Darlington is a historical market town in County Durham and on a tributary of the River Tees called the Skerne. The town has a distinct Victorian look because much of its growth dates back to that period. Darlington can also boast being the site of the world's first ever railway tracks, and remains an important stop along the lengthy and significant east coast main train line. The Darlington branch of the London Women's Clinic is housed in the Woodhouse Hospital, which itself is within 5 acres of the luxurious and beautiful Morton Park in Darlington, all within easy access of the city centre. Counselling services are available to supplement the calming effect of Morton Park, as well as patient support groups, all to ensure that the emotional aspect of your care is not neglected. IVF is the main treatment offered at the Darlington clinic, and with good reason as it is one of the most popular and effective assisted reproductive technologies in many cases and clinics across the world. What is IVF? IVF stands for in vitro fertilisation, a process which involves the use of fertility drugs to first stimulate the release of eggs which are collected for the treatment itself. A semen sample is collected as well and treated for the procedure. IVF itself will take place as sperm and egg taken from previous stages are put together in a specifically designed glass dish under the care of scientists who monitor the process. Under these conditions an egg is likely to be fertilised by the sperm, and is then incubated to grow until a point where the young embryo can be transferred to a womb to grow as with a normal pregnancy. Intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection, or ICSI, is offered alongside IVF, and is an exceptionally useful protocol that earned its developer a Nobel prize. ICSI takes one sperm cell (making it very useful where few viable sperm are available) and injects it directly into an egg cell by means of highly specialised apparatus. Once within an egg a sperm cell has a much higher chance of fertilising it, meaning much higher fertilisation rates and a technique that requires fewer sperm, and eggs to yield more embryos that can be transferred. These treatments are provided to the suberb HFEA recognised standards of the London Women's Clinic.
