What our clients say...
I became aware of Emma, like most people, as the prospect of NHS treatment started to fade and the search for a new private path began.
Having read Emma's free and easy to digest content, my husband and I were relived and excited that the reality our budget meant we could afford a clinic abroad as we were out priced for the UK based on our needs.
In Feb 2023 So we pinged Emma an email and fast forward to November 2023 we have received our positive test result having undergone a round of donor treatment in Spain.
The clinic we chose was perfect for us and the week we had whilst undergoing treatment was incredibly relaxing at a time where anxiety was high. Dare we say we had a wonderful time.
The process itself over those months was stripped back of all the unnecessary stress (no IVF journey can be 100% stress free) but Emma removed all the unwanted hassle and headache. She guided, reassured, organised, delegated and stayed one step ahead of us all the way.
We can’t recommend her enough and fully benefited from her 1-2-1 service will follow up monthly support.
Her knowledge and experience is incredibly valuable in a process where sometimes the patients need someone advocating for them.

We can’t thank Emma enough for finding us our Clinic as it was a mind field trying to decide on one ourselves. She was such a good help and found us the perfect clinic match. So for that we will be forever grateful.
From a very happy pregnant couple Becky and Jamie.

We had tried IVF in the UK a couple of times without success and our clinic suggested we consider egg donation abroad. This felt really daunting and we didn’t know where to start. Luckily, we came across Emma who helped us all the way.
Emma took the time to understand what we wanted and helped us choose a suitable clinic, answering all our questions, and even helping us get our medication in the UK. We were able to control costs and, using Emma’s experience, made sure we only paid for what we needed which was much cheaper. The fact she has been through fertility treatment herself, allows her to offer informed advice and comfort when it all feels a bit too much. Without Emma, a difficult process would have been even more stressful and I doubt we would have felt confident enough to go ahead. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Emma to anyone considering IVF abroad.
K and L
The course made sure that we thoughts about all the practical aspects of doing IVF abroad. This was great for us. She was also able to support and deal with the emotional issues that we might encounter.
We went into the planning for our IVF with our eyes open and prepared.
I would recommend Emma and her services and in particular her course to anyone that is thinking about start IVF abroad.
She is great. So helpful, kind and generous with her time.
Thank you Emma for making me feel ready to walk this crazy IVF road.

We had been trying to conceive for some time but were unsuccessful. Tests revealed that both of us had a less than average chance of conceiving naturally – obviously we were devastated. We were not eligible for IVF on the NHS and the cost of private clinics in the UK were prohibitive.
Laura listened to a podcast where Your IVF Abroad was being discussed and she immediately became excited. Ben was sceptical – the logistics would be too challenging, clinics would be unregulated, it would end up costing too much. But we really didn’t know where to start or what to look for.
The initial consultation with Emma allayed a lot of these fears. She explained the process and what she would do – a fact find from ourselves about what we wanted revealed a choice of three different clinics. We had video consultations with two of them and found a clinic which seemed like the ideal choice.
Emma then explained what would happen next – the tests we would need to book, the medical we would need, the logistics of a trip out there and what would happen abroad. We definitely couldn’t have done this without her help and we are excited about where our journey goes next…
Laura and Ben
We've had two rounds of IVF in the UK and knew we wanted to go abroad for our next round. We had no idea where to start - a quick Google search will have your head spinning!
Knowing what IVF entails, going abroad for treatment felt very daunting. You want to ensure you're going to a safe and reputable clinic, working with Emma covers that for you. This is a big decision and one we now feel completely confident in because of Emma's help. She helped to explain the process step-by-step and match us with a clinic that fit our specific needs. We’re looking forward to starting treatment soon.
Working with her felt like working with a friend who gets it. She listens, she's supportive, she's quick to respond, all things you want when going through this journey. Emma's expertise is worth every penny. I would recommend her to anyone looking to have IVF treatment abroad. The confidence and comfort she will bring is so worth it.

