“I would like to try to put into words my fertility experience with Dr Isherwood (and team).
I went to see Dr Isherwood as I have a medical condition which affects my ovaries to the point that I would not be able to conceive without an egg donor.
What first struck me with Dr Isherwood was the warm care of her staff there and her first priority always being my health and crossing off any obstacles that may come up with my condition to be able to successfully sustain a pregnancy. Before we did anything there were referrals to other specialists (Cardiologist, Neurologist) to ensure I could physically carry a child. This made me feel so much more at ease as I didn’t want to just be taken down the path to then have an issues come up too late. I felt very comforted by this.
My husband and I were lucky enough to have a known donor who went through the egg donation process with us. This process was facilitated by Dr Isherwood to fit in around my donor’s and my own work schedules whiles getting our cycles to synchronize.
Our first IVF cycle was unfortunately unsuccessful and obviously quite heart breaking as the egg that was implanted was the only one viable (out the donated 5 that were fertilized).
Our donor agreed to go through another cycle to donate, but upon the preliminary testing it was found that she was unfortunately no longer a viable donor and we were then asked by Dr Isherwood to think if there was anyone else who we knew that could meet the requirements to be a donor or advertise for an unknown donor.
We contacted a friend who fitted the requirements and advised she would donate. We then started this cycle off and again Dr Isherwood again was wonderful in making the necessary appointments on days/times that worked with both the donor’s and my work schedule.
I have been nothing but impressed with the care and dedication of Dr Isherwood and her wonderful team as they have been nothing but thorough, informative, kind, caring, supportive and easy to communicate with. No question has been too difficult or been left unanswered.
I am now pregnant with the first attempt with new donor (2nd IVF round) and due in late August.
I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending anyone experiencing fertility issues to go and see her.”

“Dr Isherwood’s team are nothing short of amazing. I have been seeing Dr Isherwood for over 10 years for both ongoing treatment of endometriosis and pregnancy and birth of two children. Dr Isherwood is incredibly dedicated and gives 110% to every patient. She is always up to date with the latest in treatments available. It is actually enjoyable to enter the lovely offices and see the welcoming smiles of her staff, Marlene and Tracey. I would not like to contemplate how I would have managed my endometriosis without Dr Isherwood and her team and I am so grateful for the pregnancy and birth experiences I had under her management.”
