio­nary me­a­sure and dealt in­ten­si­vely with plan­ning and ever­y­thing that con­cerns the de­sire to have children. From my own ex­pe­ri­ence, I know how im­portant it is to get sup­port along the way: from in­for­ma­tion about the va­rious ex­ami­na­tions and tre­at­ment op­tions to the right clinic and team of ex­perts to suit your par­ti­cular needs.

It is a matter close to my heart to ad­vise you as part of the Fer­tilly team, so that you re­ceive the tre­at­ment that is right for you — ac­com­pa­nied with a large por­tion of em­pathy.

Katrin Förster

From my own ex­pe­ri­ence I know how ur­gent the de­sire to have children can be­come and how time-con­suming it is to gather in­for­ma­tion.

I myself am a solo mo­ther, which means I had my son wi­t­hout a partner with the help of a sperm do­na­tion — and there is no greater hap­pi­ness for me. But it has been a long road, so I can par­ti­cu­larly re­late to the mental chal­lenges that come with the child­bea­ring journey.

I’m so happy to be able to share my ex­pe­ri­ences with Fer­tilly and sup­port you on your child­bea­ring journey. Both with an open ear and with con­crete in­for­ma­tion. Every big de­cision starts with a first step — and I’m happy to help you with that!

In re­cent years, there has been an in­crease in the use of me­di­cally as­sisted re­pro­duc­tion and a con­siderable im­pro­ve­ment in the tre­at­ments of­fered in France. Ho­wever, de­spite the fact that this sub­ject is be­co­ming in­cre­asingly pr­e­va­lent, un­fort­u­na­tely it is still con­sidered a so­ci­ally taboo topic.

This is why I am at your dis­posal, to ac­com­pany you wi­t­hout jud­ge­ment, in all bene­vo­lence and with a lot of em­pathy, along your path to ha­ving a child ab­road. Our con­ver­sa­tions will allow me to un­der­stand your per­sonal needs and wishes as well as pos­sible, so that I can ad­vise the best care suited to you.

I am loo­king for­ward to starting this ad­ven­ture with you!

The journey to pa­ren­thood can be dif­fi­cult and emo­tio­nally chal­len­ging, each journey is unique and de­pends on the goals and needs of that spe­cific person or couple.

My own par­ents had to get help from a fer­ti­lity clinic to con­ceive my sister and I, even if their own journey was in­tense and they ex­pe­ri­enced a lot of worries, they al­ways assured me that they were well in­formed and re­ceived pro­fes­sional, re­spectful and ca­ring sup­port th­roug­hout the pro­cess. Get­ting help from a fer­ti­lity clinic has al­lowed them to rea­lize their dream of ha­ving a fa­mily.

It´s for this re­ason that is par­ti­cu­larly im­portant for me to be able to stand by your side with Fer­tilly and sup­port you in your de­sire to have a child.

Sup­porting the de­sire of women and cou­ples to start a fa­mily is the basis of my pro­fes­sional pro­file. I am a mid­wife by trai­ning and my role at Fer­tilly is to pro­vide ac­ces­sible and per­so­na­lised in­for­ma­tion to im­prove the ex­pe­ri­ence of all people who de­cide to un­dergo fer­ti­lity tre­at­ment.

When people con­sider the pro­cess of starting a fa­mily, they often have a re­laxed pic­ture in mind. Un­fort­u­na­tely, it is often the case that those who wish to have a child face un­ex­pected obs­ta­cles or dif­fi­cul­ties that cause stress and worry. Hel­ping par­ents choose an ap­pro­priate and in­di­vi­dua­lised path is what con­nects me, as a mid­wife, to the goal of Fer­tilly and the partner cli­nics we work with.

On the Fer­tilly team, I also bring an in-depth un­der­stan­ding of the fun­da­mental prin­ci­ples of wo­men’s and cou­ples’ he­alth. I will pro­vide you with the in­for­ma­tion you need to make an in­formed de­cision about which path is best for you and your needs.

My goal here at Fer­tilly is to sup­port, with pro­fes­sio­na­lity and em­pathy, all those who wish to fulfil their de­sire to be­come par­ents: from he­te­ro­se­xual cou­ples to those formed by women, as well as women wi­t­hout part­ners.

In Italy the topic of re­pro­duc­tive he­alth, as well as that of in­fer­ti­lity, are very often taboo sub­jects and about which there is little in­for­ma­tion: every woman and every couple has the right to be able to know and above all cle­arly un­der­stand what op­tions are available to them.

You will the­r­e­fore find me available for every need and at your side every step of the way: I’m loo­king for­ward to mee­ting you and of­fe­ring ever­yone my sup­port du­ring this chal­len­ging journey!