Emma is a godsend
I had the pleasure to work with Emma on my journey to start my family. As you can imagine this was a very tough, strange and difficult time and process. Emma made it easy and straight forward. I had very specific requirements on my needs from a clinic and Emma was able to find clinics that met my needs. Emma was always available when I had questions (which were a lot and frequent) and she was easy to talk to and addressed concerns straight on. I would recommend Emma to anyone looking to use IVF Clinics in Europe to start their families.
Thank you, Emma, for your support and tenacity.
I was thinking back to where I was at the start of the donor embryo journey and how hard it was to navigate alone!
In the UK there isn’t a lot of help and it’s not something that is widely talked about!
My sister encouraged me to look abroad and I knew of a couple of people that had used clinics abroad so started the initial Google searches, I had honed in quite early on Spain as I felt a connection with it as was where my husband and I met and I also am a fan of the Mediterranean culture.
But you begin searching and then suddenly there are so many clinics to choose from. I arranged 3 consultations which we paid for but even though they had gone well we still felt so clueless about the process and sometimes navigating the language was difficult! I remember one asking me if I had done the karotyping test and I had absolutely no idea what she was talking about! That’s when we turned to Emma!
The clinic match and treatment service really helped us to pick a clinic and having Emma’s guidance and support was so helpful! Also many of the clinics that Emma introduces you to are able to offer a free consultation!
We decided on our clinic which going through Emma were able to offer a discount on the cost of our fertility treatment.
We are still on our fertility journey and Emma has been a constant support along the way. I would thoroughly recommend Your IVF abroad, if you are feeling overwhelmed and confused, Emma can really help!
Emma was great for us including in the early planning stages of what we thought was a crazy idea of going abroad to do IVF. In our early call and consultation she really put our mind at ease that this wasn’t that crazy and reaffirmed the benefits of exploring an option in Europe in our circumstance. We were presented with three clinic choices which Emma thought met our needs and she arranged for consultations with our preferred two. After we made our choice she made sure they were aware of what we needed. The clinic we chose based on the shortlist were amazing and can’t thank them enough. Our experience has been brilliant. Thanks Your IVF abroad!
After many years of trying to get support via the NHS & private clinics in the UK, and repeatedly being told no, we were at the end of the road with nowhere to turn. The disappointment, frustration and lack of support really took its toll - until we discovered Emma.
Finally we felt listened to, supported and provided with much needed hope. We had options! It was so incredibly helpful to have someone at the end of an email, message or call who understood and could talk us through the process of IVF abroad - something we were previously so overwhelmed with.
Although our first round was unsuccessful, we don’t regret a thing and wouldn’t have been able to do it without Emma’s unwavering support and concern. Knowing she was there to answer my random and irrational questions, to provide us invaluable tips and tricks, and generally be a friend, made it all the more manageable.
We’re now undertaking round two with optimism and focus. Thank you Emma ❤️
Hayley and Josh
My partner and I had started the IVF process in Scotland but were starting to face some challenges. And they were mounting up... Not qualifying for NHS care because of both my 'over the limit' BMI and my partner's existing children, long travel to appointments from our rural home and long waiting times for donor eggs... as second relationship, older (just into our 40s... not THAT old...) individuals we were starting to think we'd simply missed our chance at having a family together. In desperation I was scrolling through Instagram, and feeling every bit of why they call it 'doom scrolling', when I saw a post of Emma's that someone had shared. It intrigued me and so I signed up for Emma's free Facebook sessions to find out more.
Very quickly my partner and I decided that IVF abroad was the answer, and signed up with Emma. What a transformation! Within hours we felt heard, cared for and supported. Emma listened to what we needed help with (and didn't), offered practical advice and put together our tailored shortlist of clinics. She took the organisational logistics away so we could focus on making the right decisions and weathering the emotional storms.
Throughout the process Emma was right there when we needed her - not least with trying to find locations for tests and scans on specific dates in rural Scotland. But most importantly, when things got harder (as we found out more about the physical challenges I had) Emma was our number one cheerleader, reminding us that it could be done and that we were in the best hands. As I write this I'm finally post-FET and in the very, very early stages of pregnancy... We're keeping everything crossed and just starting to dream... but know, if we need her, Emma is right there to help and support us.
Your IVF Abroad isn't just a game-changer. It's a life-changer.
We had been trying for a family for 10 years without success. We had been referred to NHS but because of PCOS weight gain they were unable to assist and simply told us to eat less and move more - if only it were that simple! We had no idea what to do next and muddled along for 5 years just at a loss until we found Emma on Instagram. Emma advised that she was able to work with us and listened to our story. Emma matched us with three clinics and we chose to work with one in Spain. We are currently in the first stages of our proposed treatment plan and everything is going to plan and there is for the first time in a long time light at the end of the tunnel. I can't rate Emma highly enough - she knows her stuff and is happy to assist with even the silliest of questions. She is professional, compassionate and has given us the confidence to jump back on the journey guiding us into the capable hands of the Spanish experts. Emma is a real life angel who has turned our lives around - there is now hope and we never thought that we would ever get to this stage. Going abroad at first seemed scary but in Spain we feel comfortable and at ease. We only wish that we had found Emma years ago! If you are sitting on the fence like we were to begin with, get off the fence and contact Emma.
Tracey and Kenny
In happy news, our baby boys were born on 12th August and we are incredibly grateful.
Thank you so much for all your help and support in getting us to this point. It’s been a long old journey with a lot of tears along the way, but here we are with two healthy babies. It’s more than we could have asked for.
A million thank you's.
Nikki (and Paul and the twins)
Working with Emma has been an transformative experience for us. We have been supported, shown empathy, gently encouraged, listened to, respected and emboldened. Emma has a unique and wide range of knowledge and understanding of the complex and overwhelming undertaking that is fertility treatment abroad. We would simply not have taken this huge change to go abroad for our treatment without her guidance. Thank you Emma for everything.
Ellie and Harry
After struggling with fertility for some time and endlessly waiting on NHS referrals etc. We decided to reach out to Emma who we had been following on socials for some time.
From the moment we reached out, we couldn't have been made to feel any more comfortable, supported and like a weight was lifting from our shoulders.
We used Emma for two of her services, and would not have got where we are today without her. She made everything feel so simple and effortless.
Emma always made herself available to us, and we knew we could always reach out to her for any advice or guidance, which when navigating having to go abroad for such important treatment, it really reduced our anxiety.
I would recommend Emma to anyone that is navigating through IVF options abroad, her knowledge, experience and kindness is invaluable.
Me and Laura went to our doctors 4 years ago for ivf to be sent away and told to lose roughly 4 and a half stone 😲 Bearing in mind my doctor had never seen anyone about ivf before so she googled it right in front of us, anyway I lost 3 stone and went back got referred had tests and scans to then be told there is nothing wrong with me (fallopian tubes) which is great news but meant we didn't get funding and were told to go home and "try" not sure how being a same sex couple.
We researched clinics in the UK so many bad reviews we didn't know what to do 😧 we were just going to take our chances BUT..
We then joined numerous Facebook ivf support groups and this is when we stumbled upon EMMA 😊
After watching some of her videos we contacted her pretty much straight away booked a consultation.
Emma has changed our lives, we knew going for ivf was going to be hard but wow we absolutely would NOT have been able to this without her at all she has literally helped with everything me and Laura had no clue and we would not have known where to start.
Emma has just been so supportive constantly checking that we're BOTH ok, she has been there for us like you wouldn't believe, she was even on a family holiday and was still emailing and answering questions whilst we were at retrieval stage 💜
