I decided to go to Newlife in Thessaloniki for my final attempt at egg and sperm donation due to their good reputation and high success rates. It was absolutely the right decision. I am a single woman who has been trying to conceive since 2006. Before going to Newlife I had treatment at three other clinics however my experience at Newlife was far superior to any of these clinics, in the UK or abroad. I was matched to my egg and sperm donors very quickly and within a matter of weeks I was out in Thessaloniki having my embryo transfer!
The staff at Newlife were wonderful...Dr Dovas and Chrysa the Embryologist were so kind and caring, as were all the staff. I received regular updates on how my embryos were doing, and I knew that I could always call a member of the team if I had any concerns. I was lucky enough to have seven beautiful blastocysts on the day of transfer...I never had embryos of that quality at any of my previous clinics. I was very nervous before the transfer due to previous bad experiences however Dr Dovas and Chrysa were very understanding and reassuring and the transfer went very smoothly.
The clinic itself is in a lovely building and it is spotlessly clean. I had my own room for before and after the embryo transfer and it was nicer and more luxurious than most hotel rooms! I really appreciated that I was given as long as I needed to rest after the transfer. The customer service was outstanding at all times.
In conclusion, I would not hesitate to recommend Newlife...it is a very special place. After many years of sadness and heartbreak, I am now pregnant with twins. I would like to thank Dr Dovas, Chrysa and Ruth for everything they have done for me and to wish everyone at Newlife continued success in the future.