In Italy most people still talk about in­fer­ti­lity in a very su­per­fi­cial way, as if be­co­ming par­ents were so­me­thing to take for granted. Ho­wever, ho­ping for a child and ex­pe­ri­en­cing the strug­gles of con­cei­ving can be a painful and stressful ex­pe­ri­ence. In most cases, those who find them­selves in this cir­cum­s­tance do not find the sup­port and at­ten­tion they need to em­bark on and pursue a fer­ti­lity journey. Kno­wing that they can count on pro­fes­sional and em­pa­thetic sup­port can re­ally make a dif­fe­rence, also in terms of out­comes.

Of­fe­ring sup­port at all stages of the fer­ti­lity journey and fos­te­ring the se­re­nity and awa­re­ness needed to cope with it in the best pos­sible way, is what I do at Fer­tilly. As a spe­cia­lised coun­sellor for Ita­lian pa­ti­ents and as a mid­wife, I ac­com­pany cou­ples and single women who wish to con­ceive. By of­fe­ring safe and in­formed sup­port and a space where one feels wel­come, can re­solve doubts and re­ceive per­so­na­lised in­for­ma­tion. I help pa­ti­ents over­come the sense of dis­ori­en­ta­tion that arises from dif­fi­cul­ties ob­tai­ning a com­plete pic­ture on the sub­ject of in­fer­ti­lity and its pos­sible so­lu­tions.

I am happy to walk by your side and help you find the most sui­table path to fulfil your dream.

An unful­filled child wish can strike an­yone — and to this day it is still talked about far too little. That’s why I write ar­ticles for Fer­tilly that in­form cou­ples and ac­com­pany them on this path. In ad­di­tion, I want to make this topic more ac­ces­sible to the pu­blic th­rough our so­cial media chan­nels.

It took my hus­band and I three years be­fore our big wish came true. Thanks to ICSI, we are now proud par­ents and truly un­der­stand the fee­lings and per­spec­tives of cou­ples with unful­filled child wishes. An­o­ther re­ason why Fer­tilly is so im­portant to me.

A busi­ness en­ter­prise with a high so­cial pur­pose. That is Fer­tilly! We are pio­neers in the field of Fem­Tech and give our voice to an issue that has (un­fort­u­na­tely) been stig­ma­tised until now: the de­sire to have children! It is un­speakably ful­fil­ling for me to pro­vide my voice and know-how for our mis­sion.

Many “first times”, al­ways ex­ci­ting chal­lenges and at the same time the good fee­ling of ac­com­panying people in what is per­haps the most im­portant topic of their lives — the wish for a child. Our team shows many facets around the topic of wan­ting a child, so that a very unique spirit emerges from it. Hel­ping to shape this spirit and sup­porting the team as it grows is my per­sonal why.

The mea­ning be­hind the work has al­ways been of great im­portance to me when choo­sing a career path. Since joi­ning Fer­tilly, I have be­come acu­tely aware of just how many people are af­fected by un­wanted child­less­ness. Fer­tilly sup­ports these in­di­vi­duals du­ring this dif­fi­cult time and it is a great fee­ling to be part of such a great team.

Step by step, I work my way th­rough the mass of in­for­ma­tion that al­ready exists on this topic, by eva­lua­ting and sum­ma­ri­sing it into an ea­sily di­ges­tible format for the reader. With my work, I hope to pro­vide an over­view of this emo­tional topic and bring rea­ders closer to ful­fil­ling their own wish to have children.

After com­ple­ting my stu­dies in li­te­ra­ture, media sci­ence and psy­cho­logy, I have pur­sued a career as a self-em­ployed on­line editor working for, amongst others, Spiegel On­line (SPON). At Fer­tilly I write me­dical and psy­cho­lo­gical ad­vice ar­ticles about fer­ti­lity, as­sisted re­pro­duc­tion and pregnancy.

Th­rough this ap­proach, I would like to ac­com­pany cou­ples on the hop­eful and beau­tiful, but also chal­len­ging journey th­rough their child wis­hing years. It is a matter close to my heart not only to im­part well-founded know­ledge, but also to sup­port cou­ples in their ex­cep­tional emo­tional si­tua­tion.

Wri­ting is my great pas­sion. I have been working in the media for over twenty years and have the pri­vi­lege of ap­p­lying my know­ledge and ex­pe­ri­ence from a wide va­riety of fields to my wri­ting. I am the author of two child­ren’s yoga books and a well-known ex­pert th­roug­hout Ger­many, espe­ci­ally in the field of pa­rent-child yoga. As a mo­ther of a teenage daughter, I know how ful­fil­ling it is to watch a child grow up. In this re­spect, I am very happy to sup­port the edi­to­rial team at Fer­tilly. I write ar­ticles in the sec­tions on as­sisted re­pro­duc­tion, hor­mones, se­xua­lity, fer­ti­lity and pregnancy that are qua­li­fied, in­for­ma­tive and sci­en­ti­fi­cally based.

In doing so, I al­ways keep the human being in mind. In this re­spect, when I write, I try to speak to the cou­ples in front of me who are em­bar­king on their journey to ful­fil­ling their long-che­rished de­sire to have children. They de­serve my re­spect and em­pathy.