The clinics Emma found us all had fantastic reviews even better success rates, the one we chose was perfect for us and we couldn't be happier, They also have been so supportive and friendly and just made our experience 100x better than we could of ever imagined.
Both me and Laura were scared and had our doubts about doing this journey abroad for many reasons but just finding Emma those feelings went away.
We are yet to have frozen transfer just waiting on my next cycle. 🤞 Emma can't guarantee us a baby but what she has done for me and Laura has been above and beyond she is amazing. 100000% would recommend using her services, we couldn't of got where we are without her so we thank you from the very bottom of our hearts.
Brookelyn and Laura
From the moment we discovered we needed IVF, the stress has been enormous. After waiting for our start date for over a year on the NHS, we were continuously delayed until we got a call telling us it would be delayed indefinitely due to covid and staffing.
We looked into going private but the costs in the UK were massive and we worried we may not be able to afford one full round, let alone more if required. IVF abroad sounded like a good option financially but we didn't even know where to begin.
Thankfully, we came across Emma through the BFN podcast and I can confidently say that using her service was the best decision we made. Her clinic match service took the stress out of wading through so many clinics in so many countries, that I wouldn't have even known where to begin.
Thankfully she already found us the perfect clinic and, after our consultation we clicked with the doctor straight away. We are now feeling more relaxed and excited about starting our treatment in 6 weeks time.
We can't recommend enough.
Natalie and Liam
We started trying to conceive just under 6 years ago but growing up with PCOS I knew that it was highly likely that I would struggle, and it wouldn’t be as plain sailing as it seems for others. We both were in our early twenties so there wasn’t a sense of urgency to seek help and due to my high BMI I always knew I wouldn’t be referred to any fertility specialists under the NHS. 3 years ago, I naturally conceived which resulted in an Ectopic pregnancy which subsequently forced me to lose a fallopian tube. Our chances of starting our family which was already low was now hindered even more and knowing that we were unable to receive any help from the NHS meant the realisation hit that waiting for it to happen naturally was now very unlikely and we both quickly felt very lost.
In frustration of not being understood by Dr’s or consultants I joined a PCOS support group on Facebook as it felt great to finally hear stories so similar to mine and that the burden of having not only fertility issues but struggles with weight loss due to PCOS felt easier knowing I was not the only one going through it. It was there that I had seen a post that somebody had used your IVF abroad and how BMI was not the hinderance that it was here in the UK. It sounded too good to be true but after following Emma and Adam on their own page, reading other’s advice and experiences that they were posting and doing some research we both got excited that it was a possibility for us, so in December 2021 I reached out to Emma and asked to arrange a free consultation which they offer as part of their service. She responded quickly and before we knew it, we were sat waiting in the zoom meeting area waiting to connect to her, with butterflies going absolutely crazy in both of our stomachs.
We both joked to Emma that we were as nervous as we would be if we had a job interview, but she completely understood the feeling and instantaneously made us both feel as relaxed as possible. She explained her services and what she can offer as well as explaining her own experience and assured us there would be no pressure to use her services but would love to be able to provide the support to us. It didn’t take us long to both decide her support was essential to us especially knowing that Luke suffers from anxiety and having someone to offer guidance along the route would be a great relief.
Emma found us some clinics that matched our criteria and having options really felt that we still had control over our situation which until this point didn’t really feel like we did. She helped arrange our consultation with our chosen clinic and gave us instructions on to how to prepare for the meeting including what scans, and information we would need to have ready, something we wouldn’t have had a clue about otherwise.
We were both so anxious that everything was seeming so good to be true and were convinced that even though Emma knew exactly what she was doing our clinic would reject us and IVF just wouldn’t be a possibility for us. Our consultation arrived and they quickly confirmed they were very happy to have us on board with them and for the first time in a very long time we felt like a weight had been lifted. The way I can describe it is like getting a breath of fresh air when you’re drowning and it’s all because of Emma and your IVF abroad.
Our journey is not finished yet and we have had some complications along the way (that damn PCOS just doesn’t let up) but Emma has been there every step, willing to jump on a call to just listen to me cry and reassure me and giving advice as and when we need it. It’s very easy to feel alone during infertility and whilst you lean on your partner, talking to Emma was like talking to myself, she knew how it felt, what we were going through and the stresses we both were feeling. I was constantly grateful for Emma to not only check up on me but to also check up on Luke as everyone’s support tended to be towards me and they forget that the partner can be just as overwhelmed. We both have agreed that her gentle approach and empathy has been invaluable.
We cannot thank Emma enough and know that when we finally get the child that we both have longed for, we know it was a possibility because of Emma.
Katie and Luke
After years of trying to find out why we weren’t conceiving naturally, and the worry of what could be wrong with either or both of us, we got very little from our Doctors and the fertility department of the NHS, we then started understanding the level of care (or lack there of) we would look to receive from the NHS and most surprisingly the limitations and costs to obtain fertility support / treatment on the NHS! It’s shockingly bad! And not only that totally differs from one County to the next.
It’s then when we started to then look at success rates, approaches and regulations in Europe for fertility treatment, but as soon as we did it started to spiral into being overwhelmed with information and options, and not knowing how to narrow down our search, this is when we also came across “Your IVF Abroad” and Emma, we started following Your IVF Abroad and watched the videos and blogs and decided that Emma would be the support we needed to understand where we were at, what we needed and a clear understanding of a clear path forward to proceed with fertility treatment outside of the UK.
We had our first fertility treatment just in Athens, Greece, unfortunately we weren’t successful but we will be giving it one more go and just want to say thank you to Emma and the team at Your IVF abroad for all the guidance and support, every message, email or call was answered promptly, very clear, we felt totally supported and it made this daunting process a lot more comfortable to navigate.
Mr and Mrs Smith
Whilst we're were one of the very rare, lucky ones who fell pregnant naturally before having to go through the realms of IVF, I think it's so important to say the help and guidance Emma at IVF abroad gave us during the 5 months run up to our news was invaluable. We approached Emma after we had already found our ideal clinic abroad. We had been searching as we knew we would have to fund IVF privately due to BMI constraints in the UK. We approached Emma, who confirmed she had worked with said clinic many times before and advised she had a package that would mean she could take over the communications and lead the IVF plans.
Emma did just that, when working with companies abroad there can sometimes be a bit of a culture shock where other companies are quite laid back. This isn't against them, but when going through IVF especially in a different country, I want answers and I wanted them yesterday. I never wanted to feel like I was one of thousands on the 'books'. Emma, with her fantastic rapport with the company would get responses in very quick time, and when she wouldn't she would chase.
Another reason using Emma was the best choice we made during our journey, is because when you're going through the realms of IVF for the first time it is scary, unknown and overwhelming. Sometimes you don't feel you can email the clinic for the fifth time to ask another question. But because Emma has taken the time to build a rapport with you and show you that nothing is ever too much, you don't mind emailing her for the fifth/sixth/seventh time in a row with questions you wish to be answered.
Emma was also an emotional support, she had great empathy and obviously deals with each client case by case. Our initial IVF was cancelled due to finding out my husband had a non-related health issue. Emma was professional, empathetic and stood by us even when delays were inevitable.
Whilst I wish everybody would be as lucky as us in regards to not needing IVF, I know that if I find myself in the future requiring treatment, I will certainly go back to Emma & use her again. She made things so much easier, simpler and stress free. I just know, had we headed out abroad she would've been an incredible asset to keeping me calm during the process.
So thank you Emma, honestly from the bottom of our hearts we are eternally grateful for you using your experiences and helping other couples get their happy endings.

