Which clinic? (near Bedford)

Hi. I'm 43 ttc 5 years. Too old for nhs help but no idea where to go from here! I live in Bedford and know there is a clinic in Cambridge and I can easily get to London.
I guess what I am asking is can anyone recommend clinic near me?
Thanks x

CARE Northampton is not far from Bedford. I had three cycles there and although it didn't work for me I would still recommend them, the nurses there are lovely and they also have good success rates and a donor programme. There are other ladies on here who had BFPs and babies there. Personally I never wanted all the travelling into London so it might be a more convenient option for you.

Can definately recommend Bourn. If anything good has come from having trouble conceiving it's being able to go to bourn - such a beautiful place - I love going there. My daughter is from a frozen cycle through Bourn.

FCC train into London Bridge and you're at Guys ACU. Amazing state of the art facilities and straight talking consultants for whom nothing is too much trouble. They get great results but don't blow their own trumpet. If you have to go private anyway, you can request the senior consultant (Mr K) and he and his nurse will take personal care of you.

I'm also at Bourn just started my first cycle of fet as unfortunately first icsi cycle didn't work but its a lovely place and I love going there everyone treats you so well and has the time of day for you there is no distinction between private or nhs patients and everything is kept very discreet.

Good luck hope it works x
