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.

Chief Com­mer­cial Of­ficer

Ca­milla Rando

For many years I have been de­aling with the topic of “wan­ting a child” and I know from my own ex­pe­ri­ence that it is not al­ways as pre­dic­table as one might wish. In the past ten years, I have ac­com­pa­nied many women on their way to ha­ving a child — an often not so easy path.

My great wish is to live in a so­ciety where ever­yone re­ceives the best pos­sible sup­port on their path to ha­ving a child, com­ple­tely in­de­pen­dent of gender, ma­r­ital status, age or se­xua­lity. I would like to see more in­clu­si­vity, more to­le­rance and more sup­port at all le­vels, as well as an opened ex­change.

At and with Fer­tilly, I want to de­stig­ma­tize, edu­cate and show pos­si­bi­li­ties — and thanks to di­gi­ta­liz­a­tion and a team of lea­ding ex­perts across Eu­rope, make the path a little ea­sier and more trans­pa­rent. Be­cause what I re­ally know for sure, no one is alone with this issue and should never feel that way.

Be­fore I started at Fer­tilly in 2022, over 1,000 ba­bies have al­ready been born with our help. I hope that with me there will be many more.…

The topic of “wan­ting a child” is om­ni­pre­sent and has often preoc­cu­pied me in my pri­vate en­vi­ron­ment. Due to my German-In­dian roots I grew up fa­mily-ori­ented from an early age on. Un­for­tu­n­a­tely, I still had to rea­lize that people too often keep quiet about pro­blems and that there is too little mu­tual trans­pa­rency and open­ness. It is the­re­fore all the more im­portant to cul­ti­vate a trus­ting and em­pa­thetic ap­proach on this in­ti­mate topic.

Working with people has given me great plea­sure since child­hood. This is also re­flected in my ca­reer to date: I worked as a pa­ra­medic par­allel to my psy­cho­logy stu­dies. The well-being of the people around me is par­ti­cu­larly im­portant to me — it ful­fils me to sup­port others in their worries and to be able to offer help and ad­vice. For this re­ason, I am very happy to be part of the Fer­tilly team and to be there for you and your de­sire to have children.

Ever­yone is unique and has their own history and the­re­fore their own ideas about wan­ting children. It is im­portant to me to re­spond in­di­vi­du­ally to the wishes and con­cerns of women and cou­ples, to in­form and ad­vise them about all the op­tions avail­able on the sub­ject of wan­ting a child.
My per­sonal wish to have children was ful­filled for the first time in 2016. I appre­ciate the luck I have every day. That’s why I want to help as many people as pos­sible to ex­pe­ri­ence this fee­ling of hap­pi­ness too.
After more than a year of pa­rental leave, I am happy to be a member of the Fer­tilly team again and will be happy to help you with all your ques­tions and con­cerns about ha­ving children.

Pa­tient Care Ad­visor (Ger­many)

Chris­tina Bauer

The de­sire to have children is one of the most na­tural wishes of all — which is why a trans­pa­rent and ho­listic ad­vi­sement 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 through my trai­ning as a phar­maceu­tical tech­ni­cian, I would like 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 ad­vise you com­pre­hen­si­vely about all the op­tions pos­sible, but I will also stand by your side in dif­fi­cult si­tua­tions and be an emo­tional sup­port throughout your journey. That is our main goal at Fer­tilly. I am very happy that I can give you my full at­ten­tion through my work at Fer­tilly, and thus be part of edu­ca­ting and al­lowing of trans­pa­rency when it comes to wan­ting a child.

Ful­fil­ling your de­sire to have a child with me­dical sup­port can be a com­plex matter. It can be a com­plex matter in which you want sup­port. Not only pro­fes­sio­nally, but also emo­tio­nally. And above all, wi­thout ta­boos. It is a great per­sonal de­sire of mine to sup­port my pa­ti­ents in every aspect until they be­come par­ents. I not only want to show you all the pos­si­bi­li­ties for ful­fil­ling your de­sire to have a child, but also to find the best way for you and tog­e­ther find the most sui­table clinic.

When cou­ples or sin­gles tackle the topic of in­fer­ti­lity tre­at­ment, there are count­less sources of un­cer­tain­ties and ques­tions that can arise.

As a trained oc­cup­a­tional the­ra­pist, I bring em­pathy and un­der­stan­ding to all my pa­ti­ents and follow a pa­tient-centred ap­proach. In the per­sonal con­sul­ta­tion with you, I will re­spond pre­cisely to your in­di­vi­dual si­tua­tion and give you the space you need to be able to ask all your ques­tions. I would like to ac­com­pany you on this emo­tional journey and make the first steps on the way to ha­ving a child as com­for­table as pos­sible. I am very happy to be able to con­tri­bute to Fertilly’s ef­forts to bring more at­ten­tion to this topic.

Un­for­tu­n­a­tely, in France, women and cou­ples are mis­sing emo­tional and me­dical sup­port to ac­com­plish their de­sire to have a child. And it re­mains a taboo, so it is dif­fi­cult to turn to fa­mily or friends – or so­me­times even to some me­dical teams — to ob­tain va­lu­able in­for­ma­tion and to make de­cisions. One can feel ea­sily a bit iso­lated. Ho­ping sin­ce­rely that things will evolve in a much more a po­si­tive way in our fu­ture, towards more freedom and equa­lity in me­di­cally as­sisted re­pro­duc­tion, I will be fully com­mitted to hel­ping you in your pro­ject in Eu­rope.