Emma at Your IVF Abroad was a huge help in finding us a clinic that matched our needs. Knowing where to start in finding an IVF clinic abroad is nothing short of a minefield.
Emma did an in-depth consultation then came back to us with 3 clinics which suited our needs. Once we had chosen our clinic we went ahead with Emma’s 1-2-1 service where she helped us along the way in booking and arranging appointments/flights/insurance/accommodation.
We had never had any IVF treatment before and knew we needed someone we could call upon if we ever felt overwhelmed or confused in any way about the whole process.
We would highly recommend Emma and Your IVF Abroad to anyone thinking of having IVF treatment overseas.
Lindsay & Aaron
Before we discovered Emma and your ivf abroad, we had spent the previous 6 years trying to navigate treatment through the NHS. We managed to be approved for some help in assisted conception but it soon became clear that IVF was going to be our best option.
Unfortunately, I wouldn’t be eligible due to BMI (that old chestnut) so we decided to go private with a UK clinic. Personally, I found this a very mixed experience. It was a busy, hospital-based clinic and I found things to be quite chaotic and seeing a different nurse/doctor every time made me feel uncomfortable and like I was just getting cookie-cutter IVF and not the personalised service I would have hoped for. Our first cycle was a double 3 day transfer which unfortunately failed. I knew I didn’t want to return to that same clinic and whilst deciding what to do next, I heard Emma on a podcast talking about her business and the options abroad- especially for those with higher BMI’s.
I got in touch almost straight away and luckily Emma had availability to take us on as clients. It was easily the best decision We’ve made in our fertility journey. I had the usual concerns about going abroad.. is it well regulated? How will it work? What are the advantages/disadvantages? All these concerns were immediately eased by Emma in our first consultation and her personal story meant that she understood our concerns perfectly.
We opted for both Emma’s clinic match and treatment services. This took all the worry out of our hands and we were able to have consultations for FREE with 3 clinics (almost unheard of in the UK) and we immediately felt at ease with the clinic we chose. I knew this time things were going to be different and instead of going in with fear and pessimism, we had hope and excitement. I firmly believe that Emma’s help in finding the right clinic for our needs made all the difference and I truly felt like my treatment this time was personalised and considered at every step. Emma was proactive, engaged and committed to her clients- even checking in on holiday to see how we were! Having her on side was such a comfort and we thank her whole heartedly for introducing us to the world of IVF abroad. We are currently 6 weeks pregnant (I still can’t believe I’m writing that) and whilst it’s still early days, I now have the confidence to believe in myself and my body to carry this baby and finally, after 7 years, achieve my dream of becoming a mother. Unfortunately, this is not the feeling I had in the UK- it was a fight all the way and I was made to feel like they were doing ME a favour by agreeing to treat me.
Thank you again Emma and Adam for taking the leap to set up your business because it’s changing lives and making IVF more accessible to those with limited budgets, complex fertility needs or higher BMI’s which is just amazing so keep doing what you are doing and I will be recommending you to anyone who will listen :)
Hayley and Jonathan
From our first conversation with Emma, it was reassuring to see that we had found someone who really understood our journey, not only from the perspective of the process we needed to go through but also the emotions and challenges that went with it. Emma made us feel immediately understood and heard, and that she could really be of assistance.
We used Emma initially for the clinic matching service where she found us three excellent clinics to have initial consultations with. We found one that was perfect for us from this process, and Emma then worked with us as our point of contact when liaising with the clinic. All communication was well handled and we were always well informed about what was happening, and if there were ever any questions we needed answers to, we knew Emma was there to help.
We are now just over 10 weeks pregnant following a successful first attempt at embryo transfer, and over the moon at having seen our little one waving their arms and legs around on an early scan this weekend. We know there is still a long way to go on this journey, but for now all is well and we look forward to the rest of our journey - which has undoubtedly been made easier and less stressful with Emma's help. We would definitely recommend using Emma to anyone who is moving forward with the unknown journey of IVF abroad - and we also feel that no-one should be scared of exploring the option of having treatment overseas. Having experienced private treatment both in the UK and abroad, our experience in Greece was far superior to our experiences in the UK, with the standard of both clinical and wider care being absolutely outstanding.
We had considered travelling abroad for ivf before, when we checked out the prices in the UK but it was an absolute minefield. We got really stressed having a look on the internet, as we didn’t know whether to trust the clinics or not & we soon went back to the plan in the UK. However I saw Ivf Abroad through Instagram & we decided to speak to Emma.
Right from the first consultation with her, we decided to go for it & never once regretted doing so. Emma has been an absolute godsend, she has completely taken the stress away from all the ivf ‘admin’ (it’s a full time job in itself) & kept us on the right track. Emma’s emotional support also has been second to none & our trip to Prague for egg collection went like a dream without any issues. We knew exactly what we needed, when we needed it & this was all down to Emma.
During a time when stress is so high anyway, Emma’s services have taken the stress away and helped us so much. We can never thank her enough.
It’s a scary process looking at getting IVF treatment abroad and I know without Emma helping we wouldn’t have got through it. I would go beyond a recommendation and say that you must have Emma on your side before you even think about committing to IVF treatment in another country. Emma has worked with us day and night and there has never been a time when we haven’t felt 100% reassured by Emma. There is no real way of working through the minefield of IVF treatment but its even harder doing it abroad. Emma took away all of our fears and held our hand through each stage.
My wife and I found the prospect of IVF a daunting one in our home country, let alone abroad so were delighted and relieved to find Emma and IVF Abroad.
We took the 6 week online course which was full of interesting and relevant information, laid out in a way which seemed logical and easy to follow.
Explaining every step and scenario we might come across along our IVF journey and arming us with the information and tools we would need to help us along the way.
Emma is an excellent guide and mentor and our one to one sessions felt comfortable and easy. Her knowledge and experience really inspired confidence. Although my wife and I haven't decided in which direction our journey will take us, we are confident we now have the knowledge and support to get us there.

