A FLINTSHIRE entrepreneur is helping couples with fertility challenges to realise their baby ambitions.

Kate Morris-Bates, who founded the InsideOut Wellness Centre in Mold, has officially partnered with Reproductive Health Group (RHG) – the UK’s first fully integrated fertility and women’s health hospital.

As a preferred partner of RHG, InsideOut offers patients a range of complementary therapies from reflexology to hypnotherapy and other treatments which can help boost fertility. These include acupuncture, which is thought to reduce stress levels and increase blood flow to reproductive organs.

Kate specialises in cognitive behavioural therapy techniques, believing preparing the body and mind is a critical step in the journey towards successful fertility treatment and full-term pregnancy.

And Kate's own past experience of miscarriage heartbreak has been a key influencer to her setting up the partnership.

She said: "I had six miscarriages within the space of two years and was about to start IVF when I fell pregnant with my daughter, who is now four; therefore, I feel very personally invested in helping other couples who are still experiencing fertility challenges.

"It’s an absolute privilege to prepare them in body and mind, which is a critical step in the journey towards successful fertility treatment and full-term pregnancy.

"Naturally, we at InsideOut are delighted to have been recognised by a leading private health clinic and to be their only North Wales partner for fertility and women’s wellness services and treatments.

“I had the most amazing, humbling experience recently – being present at the transfer of an embryo to a lady who is undergoing IVF at RHG under the magnificent care of Professor Luciano Nardo and his support team,” said Kate, who is a ‘2019 Inspire Women in Fitness and Wellbeing Award’ nominee.

With five locations across the UK – including Warrington and Wrexham – RHG was founded in 2014.

Professor Nardo, board and clinical director of RHG, said: “We work with a team of preferred partners to support our patients through fertility treatment, pregnancy and beyond.

“Kate and the InsideOut team are a welcome addition to our Group; they share our commitment to high-quality standards and outstanding patient care.”
