Why IVF at Zita West
Our Unique Holistic Approach to IVF
We are proud of our excellent results and we put these down to our unique approach to IVF which we believe is quite different from that of other, more traditional IVF centres.
Couples can come directly to see our doctors for IVF but we always suggest that they have an appointment with Zita, Anita or Jane first as we can come up with a holistic plan that looks at your nutrition, lifestyle and psychological/emotional aspects, all of which can impact on IVF success.
We excel in three areas: –
- Firstly, our holistic approach to IVF. When you use our programme (which can be used individually or as a package) you are making sure that you are preparing in every way – nutritionally, emotionally, psychologically and integrating it with the best of medical science. Our clients like this approach as IVF is very medicalised and the fact that we take time to look at all the other aspects of their nutrition and lifestyle that can impact on their chances of success gives them confidence that they have ‘ticked all the boxes’
- The second thing we excel in is helping and understanding why IVF fails. Our Medical Director, Dr George Ndukwe, world specialist in IVF failure and failed implantation consults with our clients and comes up with an individualised treatment plan.
- Finally, the third thing we excel in is the exceptional nursing team who clients really value, not only for their medical attention but also for their kindness, support and hand holding they give and this is reflected in the lovely emails we regularly receive from our clients.
We see so many women that have unsuccessful IVF cycles with other clinics who become pregnant with us using this unique approach.
“Based on your answers to our uniquely comprehensive fertility questionnaire, our experienced team can identify even the smallest areas of potential weakness in you or your partner’s fertility status and propose a step by step action plan”
New for 2018
Don’t Live Near London?
If you live a long way from London, you can now choose to have the most important elements of your treatment with us here in London (consultations, egg collection and embryo transfer, doctor and nurse support etc) but some or all of the scans and tests you’ll need as part of it done, closer to home, at one of our new partner IVF centres around the UK. All the tests and scans will be done under our supervision and we’ll analyse and review the results and manage your treatment just the same and just as quickly as if you’d had them done in London.
The service is entirely optional and you can have as many, or as few, of your scans and tests done at your local centre as you like. There’s no difference in cost to you wherever you choose to have them. But with an average of 3 to 4 monitoring scans and 6 to 8 blood tests per cycle between egg collection and embryo transfer alone, having some of this done closer to home could add up to a good deal of time and money (and hassle) saved on travel and accommodation. The service is available at all CARE Fertility centres in the UK outside London: Birmingham, Manchester, Northampton, Nottingham, Sheffield, Tunbridge Wells. If this might be of interest to you just mention it during your initial consultation and we’ll tell you more.
Our Medical Experts
Your IVF cycle will be medically managed by our doctors, George, Simone and Andrina. All consultations and scans take place at our clinic in Manchester Street and egg collection and embryo transfers will be carried out by our doctors at the nearby HFEA licensed clinic, CARE London. All embryology, including storage of embryos, eggs and sperm is done at CARE London too.
What else makes us different?
Before we started IVF we asked many women what they wanted from an IVF clinic. The answers we received were, an individualised approach rather than a one size fits all formula; answers as to what they can do to improve their chances of IVF success; time in consultations and not to feel rushed; doctors and staff to know who they are; positivity, kindness, advice and support; access to the nurses and answers to their questions as they go through the process; and to know which complementary therapies may help them during the process.
I believe we tick all of these boxes.

Nutrition and Lifestyle Assessment
We believe that Nutrition is such an important aspect that impacts on IVF success that we offer all our IVF clients a free nutrition and lifestyle consultation from which we develop a nutritional and lifestyle plan of action.
Emotional and Psychological Support
Going through IVF can be challenging and stressful in lots of respects, yet so many clinics seem to place little emphasis on providing support for their client’s emotional and psychological well-being during their time with them. The medical aspect are of course important but the psychological aspects can be equally important.
By contrast, we’re ardent believers in the importance of the right emotional support and the contribution this can make to success rates. Which is why we have specifically created a small and dedicated team to work intensively, and in a highly personalised way, with each and every one of our clients, to hold your hands, literally and metaphorically, answering your questions and keeping you as positive and motivated as possible, every step of the way.