Emma, thank you so much for your help. This whole process had been really positive and exciting. We feel really well listened to and that we have really received a personal service, from you and the clinics you suggested.
Holly and Keith
We have already done IVF in the UK, and wanted to understand what would be involved if we were to do IVF abroad. Emma's IVF abroad Toolkit workshops were really well structured and full of great information and tips. She's completely demystified IVF abroad for us. We're still considering our next steps but feel like we can make a really well informed decision now.

We had been a rollercoaster of a Journey before starting working with Emma. We had been in the fertility system for 10 years and many a heartache along the way. At times thinking will we ever get an end result! I followed various groups on Social Media and saw a recommendation for Emma. We had considered treatment abroad however felt we could not afford it. I got in touch with Emma and we had a consultation and did not look back! We found working with Emma really beneficial and it took the stress away from remembering appointments and when things needed to be done by. Emma also kept us right in what information was required and when. Emma listened to what we wanted in a clinic and we were surprised at the affordability of cost of the treatment abroad.
Unfortunately our first cycle abroad was unsuccessful however the empathy shown from Clinic has made us still believe there is hope for us. We have decided to work with Emma again as she is amazing at what she does and keeps us right. When emailing Emma she responds quickly even at the weekends and no question asked is a silly question.
Emma is an amazing source to have. She is empathetic, knowledgeable, and communication is key. If anyone has any doubts about going abroad please do not. The clinic we have chosen is fantastic, empathetic, and puts the patient first something the UK lacks. Without Emma’s help we would still be saving to undergo treatment in the UK.
Debra Simpson and Alex Simpson
We found IVF abroad through Google search and it has been the best find to date.
After reading her story we knew we would be heard and cared for. We were not disappointed.
Emma was accommodating and understood our needs. More importantly she listened. Her thorough attention to detail and transparency made us feel safe and at ease. She was responsive and presented great options which we never knew was possible. Her broad education on this matter is next to none and she will be forever the person we recommend to anyone in need of help in what is a difficult and emotional journey. Thanks Emma.
Maz and Dan Sherwood
My wife Kelly and I have been trying for a baby for the last 5 years. In 2017, an NHS consultant diagnosed Kelly with having both PCOS, and a blocked right fallopian tube. The consultant’s only advice for Kelly at the time was “lose weight” and offered no further help until the ‘magic’ 30 BMI threshold was reached. Kelly managed to successfully lose some of the weight, and a private clinic in the UK prescribed us with letrozole which we focused on for around 2 years with little success.
Earlier this year Kelly discovered Emma’s webinars, which was the first time we’d even considered the prospect of having fertility treatment abroad. I have to admit that initially I was very sceptical, “surely other countries can’t do a better job of this than the UK?” I thought on a couple of occasions, but the more we considered and discussed having treatment abroad, the more it made sense for us, so we reached out to Emma.
Emma helped by answering all our initial questions, she put our minds at ease every step of the way, and put us in contact with some fertility clinics that we considered very appropriate for our own circumstances. After initial consultations, we found the perfect clinic for us, and we have now returned from our first round of treatment. Although we don’t yet know the outcome, we nevertheless consider the whole experience to be a success. Throughout the entire process, Emma has quickly responded to all our queries, helped us through all aspects of the logistics, and has always checked up on us throughout the entire process. She has been very generous with her time and always made sure that we are on the right track, even when she was away on holiday! I would highly recommend the services of Emma and IVF Abroad to anyone considering fertility treatment and has run into some of the many obstacles and limitations in the UK.
We started trying for a baby in 2016 and were referred for investigations in 2017. I was diagnosed with PCOS and a right blocked fallopian tube. After being told to lose weight by my NHS consultant before I could have any treatment, I successfully lost some of the weight and decided to seek help from a private facility who were prepared to give me letrazole. We had 10 cycles and it was only when we were nearing the end of cycle 9 we heard about IVF abroad. The idea of going abroad for IVF treatment hadn’t crossed my mind until finding out about Emma’s story and her services. I then began to do my own research and found it to be such a mine field, I did not have the headspace to continue.
I then signed up to Emma’s free webinars, and that’s when I decided Emma and her work would be invaluable to us, and the thought of going abroad for IVF became more of a possibility.
I got in touch with Emma straight away, and the rest seemed to happen quickly. We signed up for both of Emma’s services – clinic match and treatment service, mainly because I wanted the stress taken out of it for me. 5 years down the line with infertility, plus a stressful job meant I really didn’t have the capacity to search IVF clinics in all of Europe!
Emma was invaluable in helping us find the most appropriate clinic, and this alone was worth the fee we paid. She helped us find the perfect clinic for us. Having someone provide expert advice on absolutely everything was exactly what we needed, and she certainly did take the stress out of the process, considering we were booking our flights just weeks after our initial consultation with our chosen clinic.
Emma’s first-hand experience of having treatment abroad has no doubt shaped her business with the personalised approach she takes. I found this to be invaluable and now we are in our two-week wait, she is still keeping in touch with us and helping us along the way. Nothing is too much trouble – she even had her own 2 week holiday and kept in touch!
I would encourage anyone who has the slightest interest in seeking infertility support abroad to use Emma’s services. You will not regret making that decision, I know we would not be here without her!

