PRESS RELEASE: Are online image libraries airbrushing women over 40 out of society?

Type in the word ‘women’ into photo libraries and there’s no shortage of stunning images of young, beautiful girls available, but as the Talented Ladies Club (TLC) are increasingly finding, if you want an image of a female over 21, the pickings are slimmer than the limbs on the nubile youngsters and worryingly out of touch with modern-day society.

Harley Street Fertility Clinic Press Release

Greater Support in the Workplace Needed When it comes to health and wellbeing, there are many policies set up in the workplace, but that often doesn’t include fertility issues and treatment, something the Harley Street Fertility Clinic believes needs to change. As the annual Fertility Awareness Week takes place between 29thOctober – 04thNovember, the team at the central London clinic are calling for greater support in the workplace for people who are undergoing fertility treatment or who are involuntarily childless.
