At King’s Fertility we always look for opportunities to increase awareness of fertility. By showcasing what happens behind the doors of a fertility clinic, we felt that we could help people understand the work and dedication required of both our patients and staff in their effort to create families. Through highlighting the medical and emotional toll of those who try to conceive through fertility treatment, we aim to remove any stigma associated with fertility and to promote continued awareness and education, along with public engagement. Our hope is that this helps to further the debate regarding the need for equitable access to fertility services and general fertility education.
The decision to work with UKTV on this series was not taken lightly. Alex had opened up about her own struggle with fertility back in 2016, so we knew this was a subject close to her heart. From our very first meeting it was clear that Alex would be highly empathetic towards our patients and that the crew would be similarly sensitive during filming. Transparency, honesty and passion are hallmarks of Alex’s character. We knew that we could trust her to shine a light on the field of fertility and to help further the conversation.

Well done Anastasia, and the team at KCH! Great episode.
Another fantastic episode, excellent work King’s Fertility
This series is fascinating!
So many people think embarking on IVF is exciting and pregnancy is guaranteed. This programme really shows how difficult the journey is for both patients and partners. We wouldn’t have our miracle boy without IVF. Thank you Alex and King’s Fertility for showing the reality of IVF 💙
Amazing act of kindness ❤ well done Fleur and anyone else who donates their eggs
What a fantastic series 👏 … I watched every episode with my 6 month old boy 👦 who was born thanks to IVF 💉 #NHS 💙
I’m loving the series. After 6 rounds of IVF at Harley Street & being lucky, I’m seeing all that goes on in clinics and behind the scenes. When you’re in the IVF zone, you just don’t take it all in. Amazing work, such talented peolple xx
Have absolutely loved watching these. Having had 7 IVF treatments myself and now as a fertility nutritionist, this was a must watch and @alexjonesthomson did amazing!
Love watching, brings back so many memories 💙 when we went through IVF and had our boy Kayden, who will be 9 this year xx