Meeting with Emma was so helpful. She genuinely understands the difficulties both practically and emotionally of going through IVF and offered wonderful advice and guidance to help me figure out if having treatment abroad is right for us, and if so, what we need to do next. I left feeling armed with the knowledge I needed to feel confident in taking the next steps towards finding a clinic abroad that fits for us - taking into account our history and specialist areas we need, our hopes, our fears (covid and regulations being a big one for me!). Thank you again Emma x
After starting to research donor egg IVF abroad, I came across Emma’s Instagram account. When we had our initial meeting with Emma, she was knowledgeable, professional and I knew that she had been where we were.
Getting married the same year that we were planning IVF abroad and being very daunted by the sheer number of clinic and donor options etc, we chose to fully utilize Your IVF Abroad’s skills and knowledge.
Emma helped us to make some informed decisions, arranged for free consultations with clinics in the Czech Republic, helped direct us to online pharmacies, scans, the list goes on. Her communication was always prompt, even when she was on holiday. This in its self was exactly what I hoped for. Then comes the day before we go and throughout all our treatment… I felt like we worked as a team. In our week of treatment having the person who’s sharing your vital news understand exactly how you feel really shines through.
I have never met Emma, I have emailed her a lot (sorry), but I would sum the experience up by saying it’s like having a friend in the business helping you out, on your side, understanding how you are feeling. We are currently in our two week wait with 2 more embryo’s on deep freeze but, should we every have to do this again, I would 100% want to work with Emma again.

