BBC TV presenter Tessa Dunlop is announced as host of the Q&A stage
This year, at The Fertility Show, we will be introducing a brand new feature – the Q&A stage which is in association with Fertility Network UK. For the first time, the stage will give visitors the opportunity to put forward their questions, either openly or anonymously, to a panel of fertility experts and leading representatives from fertility groups and charities.
Hosted by BBC 2 Coast presenter and acclaimed journalist Tessa Dunlop, who herself has faced her own fertility struggles, the stage will run across the day on Saturday 5th November and Sunday 6th November. Leading experts including Professor Adam Balen, Dr Jane Stewart, Mr Sam Abdalla and Professor Allan Pacey will take to the stage for a series of back-to-back expert Q&A sessions throughout the 2-day show.
Tessa Dunlop has recently spoken openly about her experiences related to secondary infertility. After her second round of IVF she finally got passed the first trimester only to lose her baby to an infection at four months. Tessa shared her story of personal pain and anguish in the hope that it would break the taboo around the topic.
Tessa comments, “It’s an honour to be hosting this fantastic new stage at The Fertility Show. Seeking advice on fertility is daunting and you can find yourself overwhelmed by the options. Everyone’s fertility journey is unique and important, so we’re urging people to come along armed with questions. I’m looking forward to meeting all the visitors at the Show and hearing more about how the UK’s top fertility experts can help guide them in the right direction.”
With Tessa hosting the stage, we hope that visitors will be inspired to ask questions with confidence in a warm and welcoming environment. So, if you’ve got an unanswered question on fertility – whether you’re happy to speak out or if you’d rather submit a question anonymously, then make sure you get your tickets for The Fertility Show.
New for this year is the Q&A stage in association with Fertility Network UK which will host sessions with key fertility experts such as Haitham Hamoda, Prof Geeta Nargund and Prof Adam Balen.
