Lead Medical Director Aban Kadra said since the move 1,000 new patients had registered with the clinic and 781 IVF treatments were carried out. Of those, 210 resulted in pregnancies.
Miss Kadra said it was “absolutely thrilling” to see couples come in with their babies after successful treatment.
“They do bring their babies in and send cards and pictures. We always ask for parents to give us feedback,” she said.
