“I can’t rate Alison highly enough. I am pregnant with my second IVF baby (age 41 now; first at 39) using donor sperm. The second time was much tougher than the first and took 4 failed transfers before finally being successful. Alison guided me through, kept me positive but realistic, explored potential tests, techniques and options with me and helped me reach rationale conclusions. She is very personable and supportive. “

    About

    Dr Alison Taylor is a Consultant Gynaecologist and Subspecialist in Assisted Conception and Reproductive Medicine at The Lister Fertility Clinic. She developed a keen interest in Subfertility and Assisted Conception after joining the team at St Thomas' Hospital as a research registrar in 1991 in the early days of IVF, when a new clinic was being established. After completing an MD research thesis on 'Parthenogenetic Oocyte Activation as a model for embryonic preimplantation genetic diagnosis' and being the first trainee to complete Subspecialty Training in Reproductive Medicine at Guys and St Thomas, she was appointed Consultant and Senior Lecturer in Gynaecology and Reproductive Medicine at Guy's and St Thomas' Hospitals in 1998. There, she ran the Assisted Conception Unit, was the clinical lead for Gynaecology, and was involved in organising the teaching programme for medical students.

    In 2005 she joined the team at the Lister Fertility Clinic and now has almost 30 years of clinical experience in IVF and Assisted Conception. She enjoys working as part of a multi-disciplinary team dedicated to providing excellent care to individuals or couples with subfertility including more complex cases and recurrent implantation failure, recurrent miscarriage, polycystic ovaries, reduced ovarian reserve, those needing treatment with donor sperm or eggs, and those wanting fertility preservation through egg or embryo freezing. She tries to be empathetic and supportive, while providing clear evidence based guidance about different investigations and treatment options available.

    At home she enjoys time with her family, playing the piano, ski-ing, cycling, gardening, baking and long walks with the family labrador!

    Alison has been incredibly thorough and clear throughout all of our consultations and treatment, doing so in an incredibly professional manner. She took the time to understand us individually, and to research and discuss options with other professionals in the team to ensure we had explored all the right avenues, and hadn't missed anything or wasted time and money on tests that weren't necessary. I would whole heartedly recommend Dr Alison Taylor, as a trusted and caring consultant who treats each case very much individually, and provides clear and detailed explanation at every stage.

    Dr Taylor was my consultant throughout my first (and successful) IVF cycle at the Lister. This first cycle resulted in four frozen blastocysts, one of which we subsequently had thawed during a frozen embryo transfer cycle which resulted in the birth of our daughter. Now that our daughter is 20 months old, we are seeing Dr Taylor again prior to a second frozen embryo transfer. I have nothing but high praise for Dr Taylor and her team. Our entire experience at the Lister from start to finish was professional, efficient and with a warm bedside manner which made the experience as relaxed and stress free as possible. I always felt that I was in the very best hands.
