Image via: flagsofnet.comBRIDGETOWN, Barbados — Barbados Fertility Centre (BFC) will be featured in the Vanguard documentary ‘Under the knife abroad’, which airs on Monday 14 November 9:00pm PST/8:00pm CT on Current TV. The documentary looks at the future of US healthcare and how many Americans are forced to leave their homes for affordable treatment outside of the US. BFC is a JCI accredited centre of excellence for IVF treatment and is considered to be one of the leaders in the field of reproductive medicine with success rates as high as 71% for women under 35. These success rates are attributed to the cutting edge technology employed by the medical team combined with the relaxing option of undergoing treatment on the Caribbean island of Barbados, which is only 3 hours from Miami and 4 hours from New York with daily direct flights. With treatment costs less than half at BFC of what US couples are paying for IVF at home. The airing of the documentary also coincides with the launch of The Fertility App, available from the App store, which has been developed by BFC to support every woman who has made the life changing decision to start a family covering everything from ovulation through to a positive pregnancy test. Dr Juliet Skinner, head clinician at BFC said. “We pride ourselves on offering our patients the latest in technology to help them conceive, and are delighted to be able to share our knowledge with women across the globe via The Fertility App.” Infertility affects one in six couples worldwide, and if a couple tries to conceive for more than 12 months without success then they need to seek medical advice. The app has been designed to help women conceive with an ovulation calculator, which is connected to the calendar. This then syncs with the users device to send them alerts and reminders. The user can add appointments and medications and there is a full medical glossary explaining all the medical terms associated with both male and female fertility. There is also a full description of pre conception supplements and medications and their effects on the body when trying to conceive. BFC have also compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions from their patients and there is a healthy lifestyle section to improve a couple’s chance of success. Within the Fertility App there is the opportunity to connect with BFC on Facebook and Twitter for daily updates from the medical team, they can also watch videos on the BFC YouTube channel and connect with other people trying for a baby in the patient support forum. If a couple have had no success after 12 months and need medical assistance they can also connect directly with the BFC medical team from within the app and request a consultation with Dr Skinner or go directly to the BFC website for more information.