Before having our treatment abroad we weren’t sure what to expect or how to go about getting started. Using IVF Abroad helped remove some of the stress of the IVF process and the unknowns of doing treatment abroad, having someone to talk to that's been through it themselves was invaluable. Emma supported us in making sure we had everything in place to travel during Covid restrictions, was quick to respond to queries (even when our treatment clashed with her holiday!) and was able to answer our many questions. It was a great comfort knowing that if we had any problems there was someone on hand to help us out. Whilst we weren’t successful this time, we couldn’t have asked for more support from Emma and we’ve got the confidence to plan our FET direct with our clinic.

Emma’s experience and knowledge has proved invaluable to us at the start of our donor journey. She spent good time getting to know us and ensuring she fully understood our requirements. Its a real minefield trying to find the correct clinic in the right country. Emma went away and came back with an in-depth study of three potential facilities. She set up a meeting with our preferential clinic offering advice on questions we should be asking. Dealing with someone who has actually been on this journey herself has meant any stupid questions we have had were met with honest and non judgmental answers. Thanks so much Emma and good luck in the future.

Adam and Emma are everything you need to go through IVF. When my husband and I realised that we would continue our IVF journey abroad, we knew we would recruit outside help, but thought we would do one cycle with them until we knew what we were doing. However, their help and support was so invaluable we could never imagine going alone without them, nor want too. We made the decision to proceed with donor IVF, in the height of the Covid-19 pandemic and when the situation and rules were changing daily. The only reason we decided to go for it was because we knew we had Emma's support. We knew we would be alright not matter what, because we had Emma. If you want someone to fight for you she will. If you need someone to get things sorted for you, she will. If you need support she is there. When you don't know who and where to turn to she will get you to where you need to be. They have been there themselves and they just get it. Working with them has been the best decision we have made on our trying to conceive journey and we are now pregnant! Your IVF abroad is worth it's wait in gold. I CANNOT recommend them highly enough.