And, after a de­cade of working with children, I be­lieve I be­came a good and very em­pa­thic lis­tener. With me, your wishes will be taken into ac­count, with all my at­ten­tion and sup­port.

In my opi­nion, the road to pa­ren­t­hood is still full of pit­falls. Me­di­cally as­sisted re­pro­duc­tion is a very in­ti­mate topic that must be dis­cussed wi­thout any ta­boos.

Alt­hough tre­at­ments like as­sisted re­pro­duc­tion are ac­ces­sible to an­yone and ever­yone, it is so­me­times dif­fi­cult to find the re­le­vant in­for­ma­tion. That’s why I take the time to listen to you in a friendly way and dis­cuss all the op­tions avail­able to you in order to find the best so­lu­tion for you.

Ta­boos around me­di­cally as­sisted pro­crea­tion are still very pre­sent in France, even though con­si­derable pro­gress has been made in this re­gard over the last few de­cades. It is a journey that is often feared, as it can be long and dif­fi­cult. However, it is the key to hap­pi­ness for many cou­ples and single women. My name is  Adé­laïde, my mis­sion is to ac­com­pany you in your pro­ject, by brin­ging you the com­fort, the lis­tening, and the ligh­ting ne­cessary for it. I per­so­nally con­sider it es­sen­tial for women to have ac­cess to high-qua­lity tre­at­ments: this is the spirit with which I will guide you towards be­co­ming par­ents.

The pro­blem of in­fer­ti­lity is more tren­ding than ever, but is still not suf­fi­ci­ently dis­cussed and treated. Alt­hough the dif­fi­cul­ties of get­ting pregnant na­tu­rally are spread wide, it is still ra­rely talked about.

At Fer­tilly, I try to offer my sen­si­ti­vity and pro­fes­sio­na­lism to ac­com­pany pa­ti­ents on a very ex­ci­ting path lea­ding to pa­ren­t­hood.

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

In­fer­ti­lity and the de­sire to start a fa­mily are dif­fi­cult mat­ters — espe­cially when faced with ob­sta­cles and not knowing where to turn to over­come them.

I per­so­nally be­lieve that ever­yone should have the op­por­tu­nity to be sup­ported and guided in such an im­portant pro­cess wi­thout fee­ling judged or un­com­for­table.

That is why I am avail­able to help you find the path that is best for you, de­pen­ding on your needs and de­sires. I am here to ac­com­pany you as best I can on your unique and unf­or­gett­able journey to create your fa­mily.

Roberta Maratta
Pa­tient Care Ad­visor (Italy)

Ro­berta Mar­atta

Pro­mo­ting the de­sire of women and cou­ples to start a fa­mily is the basis of my pro­fes­sional pro­file. I am a mid­wife and my role is to pro­vide ade­quate and per­so­na­lized in­for­ma­tion to im­prove the ex­pe­ri­ence of all those people who de­cide to un­dergo fer­ti­lity tre­at­ment.

When people think of 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 in­di­vi­dua­lized 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 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.

Pa­tient Care Ad­visor

Mar­tina Furia

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 un­der­stand clearly 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!

As so­cial media ma­nager, it is my pas­sion to por­tray in­for­ma­tion and facts as simply as pos­sible as well as get people ex­cited about a topic. What better topic could there be than the de­sire to start a fa­mily and have children? Fer­tilly gives me the op­por­tu­nity to give free rein to my crea­ti­vity and be able to have my own im­pact on sup­por­ting sin­gles and cou­ples in fer­ti­lity journey.

Here at Fer­tilly, we have the unique op­por­tu­nity to help shape our so­ciety of to­morrow and to find mo­dern so­lu­tions for an old yet fa­mi­liar topic that will al­ways re­main re­le­vant: The de­sire to have children and fa­mily plan­ning. As in most areas of life, many things have changed here and are con­stantly evol­ving.  We help our pa­ti­ents to take issue into their own hands by pro­vi­ding in­for­ma­tion and ad­vice.

As part of our Busi­ness De­ve­lo­p­ment team and with my me­dical back­ground, I focus on in­ternal pro­cesses to best sup­port pa­ti­ents on their journey.

It is very im­portant to me that every person can lead a self-de­ter­mined life. This also in­cludes being able to fulfil their de­sire to have children. For this re­ason, I am proud to be part of the “Fer­tilly” team.

In the area of Pro­duct Ma­nage­ment, I make sure that ever­ything runs smoothly. The hu­mane aspect of my work is most im­portant to me, also as­su­ring that ever­ything runs to the sa­tis­fac­tion of our pa­ti­ents.

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 me three years until our big wish came true. Thanks to ICSI, we are now proud par­ents and can very well un­der­stand the fee­lings and per­spec­tives of cou­ples with unful­filled child wishes. One more re­ason why “Fer­tilly” is so im­portant to me.

When choo­sing a ca­reer path, the me­a­ning be­hind the work is most im­portant to me. Since joi­ning “Fer­tilly”, I have rea­lized how many people are af­fected by un­wanted child­less­ness. “Fer­tilly” sup­ports them 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 about that topic, eva­luate it and sum­ma­rize it in an un­der­stand­able way 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 my stu­dies of li­te­ra­ture, media sci­ence and psy­cho­logy, I started my self-em­ploy­ment as an on­line editor in 2009, among others for Spiegel On­line (SPON). At “Fer­tilly” I write me­dical and psy­cho­lo­gical ad­vice ar­ti­cles about fer­ti­lity, as­sisted re­pro­duc­tion and pregnancy.

With 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.
