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 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.

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.

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.

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

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

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.

In re­cent years in France, there has been an in­crease in the use of MAP and a con­si­derable im­pro­ve­ment in the tre­at­ments of­fered. However, de­s­pite the fact that this sub­ject is get­ting ex­tre­mely re­le­vant, it is un­for­tu­n­a­tely still con­si­dered a so­cietal taboo.

This is why I am at your dis­posal to ac­com­pany you wi­thout jud­ge­ment, in all ben­evo­lence and with a lot of em­pathy, along your pro­ject of ha­ving a child ab­road. Our ex­ch­anges will allow me to un­der­stand your needs and wishes as well as pos­sible, and I will then be able to ad­vise you on the best care suited to your pro­ject.

I am loo­king for­ward to star­ting this ad­ven­ture with you!

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 (Italy)

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!

In Italy the ma­jo­rity of people still talk about in­fer­ti­lity in a very su­per­fi­cial way, as if be­co­ming par­ents was so­me­thing to take for granted. On the con­trary, wis­hing for a child and ex­pe­ri­en­cing the im­pos­si­bi­lity of con­cei­ving it is a painful and stressful ex­pe­ri­ence and, 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.

In this con­text, knowing that they can count on pro­fes­sional and em­pa­thic sup­port can re­ally make a dif­fe­rence, also in terms of re­sults. Of­fe­ring sup­port at all stages of their journey, 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, in fact, I ac­com­pany cou­ples and single women who wish to do so, of­fe­ring them safe and in­formed sup­port and a space where they can feel wel­come, re­solve doubts and re­ceive per­so­na­lised in­for­ma­tion. Hel­ping pa­ti­ents to over­come that sense of dis­ori­en­ta­tion linked to the dif­fi­culty of ob­tai­ning a com­plete pic­ture of the sub­ject of in­fer­ti­lity and its pos­sible so­lu­tions.

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

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.