IVF was a foreign language to us.
Emma’s service is so valuable, it is difficult to put everything on paper. She is with you absolutely every step of the way keeping our minds at ease at every stage whilst we are working towards our dream of starting our family. We got more excited after every call with Emma and at every stage we become more calmer knowing that she is always there to sense check and answer any questions no matter how silly along the way. Emma always ensured we had everything we needed and crossed all the T’s and dotted all the I’s.Emma is the loveliest and most genuine, down to earth, kindest person you will ever meet, and you will want to have her as your best friend for life, not just through this journey. We absolutely highly recommend Emma and Adams services at IVF abroad; you will not get more bang for your buck then with these guys and they will ensure you don’t waste any money unnecessarily. For us they were our angels in disguise.
We cannot wait to keep them updated along the way and introduce our baby to them in 8 months’ time. We cannot thank you enough Emma for all your help, support and guidance. We really couldn’t have done this without you. Thank you. With lots and lots and lots of love.

After doing some basic research on IVF treatment abroad we found it very difficult to know where to start. It was like navigating an overwhelming minefield of information that didn't make any sense. I discovered Emma on Instagram @yourivfabroad and instantly felt the desire to get in touch. Right away I felt very comfortable chatting to Emma and sharing stories which put me at ease at a time where everything felt like a constant worry. The information we received was not only trustworthy, reliable and fully informative, but personal in a way we have never experienced before. There is no doubt that Emma and Adam's experiences are hugely impactful and influence how they approach their business and we are very thankful they were there for us, we would have been completely lost without them. A professional and stress free approach to finding the best IVF clinic to support your personal needs, done with such care and efficiency that cannot be faulted. I feel like I have known Emma for years and cannot imagine how we would have made it to this point without her help.

Emma has been such a great support, from the minute I first met her virtually via a free consultation she made me feel so comfortable and at ease. Emma was very patient with us and took into consideration the many requirements we had and matched us to the perfect clinic for us. Emma carrying out the research on our behalf as such a great help and relieved so much pressure from me. Researching clinics abroad can be so overwhelming, but Emma took this out of our hands and made this stage of the journey stress free and enjoyable. We can't thank her enough.

After discovering the prices of IVF treatment in the UK, we decided to seek out alternative options, which led us to find Your IVF abroad. From the start Emma and Adam provided us with a wealth of knowledge and helped us navigate the many, many clinics and countries that offer IVF. We trusted their suggestions and ended up finding our clinic of choice and hope to start treatment later this year. Without their help we wouldn't have got to where we are now, quite so quickly and painlessly. Thank you both.

We are so grateful to Your IVF abroad for helping us to achieve our dream. Their first hand experience, friendly advice and guidance was an absolute godsend and we wouldn’t have been able to navigate our way through the intricacies of fertility treatment abroad without them. We were shown some of the most reputable clinics in Europe, which helped us in choosing the right clinic for us. We were supported emotionally and practically throughout our journey from organising medication to travel arrangements and sightseeing. If it wasn’t for Your IVF abroad we’d not have our 'Squashy Joshi' here today. I'm so thankful to Emma and Adam for taking the stress out of the process, saving us time and money and helping us to start our family! We can't thank you enough.

Emma is one of life's good ones. Genuine, honest and brilliant at what she does. The support you get working with Your IVF abroad is priceless. On top of the amazing service they give you they save you money off treatment and medication and take no commission from clinics, so you know they are truly on your side. Emma's knowledge is vast and nothing is too much trouble, ever. Communication is prompt and she put me at ease straight away. Emma really cares about her clients and because she has been where I have been she instinctively knew what I needed from her at all times and always over delivered. I can't thank her enough. Without her we would not have found the ideal clinic, who actually said we might not need IVF and now after a procedure are now trying naturally. If we are not successful then we will not hesitate to return to Emma to work with her on the treatment service as it is worth every penny. Do not underestimate how much support like this will help you and your stress levels on this journey.

When we were looking to change clinics and move abroad, my husband and I found it to be a minefield and felt like we were searching for a needle in a haystack. We hadn't had the best experience with clinics and wanted to be certain that the clinic we chose, and importantly the clinic we were handing thousands of pounds worth of savings to, was the right one, especially if going abroad. It was nerve wracking and we had no idea where to start. Emma was super helpful and attentive in listening to our needs and matching us with clinics that specialised in cases like ours.We had consultations with the clinics and were over the moon with them, and we know without a doubt we wouldn't have narrowed it down as easily without the help from Emma. I'd 100% recommend Your IVF abroad to anyone looking to travel overseas for treatment, it helped so much to put us at ease.
