live chat doctor
I am a general obstetrician and gynaecologist working in East London. I was diagnosed with POI whilst undergoing IVF; my husband and I now live a positively childfree life. You might meet me on one of our regular Live Chats.
I am a medical student hoping to eventually specialise in Obstetrics and Gynaecology. I learnt about Daisy Network through one of my lecturers and instantly knew that I wanted to get involved. Since joining Daisy, I have been really excited to have been a part of the big changes the charity has made and our growing support system, I am particularly looking forward to being involved in Daisy’s mission to raise awareness and knowledge of POI and improve support for those impacted.
I am bioscientist by background with over 12 years of experience in technology transfer and partnership development in the agricultural sector. When diagnosed with POI at the age of 35, I was shocked to hear that in only 10% of cases the causes for the condition are ever identified. That led me to volunteer my transferable skills to help the Daisy Network set up new research partnerships aimed at promoting a better understanding of POI.
I’m 20 years old and I am one of the volunteers here at Daisy.
Little fun facts about me: Love Harry Styles and all things 1D, love a good cuppa and some chocolate! I’m an actor and dancer! I’m a bookworm! I love yoga and I’m currently at uni in London!
I was diagnosed myself at the age of 16 with POI back in 2014 and am now collaborating with Amy to try and help raise awareness about POI in teenagers. I think it is so important to keep the conversation going and to not feel embarrassed as it it a part of us which I think should be embraced! So please feel free to get in contact with us about ANYTHING! We are here to listen and respect what you have to say. Speak soon peeps!
Daisy Network in Australia
I was diagnosed with POI at 31, just 4 months after giving birth to my sleeping baby daughter, Alexandra. I spent many difficult years battling its effects and always felt a sense of solitude because of the lack of support and information available in Australia about this disorder. I am delighted to lead Daisy Network's expansion to Australia and hope others will join me to build a network that will provide a community and be a voice that is dedicated to supporting women living with POI and their loved ones.
I am a 24 year old Video Editor based in Bath who after being diagnosed with Premature Ovarian Insufficiency at 15 years old, is now dedicated and passionate about raising awareness of POI. I aim to continue sharing my unique experience with women of all ages, ultimately tearing down the taboo of premature menopause within society.
