The ambition of Cardiff Fertility and Reproductive Research [CFRR] is for psychology to be integrated in all aspects of fertility and reproductive healthcare.

Together, with our collaborators, CFRR have been pioneers in fertility and reproductive health psychosocial research since 1997 in the School of Psychology, Cardiff University.  Our collaborators include patient advocates, the public, third-party and voluntary groups, healthcare providers and practitioners, educators, policy-makers and industry. Collectively our work has lead to:

  • Psychologically informed policy and practice
  • Evidence-based resources for self-management and support
  • Prevention, early intervention and awareness initiatives
  • Development and evaluation of training resources
  • Patient and public involvement and engagement, dissemination and impact
  • Understanding of global influences and local challenges
