On the weekend of May 20th and 21st, The Endometriosis Foundation exhibited for the first time at The Fertility Show, 2023.
This fantastic event founded by Laura Biggs, owner and CEO of Intuitive Events - the team behind Let’s All Talk Menopause, Let’s all Talk Mental Health & The Fertility Show, provided us with the opportunity to join the show by providing a platform for individuals to engage in honest and open conversations around Endometriosis and its complicated relationship with fertility.
The overwhelming response and the stories shared by so many shed light on the many challenges faced by those struggling to navigate the complexities of Endometriosis, along with the impact the condition has and for some, continues to have on their ability to conceive.
Our wonderfully bright, stand out exhibitor stand - kindly sponsored by Solopress and managed by our lovely team of volunteers, provided a safe space for people to come along, take a seat, and share their unique experiences with Endometriosis.
It was at times overwhelming, and equally heart-warming to see and connect with so many others who share similar struggles.
Endometriosis often poses significant obstacles for individuals trying to conceive. We were therefore delighted to have been given this opportunity to offer valuable resources and insight, coming from a place of experience.
We were also joined by the incredibly talented Charlotte Boundary who set up beside us to showcase her art.
Across the weekend attendees had access to fertility specialists, in particular our very own Dr Sriviya Seshadri of CRGH, and other healthcare professionals who provided guidance, support, and potential treatment options.
Our very own Founder and CEO, Carla Cressy was invited as show ambassador where she took part in a number of seminars throughout the day, one talk in particular was to share her personal journey with Endometriosis and Infertility. Joined by Dr. Vidya Seshardri, this particular seminar shed light on the critical link between Endometriosis and Adenomyosis and Fertility.
Dr. Seshardri's expertise further enhanced our understanding of the intricate relationship between Endometriosis, Adenomyosis and fertility, offering valuable knowledge and empowering individuals with the information they need to help make informed decisions around their care.
The Fertility Show marked a pivotal moment in raising awareness and fostering support for those affected by Endometriosis, highlighting the urgent need for continued research, improved diagnostic methods, and enhanced accessibility to treatment.
We are grateful to the team at Intuitive Events for inviting us along.
